David Stagg: What a contrast

When he used to play for the Broncs his defence was never in question, that was his job but a year under Hasler has provided him attacking talent I didn't think he possessed. I hope he continues to play in this fashion.

definately underrated player. Was surprised no NRL club were interested in him.

I think it was the timing that was the issue, clubs were unsure as to salary cap and how much money there were getting from the TV rights deal (some pundit mentioned it the other day, can't remember who)

IMO he still isn't much of an attacking player and never will be. But not in a bad way. His stature means he'll never be able to bend the line, so his running game is more like an extra back, useful for scoots to relieve tired forwards, but little impact. He will, though, tackle everything that moves, and once he gets used to how the team works as a defensive unit, will be extremely valuable at being at the right place at the right time to tighten up the middle.

His attack last week was good to see, but just a result of good positioning.

His ballplaying skills are severely underrated. I hope he continues to hit those holes even though he kinda runs like a gumby when he is in free space.

For all his shortcomings in attack, he is one of the few players in the NRL that actually know how to hit a hole with the right line. It's a dying art these days.
