Re: 2022 Rd 16 V Dragons: Teams and Previews *Teams p1*

Yeah i think CNK, if he was moved there fulltime would be a really good centre... but this year has added some complexity to that. Kris is playing really good footy there and appears to have really improved his defence since the back end of last year, and Timoko whilst not being a very gifted passer...

Re: 2022 Rd 16 V Dragons: Teams and Previews *Teams p1*

Which player do you believe he is? Entirely each posters perogative. Me? I say 4 games and even the 6 he has started is not enough to say. He needs more time. We as a club need more time to properly assess that. CNK should not play another minute of fullback this season unless injury/suspension/sin...

Re: 2022 Rd 16 V Dragons: Teams and Previews *Teams p1*

NRL.com also credit him with 5 errors against the knights and 4 against the broncos... i'd have to watch the game but boy that strikes me as off! haha. But my skepticism and long standing preference of Fox Sports stats over NRL aside, we have two very high error count games which account for, and us...

Re: 2022 Rd 16 V Dragons: Teams and Previews *Teams p1*

what happens if you limit that to just games he started? No idea. NRL stats made available the public arent mature enough to isolate that quickly. You'd need to go to the match stats where he didnt start, count up the non starts and the errors and remove them from the totals and redo it. Id imagine...

Re: 2022 Rd 16 V Dragons: Teams and Previews *Teams p1*

Savage needs to improve his handling, there is no doubt about that. His loose carries in heavy contact is something that needs correcting. But we're very much blowing this out of proportion too. He touches the footy a lot, his nature is going to lead to more high variance play, which means more erro...

Re: 2022 Rd 16 V Dragons: Teams and Previews *Teams p1*

I’d be interested in the Stats, but I don’t reckon Rapana would be at Savages level. Someone told me Xavier had set a new record, but I don’t know whether that’s true or not. Steve Marvin may have had more in one game than Savage this season. Who ever told you that wouldn’t know his **** from his e...

ol EDIT fingers Rapana might have a thing or two to say about that
Horsbrah this year has improved his handling errors significantly

The league is littered with players who had a loose carry in their first season or two who corrected it with time and maturity

Let's table the succession plan discussion until 2027 and re-consider.

Slater really doesn’t like Papalli does he? I dont think that is right I think he misuses him. He wants him to be a short term high impact player Big runs, huge hits. Set a tone and let others take it over. He is asking him to lead the defensive line, give it his all and check out and let the rest ...

Re: 2022 State of Origin II: Blues V Maroons

If Mitchell is back, and fit thats fine... Burton or Wighton make sense as a #14 Its fine. That’s right. Crichton will be the one that misses out IMO. He came off the bench and didnt impact the game, replacing a bad selection He started today and was frankly bad. Burton was a stud out there, Wighto...
