Blair

Post by dermo » Sat 23 Mar, 2013 2:13 pm

13. Blair - 119 metres in attack, 1 offload, 1 tackle break, 19 tackles, 3 missed tackles

easily his best game in tigers colours, really stood up and got through alot of work in the absence of Keith. Playing so much better this year now we've got some more structure

Definitely been an improvement each game so far this year. Although the pessimist in me says that its been against low quality sides, I hope he continues the upward trend.

It was against really bad parra team. He will need to do a whole lot more against Manly next week.

With Blair I feel like we paid for a Mercedes and got a Toyota. Nothing wrong with toyotas as long as your not paying 3 times more than they are worth.

As long as he keeps imporving each week. Manly and Storm will be a good test to see where we are.

He keeps spinning in tackles looking to offload.

If we had someone who would be sniffing around for those I think we'd be singing Adam's praises a lot more..

Someone like the backin gup play of Tedessco???? I really want ot see Tedessco get a crack. He seems like another good attacking weapon, one we muchly need. I think our attack is still a little weak. However, was impressed by Moltzen, he played well. What to do?? If Korro isn't back next week, put Tedescco on the wing or Fullback. See how that goes.

it was Blair's best game. He was our best in the first half!

Best game I have seen Blair play for the Wests Tigers. I like the way he tries to hold the tackled player down to slow the play the ball, he also runs to put pressure on the opposing kicker in general play, he is the type of player who likes to niggle the opposition which as long as he isn't giving away penalties isn't a bad thing.

In my opinion Blair and Woods have been our best forwards this season

Woods was very, very strong again last night, I know everyone knows this but for a bloke his age and experience in 1st grade, it is great to watch his game week after week.

I don't know about others ,but Woods reminds me of Lazarus ,when you think he finished he gets an extra 2-3 metres

I'd take a 7 second 2j over a 12 second Mercedes every day of the week.

getting pretty tired of you and 1974 blowing the same horn over and over again tbh.
you were right when you said blair wouldnt be as good a buy as everyone though, but he's improving..he's going in the right direction. lay off him for a while, will ya?

agree with most here.. easily his best game in our jumper. that missed tackle on allgood costed us a try though. feels much more comfortable in the middle. some may not like his hit and spin but i think he does it pretty well tbh.. gains an extra 5 metres after initial contact
was hoping to see much better seasons from keith and blair. blair has to stand up big time now with his experience. needs to lead the forwards by example. take the dirty hit ups and do what comes naturally to him.. be a grub, we need one.

Well I would want you to get your panties in a twist over something as trivial as this. So I promise I'll lay off him .................for a while.

Why don't you PM me with your thoughts and opinions and then that way I can post what you're comfortable with and then you won't get tired of me having an opinion of my own.

it is not a coincidence that this has all happened since he cut his hair.

Lock is his spot whereas last season, he was playing front row.

Sheens couldn't bring himself to drop Heighington from lock and replace him with Blair. I guess if he dropped Heighington, the players would have had a hissy fit and Heighington would have removed Sheens from the dinner invites.
