Starting to look like a mere formality isn't it?

Just posted elsewhere that the rumour is he is being considered. He was the NZ hooker a couple years ago and carved up in the 9s. I hope we get him, playing behind a dominant pack and a quality side I think he would be the signing of the year and would massively offset the loss of Fainu. Not sure why people are saying he's no good????Starting to look like a mere formality isn't it?
Agreed. If we play Cust at hooker then we really only have 1 spare hooker/half in our top 30 in Croker. 2 injuries in those positions would see us using a rookie in Metcalfe, an untried player in ZDC or a makeshift in siro. There is no way possible we can go into a season so short in important positions. I actually thought we were short in playmakers even when Fainu was free... Now Levi or another specialist hooker is a MUSTWe need at least one actual hooker in our squad, meaning someone with some experience playing the position at NRL level. We currently have none. Levi fits the bill, could do a job for us while others learn how.
And just why did they play Origin? Klemmer alone is extremely one dimensional in his play. Hit up, use knees. No passing, very little offloading (less than 1 per game in 2019). If he's running at the guy 2 players inside of you then you don't have to worry about doing any tackling on that play because he's rarely going to create any second phase play.He played behind Dave klemmer and safiti origin props. He decision making is very poor.
