    Not a bad blog at all. Well written.

    Kahu is a great professional. One of those calm players that is always solid. Very similar to Boyd and if he stays injury free, would have a very similar playing style like current Boyd.

    Was good to see them both play fullback for their countries last year during the test. Kind of like a mirror image of what he could be like in the future

    Kahu is certainly something special.
    That was very honest, and he was man enough to recognize his mistakes and grow from them.
    I never really realized the amount of work it takes to come back from injury. Or how heartbreaking it is.
     
  3. So if Kahu didn't do his MCL in 2014, he would have likely been our 5/8.

    It would have been interesting to see how he would have handled that position. I dare say he would have done better than what was served up that season by Hoffman/Barba.

    Yep. Not only did Hook's Plan A (Milford) get detained at the airport, his Plan B (Kahu) missed the flight too.

    He's gone from being an injury prone pain in the ass to a crucial pillar in the team

  9. I've never seen a more nonchalant field goal.

    He was just so chill about it.

    Stoked the bloke is finally playing regular footy after all those injury troubles.

    Kahu is all class. He's easily my favorite Bronco.
     
  11. Reminds me of Yow Yeh in terms of attitude and heart, some players take being on the field for granted, a player like Kahu who has had to work his backside off with the injury setbacks he has had to endure grabs it with both hands and doesn't let go, he is all class IMO.

    X2 No fuss, no media drama. Just a professional who can pretty well play 1-7 when needed. He is class for sure.

  13. And he's not full of himself either...
    I have so much admiration for this kid.

    Is it just me, or does this sorta sound like he's not 100% happy being a winger?

    His speed worries me as winger in the long term but his attitude is A1 ! and everything else is top class. If he could improve his defence, id love to see him back in the centres again.

    All the more impressive because he's definitely not 100%. He's not comfortable running the ball at the moment, but it's not the running it's the collision that he's avoiding. He wouldn't be out there if it was major or at risk of further damage, but he's very cautious and timid.

    Point being, we're not even close to seeing his best. When he's finally able to put some steam in to his running and not worry about hard contact he'll be at another level.

    Just sounds a bit self-deprecating to me, rather than unhappiness, but who knows.

    Has anyone else noticed that Kahu has changed his entire goal-kicking routine?
    His practice over the break is clearly showing. It looks better than we've had in years. Looking forward to seeing what his percentage is like further into the season.
