No, just his intensity apparently. However it clearly wasn't there for the majority of 2021 either so I'd have to imagine there's more to it than that feeling he had at the end of 2021 for him to drop off.
I'm not even convinced he lacked intensity, i just said i could see how it could effect him. His form and limitations just started to show. I think once people got past his effort and big hits in defence there wasnt much else to his game. As i've said a lot, he got hyped up because he wasnt Andrew McCullough, people wanted a change. Hand on heart though i could never say he didnt give his all in a Broncos shirt, he just wasnt a good enough player in the end and thats not really anything to do with his effort or his intensity.
You would have seen him in Queensland Cup. His game has always been based on effort, he's never really had the tools to be a good, starting hooker in the NRL. Look at him at Redcliffe, he shared the role with Pratt and there really wasnt much to choose between them.
