    So a combination of Giteau and Sonny Bill according to Wiki and me not knowing what a 2nd five is. Sounds good to me.....

    Rugby tragic here ( up the mighty reds). If he is a combination of those two then that would be elite. We all know Sonny bill but Matt Giteau was an elite fly half (think 7) and inside centre. Pretty much a player who could do everything, defend hard and plug in across the field while racking up tries. At 39 he was still playing in LA a few years back in their major rugby league comp. TLDR: they see him as a playmaker that can also run and hit hard ala Joey Manu

    I remember he was being compared to Latrell when he first came on the scene. Youngsters with an ounce of talent always get likened to the superstars.

    Remember kiah cooper? The next latrell. Spry? The next latrell. Taylor? The next Thurston

    Media love hyping juniors up and then tearing them down when they don’t meet their lofty goals

    Oh yeah any young indigenous kid gets paraded as the next Latrell or GI haha. Easy clicks for media

    I think Cowa mentioned Sonny Bill and Giteau because the Wikipedia page for second five-eighth uses them as an example of players who played the position.

    This kid might not even make it to Qcup level for all we know. CM would be saying he’s the next Joseph Manu if he was with the Broncos though lol

    This and the overuse of “legends” and “stars” are really examples of poor journalism, as if we needed any.

    Happy New Year.

    Maybe given we are his hometown we should throw a market value offer at him, nothing over the top and see.
    Excellent bench player or fringe first grader and injury cover type.
