Surely if he's looking to play 15-30 minutes off the Bench at NRL level he should ideally be playing around 50-60 minutes at Dummy Half at Queensland Cup level on a regular basis and seeing how he handles that first?I don't think it was done correctly to give him the best chance. He was playing seven up till hurting his foot for Queensland and then he had six weeks off. When he came back he went to interchange for two games, then half then interchange then half.
His kicking game and tackling I was impressed with last year but his running and decision making even at half looked laboured. He had five try assists in 12 games in the halves. Two assists when at hooker. From 17 games not great. But it's a hard gig coming in and playing halves.
Tweed at Reddy was his best game at half he ran down the left all day and made breaks. That game he looked sure and confident same thing against Hunters looked like he knew his role and was good.
He looks like a player that needs clarity around what to do.
