I just said something similar in a different thread, but I worry about that right edge. I still think a yr on that that centre spot is no where near sorted.
Perhaps coming in mid year for BJ meant a learning curve too steep, but he was basically a waste of space. Defensively he was poor, gave away some dumb penalties (mostly shoulder charges) and made bad errors.
Waqa is a winger, and while he did an admirable job under the circumstances, and was the best choice we had at the time, he is not a centre.
Brenko... well... another yr on, and very little to no improvement. He and BJ seem very similar in playing style, maturity and application. Like others, I believe if he could get his off field stuff, training and diet sorted, he could well be the answer. BUT, like BJ, if he doesn't, he will be nothing better than an avg to poor NRL player.
With our current roster, Brenko is the one id be taking a punt on, BUT, he has to work for it over preseason; something he was probably told last yr too TBH. It does potentially make BJ an expensive Mounties player though.
