Needs to build up his tank over the next couple of years for that to happen - still only good for shorter bursts in the middle after the initial heat has gone out of the game a bit at the moment (although I'd expect some improvement on that this year) and his movement and positioning off the ball needs a bit of work too.
I have viewed his 14 minute 2018 highlights video at least 5 times, probably more, and experienced semi-orgasmic pleasure at his looping handballs to running players, his slickly flicked handballs under pressure that open up a running offensive, or a kick into a forward expertly tailored to the strengths of that player. I was devastated at the thought he might miss the grand final through injury. I cannot get enough of Sier.
But of course you are right about tanks and heat and that sort of thing, though I think he is a better reader and positioner than you allow for here. 2019 will be the Year of the Bear.
