“If you ask Joe, he probably wants to get closer to the finish line. But when we’re at home, playing him as a left eight or a right eight gives us a bit of ambition in the team instead of having the three number sixes and we know that he can explode from the deep and gives us a chance to get to Hagi and [Ryan] Kent on the team as well and maybe other people for different games as well.
“Honestly, I cannot speak highly of the boy. He’s a boss kid and wants to get better. We are delighted to have it. He decided to come here and develop and grow and he is moving in the right direction.
“It’s low maintenance, whatever he’s putting into it, it’s no wonder he’s getting a lot of good performances in his game now.”
