i disagree with both of these statements
the fact we were so underpowered in the forwards with him playing essentially as a prop is an absolute liability to our overall go-forward
and it looks like he is in the 17 whether in form or not
Nah he won't be in the 17 if he's out of form. I feel SK and team deserves a bit more credit than that. Let's see what happens once Todd Payten gets here. If Jazz keeps up his form and keeps his spot then he must be doing something right.
Our defence needs to improve overall. No team wins the premiership if they get 50 put on them during the regular season.
Our forward pack isn't the top 4 in the comp and won't be next year either.
Lack of go forward isn't the only blame for poor defense. There's many other factors such as poor footy IQ.
Jazz wasn't playing like prop more as a second rower/loose forward. they're allowed to be smaller and agile.
