Lets give him some credit.

Still alot more to do but we need to get our monies worth out of him. I agree with the general concensus....leave him at prop and get him playing consistently. Prob needs to put on a little weight but I thought he did well tonite compared to many of his performances.

But much much more is required but at least now we have somewhere to work from.

Well done Adam.

the bar was so low that the only prop not to touch the ball in his own half should be getting credit. :brick: :wtf

before last week i thought he would at least do 3 from our half.in my eyes the bar fell even further.
not acceptable to me i'm afraid.

Everytime he did something good (tackle break) he either dropped the ball or pushed the pass and turned it over.

Put any front rower there and they would have done the same job, if not better.

Problem is, for 500K, we are applauding his efforts of a basic frontrower's role...that's the standards we are getting excited about at this club
EXACTLY RIGHT... applauding that performance is ridiculous, we're not here to hand out "most improved" or "encouragement' trophies... hes supposed to be a top class forward and hes being praised for not being quite as pathetic as hes been in EVERY other game he played for us... c'mon guys. he needs to go. ONE line break and he gets so excited he throws it away... thats schoolboy stuff.

I think he played an improved game last night.
It was Sheens that had him trim down and tried to turn him into a running backrower.
The problem with that was, that he bludged on the edge and would not get involved.

He is now best served for the team playing at Prop.....
He will have to beef up again, but I'm now more positive that he can make a good fist of the Prop position and get himself more involved.

Was okay, good for what we've come to expect from him. That miracle off-load he tried to pop after a good run really pissed me off.

Still think he'll be lucky if he's here next year and TBH I don't really want him.

He has to be on very thin ice still. There's just no way he is earning his pay check.

Boy you would boo Santa.

Give credit where it is due. He was off the field for a lot of the game but he really put in both in attack and defence.

Let's see how he goes over the next couple of games as he gets used to his new position.

Much better but still not what I'd expect from a forward chewing up a fair amount of our cap,the pressure valve is hardly released IMO

He needs a position to work on ..one week lock..next week back row..this week prop!! The team is short on props play him there for 6 games and let him settle and things might change..

Prop is his go from this point on. Its the only way you can Guarantee he'll get involved. Sure he made a couple mistakes last night, but you can't make mistakes if you're not putting your hand up and having a go.

Mate I love Santa, he's always been good to me. I'm a huge fan of the big guy.

I agree credit where it's due........Blair deserves very little credit for one adequate game. Seriously when Galloway comes back he should be dropped and not just to the bench.
I'm not a complete idiot.............there are some pieces missing!

Another positive from last night Blair showed that prop is his position. He will improve as he continues to play in this position and this is good news as there will be good prop rotation between him, Woods, Buchanan, Sue and Ava.

Still not the best by Blair but a big improvement. Especially in defence. I think we should keep him at prop for the next couple of games to see how he fairs.

10 hitups, 85 metres, 37 tackles.
Much better effort but still room for improvement,

1 missed tackle. That is a solid effort. We overpaid him but if used right I think he can contribute.

He was much better last night.
He was more involved and plays better tighter. I think he just gets lost when he plays as a fringe back-rower so prop and lock is where he just feels more comfortable.

i dont, he was lazy and no that his career/position is on the line he put in for once. I've seen him ensure he is several people out from the play the ball so he doesnt get given the ball. He is just an average lazy 1st grader who looked great in a winning team, as most people do. Try name a bad storm, manly or souths player? it's a lot harder than here.

Play him at prop for sure, but he's never gonna live up to 500k. His performance on friday was worth 250-300k, no more. and i dont think he can do much better.

played better last night.

I would like to know how many tackles he completed as we seemed to be around the bigger plays in Defense.

More to come I hope

Good to see the improvement. Leave him at prop and buy him a house in Kiama
