    In reserve grade last year King was starting prop in all the games he played, averaged 55 minutes a game and averaged 110 metres.
    In firstgrade he was bench prop in every game, averaged about 30 minutes, and averaged 42 metres per game.
    In both grades he made about 25 tackles a game at about 90% tackle efficiency.

    In short, he had completely different roles. His role in firstgrade was to play short minutes and do a lot of tackles per minute on the field - but not many hitups.
    He played the role they told him to play.
    In reserve grade he was the main starting prop who played long minutes and ran big metres.

    I'm not saying King can be starting prop, play 55 minutes and run 110 metres in firstgrade, but since we are asking him to do short minutes and tackle a lot, it's a bit harsh to mark him only on metres.

    Well there has to be some excuse behind it. In 2017, there was a specific press conference in the middle of the year where King said he was working on upping his amount of runs to get more involvement. The next few weeks he started putting out solid numbers & making a good amount of runs. So either they've since scrapped that idea or King just has a natural habit of not being a worker with the ball in hand & has slipped away again.

    I remember years ago that Steve Simpson was told in an origin game to do no hitups and concentrate on defence, and I was on a forum and all the fans were talking about how **** Steve Simpson was playing. After the game the Qld coach said they lost because Steve Simpson belted the hell out of them.
    Not saying King will ever be Steve Simpson, but there are two sides to the game, and King is getting told to concentrate on the one that fans don't rate.

    I’d certainly not be opposed to have Gavet starting with Dan coming on. That’s bloody intimidating.

    Gavet could look at a decent sized super league contract at three years with one year to run on his knights deal and the club would likely not stay in his way if it happened.
    Good news if true for cap space.

    The Mole is going to claim he’s a genius after connecting the dots on another story haha

    Think I read FoxSports twitter they are looking around at ESL, hopefully three years. Good for him if it's true. Could be like Guerra and out a year early if it happens.
