second this!He's stock standard but has a quick play-the-ball. Nothing flashy about him. His line speed was sort of **** though this week.
yeah saw the same with Royce as with oregon, but deduced his return injury might impactYeah thought there was period where he was slow and not as impactful. Same with Hunt, but I guess it's his first game back from injury.
He was much better today and I think will improve a lot as the year goes on.he is warming into it and looking more urgent with his runs, like a less rollie pollie Junior Paulo and with more of a Royce Hunt kinda build - a steam lined fridge if you will that you can put to work
I like him - understated but with various qualities. Good solid benchy, teams need players like him but I think there is more upside to him and we havn't seen it all from him yet and he is a player I am happy to see more of. Pretty good way to swap out Tolman IMO
Does he need to do 11 day stand down?
Said he passed HIA but club chose not to send him back on. Does that count as failing?
Category 1 symptoms include a player losing consciousness, showing balance disturbance, suffering impact seizures or taking no protective actions when falling.
Category 2 signs include lying motionless, possible impact seizure/tonic posturing/balance disturbance, slow to stand & suspected facial fracture.
They also said he 'experienced concussion symptoms at halftime' but then passed an HIA... and then they chose not to play him anyway.I am curious about this too.
NRL.com has him out. Could just be journos assuming "failed HIA = out" though.Should be named today to play this weekend
Interchange forward Oregon Kaufusi (failed HIA) was ruled out inside the opening 15 minutes last week and is set to be ruled out. Braydon Trindall could return from an ankle injury and come into consideration for a bench spot.
