Would test matches count? He should get selected again for the Kiwis.

When suspensions count or not get confusing as rep matches used to count but there was a lot of debate about being suspended for your club but you club doesn't miss you. Also back in the day pre season matches used to count. So I can't recall what the current guidelines are.

Hopefully he carries his Dragons form on next year. Watching him tonight he isn't just doing hit ups and making his tackles in the middle, also a lot of work off the ball.

You mean the strip???
Well give or take a few plays. With that he'll fit in.

The number of tackles made and missed that was listed earlier in this thread is an impressive stat.

He was also putting pressure on the kickers tonight which was good to see.

Got a bit of a doughboy look to him.

I'll be pulling my beautiful locks out if Jazz ends up playing more minutes than him off the bench tho.

He seems like a good replacement for Matulino.

People seem to find this funny. But he seems to have similar stats to what Matulino made and in my opinion we never really replaced him with any of our current players.

Didn't realise his nicname was 'the Turtle' till I listened to Sydney Radio, Tripple M.

It's a great nicname given that Turltles are dead meat on their backs, and Leeson is celebrated for his ability to land on his front and get a quick play the ball.

Made me laugh when Stirlo and his co commentator said "He is one of those players who could be wearing a balaclava and you still know it is Leeson Ah Mau, he might have changed clubs, but his running style is so distinctive that you know it is Leeson Ah Mau".

I think he's got to be one of the best forwards going round at coming off
The bench an adding impact ..
He comes on an gets stuck into everything ..
High work rate an quick play the balls exactly what we need ..
As for his weight It didn't effect his game an its good to see a
Big guy out there in our colours ..
I'm very happy with our forwards .this season.

Good feature on him on the Kiwi League Show tonight.

Seems like a really nice and humble guy. Very deep voice on him.

Should be a good battle between him and packer.
I recall the two of them terrorizing the u20s together.

Edit: or was 20s after their time? Am I making that up?

Rusty was fast tracked but yeah Poching and Ah Mau were killer and I admired their work in that 20s side..

Poaching ,Packer ,with Ahmau off the bench an Big Ben in the second row
That could have laid a good foundation for our forward pack .
But we had a thing at the time for turning second rowers into props .

Lillyman ,Ben Matalino ,,Sam Rapira ,where all very good second rowers
Its good to see a couple of props back in the mix. At the warriors .

Was pleased-az when Leeson said he just loved being a prop rather than 2nd row. Knows what he likes, where his strengths are and wants to be the best at that role...
