I don't think poor Jordan is much of a public singer!

He looked a bit hesitant to join in with the John Farnham classic being belted out post-match by the rest of the squad. Even the Argies tried their best to sing along:

For context, tradition in Australia is for teams to sing a victory song after they win, but Force (with few wins to speak of!) choose to sing a random song if/when they win. Last time they won it was a shocking rendition of an Adele hit.

Browning got a try assist for Nottingham today and in the Player ratings on the rugby paper had a 8/10 (Highest Nottingham rating and joint highest with Hartbury's openside Clementson)

Sounds like he had a very good game.

That’s good to hear RB!!

Sounds like he has all the attributes to make a Watson style winger from what I’ve heard - pace, some power but runs intelligent lines. Looking forwards to seeing Joe develop.

I’m also very excited by browning, he showed during prem 7s he has the power and pace to be a great winger. Not sure what his high ball ability is like and due to our game plan its something borths will want in a winger i’m sure.

Plenty of time to develop high ball and kicking at his age. Its the key attributes you can’t really coach as easily of speed and power, which by all accounts he seems to have. Agreed, very excited to see more of Browning.

Wonder why we’ve still seen nothing of Sam A-R in a Cov shirt?
SAR has only had a weeks training with Cov. They had last week off. I'm sure he'll feature soon otherwise what's the point.

Looking forward to the Cov game this afternoon. Their starting no 6 had a belter of a game last time out against Nottingham. Sam Lewis on the bench, not sure if he'll come on as lock or 6.

The pace element is why we should try everything with Olowafela as well, you can't coach that.

There is enough of the Matt Tait in him to think he is worth persevering with.

Olofella is nowhere near Matt Taits league and a totally different type of player anyway imo

Personally I think Olowafela, Aspland-Robinson along with Worth are competing for 1, maybe 2 places back in our squad.
Used to run around with an 11, 14 or 15 on my back.

People were saying that against McPhillips not long ago. Borthwick has seen enough of him to give him a chance to stake a claim whilst on loan. IMO he's the least likely to be retained, but he's being given a chance, up to him to try and take it.

Worth looks like he has all the bits you want to be a really good 12, but has never been given a proper go there. The fact he covers more than one position might help him.
