The advantage is he is much younger than hayne, so its not a last ditch effort like his. Looking forward to seeing how it all pans out.
Also fuck you paul gallen.

The guy who got suspended for 4 games for taking performance enhancing drugs calling for a life ban. What a fuckhead.
The guy who tried to rip the stitches out of Laffranchis head
The guy who grabbed the wheels of Graham
The guy who slapped the head of an unconscious Cordoba
The guy who coward punched Myles
The guy who racially abused Paea
The guy who is shit at Ninja Warrior
To be fair, if there's an expert in shitting on the integrity of the game, it's Paul Gallen.

unlike hayne, i'm not sure he has much chance for an offensive skill position role. special teams maybe but i dunno, i have much bigger doubts over holmes then i did hayne.
being younger helps, i think holmes is more likely to stick it at for a while too, hayne put in 12 months of good effort but couldn't wait to get back to coasting back here but hayne was more comparable to NFL athletes at the time then holmes is. he is gonna have to pick up the fundamentals of the game more then hayne ever did and he's got 15 years worth of training on that to make up on other guys
i hope he makes it, i'll follow him, he'll be given a chance by someone but much less likely to play a regular season NFL game imo
He'd be an awfully one dimensional TE. Him blocking is a scary prospect.@ryno_ wrote:
He's also younger then Hayne so probably has a better chance at adapting physically. His 40 yard time is also meaningless, since Hayne and other prospects spent months training specifically for a combine, where as Holmes hasn't.
If he stacks on 20kg and can retain his mobility, he'd likely make an OK TE prospect in the Gisieki / Engram mold. I dont really give him much other chance, I dont think he'll ever have the route running that the guys who have played the game since they were a kid will have.
Good one@Pieman wrote:god he would be a terrible TE...
His only hope is punt returner or maybe safety/cb
The bloke doesnt have the footwork that hayne had so I cant see him making it to be honest. I hope he does, wish him all the best and no doubt he will give it his best shot. Wish him all the luck in the world.
40 yard times are held in such high regard over there.. if his isnt as good as eg hayne then IMO he has slime to no chance of making it.
