Thanks TF, that's where I heard it 👍
I'd like him to be that rangy type of player, hard to bring down and to offload.
We can't just hit the ball up and lose the wrestle.
Must get quick play the balls or offload.
I reckon offloads under pressure will be something Sheens will be rehearsing in the preseason.
We can't just keep using AD's bombs as our 5th tackle option.
Have we fogotten the 40/20?
Tuki is a big body and reasonably quick, has to utilise this if he wants to be in the NRL.

if Talyn Da Silva is the long term replacement for Api, hoping he gets a run on the bench in 2023 at some point as a taste

That numpty doesn't even understand basic nrl rules
Id have a guess and say 50% of NRL players dont understand the rules. Players should have to do ref courses in-between gym and their Instagram sessions. Would certainly help to lift a teams footy IQ level...........and the Tigers severely need that.

They have Badge as their referee coach, but judging by some of his decisions over the years I doubt he knows the rules as well.

Assuming you’ve seen him play more than the trial game. Does he have a good kicking game from hooker
Can’t say that he has much of a kicking game, apart from the short grubber, but Jake doesn’t either. It’s more about his craftier Attack and stronger Defence, his ability to play lock, and his general effort and hunger to win a game.
Farah is the guy to teach them how to kick from dh.
