I don't think he looks tired at all. He is 23rd in the NRL for tackle breaks, defending at over 90% efficiency and is averaging over 110m per game, including 278m over the past fortnight. Also only missed one tackle from the last two games.
I would of thought the older players would,d get more tired.
Opacic however has outplayed him the last few weeks. I've been quite impressed by Opacic and the way he moves and reads the game. Id rather he stays in the side and Waqa on the wing.
Simmonson offers little compared to Waqa.
It does make 2023 interesting however. Dunster,Cini,Russel would all be gunning for a wing spot with Simonson. We could have 4 of the best NSW cup wingers going around.
Might mean Waqa has to go back to centre.
