I want him to be our third hooking option so that we optimise our thirty spots, which could even be less next year according to a post I read this morning.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.
Jazz is good enough to be emergency back up hooker. Paying for Egan, Lawton, and Roache doesn't make sense unless Lawton becomes a permanent fixture in the 2nd row; which I doubt giving our impending acquisitions for next year.
Yes I have seen Roache play. He did not rock my world he played like 5 games that I recall in 2017, and showed well compared to the shit house make shift spine we played those games..
ie our halves were Hingano and Lino then Lino got injured and it was Hingano and some cu**.
Compared to that backdrop, and Luke's lack of motivation that year, Roache's dummy half runs shone out like a beacon on a dark night.
Roache is over hyped.
Or maybe is he isn't. I think we all need to see more of him. He will back around round 15.
