Gower is a great servant to the mighty Eels.
A heady player who is versatile.
no problem with this, a handy backup who will be in our top 30 and can cover all of the forward positions if injuries occur.
Definitely a depth player and a strong one at that. Gower is a good contributor when called upon and has done the job every time he's been called upon this season. It's important to have players like him in your squad given he can cover both the edge and middle. Nathan Brown plays a hundred miles an hour each week and Beau Scott is about to enter the final year of his contract so having Gower available to step into the breech when injuries/suspensions strike our forward pack is great. Out of the back-rowers in the lower grades I think we've only got Ualesi and Stone who'd be able to jump up and, as we've seen with Tepai, you don't want to throw them into first grade for an extended period straight away.
Next year we'll have:
as back-rowers. Frank the tank only signed a one year deal and hasn't been used a lot this season.
