speaking of Taylor ...We have seen the results the titans had with paying 1 mil for "potential". Taylor
What have you say him down for an IQ test of something?While TPJ has great physical attributes, sadly he is lacking between the right and the left ear and that is why you will never see a consistently great player.
Essentially what I am saying is it isn't enough to be physically gifted if the mind/mindset isn't there. The best players are often the brightest as well and end up being the most consistent in their careers. With TPJ, I fear his career will be patchy.What have you say him down for an IQ test of something?
TPJ is a weird one. He is not performing at the standard he needs to be currently but it's clear that he has it in him. I think we should continue to be patient with him. Mind you I don't think we should offer him any more than 5-600k for minimum 3 years. If he doesn't want that than let's just focus on our other talented young fowards coming through.
We will be fine either way. It's in our Spine and backs where the tougher decisions lie.
I was mainly just having a joke. Tbh I agree with a lot of what your saying.Essentially what I am saying is it isn't enough to be physically gifted if the mind/mindset isn't there.

If he ends up being 80% the player Taumalolo is...we will have a very good third prop at the club.Seibs needs to put TPJ back on the edge, that is where he works best, but stay as a Bench option untill he can play better, at this point he isn't worth spending big money for though, but if he can get his play in order he can be one of the best forwards in the game, his most dangerous weapon is his offload not his running game though that's why he is better for the edge because he can be close to the faster players who can take advantage best.
This forward pack would be so good. Imagine it in the year 2021..So we have a bit of a dilemma about where to play him, don't we? His defence pretty much screams "front row", he can be extremely loose, and if he charges out, it's better if you've got other defenders right there with him. On the other hand, his attack just seems to be better in the 2nd row - he's had less games there, but probably still more damaging ones than in the middle of the field.
With Gillett struggling and Fifita still developing, maybe Seibold should leave him as a starting 2nd rower on the right for now? See if he can get confidence back that way and then see how it goes?
We could possibly just change what his role is at lock. Have him float out to the edges whenever he likes. Allow him to offload like he did tonight as well as ball playing.I'm starting to think we'll be better off with TPJ on the edge. He can terrorize the halves all game.
In Fifita's time in the backrow, he hasn't shown what TPJ showed today.
