Haven’t seen this guy yet myself but considering we are the smallest team in the comp, with our backs especially small, having a giant centre could do us the world of good in the future.
Obviously he’s only young and has a fair way to go but he’s exactly the sort of player the club must keep at all costs. A position we’re perennially weak in and we’d have to pay overs to sign other quality centres. If the chance to develop our own top class centre comes along we have to take it.
Don’t like the ‘Folau’ comparison though. Kid doesn’t need that.
EYES ON TEENAGE PROSPECT
Wests Tigers have a battle on their hands to hold on to exciting 17-year-old prospect Moses Suli.
The centre started the year playing SG Ball before earning a call-up into Willie Peters’ Holden Cup side where he’s played two games.
Tipping the scales at 103 kilos, the youngster has been described as a young Israel Folau by a club insider.
While the Tigers want to keep Suli, they have some competition on their hands with the Storm, Dragons and Raiders all interested in the young gun.
