Needs that bulk back!
Definitely. Imo he Looks very easy to get through atm (especially close to the line) and hasn’t looked as good in attack barring a couple of games. Still a good player and will definitely hit form again. I just think he’s better suited to playing with a bit more weight than he is now. Feel he’s more affective.

Aitken is strong for a centre but Ramien is supposed to be too. Aitken bullied him.

I don’t really think his weight is the issue. He has struggled with consistency since his first stint at the sharks.

Consistency and bonehead decisions have always been issues, for sure.
Could always count on him to be powerful though - it’s a worry if he has lost any of that as I can’t see where he has gained anything in return

Yes he does have a brain fart moment on occasion and can be up and down in regards to consistency but I thought I noticed him getting bullied a few times this season whereas you hardly ever saw that in previous years.

He always looks like he's on the verge of having a breakout season. It just hasn't happened yet. The best he played for us was a few years ago, just before he left to go to Newcastle.

Last year was his best year by a mile, he was probably better than Sifa for the majority of the year but without the hype package.

He looked much stronger when running the ball, so possible slimming down has affected him.
In saying that his decoy runs in attack have really benefited Nikora and I think their combination is only getting better.

Not sure I’d say I thought he was better than Sifa for majority of the year but agree Ramiens best year

And to your last point also, we have very balanced edges, both left and right and even player to player. Pretty much any one of our back 5 and second rowers could have a big day or a quiet day based on how the game breaks down vs say a Rabbits where you’d always expect it to be Graham or AJ who stands out not Tass or Milne. However I guess if I had to pick one of ours I have the least confidence in right now… Ramien

Numbers wise they're pretty equal in every category for 22 other than Sifa's metres, Jesse had a few more trys and line breaks

He also had at least two clangers which basically lost us games. He was good, just Sifa was better for me
