Starting to believe the imminent turnover of our roster has something to do with our seriously poor start to the year. I can't comment on Katoa being better at 5/8th but if people are thinking this then there is more going on than is obvious. The shopping of players wouldn't sit well with the squad. There is so much chatter about our players not being nrl standard not just here but in the media in general. We have a terminal confidence issue that won't go away until we have our mass clean out. Sadly.
Hopefully there will be some highlights this year but I'm not expecting very many. Avoiding the spoon might be one.
As much as Averillo has done absolutely FA in his time in the halves and considering that yes, in 10mins of game time, Katoa applied himself better in that position than Averillo, overall, Averillo is still the better option.
Though for me, it’s super clear Averillo needs to only think about running the football, he’s not capable of taking on multiple responsibilities expected of halves. This is why he’s been better in the centre’s and wing, but I’m keen to see how he goes at 1.
