Peter Johnson (47)
I have two issues with JJH @mst, One, he is very small by rugby standards, and I see him being the new generation Robbie Coleman. Bigger centres will tend to dominate him over time. Then, I think he definitely has some defensive issues, missing quite a few one-on-one tackles. The second issue could just be a reflection of the first, of course.
I do think he has talent, but I don't think he has the physique to consistently make an impact at Super Rugby level.
To my mind, Taliauli had the more impressive season for a back.
I can't disagree with your first point.
Ditto re: Taliauli - surprised he didn't get the backs award.
