I agree , junior has Russell's frame but he has way better attitude off the field - we had at hawks for 3 years, good kid.
My thing with a Monster Prop is we don't have a Burgess looking kid coming through the Auckland scene, your right there's a few height wise but fitness issues for all of them.
I rated Sorby Sovea from Otahuhu 20's this year, he trialed I heard but when I saw his photo online at the trials - he's carrying weight again, He can bend the line. Was also trying to find out if Conor Purcell trial another Prop in Russell's frame that has a big motor. They played with Lisone this year but TBH they will be wasted if they stay down in there age group.
Sorby is a very big boy, powerful - wonder if he made the cut, pity if he is over weight as he is impressive in physique. Warriors would do well to recruit some Fijian boys.
