    Gotta see more of him in cup. He looks like he is physically ready but he has to show some form in NSW cup IMO..

    He goes by Tito on instagram btw. Try for Tito Turuva, rolls off the tongue nicely.

    I think it would take a few injuries, but I’m sure he’ll be in the mix at the back end of the season.

    I full season of Reserves is what he needs

    Yeah based on what everyone is saying he's a bit raw like what Betcats said just then.

    No. He needs a season in NSW Cup. No need to rush him after almost no footy last year.

    I dont think one trial game, his first at this level, is enough to say he need a full season in NSW cup.

    At the start of last year we all thought Staines and Laurie were way off and yet they managed to debut well in the NRL with no reserve grade comp for them to build in, they made NRL debuts after not playing any real game for weeks.

    Some guys are slow burns while other guys just exceed expectations and develop quickly.
    He is one I am keen to follow this year to see how he progresses.

    If he wants top dollar. Let the Dogs blow their cap for him. I wouldn't be bending over backwards for him.
