NSW-Origin-Fan said:Do you reckon if Cleary trained him hard and well at Second Row, that he'd be our attacking weapon in the forwards? I'm getting sick of all these high-dropped balls! With his size, surely Cleary has a place for him in the forwards.
I think you mean his low dropped balls? Vatuvei is one of the best at catching high balls, although he has had a few shockers. Melbourne 2006, anyone?
He is a brilliant winger, but a simple way to protect him from dropping kick offs, which are where the majority of his dropped high balls come from, is by placing him on the 20m line directly in front of the posts for kick offs, then letting him drift back out after the first hitup is taken.
