    I could try and stake claim that Stino and Tino rhymes with me, Weno.

    But can't.
    Weno is like (When or).

    Dam it, so close

    It's a real shame we have 2 gun wingers in front of him and the best FB in the comp.
    Why can't we have 3 wingers! Or 2 FBs!

    Little edit i did of Selestino Ravutaumada from a game of Rah rah last year. Think his best position is centre. Try and 2 assists in this game, can pass both ways. This was a good game but not the best I've seen of him. Excuse the quality was the best I could get

    Not sure if this one has been posted here before Media has been hidden. Please Register to view.
    He's very exciting but the cynic in me wants to see him play against men week in week out where defence isn't optional. Hope the club is patient with him

    After losing Shaun, we might have just got us some X Factor! He’s got wheels, is elusive and has got that Fijian shimmie. Hopefully we see him by round 16

    The most impressive part? Looks like he's right ahead of RTS, a noted hard trainer. I'm excited for him to get a shot. Surely either himself, Tane or Fus can force Kata out of the centres this year ...

    Unfortunately the game of league requires more than just general fitness. He’s also only 18/19, so let’s not get too excited. And where does he play.. do we bench ken or fus?

    Let’s be real, he’s not going to get a look in unless there’s 2-3 injuries. He’s an exciting prospect sure but this kid is minimum 2-3years away. One thing this consistent push does show is mental fortitude which to me is more exciting than generic fitness.. the kid has the head for elite sport.

    I say if he is putting in the hard yards and the coaches think he can do the job, then drop who ever it is that's not going as hard, ponga got given a crack and he hasn't looked to bad.

    You’d put a unproven 18 year old over a kiwis winger and the reigning nrl lead try scorer? Cmon mate. That’s just simply not going to happen.

    Seems a bit premature to elevate him this soon doesn't it? No doubting he's an amazing prospect but he's fresh out of college rugby. He'd struggle to keep up in reserve grade I would say let alone the NRL.

    Who was the last kid to do it straight from 1st XV? Isaiah Papali'i???

    It's just a game mate, if he has proven himself to the coaches then hell yeah,

    Not too sure what your point is sorry. I don’t think it’ll happen, but of course this is just my opinion.

    Isaiah went to u20s first then later in the season went to reserve grade.

    Interesting Tom Ale has done the exact same thing last year as well following on Isaiah heels and probably playing even more reserve games.

    Those west coast sand dunes are a bit more than general fitness mate, they are genuine gut busters where things are hurting that you even didn't know you had. If this kid is leading RTS he has genuine ticker, and is a hungry bastard as well. All he needs now is a bit of direction. I hope he is selected in the reserves because I will be sitting down ready for that game.
