I disagree, the kid has quite a bit going on for a big lad which can't be coached. The hopeless tackling efforts of the opponents flatter him. With good technique, the bigger lads come down easier and with a bigger bang, than the tiddlers.
Way too early to predict his future. I coached an U8s side which played Penzance/Newlyn U8s on a regular basis. Apparently it contained little whipper snapper named Nowell. He didn't particularly shine in what was a good side at that age.
