I would think Kata is maybe now behind Beale in the pecking order? Could be a tricky game the Knights, they would have confidence from last week but i really think we will win, hope Herbert has a blinder and gets MOM.

From compassionate leave to 3rd option in the pecking order?

That doesn’t sound like compassion to me. More like punishment.

Oui Stevo, what sort of message are u sending to players aye? you grant them compassionate leave then drop them into reserve grade when the come back? Harsh bro. Harsh.

I reckon the only compassion is not saying publicly he was dropped.

The boys a bit fragile in the head obviously, and needs to be let down real gentile like.
 
I get nervous for players in Herbert’s situation. He played well in his first match but lets be honest. He didn’t set the game alight. He was solid but Latrell Mitchel isn’t shaking in his boots just yet.
If he misses a couple of tackles or makes some errors fans tend to rip the new guys apart because they have built up their own expectations too high.
Let’s give this guy a chance to prove himself.

As far as I'm concerned he gets 2 full seasons to prove himself. That's how long it will take for him to fully develop into first grade.

All he has to do on the weekend is be himself really.

Two seasons to develop into FG?

Doesn’t that mean he’s not ready and shouldn’t be playing FG now?

He’s ready.

I disagree somewhat. He was enormous in defence for us. If Kata or Hiku had marked up against Chambers, it could have been a cricket score. He didn't have much of an opportunity in attack, but for him to be THAT solid defensively in his first game, in an unfamiliar combination is extremely impressive to me.

However, I agree with you that I'm a bit nervous. Hopefully he gets the chance to shine when attacking this week. I reckon he will get a lot more quality ball with Roger Tuivasa-Sheck and Green back though.

As long as Patrick doesn’t have any brain explosions, I’m confident he’ll do just fine.

He’s ready.
When I say develop into first grade, I mean turn himself into a top 10 center...

He's certainly not at that level yet.

As a centre I'd like him to be the link between playmaker and finisher. Or finisher. Or part time playmaker.

Defensively he's fine thus far.
Not inhaling from the hype pipe but pleased to see his performance level against a benchmark team and opposite centre.

Now for that magic Warriors ingredient.........

CONSISTENCY.

All he has to do basically is pass, defend as well an he's a sure thing.
