It's funny how the LU meme for years was stick was robbing Jack of origin by playing him in at fullback/5/8th and not centre and now he's not strong enough to be a centre.
That's absolute nonsense as an aside. One of the most common ways the raiders score is through either Jack breaking tackles on the edge or teams over commiting on Jack and opening up gaps for other players.
His positioning was poor in defence no raiders fan is going to argue that. He should be playing 5/8th anyway. I think he would compliment Cleary quite well.
But again the problem was upfront. Who plays centre and who plays in the halves doesn't matter if we are losing yardage so badly. Unless people expect Cleary to kick a 40/20 every set we need the forwards to actually stop Queensland strolling down the field and to gain field position for the nsw attacking players..
Still think he has the tools to be a quality centre but obviously needs the practice beforehand.
Definitely had a poor series.
