    Reply to Craven @ 8:30 pm: Also a VAristy Cup player comming through. With the correct cousching he will be a very good player.

    What I like abot him he does not go to ground when someone tries to tackle him, reminds me alot of NZ players who does alot of leg work in the tackles.

    Like him alot.

    Agreed. I like how seems to attack space between the opposing players and do not try to run into and over them as his default setting.
