Brown has resisted the temptation to move the 18-year-old sensation into the starting side ahead of the Magic Round match in Brisbane despite a dire performance from his team with the whiz kid on the bench last week.
Sunday’s round 10 encounter will see the Eels’ Isaiah Papali’i – one of the form players across the NRL this season – go up against his former club for the first time.
Compounding the disappointing loss to Manly at the weekend is Tuesday’s news that centre Peta Hiku is out for the season with a shoulder injury after early reports suggested he would be back in the next couple of weeks.
