Made a point about this bloke on another thread and then it occurred to me this bloke deserves a thread of his own.

He came here last year with high hopes and to be fair got off to a slow start due to ongoing ankle problems and slotting into a new team.   People were expecting a blockbusting, tackle breaking prop and after five games we were looking at each other thinking when is it going to happen.

Slowly but surely fans grew to notice a different kind of effectivness each time the ball is taken in there is a guarnteed ten meters, three taklers are drawn in and made to work to put  him down,  a quick clean play of the ball always follows.  He will often do this two or more times in a set of six tackles.  In the course of a game it often appears he is taking in 25 % of the haven ball and he is often on the field for 65 -75 minutes.

He rarely if ever has missed a game despite playing in the toughest postion on the field and doing a huge amount of work. 

Quite  frankly with injuries to Fats he has single handledly (at times) held together the Whitehaven front row over the last 18 months. 

For a bloke who has 140 plus games in the Aus NRL and 40 plus games in SL his endevour, quality, enthuiasam and professionalism are quite remarkable at this stage in  his career.

As value for money this bloke has been worth every penny the club has spent on him, a huge rap for his efforts and if he does decide to go around again next year i for one would be very pleased.

Another season from Trindall would be excellent, especially if he does come off quota next year.

Another big effort by the big BULL. He has always been a workhorse, you look at his work rate figures and he has as good as the best.
haha i had a laugh at the kick, not often a front rower kicks ;D. top effort.
