My original post said "at present". You're having a laugh if you don't rate Sifa in that category in that context.
your original post said he is the best, you are having a laugh if you think he is

its crichton by a mile, then campbell graham

talakai is probably third, but its a long third

its huge, manu struggles going uphill, ala yesterday v the dragons

crichton is miles above everyone, campbell graham probably number 2
Manu needs to get more involved. He's got plenty of flair but the Roosters suffer without that extra strong carry to get them out of trouble. He's big enough to do it but doesn't. Stood out like balls on a bull yesterday.

at present, you are incorrect, its stephen crichton

do you need more help?
At present you don't have Talakai in the top two centres in the game.

That may well change soon, but as things stand right now, you have Campbell fucking Graham ahead of him hahahahahahahahahaha.

There's only one person here who needs help.

Had to laugh at Ennis's commentary yesterday on Manu's try. All he did was catch it and had a clear run to the tryline. Ennis carrying on like he did something special.

You mean like Talakai’s first try against Manly? Commentators jizzed in their pants over him catching it unmarked and putting it down.

Every 'reporter' and commentator are just drooling over any stupid exitable thing they can say or anyone else says at the moment. It's embarrasing... but it must be getting the clicks.

It's ridiculously OTT. Most backrowers would've had a field day given the ball, time, space & defensive clusterfuck Sifa was presented with.

2 games don't make a career, some of the comparisons are overboard

See how he goes defending against someone with decent footwork
He's up to four now isn't he?

Most backrowers don't have the footwork and clean passing he has shown playing "OOT" consistently. He's not just banging and crashing which is what makes it all the more impressive.
Although I agree many would have still done a fair bit of damage in that first half vs Manly

Fitz mentioned today how the people inside him need credit as well

That's why I thought moylan did so well giving him the ball at the right time, plenty of halves eyes would have lit up and over ran it with that much space, give it early to the bulldozer

Lot of pressure on Talakai this week with rhe hype around him following his display against one of the poorest defensive centres in the NRL - whilst not decrying his performance in any way shape or form, he has to back it up this week against a 'world class' centre in Staggs

Could also be the difference between an origin jersey or not.

Massivly so.
He made a mockery out of Gagai in round 4, and can now well and truly stake a claim for a Blues shirt.
Just got to hope that we (as a team) dont overplay that hand too much tomorrow night and give it to him expecting 200+ m in 40mins - but itd be awesome if he did lol
