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.
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.
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 .
