I think Ramsay will struggle with the rigors of first grade. The days of skinny, fast wingers really do look to be a thing of the past.

Daniel Tupou is a great example of this. The turnaround in his career definitely came on the back of becoming stronger and a real threat in the hard rucking runs for Easts. Even the gun fast flashy wingers like Addo-Carr are pretty bloody muscly and durable.
well, I guess you could say that I'm buy curious.

Ramsay might bulk up like Dugan did.

He looks like a junior worth extending his contract in my opinion.

But certainly his debut was overhyped and Valemi added some dollars to the wingers contract.

No we didn't. Valemei made a few defensive errors and then the commentators went overboard, because of hair. I'd be intrigued to hear where Ramsey sits on Fui's hair scale?

Not a fan. Not a great deal of personality with it. Needs to be more than a man-bun to make a move on the Fui Scale
Feel free to call me RickyRicky StickStick if you like. I will also accept Super Fui, King Brad, Kid Dynamite, Chocolate-Thunda... or Brad.

No doubt pushed out the door by McGuire's arrival. Have to admit he looked a long way off NRL fitness levels in his appearances this year. Struggled to keep up with the game.

Don't think lack of KFC was an issue there.

I went for a feed after the Gallen fight and my local KFC was closed! It was a big issue.
Apparently Merrin stepped aside so the Dragons could upgrade one of their development players. Seems like he's always got to share a slice of the pie.
