This guy is coming along way better than what I thought, some real slick dummy half runs and general play and also some strong carries when he got pushed out to the forwards!

I thought he did really well again...

Should’ve had more minutes also, SG has inherited Pays horrendous interchange management - diabolical stuff!

He was great today when he came on, a couple of passes behind Foran other than that was very good
Yeah mate, the left > right passes on those occasions let him down a little but otherwise, he just gives us a bit of spark, which we lack with JMK.

The way SG uses JMK and Katoa is proving a good combination. We haven't had a hooker replace another during the game for many years. I can see this getting better with time.

I prefer him in the back row role from last week then at hooker. His service is pretty average to be honest but he is a point of difference. He’s a poor mans Brandon Smith which isn’t meant as a bad thing he can be used in the same way but just isn’t as good.

I like he has played backrow of the bench and shows aggression. He’s been good and I think SG deserves some praise for playing him that way. We should be 3 from 3 with him in charge.

His service When first came on was great , but got sloppier as game got in , I put it down to fitness and lack of game time

I like him coming off the bench in the back row but not hooker.
Jmk should be left right out!! Just shit and lazy.

Ridiculous it's taken this long for him to be in the 17.

I like him more as a lock forward with utility and impact value off the bench.

He has definitely been good and has been used well in the rotation. Not sure if he got tired later though, some of his left to right passes were terrible and burned tackles with the first receiver just diving on the ball.

That aside, I like the energy and aggression.

He reminds me more of one if our past players Joel romelo.. who also had a few promising games but ultimately became nothing even after moving to storm
