At this stage looks too slow to move laterally or to get outside his opposite. Maybe he can draw a couple to him and offload - that may be his best attribute.

As for Rankin - please no, there has to be another option out of MCK, Suli, Heleta, Kev.
if he can attract multiple defenders and get the ball away, he'll be very handy in attack.
in Ivan we distrust

Rankin is possibly the single worst player I have ever seen play and he was easily the worst on the field on Saturday too playing against a bunch of reserves

How he is even considered for nrl boggles the mind

It is going to take Idris 1/2 a season to get back to the level required and there is a fair bit of doubt he will ever reach that level
