Strengths: Has grown enormously in stature since he shifted to the Blues and has been able to win regular game time.

He seems calm and composed and tactically astute. Is a solid game manager and mostly accurate tactical kicker.

Weaknesses: Lacks an element of dynamism and X-factor. Is not a deadly runner or likely to pull off an impossible play. Is more steady as she goes which makes him a little easier for defences to shut down.

Goal-Kicking: Reliable.

Is he a future All Black? Maybe. He could get to the edge of the squad this year if he can produce a consistent campaign with a tough of the unpredicta­ble thrown in.
