Whitehead misses too many tackles, once this is sorted then he should come in to contention. But only in the second row.
Your the Bulls fan so I bow to that but, I did not see him miss many tackles on Thursday and would contend that; as good as he is at running with the ball; Watkins misses far more tackles than I have yet to see Whitehead do?
I do not envisage him getting a second row spot. There are too many contenders with almost certainly better credentials presently.
But the centre position must be up for grabs as not one of the favoured is breaking any pots, consequently I believe that a player who can break through in the summer as having the qualities to make a fist of it in that position, does have the chance to do so and going off what I have seen myself I would put Whitehead in with a definite chance. Depending on how his and Bradford's form holds up.
