Blair now on song!

Post by TigerLiam » Mon 06 Aug, 2012 10:18 pm

I thought Blair did a lot right tonight. Over the last 6 weeks I really think he is starting to step up.

Good on the young bloke. The K bolt had a good game. The first halves defense was very bad. Just goes to show what we can do if we defend & hold onto the pill (I.e 2nd half)

Just remember its only Parra. We need to keep winning to make the eight but build the confidence as well.

Good job boys!

Still went missing for large parts of the game and came up with a very weak miss on Roberts. Improved but was still our worst starting player imo.

Who wasn't better than him aside from benchies and Ellis who went off injured?

I thought he went well. I still wish someone fast would tail him for an offload.

Maybe blair is still trying to come to terms with a football team that is not as committed to eachother in defence . At storm he could trust his inside and outside man now he is running all over the place having to make diving tackles and the storm had a defence policy IF the other team has the ball tackle him and stay in a structured line plus slow the play th ball down .

Good game but he was a culprit early in one of the soft tries.

I'm with you galea#11, I would like to know how many metres Blair runs each game - not in attack, but defence. The selective negative knit picking at isolated incidents in his game is uncalled for. Blair always gives chase and is there to support the backs after long breaks through our defensive line. I see a fellow having a real dig every week, ask BMM. Go Weststigers!

Couldn't you think of anybody who started that was worse than him? Me either.

Round 22 and it's now he's starting to stand up? not good enough. We'll see how he goes in the next few games before we should start praising him.

Compared to Galloway, Woods, Bell and Heighno he had an ordinary game. He goes missing for large portions of the game.

I still think you can get say 40 minutes tops out of him and it won't all be at the level of most of our other forwards.

He has been a terrible buy.

He was better. Still went missing in parts though.

It's funny, everyone blows up about some of his missed tackles, but did anyone notice his effort to get Morgan just prior to the second try? He came from the other side of the field to pull him down just before the line. If Farah had made an improved attempt to catch that kick from Sandow, it would have been a try saver to match Koroibete's effort on Sandow.

I don't think Blair had a great game, but...
