Here’s a trade I’m both nervous and excited about. Talau is
clearly talented and has a nice game with the Warriors on Friday night. The
Warriors are digging deep of late, but with a few players returning home, and
new players coming into the squad it’s a big ask.
Anyway, trading Talau facilitates the upgrade to Eels winger
Maika Sivo. Sivo is a big beneficiary of Dylan Brown’s form inside him.
Brown’s ability to play direct and engage defenders is
really isolating the opposing winger, and when Sivo gets that one-on-one it
takes a miracle to stop him with a full head of steam.
The Eels have a fairly nice run of games this year and they’ve proven they’re the real deal, so hopefully Sivo finds the line frequently.
