Grif­fin’s big im­pact on the big men

Rugby League Week - - News -

M ARK GEYER LOVES GOOD FOR­WARD PLAY as much as any­one in the game, and he’s seen the Pan­thers pack go full steam ahead un­der An­thony Grif­fin.

“Rea­gan Camp­bell-Gil­lard has gone to the next level as far as play­ing with in­juries goes,” Geyer says.

“Isaah Yeo has come ahead in leaps and bounds, so now he’s one of the first for­wards picked.

“Leilani Latu has turned into a rep for­ward un­der Grif­fin, and young James Fisher-Har­ris is a rep star of the fu­ture.

“Grif­fin is more of a for­wards coach but when you don’t com­pli­cate it and ev­ery­one knows where they stand, it makes life eas­ier for the backs as well.

“The best thing is that there’s no su­per­star they rely on. Trent Mer­rin and Bryce Cartwright are piv­otal to vic­tory, but it’s not the end of the world when they’re in­jured.

“It’s just a re­ally good team en­vi­ron­ment where they en­joy their footy.”
