I don't think either Ropati or Vatuvei were hot and cold. Vatuvei had one absolutely shocking performance, but he was consistently strong in his other appearances. Ropati was consistently one of our better players, particularly during our mid-season form slump and also in the last rounds of the regular season.
Tate will definitely carve up, assuming he gets the ball. Hopefully our halves can get it out to him regularly enough. McKinnon and Price are givens.
Sorry I probably used the wrong words, when I said hot and cold I meant those two players will be hot (standouts) and cold (did nothing wrong, gave 100% but someone else stood out more)
07 example, steve price, allways a stand out, Hot. Luck, cold lol never a stand out but I rated him 2nd rower of the NRL most weeks
