BLAIR

Post by Frank the tank » Sun 17 Mar, 2013 6:19 pm

Big Adam's Stats today:

9 hit ups for 67m

12 tackles with 2 missed tackles.

Seriously?

Is he injured, or just taking he piss? I can't even remember seeing him on the field today.

Surely we can't carry this guy for much longer.
I'm not a complete idiot.............there are some pieces missing!

Agreed...my opinion of this player should be known on this site. As said on another thread,,,the laziest most overpaid player I have ever seen.. he has to go.

I can't handle watching anymore. What a waste of money. I had hoped he would come good but I've seen enough to know he's a total dud

Both Blair & Anasta have very low work rates for their respective positions,& Fulton pretty much carries them both.
Potter will realise this sooner rather than later & has given them opprtunities to show their stuff,but you can expect to see Pettybourne and/or BMM in starting line up if were going to go close to competing in the forwards

I thought Blair was good today played less minutes but was good when he was on . I though Anasta was disappointing and Fulton was solid but he gets 80 mins so his stats will always be better. I say Anasta to bench, pettybourne to start and Bmm to continue playing more minutes, Fulton to get a break

I agree, I thought he was effective when on. Not outstanding but did a good job.

Pettybourne in 20mins did more than the rest did in the entire game (cept for BMM)

Blair didn't see a lot of game time today, so his stats are a little misleading in regards to workrate. He came up with a good try saving play, when Penrith were starting to get back into it, but otherwise was forgettable. If I had to guess he probably spent half the game on the bench.

Not good enough to a good job. . He wasn't signed for good money he was signed for exceptional money so I expect to play exceptional and more consistent. I don't think he has any more improvement in him.
His signing is up there with Nick Graham

I thought he was good again today. Good last week as well. Good to see him spend some time on the bench. He is not an 80min player.

X Whoever said the same. He weren't great but he weren't bad.

We bought the wrong Storm forward. Sika Manu is a much better player at half the price.

My thoughts exactly! Never been a real fan of Manu but today he was dominant.

Blair might be trying too hard...

Guys for me this is very simple. I'm not even that angry at Blair, I think he is trying and plays close to his ability. Im sure he will improve a little bit from last year and play a few strong games.
Problem is he is just an average backrower on 500K, that is a mega roster mistake. He lacks talent for me. Melbourne Storm has 3 superstars and a wonderful track record at getting average players to play a role get every single ounce of talent out of them.

All is settling into the game style is just garbage for me. These guys have 5 month pre seasons!! Rugby League is a pretty simple game. I reckon Blair is training really hard and providing good leadership off the field and his attitude is probably spot on. However like Anasta he just doesn't really cut it as a modern day top rate back rower.

Now exposed in a side without the winning culture of the Storm., Signing this guy for 500K when he doesn't play a key position was always going to be a disaster.. Thanks SHEENS.

I like Blair. It's a cliche but he really does do little things that nobody notices. That play to save the try was very clever.

I agree. People look back on the game and count metres or try assists as the only measurements of a good display.

Blair did coast last year, but today he was energetic and applied himself. His play-the-balls were quick, his cover was good and he took a few solid hitups.
