    A team that wins the majority of their games would have other big names taking up the points & Ponga would probably be on the wing with far less influence on the result. Playing fullback here & at the centre of our entire game plan he has massive influence every time we win & like R_A said, even when we lose games, he's bound to jag a point here & there as well.

    88, I for one am not advocating dropping anyone , I read these stats before posting , what I am highlighting is how much he can improve if
    1. He Rucks with intent and determination
    2. Closes the gaps on the inside by increase off the ball effort
    3. Tackles with purpose

    There is no reason he can’t achieve Taumolo like figures with a little lift in attitude

    All it comes down too is attitude really! You've nailed it. Its an effort game. If you make the effort you'll get rewarded. Both on and off the ball.

    Hope the safitis fire up and aren't as soft and lazy as previous weeks otherwise we will get steam rolled.
