Huge fan of Walla but JLT1 was nasty and JLT2 improved but still not a great outing.
However the thought that he isn't best 22 is laughable, really just out there absurd. The run down in the fourth qtr was exactly what you love and couldn't help but make me wonder whether he has been holding back a little bit in the pre-season.
I agree he is a liability overhead playing down back but if we are playing +1 then it can be covered. I'd like to see him play wing.. For mine his positioning should be similiar to a 'WA' in netball.. starting from the back edge of the centre square through to the forward goal line. Play as a link man and utilise his sublime skills to hit up the leading target.
Obviously it might take a few weeks to work out what his best role is, and that may apply to multiple guys right now, but I can see another big season ahead.
