Comments on him from former teammate and current assistant coach of the Steval Pumas, MJ Mentz:
“JW’s best qualities on the pitch is that he brings a certain calmness to the players. He has great communication skills on both attack and defense. Due to his sevens skills, he’s work rate is very high and although his is small, is is our Jonah Lomu in the team with his power drives.”
