de chaves

Post by amazing tiger » Wed Dec 31, 2014 1:49 pm

he has played a lot of times for us but his performances hevent been that great. was he worth buying? the only thing i can say about him is that he has been helpful when we have had lots of injuries.

What a curious question. Yes he was worth acquiring. He may have taken a little while to settle but he seems to be playing pretty well. Very useful addition when we have had injuries to the likes of Slater, Parling, Thorne etc.

I thought De Chaves has been pretty epic in the last few games, against Sale he really threw his weight around and seemed to be involved in nearly every ruck and maul, for the money we are probably paying him as a 5-6th choice lock he is great value for money

Handy young player. Been playing pretty well. Will likely only improve. Not on a big wage.

Good value for me.

He's been excellent whenever I've seen him and one thing that stands out is his commitment and will to win. Pretty much every time he's played he's been bellowing at his teammates at kick offs trying to get the side going. V good acquisition, physical, committed and gives a good backup to Slater (when Slates is fit)

+1 - always looked very committed and skilful when I've watched him.

He looks better every time he takes the field, a few others could learn from his attitude, always looks to give his best and his best is certainly improving.

I agree with all the other replies. De Chaves has been impressive in all his appearances for Tigers. I can only assume that amazing tiger did not really believe what his own post but was just trying to stir up positive comments about a good player who does not get mentioned much on the forum. Mind you, there will be plenty of competition in future for places in the second row now that Peterson has signed.

I am more than amazed at Amazing Tiger and his opinion of Seb de Chaves! His attitude on the field cannot be faulted.

Also his attitude is excellent. Whenever I have heard him interviewed he has appreciated his position in the pecking order and that he is here to learn from the likes of Thorn, Slater, Deacon, Parling and Kitchener. He appreciates the opportunity he has here and is prepared to work to improve - a true Tiger attitude.
