People in the future will look back on our premiership winning photos and think that Canberra Milk was our primary sponsor for 30 years.

That big red patch on the sleeve is certainly an eye sore.

If you just have a quick glance at it you’ll feel nostalgic, it’s kind of similar to the red iron on Winfield Cup GF patch. Good times! :D

I know it is ridiculous to go off still pictures, but every week they put the pictures up and I see Adam Cook and he just looks such an athlete.

Can’t wait to watch him in NSW Cup this year. Just watching him in that one game last year it was probably too fast for him and he wasn’t ready, but there was just something I saw that made me think this guy is real quality.

That three year deal for Lui at $250k certainly proved a bargain. I’d like him to stay for that price, but I wouldn’t begrudge him a final contract at another club. Papa might not be happy though.

Looked like he had a good passing game. I agree on the lack of pace. He'd need to find a few extra yards or it's probably a case of developing a kicking game and moving into 5/8.
I thought Kris was looking good. Wonder if he squeezes in and they play him in the centres for round 1.

Does it have as many ads as the Melbourne version. I find the number of ads makes it impossible to listen to. Most of you would think it is impossible to listen to because 99% of the time it is about AFL.

I don’t think Cook lacks pace. What I meant was the pace of the game meant he was rushed at times which meant it wasn’t a stunning debut but I just like the look of him. Hard to judge too much on one game but looking forward to seeing more.

Fair enough. I think he was too slow. But as you said only 1 game. Thankfully we get a year of reserve grade to get more of a look.

Thought Cook looked well out of his depth against the Sharks last year. Will be interesting to see if he can develop further with a full year in Reserve Grade and push CNK at some point, given it's stated he has decent talent, but he's firmly behind CNK and Aekins at the moment.

Had a couple of touches early then seemed to go MIA

I remember it more like this too. Having our own NSW cup team is going to be so beneficial for these guys

Cook excited me. He didn’t do much but he showed with a few touches that he’s a natural ball player from the back.

Unfortunately his growth as a player could now be severely stunted now that we’ve signed Aekins. If the club are serious about Cook as a project I’d like to see him at fullback, not the new stop gap short term signing tbh. (In NSW Cup)
well, I guess you could say that I'm buy curious.

I watched a replay of the Cronulla game the other day, interesting that Cooktook the kickoffs and we got the ball back on the first three kickoffs.
He was better than I had first thought, but our lack of possession in second half ran him into the ground. (and a few others as well.)
