State of Origin Rep

I actually noticed fittler had haas running wider in his first stint. It created a bit of momentum for cook to go off but he definetly didn't look natural out there. Could be worth testing out this season though. Still a middle forward, just throw in the odd edge run to tire the playmakers and with a quick play the ball get a big spread out to the other edge of the field...I think Tino has a heap of improvement in him tbh. He isnt really a front rower so its hard to compare him to Haas, he's a back rower imo. Its where he always looked the most destructive whenever i saw him coming through. Like you said, i think Payne needs to get some physicality into his game. As good as he is, he is pretty soft for a bloke his size, but hopefully it will come as he matures. I honestly think he will match Payne in terms of his career. If they play him back row at the Titans, they potentially have the best two back rowers in the game.
I just wont get behind Haas in that blue shirt though. I'll be happy if we bash the shit out of the bloke in game 3. Filthy cockroach
