What's Brownies track record of blooding youngsters (besides Ponga) Will he take a punt on Walsh and Turner and give Ale another run?

Go for it son.
If anyone can bring on young Walsh it is Brown. He had the Ponga experiment and ran with it. Using that example, Brown moved Ponga to the halves because it seemed what the team, not Ponga needed....I am interested to see if he does the same with Roger Tuivasa-Sheck....(not to the halves, somewhere like centre or wing to make way for Walsh).

I guess it will depend on what Walsh shows in training.

The Safitis, Best, etc. were all brought through under Brown during that 3 year period they were getting flogged.

Brown can build a club and youngsters, his knock is he is just a team builder and personally i've never rated his attack plans.

Brown is an interesting personality.

He has a temper, a polite way of saying he used to have anger management issues, He was a bit of a firecracker as a player, and his first coaching stint was marred by that incident where he slapped his own player across the face.

I have a lot of respect for the man as a person, he has managed to grow and be this supportive man that man manages players well, while saying in the media that the Warriors were atrocious in their attack.

He can get away with it, he is not the sort of person any more that offends his dressing room by being outspoken.

The side we have yet to see from him, is the side where he rips the roster apart and plays guys who are so green they are going to get flogged all season, like he did year one at Newey...the strip down that holds him dear in the hearts of Newcastle fans to this day.

As such he is shrewed and ruthless.

I think that he would be a great guy for the Warriors as a football manager, he would be excellent in the role of bad cop to a skilled fg coaches good cop.

We all know he is not the worlds best NRL coach. But he has a will for doing what it takes.

Most fans have been happy most of the time with his use of the bench and his selections.

The one game we won comfortably had Jazz at hooker for like 50 minutes, although he was probably their best at 13 last week, I’d move him to the bench and give Egan a 15 minute rest as well as play some lock, Egan has been pretty sucky, but maybe would be more effective with a break. Jazz isn’t that bad a dummy half as far as forwards go.

Harris back to 13 now they have 2 props coming off suspension – pick 3 out of Evans, Ale, Jamayne Tounua-Brown and Afoa.

The backrow rotation has gone a bit pear shaped, roosters game, Katoa 37, Murchie 60, Ben Murdoch-Masila 36 minutes, manly game Katoa 34, Murchie 80, Ben Murdoch-Masila 46 minutes – its not easy to get the interchange exactly how you want it, but surely they should be closer to getting 2/3rds of a game each. Murchie dropping the ball in the 77th minute, tired player.

Not opposed to Walsh having some sort of role, its not like he can build combinations in reserve grade, whose he combining with? The Redcliffe halfback? Some teenage winger who won’t play unless the whole backline gets poisoned?
