Harry is undoubtedly a real class act. I saw him playing for CRFC up at Sardis road on Boxing day and he was frankly taking the mick with his footwork, they could barely lay a finger on him!
Having said that, like any youngster he needs to be slowly and sensibly introduced at this level.
Against the Scarlets, he showed how lethal he can be with ball in hand, but also a bit of naievity with the tackle in the air that led to the Scarlets scoring a try from nowhere. I'm not slating the boy for that, but using it as an example of why he must be introduced to this level with caution, and not just thrown in. Both for his sakes, and the team's.
Also, while we're on the topic, I'd like to see Czekaj given a chance at centre next season. He did ok at full back, and is a solid winger, but given out lack of depth in the centre I think he has all the attributes to do very we there; he's big, string, fast, pretty good defensively and is generally hard to bring down. Anyone care to add their opinions on this idea?
