Matt Ikavalu? I can’t work out if he is any good or if the roosters backline makes him look better than he is.
He seems very good one on one from 10m out. But may fade in and out. Happy to sign him too though.

Flip side to that is if he isn't that good we are stuck with him for 4 years. I'm not a fan of contracts any longer than 3 years unless you are a proven first grader of rep quality or you are an out and out gun junior. Let's hope he works out
It's an NRL contract. It's not 'real'.

Don't underestimate the value of Jorge with the young playing group given what happened this week. It is going to take a strong leadership group to get us through this successfully.
Get him involved in some capacity as a cultural leader. He seems to be training with some of the young islander lads.

I think he is taller than 186cm - in photos that I have seen when he was 16, he was the same height as Latrell Mitchel and was taller than Boyd Cordner who is 188cm.

Yeah,I would have said 192cm....when you look at him vs the Storm and he was marking Vunivalu they are pretty much the same height wise and I think Vunivalu is 192cm.But l hope we don't want him to be as big as Suli.....
I just hope people don't expect too much,he is a centre by trade playing on the wing,he has some pace but he is not Addo-Carr.He is a talent though and has a good upside.

Very interesting signing. Saab has been on our radar for ages but this bloke must have been getting vetted by the club for just as long, but just not played out in public the way Saab's recruitment was.
Signing a 20 year-old to a 4 year deal is something that doesn't happen every day.
Wonder if he could turn out to be a Dale Shearer type?
