Elliott Whitehead

Post by papabear » April 28, 2019, 8:23 pm

Had a bit of a Lui start but he’s grown on me.

Really grown on me, I don’t know about the stats but his defence and his strips are big time. Literally an absolute gun. Honestly I like him pretty much more then any other backrower maybe even more then kikau.

Lately I would have him right up there in terms of performance and best players on our side.

Keep up the work whitehead!!! You have a fan in me.

Pretty sure there aren’t many Raiders supporters that don’t rate him extremely highly. An absolute stud, and has been since he got here. As is his best mate J Bateman

To have Whitehead and J. Bateman as our 2nd rowers is a gift.

Love him, i think he's one the best in the game. I think we need to be running a lot of our red zone attack through him because although i think Bateman is probably a more talented player, in the red zone he's a little Raps/Beej in that he's a ltitle helta skelta and adlib and a lot time when you need something, he'll create it... But as a base package of plays, Whitehead is just a really good edge hole runner who is excellent and we should go to him a lot.

Consistently makes big plays in attack and defence. Underrated hole runner and great with ball in hand.

I can't believe he's not the goto for high attacking kicks near the line.

He used to score stacks of tries for Bradford and Catalan collecting the balls up high.

all the more reason for me to give him a wrap.

He has been excellent for the last month and for most of his career here.

I like to think I am very positive on positive performances and his perfomances certainly deserve a big kudos. He is one of the rare players that if he has an off day I dont think to much of it because I think so highly of him these days.

In modern sport, Whitehead is a great poster child for professionalism. It would be an insulting to call him a grinder (he’s more skilful than that), but his high work ethic is there to see every time he steps on the field. It looks like he’s a man who takes his job very seriously and takes pride in his performance. Especially in this modern age where you have entitled young athletes caring more about their Instagram follower numbers than their performance.

I was critical of a couple of his early performances but I’m now glad we’ve got him at the club.

I've been saying for years that I wouldn't swap Whitehead for any other backrower in the competition, and I firmly stand by that.

I don't think he's lost too many skins of "Pigman is a ****" in his time either, although probably still loses Matt's Matchups to guys like Adam Blair and Kevin Proctor.

At the start of this season, Whitehead and Cotric were being mentioned as being down on confidence and not playing to their standard.

I'm going to put it down to him being tired from having to translate Bateman for the media at the start of the season.

Cotric is pretty much back to his best as well.

His performance yesterday was for the ages. When Batty went off he shifted sides to mark Kikau. He put two massive hits on Yeo and Kikau and both are busted custard. Plus, that setup for wighton's try was quality.
He's a machine. Form is temporary and class is permanent. Eased into the season but he's firing now.
