    And his old man says he's a bit hard to handle. Slightly concerning.

    I have heard from a couple of people on here that he may be better than his brother.

    No, no, no...shhhhh guys. He's the best product coming through for decades, and someone would need to pay him $300k per season JUST to get his signature.

    Chooks?

    If he joined the Roosters, wouldn't he have to convert to Judaism?
