BMM

Couple of errors today but thought he was generally superb.

When have we had a player who hits the line as hard as he does?

It was good to see many players really hitting the line at speed.
I was very frustrated last year because most would pull up just before being tackled :crazy

The only thing I'm not sure about is do you play him up the middle or out wide. He hits it up hard.

What we should do is have Pettybourne take a hit up and then BMM to take one right after, right down the middle with teddy in close support, then bang quick movement to Koro on the fringe, or Farah goes again down the middle.
Should do it around half way or 10m over it, get a roll on into the 10m.

THats what I thought watching todays game. Have you most dynamic forwrd taking the 2nd or 3rd hitup. Try to get a roll on and the defensive line a little bit more unorganised. Great minds think alike. He is starting to play better, just fix up his mistakes. He should be in the run on side or explosive of the bench. I think its fitness thats deciding this.

I love this guy!!

He belts the line with so much ferocity and would be one of the hardest players in the game to tackle.

Probably the best impact forward of the bench going around at the moment.

Ran nice and hard - and seems to be one of the few who understands how to run off Benji, but started to react slowly in defence a few times, needs to maintain his concentration/commitment in this area and he'll go really well.

I just wish BMM could show the same intensity in his defence

Ran the ball strongly, looked dangerous.

However, a couple errors in each game, and 2 terrible penalties at crucial times last week have detracted from his game.

Last week he really had me annoyed, this week the good outweighed the bad.

He has loads of ability, hopefully he can cut out the errors and really contribute.

Happy and Goose, with some confidence shown and proper coaching we will hopefully see a more consistent footballer - it is clear he has the talent just a matter of whether Potter can get the full commitment from him.

He should be starting ahead of Braith. Hits the ball up hard and looks to be working harder in defence this year, and as Hybrid said, he's got the speed and power to break the line and is a strike weapon close to the line out wide.

BMM - 49 Minutes, 7 runs , 61 meters , 12 tackles, 2 errors

Blair - 54 Minutes, 9 Runs, 66 meters , 20 tackles, no errors

So Blairs stats are equal if not better but we all and me included felt BMM had a great game and Blair was ok

But to be fair, BMM is not on half what blair gets.

I thought BMM was great but I'm not sure where you play him - is he a prop or a backrower ?

As for the stats comparison between Blair and BMM I think that Blair must have had a couple of easier hit-ups. BMM took it straight to the panthers and went hard. He had a lot more impact than Blair did.

BMM isn't a prop. Not sure why people are saying he should move there to cover for Galloway, he is far from what we need up front. His skills just don't fit.

No reason he couldn't do it in the future but Potter and Co. would need to start training him now IMO.

He looked dangerous against Penrith. He ran hard and showed his strength. He actually runs very good lines and has a great offload which is good to see. Our fullback can take advantage of this. He seems to be fairly versatile in the sense that he can play in close as a tight forward eg prop or create havoc on the edges. I think this will be handy especially since Galloway is practically out for the season. He should be starting in the backrow against Parra as he adds abit of starch and impact to our forward pack. I think he just needs to work on reducing the errors in his game and elect to offload at the right times.
