By looking at his play, I am 100% confident CC has told him to ease himself in.

We haven't seen anything yet. He will be a kennel favourite.
Yep, I said it last week. CC has definitely told him to settle into the team first. This week he has taken some kick pressure off burton and we could see the rewards with more quality from burton

I've watched him play every game bar 1 since he joined us. He will make everyone say Barba who?

Actually he is the male version of Barba, loves the contact and folding ***** in half.

Got video of these tackles? Was listening on the radio when he snapped Foran. Commentators loved it!!
No I am no good with posting that stuff but hopefully someone else does

18 years old crunching Foran making light work of Fafita. Has a running game and wasn’t shy to put a few kicks in all of that in his arsenal at such a young age I think we finally found a good one. Starting 5/8 till season end no doubt handled a full 80 to brilliant.

Can see him becoming one of the best defensive halves in the comp.

Watch Burton improve more and more as KO is unshackled by CC.

Threats on both sides, can kick from both sides which means Burton can finally run more. Then add KOs runs and we are looking good.
Wasn’t sure about his combination with Burton at seven but that combination has real legs in the future the more they learn their rolls and each other’s game the better they will get.
Wasn’t convinced about moving Burton to seven
But it has worked pretty well.

Was a gutsy win, nice to see the boys happy when those try’s were scored. Won’t make the 8 this year and few more wins like that keeps us from the dreaded wooden spoon, more improvement next year to come as well.

I agree scoob, don’t think we will make the eight, but I am not writing it off completely,it’s a tight comp and if we go on a little run after the bye who knows. But I am just glad we are competitive considering all the shit that’s gone against us this year.

Can't get over how good he is in D for an 18 year old, let alone a half. Surely he'll end up transitioning into a lock at some stage?
Oh God. Not prince Lewis all over again.

Surely if he is a good half we actually leave him in the halves for the next 10 years

Hope so. I just sorta get damaging forward vibes from him but I've been wrong many times before lol
