Just saying Jorge is a beast bringing the ball out of our end. And he can put on a bone rattling hit - neither of which Albert could do. But yes Jorge struggles massively under the high ball and with getting caught out in defence. Sadly Hopoate didn't offer anything in any part of the game. He might well become a superstar but based on this year the NRL is simply too "big" for him - just based on those few games. He was way way off the pace in all aspects.Hopoate seems taller and faster than Jorge yet we have put up with him for years
Lol. A good idea from Albert's perspective to be in a different city from his 'well-meaning' dad. Wouldn't surprise me at all to see Albert eventually prosper at NRL level but it will probably take at least another year or two. Assuming he sticks it out, it he goes away for Mormon mission it will only get harder.Issues included not putting players in first grade who are not ready.
Yeah and maybe for the best with some of the baggage that it seemed to create over nothing really from Manly ;s perspective , Also Will never made it back [ Quite sure he would not have proved an overall plus if he did and with his asking contracts since he left ] Unlikely with Jamial , and the youngest Hoppa in the Manly juniors ? Maybe another chapter to not fully discount yetI think the last chapter has been written, this book needs to close!!
