Overrated: Manu; fantastic player sure but plays selfish footy imo

Underrated: Jaimin Jolliffe; think anyone who is familiar with me on the forum knows I love an honest hard-working forward. I think he's going to have a huge season now that Tino has been ruled out.
53 tackles this year for 0 misses in a horrendous titans side.
Bring him home.

Overrated - David Fifita
Blayke Brailey

Underrated - I would’ve said Edwards but that’s old news, this year it’s Tago and Leo Thompson

Over - Burton & his ****ing bombs that everyone seems to squeal about but the opposition catch no worries.

Under - lots, but Garrick & Croker were good shouts
Good call on Burton, was just thinking before I was surprised no one had mentioned him

Thought we would have seen Nanai by now as well tbh
Would have been my less controversial shout for overrated

I think a lot of young players get over-hyped early. Nanai imo is a much better player than now than 2 years ago, but the hype has died down because the Cowboys missed the finals and he isn’t scoring tries from bombs every week.

Pretty common for a young player to come in and perform really well for a while and then have a bit of a dip. The grind and all - plus once opposition teams have a month worth of video to study it makes things tougher.

Nanai very similar to Nikora in this way imo. I think both have come out the other side of this.

I'd still like to see him get through some more work, especially inside their own half but your right that hype has died down somewhat.

I admit Cowboys often play a style that doesn't help him there though.

Also similar to Nikora there.
