Gopperth would be considered the "safe" option I think - so this would probably be a trial by fire for Lavea.

I once had man love for Jimmy G...even got his autograph on a poster Very Happy...I would of picked him over Lavea but they are another one of the NZ teams who lack a strong number 10.

Lavea was rubbish played five-eighth for melbourne as a back-up to Scott Hill. as a twin brother Tai Lavea also wasn't the best. Tasesa the more talented out of the two.

Tasesa reminded me of Joe Williams, had so much potential and played to that potential at times, but was just a little in-consistent.

Yes he has the potential to be gun.

yeah both of these guys are loose cannons but with different styles of inconsistency. gopperths similar to holwell but a lot less accurate and lacks calm under fire. tasesa is like carlos only with a smaller bag of tricks and less physicality. blues are doomed, either player can choke their own backline out of the game.

if i absolutely had to put money on one of them i'd bet on jimmy, he's shown a lot of maturity since moving to NHarbour.

cant wait to see blackie play. i reckon it'll take him the first half of the s14 to get to match fitness then he'll be back to his best and knockin on that ABs door.
one of the best players never to have worn the black jersey
