I didn't think he did anything wrong in his stint, looked a bit more natural than Clifford as Morgo's sidekick IMO and did a great job in defence, he got a lot of 1 on 1 traffic. Everyone was dropping the ball in that first half too so we couldn't really build much attacking momentum to see what the halves could do. Jake had a couple of errors and a couple of shaky moments in defense, he'll get better the more he plays though.Well that was as scrappy game as you’ll ever see. TMM surely can’t start round 1 at 6. Javid looked good and may come into calculation. Was happy with our goal line defence. Kahu being out of position for the one try we did concede was annoying, hopefully he can learn from that and put it behind him. Think if Cliffo gets a start he should assume the goal kicking duties too. Overall happy to get the win and match it with a quality side.
I thought Cliffo look more comfortable tbh but it might have been more so the team was more comfortable overall in the 2nd half and he had Dunny bill out there giving clean and crisp service for a fair part of it too.....I didn't think he did anything wrong in his stint, looked a bit more natural than Clifford as Morgo's sidekick IMO and did a great job in defence.

I thought we looked a lot better and smoother in attack with cliff partnering Morgo. It sounds like you want TMM in our side cause he’s great at doing nothing and being a passenger while Morgo runs the show. We can’t just rely on Morgan, and need a playmaker out there that can step up when Morgan is quiet (which he tends to be throughout some games), especially given we have a brand new fullback who’s been at the club for a couple of weeks that’ll take some time before he’s comfortable in slotting into our attack.I didn't think he did anything wrong in his stint, looked a bit more natural than Clifford as Morgo's sidekick IMO and did a great job in defence, he got a lot of 1 on 1 traffic.

For mine TMM has looked more comfortable at 6 as the support player in both trials. Clifford did his best work as the dominant 7 last week. He took a few weeks to figure out how to pick his moments playing beside JT, I expect he'll have the same growing pains with Morgo.
I think either way Green goes, both players will offer good support to Morgo. They are different styles of players and have unique strengths.
If we needed a dominant halfback, i'd go with Clifford every day of the week but Morgo is going to be doing the bulk of what Clifford usually does so he has to figure out how he can support him best.
I reckon if Green goes with TMM to star the year, Kahu could be the one under pressure to perform, with TMM slotting in at 1 and Jake at 6 if both of those guys are putting their hand up. Kahu was mostly solid tonight but was out of position a couple of times and didn't show much attacking spark, though with limited chances. TMM was really good with his positioning last year and had some of his best attacking performances back there.
