@Winger He was actually pretty good for the Lions last season except for maybe the last couple of games where he seemed to have run out of steam.
I honestly wasn't surprised that he won Wellington Player of the Year. I was surprised that he was playing well though, because I'd never seen much from him in previous seasons, even at U20s level.
He's ordinary. A plodder who has a good attitude it seems. But still a plodder. I watched him closely at 6 as I felt this would be his position if he is to make it (obviously at 1.90 he's not a lock). what a disappointment. So not a lock yet not good enough at 6. Even at NPC level.
One difference between winning teams and those that aren't is coaches who can see this.
