    He took a hit up! The almost intercept I thought he maybe have been put off by Papalii cutting back in so second thought was to pass it wide. He had such a good game can tell he was really pissed off at missing those goals. Nice to him having a go instead of being down be 10 with 5 to go and then trying to Shaun Johnson his way out of it.

    Good game from SJ, best thing I loved about the game was the options he had when on the ball. For Gus's second, Pulu and Hiku both ran up with him, that's what created the space. Shaun's lethal in those situations

    I find the Australians seem to rate him higher than a lot of kiwis.

    Speaking of kiwis- there's a lot of them in that team of the week.
    Or Tongans depending how u look at it.

    Seeing as Johnsons a pretty average 7, ive said for years, move him to 7 and hire a proper 7 so Johnson can do his magic, running. Imagine if we could get Cleary at 7 and Johnson at 6.

    Shaun Johnson is the best x factor half ever he has always played well with a quality six Maloney, Townsend and now Green.

    It's like getting a new star 7 - or getting the old one back. Either way, the runes are looking good. We've got something the Aussies want and haven't been able to take from us. Go, SJ, you're a grand final winner in the making this year (says the optimist in me).

    He has been injury prone the last three years it'll be interesting to see whether he can maintain his fitness.

    I would be looking to take the goal kicking off him if there is another option. Gets the easy ones but nothing from anywhre near the edges

    He is.
    I think it was against the Raiders away he nailed a sideline conversion to take the game to extra time.

    It is going to cost us games, no doubt about that.

    Goal kicking aside, when he went to the air for Fusitua it was pinpoint and the acrobat did the rest

    His kicking for goal is ok he was one of four kickers that struggled at Perth. Nothing gained swspping with Luke. I might be wrong here but isnt Kata a kicker.

    Bombing to Fusitua on the 5th everytime should seriously be considered.
    So what if it doesn’t look intelligent or Storm-esque. I bet it’ll work 3 times out of 5.
