Egan is 10th, or just squeaking into 10th admittedly, based a large number of performances that have been acceptable level. He just showed glimpses of running in his last few outings. If he can add a running game then he will be at the top of the young gun grouping although still short of the elite top 5.There's a pretty clear cut top 5 at the moment and then a grouping of players who are either vets on the decline or youngsters who are solid but yet to separate themselves one way or the other.
Brailey x 2, Robson, Turpin, Croker, Starling, Verrills, Egan, Liddle, who are all 25 or younger.
Egan might develop further, but I'm not really seeing a high ceiling, or he could stay the same and quickly get overtaken to the point where he's nowhere near top 10.
He's a place holder and our future hopes lie with Otukolo. Hopefully he develops into the hooker we need.
It's used often in Aus to reference NZ which is known for its seismic activity. Nothing derogatory in that.I will ask in this thread so I don't get banned
Taylor made upwards of 100-appearances for the expansion franchise between 2016 and 2021, however, underwhelming performances and the Titans' decision to opt for youthful halves next season saw the Queenslander forced out of Justin Holbrook's side.
Still, with the experience of six seasons of first-grade football under his belt, even if Taylor sees little to no action for the Shaky Isles side, his presence at practice - along with Shaun Johnson - is certain to be beneficial for young half Chanel Harris-Tavita."
Who the hell are the Shaky Isles? Is that New Zealand? Lynn of Tawa would turn in her grave. How long has that expression been around?

If we have a spine where our hooker is ranked say 7th then he will be one of the Warriors strengths we build around for a number of years. He is definitely an asset and last year (2021) he played better than Isaac Luke ever did for the Warriors. Therefore he is the best hooker we have had in the last 5 years.
Listening to the YKTR podcast with Brandon and I’d be surprised if he didn’t go to the Roosters. The way they operate sounds uber next level compared to anything that Cam George or Mohawk could ever dream of!!
Have they announced the re-signing of Manu yet? I know Manu has allegedly told them he’s not leaving, but maybe if they get Smith they can’t afford him after all. Manus a top player but similar to Storm with GI all those years ago, he was the most expendableI said it a while back, its clear the guy wants to be in Central Sydney/Bondi. Its been on the cards for a while and been obvious for the last few months since his dealings with YKTR have been documented
That only thing i didn't predict is them being able to fit both Manu and Brandon Smith.
Can’t help feeling a little warm inside when I see the Dolphins struggling filling their roster and paying overs if true.Junior will also leave, this is coming from someone that knows Junior. As above Brown to the Warriors. Fuck
