Wait till you see Roach play
If he gets his body right .He is a future kiwi great.
Him an Egan are going to be a great hooker combo
Being that they both bring different aspects to the game .
Jazz doesn't want to be hooker .He has said this himself.
If you go back through the jazz thread the article should be there .
Also he's not very good at it .I Know logic says given his size an tenacity
It makes sense but the reality is completely different.
Lawton will almost certainly be at left back row again to baby sit turnstile Hiku. The team hasn't lined up 1-13 as named once since resumption, dunno who Peyton thinks he's fooling - Seems like the mind-game team namings might have been his idea all along rather than SK's.
Jazz is not a hooker. No vision, no pass, no running game, his only value in the middle is as a tackle-bot and that's not what you want off the bench. They tried to take someone who played lock all his junior life and turn him into a hooker in reserve grade because they thought he was too small, but you can't teach instinct - compare him to Brandon Smith who's been a hooker since at least age 12.
When you look at it Lawton has been great for us. He is a competitor, he and Jazz are similar in that respect. Both give max effort and play above their size. Such players can be inspirational in a squad.
