Player Jazz Tevaga

We shouldn't let him go at all for the following reasons:
1. He does the one percenters Mannering used to do.
2. Has great defensive reads and saves a lot of tries over the season, like Mannering did.
3. Is one of the few locals to kick on.
4. Has the heart of a champion. He leaves nothing in the tank. Forces his way over the line often when something is needed.
5. All the above is rare in one player. It balances the team well.

Biography:
After just 15 NRL appearances in his first two seasons, Jazz has become a key component in the team's mix, bringing heart, energy and desire every time he 's on the field.

Across the 2018 and 2019 campaigns he appeared in 42 of the club's 49 games, mainly injected off the bench to lift the side but also being used towards the end of the 2019 season as a starting loose forward.

His progress in 2020 was stymied following offseason surgery and further injuries which kept him out of the first eight rounds of the Covid-affected season.

When he was finally cleared to make his return against Gold Coast in round nine, Tevaga made an immediate impact coming off the bench. By the 11th round he was back as the starting loose forward.

While he's one of the smaller forwards around at just 178cm and 98kg, he's also one of the NRL's toughest forwards.

Jazz played in all four of Toa Samoa’s matches at the 2017 Rugby League World Cup.

Shouldn't he be donating 100$ for every linebreak, tacklebust , try assust , try.... etc.?
Like then he can play well and donate to his friend?
Was my initial thought too, he’s either playing this year to give away penalties, missed tackles and errors or looking to donate bugger all to his mate in a tough time. Nice gesture, just think he’s incentivised himself the wrong way around. Probably thinking with his history, how he’s said he’s going to contribute is the most lucrative option.

Yep, I noticed he's changed it to positive actions such as tackles made and tries. Perhaps he will add in a bigger amount for 40/20s? Conversions from the sideline etc.
Agree about the kata reasoning ... running the ball and not passing from 5 metres out.

On last year's averages (30+ tackles, 85+ running meters a game) and hopefully jag a few tries he'd be looking at around $400-450 a game. I don't think hell average that all year as he'd likely start from the bench a lot, but would come close to around 10k so that's pretty cool from Jazz

OK so Jazz has pledged:

$10 per tackle
$1 per metre
$500 per try

Based on his 2022 stats:

550 tackles =$5500
1477 metres = $1477
1 try =$500

Grand total of $7477

Not sure what his penalty and error count was last season but the new pledge seems a lot more generous. Good on him for doing this...

Fucker probably realizes he's getting 20-30 minutes off the bench max this year so will have to pay a quarter of that 🤪

Haha no, he's not the most gifted player ever but he busts his arse and bleeds for the Warriors, I love the little bloke!

Based on last years stats his original pledge would’ve looked like this:

Tevaga (17 games)
33 missed tackles
5 errors
9 penalties

Total $4700


For context…

Matt Lodge (16 games Wahs+Roosters)
38 missed tackles
7 errors
10 penalties

Total $5500

Addin Fonua-Blake (21 games)

19 missed tackles
10 errors
6 penalties

$3500

Curran (18 games)

42 missed tackles
8 errors
10 penalties

$6000


Curran on an edge always going to miss more tackles than strictly middles.
