    Hard to tell because they never passed the ball to him. Has spark and should be given a go if Foran is out or can be used as a sub.

    From what I watched Lewis is a far better option

    Played good for Fiji but I don't watch much of the lower grades.

    Hopefully Pay doesn't destroy his confidence by using him the wrong way or too early.

    Looked the goods, wasn't scared to get involved and didn't make any mistakes, good debut.

    I was at the game and from what I saw he moves like cook, I hope he is a good player.

    He’s still not ready for first grade although he did warm into the game. Hopefully he grows from today and gets more hungry now he’s had a taste.

    First time I watched him. Didn’t show much in attack and was found wanting defensively. Could be first game jitters but his defence has been his weakness in Reggie’s from what other posters say.

    Wakeham is way more of a natural playmaker then Lewis is. He got thrown in the deep end to some extent today as he was only told he was playing first grade on his way to playing reggies. Still a lot more development to go in Wakeham though.

    Probably the best pure halfback we have atm. Great passing game, kicking and vision. Physically he isn't anywhere close to firstgrade and needs a good year in reserves.

    His defence isn’t anywhere near ready for nrl, he can’t defend in Canterbury cup
    I just hope pay doesn’t ask to much of the young bloke before his ready

    Wakeham isn’t a centre, he just might be our next sherwin.
