The Queensland selectors and I must have had a higher opinion of him than you. Collins was a stand-out in a strong Broncos pack and his runs off the back fence used to be the impetus for Berrell to play out the back.
His biggest issue was trying to stay on the field. He missed the majority of 2016 and by the time he returned, he was off to Bondi.
It wasn't like the Broncos didn't want him, they offered him a contract but the Roosters made him a deal that was too good to refuse.
It worked out for him, but let's not pretend he was some no-name player that nobody saw anything in until the Roosters came along.
You're right he couldn't get on the field and 38 games in three years, leaves plenty of question marks- I took into consideration his broken leg. He even played another 38 Cup games across three seasons at the Roosters. Up until 2020. 2015 was by far his best year at Brisbane but he was always behind Joe O and Arrow for me.
Persistent sure, hard worker, but he was on the bench a lot he didn't start and just tried hard he wasn't consistent in his performance.
