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.
I think you mean JJ the try scoring machine.

I like Garrick. I’d happily take him if he was available and we needed a spot filled

Brimson’s always been an interesting case. Very talented player who doesn’t really tick enough boxes in any one position. Dominated as a junior playing 6 because of his speed and strength, but passing game was never his strength. Very good tackler and runner but not really big enough to have the same impact as other centres/wingers coming out of his end. I thought when he came in to that NRL that they might work on his passing and transition him to being a bench hooker / utility.

Problem is that he is paid like a core/rep player but he is really just a fancier version of Connor Tracey. Great physical tools and 110% effort, but doesn’t quite fit anywhere.

You nailed it

Fancier version of Connor Tracey

Brimson is a good call. Titans should release him imo and use that money on a halfback.
