Luani isn't up to regular NRL but behind Farah any hooker worth his first grade salt will probably go elsewhere to get a permanent spot so what can you do

Teegasm, I dont agree with the hammering Luani is getting... but he is a weak option. He sets at DH like a fly half, it telegraphs the direction he is going, also that there is no threat of a scoot, so allows defensive lines to rush up at full throttle and meet us at the advantage line.

Hookers at NRL level have to do more than just distribute the ball. Stepping out of DH slows down the defensive rush, they have to keep structure, it stop fliers out of the line... it also allows the offensive line to be moving onto the ball providing fluidity to the play.
