Absolutely sums up Jake

In the last game against Scotland the English commentator remarked about Jake.

‘He’s a special player, he carries the ball like a front rower, he handles the ball like a half back and runs like an outside back’

It basically sums up how Jake adds value to a team.

‘Running like an outside back’ would have Turbo in stitches of laughter, however, I’d add ‘hits like a road train with a bull bar’

It's easy to do when you're playing sheep
 
"I come back to you now at the turn of the tide"
If every player who ever wore a Manly jersey played with as much passion and commitment as Jake, our matches would be sold out every weekend, every year.

One can only wish for the same passion, commitment, and unity from the club itself.

Was an easy mistake to make but he was talking about Yeo...
I know this because I thought the same when I was watching the game on Kayo and, despite being a big Jake fan, my immediate thought was "WTF did he just say?"
So I rewound the play and worked out he had gone straight from calling a Jake hit up into praising Isaiah...

How I wish Jake did have those attributes.
If he was mentioned as a gutsy, whole hearted player with great defensive technique who can fill in as a set of hands - 1 off the ruck, I get it.
Yep would be a handy addition to Manly, but I get the feeling he will be a Panther the rest of his career.
