I'd imagine Brenko Lee will probably be back in the squad if he's healthy. So him and Holmes will likely come in for Sami and Coates/Capewell.

I'll be honest. I was watching the first half on my phone as it sat next to me as it worked. And for the second half I was listening on the radio as I picked up my daughter. After the first half, I was remembering how the Broncos tore up the Sharks a few years back while Capewell was playing as a makeshift centre for them. I wished we had gone for a proper centre, who was at least a strong defender, as all I could keep hearing was how every time the Maroons got the ball to Capewell he was easily covered and the play died with him. Or how easily the Blues were able to exploit that combo with JAC scoring one and nearly scoring another. That player was not BLee of course, more hoping for a fit and in-form Opacic type player. Man was I wrong!

That's why I had such low expectations. Tautau Moga absolutely dominated him that night and he's had a few performances just like that. I've always had a high opinion of him as a backrow but really didn't think he was the 'safe' option that many thought he was in the centres. There were certainly enough moments there to justify that concern, but to his credit, he came up with some huge plays for Queensland. I wasn't even upset with the try he let in, the fact he took that cross-field kick earlier just gave Queensland enough time to close the game out.

I've probably been one of the most patient people here with you, I've given you the benefit of the doubt with a lot of the opinions you've held and declared.

But at the risk of turning this personal... pull your fucking head in.
Just trying to be positive 👍🏽👏🏼🙌🏽

The try was an easy one but was also a nice reward for him during a pretty solid debut. Some great takes, solid runs. The kid played well.

That take when he got absolutely hammered by Wighton was the highlight for me. That was brilliant under pressure and he just got straight back up and kept going. He has so many weapons that once he realises how fast and strong he is, he will be the best winger in the comp. He is a few years away from that though.
