He can break tackles but then normally drops the ball on the 20 Mtr line. No matter how cack he has been for the last Who knows how many games the cheering when he catches a high bomb or evades a tackle still holding the ball is out of order. There is something there and perhaps a move will do him good. I prepare to be shot down now when he drops the ball against Huddersfield.
Looking at the Castleford fans forum There is a post from someone Who's sister Dated him for a while, Apparently he has a known medical problem with his peripheral vision. First time I've heard that.
If that is true, then he will never make a SL standard winger. However, if his vision is okay, then ball retention can be coached as can, perhaps to a lesser degree, catching a high kick. Maybe DP thinks he can cure DO's problems. To be honest, I doubt it, but I hope he can for the lad's sake.
Wouldn’t wish peripheral vision problems on anyone. If he has that problem then it’s sad. I’m not sure how many of the mistakes shown on his ‘greatest hits’ could be attributed to that,though. Reading his Twitter account and interviews,he doesn’t seem short of confidence . I hope he can resurrect his career at Cas,because that’s what we’re looking at.
