Olpherts

Post by Tigersbarmy » Sun Nov 24, 2019 6:08 pm

How do we all think he will do for us ? What are his positives and negatives? Will he be a starter for us ?

Don’t think he’ll be in front of Feki or Eden.
How he goes in training and in reserve games will determine whether he can make himself third choice ahead of James Clare.

No reason James Clare won't outplay Eden. Eden needs to raise his game quite high as I think Clare was the better winger last year.

I think Greg Edens a fine player I've always rated him , yes he's got a mistake in him and this year wasn't his best but him and Feki will do for me
Not sure on Olpherts have to wait and see on him
The measure of who we are is what we do with what we have

Our wingers depend on how we play inside them. Hopefully trueman, richardson and rankin can create plenty of space for our centres and wingers to utilise. Feki and eden should be 1st choice imo eden can score a try out of nothing

Cannot see why we have given a squad player a 3 year deal.

Reckon Clare to get in ahead of Eden and Olpherts.

Think Olpherts and Fekki will get the first shot in starting 17 then it will be up to them with Eden and Clare waiting in the wings.

Feki and Eden for starters on wings for me. As has been alluded to already, Greg has mistakes in his game but he can also be box office and has pace to burn. Something we lacked for large parts of last season.

Positives - Fast, agile and quick off the mark.

Negatives - Still raw. Not played enough SL to get a true gauge of what standard he really is.

Won't be a starter, he'll be 4th in the line. After Feki, Eden & Clare.

What’s the situation with his sight now? Didn’t I read that he only had limited vision in his right eye? As a result, he could only play on the right wing because he could only see what was happening to his left?

This is true, and i know it for a fact because my daughter went out with him for 6 months, the guy has extremely poor sight in one eye, he can only play on one side because his peripheral vision is so bad, i doubt the club even know because he doesn't disclose the problem, i am 100% telling the truth here, i wouldn't care other than i am a massive Cas fan for 40 years and cas went and signed him!! hes not even very good, lets face it!!
