This thread is for the general discussion of the Item Marata Niukore. Please add to the discussion here.
 
He's absolutely targeted, some his fault but he's absolutely no where near the leagues of JWH or Radley. They intentionally commit foul play as part of their standard game, he's been responsible for a couple of unlucky but common head high yellows. NAS not being on there sums up a lot. Certain clubs get preferential treatment both on and off the field.

I don't fault him for that, though he does need to be aware of it because he's going to keep getting that treatment next year.

What we do need to see is a lot more out of him game impact wise. We paid overs to bring him in and while he's a strong player and definitely part of our first picked side, he's rarely been a top 5 player in a game for us this year. We really need him to stand up and start breaking some games open, don't expect him to be AFB level but every third game he needs to be standing out big time.

As it is I'd happily swap him for a prop of similar value and just slot in Curran.
