Possibly, I have not seen a lot of him.

A good 7s player doth not always a XVs player make.

And ultimately he's gone to Ealing.... I am not certain that its really a lost opportunity on the strength of Joe being a find....

Like Big Joe, good carrying and off loading game, I just think that there is a lot of raw talent in North America that maybe isn't being looked at seriously. Yes they maybe rough round the edges, like Big Joe, but they have the basics and work ethic / desire to want to succeed.
I know that the USA and Canada are developing fast at 7's and I think that the full game will follow suit in time.

Yep, 2.

The difference between Big J & him is age.
Think he is in early 30's & been around a few years. Has developed but not to the standard of Premiership, thus why he went to Ealing.
Tfully agree there is a huge talent pool in USA & from what I am told, potentially Canada who are apparently turning things around.
The USA are really focusing on the 7 Game especially for next Olympics. Let's be honest Big Joe is never going to a 7 Sevens player.

Why not?

He's 29.

He's only got 15 caps for a second tier nation.

He signed for Ealing.
