Just putting it out there, that this kid needs to step up his game. I fear he is just in idle mode this year and isn’t showing the desperation and focus on the field that is needed from him.
He got owned by Latrell last match-up. He really needs to be switched on in defense and I’d like to see him get more involved in attack, not just dummy half runs. He needs to take a leaf out of Thompsons book and fight a little harder for every inch. He needs to make it personal with Mitchell tonight and seek a bit of redemption.
Ultimately I’m concerned he isn’t a centre. I mean I’ve seen more from Mbye in a couple of games at centre than Esan all year. I’m not sure he would handle second row at this stage either. If he wants to continue to play centre, he needs to bring more to his game like running angles and finding his offload and is it unreasonable to want your centres to score some tries.
I’m just waiting for him to really stand out in a game. C’mon bro your a Kiwi rep.
