    For about a month Kaufusi was getting over 100m off the bench and making around 20 tackles before his injury. Oregon is a better runner of the ball but Evans has the superior offloading ability, and may be a little bit quicker.

    Many of Evans offloads are just pointless. Unlike Jnrs who are timed far better and create breaks and tries. Not a lot of Kane's offloads put our attacker in a better position.

    Agreed. He throws them without thinking. King of the ineffective offload.

    Seems alright to me. Never even considered whether we should sign him and at what cost.

    A lot of people thought he would be worth a shot.

    I don't like him for two reasons:

    (1) he knocked us back several seasons ago; and

    (2) his output on the field wouldn’t be any better than what Brown, or our backrowers, can provide. Imo.

    He injured his shoulder in 2018 which kept him out for the year and really hindered his development, in particular his defensive technique and confidence.

    EGJnr was the king of the stupid speculator offload. Long live the King.

    I think Feleti Mateo might have been the prince.
