Didn't know he kicked goals too, that's always a bonus
He has scored 14 tries in first grade with 8 of them coming from doubles while usually being accompanied by other attacking stats so it's definitely mental thing with him.I think he has the skills - to me it is about attitude n confidence around the phyicality of the game and intensity of involvement
The difference would be Pots could spend maybe an hour a week with him, "The Facilities" Turner is probably spending 10+ hours a week with him.You would think even Potter would offer more than Turner. But I agree with everything you said bro. Avo will have a few shakey moments and will need to improve his handling under the high ball, but he has all the skills to develop into a top line FB. He just needs to put in the hard work
Yeah like for instance, Mick Potter.The biggest thing with his stint in at HB was the knowledge gained from the workings of a NRL team. The direction, the strategy and learning from opposition halves up close would have been really good upskilling in order to read the game from the back.
Its funny because i said earlier this year that this would be Jake's break out year and thought i was looking like an absolutely dickhead but it looks like he is starting to develop into the player he should be... here's hoping!!
Also heard Potter say Steve Turner is helping with Avo closely, now Stevie is a former rep back but if we are going down that path surely the Club could hire a genuine ex superstar FB that could work close with him?
I think Gus gave him huge wraps on his pod, said he expects he will play first grade later this yearWatch for Rob Toia #4 for QLD. My brother in-laws nephew, I think he has a huge future. Unfortunately he’s with the Chooks. Would be nice if Gus is watching all these boys closely!
