What are people’s options of him I think by the end of next year he could be in the top 10 centers in the game what I understand is that he has played mostly in the back row I am just so impressed by him I understand why Cronulla chased him so hard the last time he was off contract
What a player. Given a challenge from IC to lose weight BEFORE pre-season, comes back in immense shape and started the season the way he left off. See him as a Nathan Brown style lock in the future, but at this point why fix something that isn’t broken atm down that right edge? Him and Thompson were huge for us.
I thought he was one of our best yesterday and a persistent threat. Considering he was marking Latrell, who honestly didn’t get a heap of ball, but Marsters constantly beat him in attack with the footwork and offloads.
Didn’t look up the stats but his first 4-5 hitups he only went to ground w the ball once, then Roosters started putting 3 men into every tackle. Thing is, 3-man tackles out on the fringes are dangerous, sets you up for some big ruck gaps with a quick PTB.
Was a real threat all game, like he was against the Cowboys in the trial, and I remain very impressed.
Man of the match. I know we’re waiting til after round 4 to restart contract talks, but i wouldn’t be waiting. His value is only going to rise. He’s suddenly our 2nd choice goal kicker too.
Long term a definite back rower but for someone that a year ago had never played centre to suddenly be our number one centre is amazing and a testament to the hard work he puts in off the pitch.
