It's not really that big of a step if you think about it. What does Luai excel in? Taking the ball to the line and drawing out defenders with plays right before the line. This is one thing that has directly translated for CHT. He is exceptional at decision making at the line. Having a half who can absorb contact at the line and isn't afraid of taking it to the line opens up options outside.
Chuck Nathan Cleary next to CHT who can hide the flaws in his kicking game (as he has done for Luai who is just as average at kicking as CHT) and I guarantee CHT would be talked about in same light as Luai as an upcoming half in the game
What does Luai have that CHT doesnt in terms of skillset or physical attributes?
This chat about not having elite speed... There's probably only a handful of halves who can actually break the game open with the their speed anyway. Even less now with SJ broken down.
