Having just watched the eels v cronulla game( eels being my favourite team since the ella, kenny , price days)...... i couldnt help but appreciate one of the commentators assessment of the eels improvement in form....... he stated thst the eels forwards have always( until this season) been of similar height and build...... he thought that this was there problem previously........ now i know we have had a lot if success at wigan but , personally,i have thought this for the odd forward, our pack has always been short of height imo...... just look at greenwood...... hes added something so different to our attack...... dont get me wrong we have had some decent forwards but again, imo, the taller forwards seem better suited for offloads and stamina....... i know this thread is controversial but the aussies know there stuff and it defo got me thinking.......... that thompson is s tall lad so maybe hes worth a shout as gabes replacement

The club (IL & Rads) admitted after the Roosters game in 2014 that we needed to be bigger. First off that should surely mean in the forwards. Very little has been done to achieve that aim. Greenwood and Bullock fit that profile but for both this is their first full season. No signings, those two apart, have shown we are trying to get the squad up to being a bigger outfit.

If the Eels can do it so can we.

The Eels are playing some cracking footy; excellent in both attack and defence. And what a player Mitch Moses is looking these days!

got rid of FPN though and MM who hit like a train. People slagged off FPN but he did what the coach wanted and didnt miss a game. Got rid of Joel also whos isnt small either
