I was underwhelmed at his signing, how wrong I was, what a finisher and his appetite for the ball is great.

Let's hope he gets some ball as he is clearly a speedster with a finishers instinct.

It's a long time since we had a real speedster (Tom Varndell?). I was in favour of the trade, not because I think Ed Slater is a bad player. Far from it and we are feeling his absence, but I fear that in the medium term his knees will not last out. Wingers who can score tries out of nothing - Tom, Wade, Rokko are a real asset when times are tough.

Pity we could not get a better deal than giving Ed away.

He certainly is good. It seemed that only him and Genge were interested in the fight.

Jonny is a shining light in a worrying start to the season.

No point in having the lad in the team though if you don't get the bl00dy ball out to him!!!

But surely it's better to have Bateman, Cole and Kitchener standing in the way at first receiver so that they can create another slow ruck?

In the same way that YBY wears 9 so he can slow up the distribution out wide?

Perhaps if those forwards in the pod were hitting rucks the ball would be quicker and cleaner for Ben so he wasn't trying to distribute scruffy ball with an encroaching defensive line...

Touché

And folk like Toomua wouldn't always be tied up in the rucks so could help create in the midfield. Which, tbh, is what I thought centres were for?

Stopsy, not just his appetite for the ball but his appetite for work generally. Pietersen also had that - I guess its top class versus being "just" pretty good.

Correct Oxen, his defence work tends to be missed but only because he is so damned quick
