Only just watched the video. You just want the guy to succeed. I would take one Isaako over 5 Milfords. Covid and his fathers passing have bought him time over his development but he needs to get his shit together by seasons end to continue as FB.

I don't see the same as others do. I think he's progressing tremendously well. I'm perfectly happy for him to continue as he has done thus far and continue throughout the years whether it's fullback and in the thick of it. I think he'd go well at 5/8 but he's adaptable and he's capable anywhere. Obviously I leave out front row second row.

I think all his shit is nicely heaped in a pile, very much together already.

Totally agree, I love the bloke and I think he can be a more than solid player for us for a long time. Maybe not at fullback, but I'm happy to give him the benefit of the doubt for now. He has improved over the course of this year IMO, and if you write off the last two (which I'm happy to do given the circumstances) then that's all you can ask for. There are a few elite fullbacks around the comp and while I don't think he can quite reach those heights, I do think he's a pretty important part of the club and the group. More than happy to keep him as long as he continues to improve his game.

Love your work, Jamayne, you do your father proud every time you run out onto that field.

My kids watched this and my daughter said it is the best football show she’s ever seen and isaako is now her favourite current bronco (behind Darren Lockyer who retired before she was born lol) 🥰

This didn't age well. FMD. Idk when that NRL piece was filmed but if it was during the week, it's clearly put him off. Sorry for putting the jinx on you JI but tonight was awful.

Just don't let her watch the game. Will call DOCS if you do.

In what area do you see him developing?

His defence is a joke.

His positioning is a joke.

His support play is non-existant.

His running game is intermittent.

His mistakes are killing us.

So where is this improvement you see?

I feel sorry for him for the off-field stuff, but that doesn’t mean Kevin has to pick him. He is clearly not in a headspace to play NRL and Kevin is doing a disservice to Jamayne and our club by continuing to pick him at this point.
