Maybe he can teach Ramien a thing or 2 in D
Jesse didn't miss a tackle against the Warriors but if you are referring to making legal tackles both players have struggled with discipline though Jesse a worse offender, especially when it comes to suspensions. Wilton more of a ruck infringer who sometimes gets a tackle wrong.
Fifita can does and will continue to win them games but it is very hard to get 1.2 million value from him week in week out in an otherwise weaker team he is supposed to be the saviour of from the edge.
Haven't quoted your whole post but agreed with it and good points, especially the difference between building your reputation and getting upgrades over time that get you towards the $1 mil mark vs. bursting onto the scene and getting a very sudden and drastic pay rise in the $1 mil range.
The former type of players typically have a longer more consistent career with less chance of it going the other way with a drastic pay decrease when it all falls apart.
Fifita was and never will be about value at the Titans. He was brought in to help their club win a couple extra games a year (something he does). For a club that will do well to win as many as they lose that could be the difference between playing finals or not
Let's say the Titans didn't put all that coin on Fifita and instead spread it around a few positions going for a more 'balanced' team. Would they really be going much better? Doubt it
, typo, didn’t mean tower, meant rower, as in 2nd rower
Rowing is an Olympic Sport - no wonder he is so good
