He was arguably at his best prior to the banning of the shoulder charge during the Cleary era at the Warriors. Big motor and when he played on the edges in the second row on the odd ocassion had a dangerous offload.
No doubt for WTs this is a good buy mainly because he’s reuniting with Ivan.
James AND Marty need to fire up for this one. Both released from the Dogs and they’ll want to try and dominate;
Not sure if niggle is what is needed against the likes of Graham, Eastwood and Sammy Kas. Just out and out mongrel! A couple of hard, brown Kiwi boys running it up hard against their old mates.

He was really close but after the session where he was running freely he complained of soreness afterwards. Possibly aggravated the tear (hopefully not a new one), plus a bit of bruising around the area, maybe a haematoma.
See how he pulls up over the next couple of weeks, and hopefully the medics have got their diagnosis right and get him back on the paddock asap.
