French was playing at Fullback and scored the first try
Jersey Flegg report
Good weekend with the three grades winning.
Especially impressive for the Flegg side. They had six players promoted to ISP and were missing a couple through injury, even debuting two 17 year olds in the game. I spoke to Nathan Cayless and he said they weren't expecting the Flegg side to do what they did against the Dragons side.
We were at anz early for the Flegg game. It was fantastic and the Flegg boys were outstanding, very vocal bunch. Great game and really enjoyable to watch. We hope to see more of these games prior to the main events.
Your son will enjoy seeing these guys come through Amanda.....one of the shames of today's structure is that many do not get to witness the dynasty's emerging.
How'd Chicken legs French go in 1st grade Mandy?
Didnt notice him out there, must have missed him lol
Who would have called that hey.....
He scored the first Wenty try from a report of the match
I remember watching the try from Stefano in the Under 18s Origin and he carried 5 defenders with him before shrugging them off to score.
Ray Stone is shortish in a forwards sense these days at 180cm tall but he's solid at 95kg and likely getting bigger.
Oregon is highly regarded but I don't think we'll see him in the NRL this season unless they can push through a request at the NRL as he's not Top 30.
Super, I have noted that Stone has played a reasonable number of games in the 9 spot earlier in the year and last year, when there was injuries in the top squad.
There's a possibility he'll shift towards hooker due to his size. 180cm and 95kg is quite good for a hooker and could take some pressure off Mahoney. It'd be a tough ask of Reed to have him as our 80 minute hooker next season, and a busy player like Stone who is bigger could easily fill in from the bench.
