Dunno about that mate, I wondered the same...
But I think he just needs to play in a half decent side and he'd be fine.

Few times.
I hope he makes it, don't get me wrong....
It's just every year there's always a few of these guys.

We had Gamble who was a forum fav for reasons unknown who is an absolute dud and really proved it, despite all the forum hype.

When an assistant coach of a Qld Cup side lets me know about this "beast" (his words originally , not mine ) we are about to pick up , my ears stick up

He may not be the next Woods , Fifita , Lazarus ,Webcke or Civonaceva but props rarely crack it at 19 years of age

I'd like to think Mikaele will make it - He's still growing into his body and the club isn't rushing him - he's had a few ISP games off the bench. Looked pretty massive next to a few of our FG players in the pre-season. Another off-season will do him good and he could be one to watch next season.

Getting plenty of FG at Manly - and not playing too badly from what I've seen. He'll improve still.

Better than Liolevave. At least he has cracked first grade.

I'm hoping he can compliment our experienced blokes and round out our pack.
