Warner has made some real impacts in games. Bursting through, big goals on the run, some big tackles, assists.If someone told me Warner had played 15 matches for Sydney and Stephens had 14 I would not believe it.
Warner seems like a lock in the team in the midfield and had played way more games Stephens.
Stephens seems like he needs a big offseason to save himself.
Different perceptions I suppose.
Stephens not so much. I can remember key moments from just about every player except him. He doesn't seem to have the capability to impose himself on moments in the game. Might be confidence or it might be that adrenalin surge. Or maybe he can't quite get himself into the right place at the right time. I can't quite see where he fits in this team at the moment.
