I think he will be, but the defense isnt there yet. But Im confident he will be.
If we could some how nab Jesse Arthars who has said he would like to play with us, being a kiwi etc, then we have at least one 1st grade centre. By that stage Vailea will have hopefully had one on one coaching.
Who knows what they will do in the mean time. They may even just play the young guys and risk repeating this years defense. But I think Pompey and Charnze Nicoll-Klokstad would fill the gap temporarily.
