By his admission, the last 18 months have been tough for All Blacks utility Damian McKenzie.
First his 2019 Rugby World Cup dream was shattered by injury and now he's back, but struggling to rediscover his very best.
"Just at times, I'm trying to do a bit too much, so my form could be a lot better," he says.
And you can't blame him for trying too hard, with the Chiefs winless in seven games of Super Rugby Aotearoa.
McKenzie's made a name for doing incredible things, but this season, it's just not happening.
"There haven't been as many opportunities as you'd probably like, but I guess it's how teams are defending," he says. "They're doing a really good job, so for myself, it's just finding other ways of getting into the game and making an impact somewhere else."
Meanwhile, Crusaders star Will Jordan is making an impact, leading the stats McKenzie used to dominate - tryscoring, clean breaks and metres made.
"Yes, he's in a dominant side, but also the things that he's showing are quite outstanding at the moment," says former All Blacks fullback, now TV commentator Mils Muliaina.
But Muliainia believes, if there was a test match tomorrow, McKenzie's still the man for the job.
"I know he's been out for a long time, but I just like the touches that he brings."
McKenzie will be up against another form fullback, Jordie Barrett, when the Chiefs face the Hurricanes this weekend.
"I'll be making sure I'm just going out there, enjoying it, enjoying myself and just enjoying footy, i guess," he says. "That's when you sometimes play your best."
If he can do that, not many do it better.
