    What about it? That’s two years ago. In his most recent games in first grade he has been a below average mistake-a-thon, which is what I’ve been saying all along.

    My point was he makes 150mtrs a game.
    Sivo has these games where if it was Bevan Fench we all would be crying for his head. Too often he jogs to the line and to often he has lazy games where doesn't do any of the hard yards.
    He is also hopeless under the bomb and attempts to catch them when better of letting the defender catch the ball and tackling him.

    Genko isn’t a first grader. No harm in saying that. He’d still be within the best 480 players in the country, just not the best 272 (could easily round that to 300 and probably higher)
    Sivo can be lazy but it’s only his second year and tons of other wingers can be the same (e.g. Semi). Difference between him and Bevan is Sivo isn’t going to get physically dominated.
    And Blake does that skip because he can. Why run straight into the line to get smashed by 3 tacklers making little difference in metreage gain and having a slower play the ball?

    Absolutely he does, but would you drop him for Genko?

    I reckon Sivo was very lazy last game yet the game before he was dynamic. Why does this happen to some our players? Its a worry. Was Sivo the disgruntled player wanting more money? If hes on 550k as reported its overs even on his best day. I love the guy but last game was very below par.

    Got to point out before people get carried away with it

    $350k sounds about right. $550k this year then $450k over next 2 years would be spectacular but more likely he’s on the $350k and we’re getting slugged for his match payments from last season this year (although $200k seems a bit high)

    Two poor games around the same time period, he was probably carrying an injury. It's too small a sample to judge anyone on. At least look at his mediocre career as a whole.

    Probably carrying an injury. You have just made that up

    The point is it could be anything. You looked at two games and implied it was reflective of his ability. When a sample is big enough things like injury and off field issues all come out in the wash. When you look at two games in isolation they could easily both be outliers. Do you think his two games this year are a good indication of his ability?

    His two games this year showed me that he is a reserve grader. Just like his two games last year. I hope he stays at the Warriors forever. His error rate and poor defence will fit their systems perfectly.
