Appreciate it your opinions based on your expectations.
I would suggest that Tolman probably did the exact job he hoped he would, though I think it's fair to say that no-one was particularly excited about it. We sure warmed to the guy though, especially with that milestone try (crash play courtesy of Brailey, the legend).
Thought Hunt all but locked down a starting spot, which continued his trajectory and only increased my man love from last year.
Rudolf also took a step forward to lay claims to a starting spot.
Arguably Kennedy dropped off somewhat from last year, though it was a pretty disrupted season for him.
And though I might agree on Wilton, I don't think I can blame him for it. I'm pretty happy to pick up a pitchfork with the rest of you loonies and march over to Wade's place.
And yep, Talakai...! What was it you thought made his season average? Just expecting a lot already?
