Is he currently in our "bubble"? I can't see him named in QCup this week and think he only played in the round 1 game.
Amazing he is still only 26 yrs old, seems to have been around a long time - is his body/injuries etc just not up to NRL these days?
Oates played for South Logan Magpies and scored a try there because Souths Logan Magpies haven't had a stroke and left paralised down the left side like the 2020 Broncos (Fifi excepted). He didn't need to go looking for it like he has had to playing for the Broncos. I think his confidence still needs a bit of work and get a few wins under the belt before returning to NRL.
I'm not sure if Walters had identified the breakdown on the left wing but we've already used the left wing a lot more already this season. Last season it was Fifi who was effective with the ball now it's Herbie. Eventually other teams would have realised we don't use the wing and put more bodies in front of Fifi. Fifi was bloody good but he was a ball hog.
