Im going to go against the grain a bit and say Kaysa has a lot to offer and will play a big part this year, hes better than many give credit to imo.

Yes Kings more orthodox, a good player,probably can play to a game plan a bit better, he has a bit more structure to his game than KP but with comes a more predictable game.

KP has a few qualities that are hard to measure, his up tempo style of play and energy lifts our pack, his enthusiasm is infectious out there.

Before he was injured i really thought he was really finding his feet at hooker, you could see his confidence building as a player, he was maturing as a rake.

He might not be what youd call a natural hooker but hes got a lot to offer and more improvement to come and nobody can doubt the blokes got a big ticka, he really has a go out there.

Dont count him out Eels fans, im predicting a big year from him this year.

  • Hopefully they can teach him how to pass in the off season
    • He needs to improve his service from dummy half

  • His the starting 9 without doubt. Arthur has him already there.
    • Mate he has 3 to 4 guys already there at training, king, mahoney, pritchard and occasionally a utility..


  • Hope so. both our hookers are average.
  • Snake, it doesn’t really matter if he is going good or bad, the poor little bastard will be injured after 4 games anyway.

    • King is just as injury prone as Kaysa.

  • Problem is he gets concussed a lot. I feel more confident with king there
    • This is my concern too. Whch has a massive efect our bench. He just has that ability to get his head in the wrong place. 

  • True, maybe Smith is the answer.
