Chanel Harris-Tavita has oscillated this year and last year between appalling and pretty damn good. He needs feedback and he needs coaching. I really find it hard understanding what is cieling is or even predicting what type of player he could be.Prediction - Due to fuck all game time and poor tutoring leading up to this moment Chanel Harris-Tavita doesn't play as well as a world class experienced half would and this forum blows up at how useless he is and how he should be as good as Cooper Cronk/Andrew Johns/ Johnathon Thurston but is clearly so shit from all the amazing coaching he has received from the world class coaches we have had during his time. Forum flooded with "Chanel Harris-Tavita is so shit"
Hope the kid doesn't feel the massive pressure and weight on his shoulders and try to win everyone over in one game. Hopefully the rest the season is used to actually teach him and give him confidence and he gets to operate behind a pack that actually pulls their panties up and digs in. Only then can we see if he has what it takes to be a long term half. Rather than all the experts here judging on the minimal time off the bench the kid has had to learn a pretty tough position.
Let's watch tonight to get a sense of where he is at.
