For mine, I'd prefer we didn't rush Leiataua into first grade. He has a bit to work on with his defence (e.g., missing one-on-ones), so he will be much better for the full year to develop consistency in NSW Cup. Unfortunately Berry and Vailea didn't have that opportunity, so are developing on the fly (some pros, some cons). Volkman is the same, he is already looking better for his time in NSW Cup.
Leiataua, Berry and Vailea are fighting for the two centre spots in 2024 - a good dynamic to have in the squad!
