His best performance ever today?
Of the season so far by leagues

It might seem a bit harsh (as he did score all our tries today) - but I didn't think he played well. His first try was brilliant. Showed he's a natural finisher with the hickie-esque spin nice determination and awareness to get the ball down and his defense was good today, maybe thanks to Henshaw inside him. But there were a couple of times I thought he lacked the distribution (or maybe it was awareness) to get the ball outside him when there were better options. Added to that, 5 handling errors which is just not good enough.
For my mind he's shown his best performances on the wing, where his finishing ability really shines.

when I watched it again after I got in from the game yeah the handling was an issue

our reserve back corps is in an annoying middle ground between dependable and problematic

Much improved in D.

Without meaning to be too harsh Reid but ROL looked much better when he was trusting his inside man to make the hit.

There were 3 instances where he really should have caught the ball because we were dangerous and there were options.

Hats off to a phenomenal catch from a Jack McGrath hospital pass because if that didn't go to hand Munster had 3 men over and a breakout try was on. He'd make a good lineout option based solely off that take
He's gotten awfully fond of that brick
