Season Review: David Klemmer

There’s absolutely no doubt David Klemmer lived up to all expectations that were placed on him when he arrived at the club this season.

Arriving from Canterbury-Bankstown to a lot of fanfare, Klemmer delivered on the Club’s investment and then some.

The front rower ran for over 100 metres in every single game he played this season, crossing the 200-metre mark on five occasions.

His form saw him retain his New South Wales jumper, where his similar performances helped lead the Blues to a series win.

His stats more than speak for themselves, with Klemmer running for a staggering 3560 metres at an average of nearly 170 per game. His post contact metres alone are incredible, coming in at 1323 for the season. He also provided 23 offloads and broke 26 tackles.

Not to mention his defence, where he made 719 tackles at the rock-solid efficiency of 96%.

Unbelievable, considering he missed a month of football mid-season with a broken wrist.

With Adam O’Brien now at the helm ahead of one of the most important seasons in the Club’s history, there’s no doubt Klemmer will be ready to lift to another gear in 2020.
