Firstly I will say its bad luck for Joe, but he is young and will recover.
I was not sold on where he was at during JLT. Looked better in the ruck than up forward IMO. I am not as disappointed about this as I probably should be but I feel we might get off to a better start to the year by having a forward line that was functioning well at the end of last year, over a forward line that has Joe trying to regain that AA form of 2 years ago, and maybe not quite right.
I am probably dreading the start we had last year and do not want us to be in a similar spot 5 or so games in.
I am normally pessimistic in nature but for some reason, my gut feeling , I am glass half full. Bizarre.
