Yeah I dunno, part of me was pretty surprised about the whole ‘Chanel Harris-Tavita to test the market’ thing. Imo has not shown enough to even consider testing the market. If you think you’re that good, back your self to beat Nikorima and Ash, who are both ‘failed’ halves, don’t just take the first opportunity to jump ship.
Most supporters either hope he comes good, or believe he can. I’ve been a critic but would love him to come on and dominate in the first 9 or 10 games next year.
My guess? It feels that someone’s told him he’s better than he is and feels he should be a walk up starter. If he gets an offer to be a starting half somewhere he’ll sign and push for an early release. Hope I’m wrong and does the hard yards a la Bunty
