Mybe vs holmes

Post by larrycorowa » Tue 28 Aug, 2018 12:03 pm

I think mybe can be just as effective as holmes next year. He is looking more dangerous each game and with a full pre season and a better understanding of where he fits into our attack I think you will see him flourish

Watched the extended highlights of Sharks Knights game. Holmes was on fire. The guy is lightning fast. I am not sure that Mbye is in his class.

Mbye is a good player no doubt but Holmes can regularly break a game open.

Mbye is solid without being spectacular.

This is funny.

A month or 2 ago most people were saying Holmes is a great winger but an average FB, now he's the benchmark. Amazing how players improve with an extended run in one position.

FWIW, I think Mbye can be at least as valuable as Holmes to our side. Given it's his first year at FB, he has loads of improvement left in him.

Holmes played his entire juniour career at fullback, he only played wing in first grade. Even then it took him a year and a half before he looked good at fullback in first grade

Mbye played all his juniours at center and in the halves, even a bit at hooker, he only started playing fullback in firts grade this year

Give him time

We have Mybe, don't care how good or bad other fullbacks may or may not be!! Just like I don't care how Teddy plays at the Rorters my only concern is how well the Tigers players perform. Mybe is what we have for the next 4 years and I can only see him improving.

last pre-season we had was spectacular, i'd say a lot of our current squad would have hit PBs- let's see how Mbye is after that. Not fair to judge him too much based on this year.

The thing I'd like to understand is why Holmes took so long to cement his FB spot? Honestly he was rather average and Cronulla were not sure what to do with him, then he had a breakout Origin, found this new confidence and has taken his FB play to another level.

But it's also contract time and the argument about Jesse Sue also holds - is he going good because he wants people to pay him more money?

I don't think there's any guarantee Holmes will hold his form, and there's nothing to say that Mbye can't hit top form if he is left at FB for longer as well, after being tried out in so many positions.

No argument that Holmes is ahead right now, but personally it's been rather recent form and no sure thing to continue.

There's no comparison to make; we don't have a player named Mybe.
