Farah lost us the game tonight

Post by Love the WestsTigers » Sun 10 Apr, 2016 8:05 pm

No he DIDNT.!!
For all giving him a serve for no reason please get off his back

Played 80 Mins > 96meters > 40 Tackles and no Missed tackles.
What did he do wrong ?

I am probably classed as one of Robbie's biggest fans on here.

However I will always call a spade a spade and he was incredibly average out there.

Other hookers in the comp are playing so much better.

Robbie tried his guts out, and tackles well but he is slow as a wet week.

Laurie has seriously got the blinkers on if he is going to pick him for origin.

He tries hard and makes many tackles but his service from dummy half is too slow. Why does he constantly take two or three steps before passing? It just crowds those outside him. I'd play him at lock

I am not sure whether he is getting old, or is deliberately being selfish, but I not that:
- His service out of dummy half is painfully slow & the passes are flat
- his attempts to milk penalties are just annoying
- when we are on the attack, he keeps popping up at 1st and second receiver
- his annoying and predictable little grubbers from dummy half (but then again I wouldn't be relying on our halves to produce).
He might go alright in the ESL

I must have been watching a different game!

I cant disagree with anyone about his pace, yes he is not the quickest out of dummy half and getting slower with age.
He provides so many more options being there, one of his kicks cost us 7 sets but him kicking at anytime is a real threat to the opposition
Certainly takes the pressure off our directionless halves presently

I didn't think he was that bad at all. I do agree his ball service out of dummyhalf is no longer crisp but he's hardly the reason we lost.

Gotta laugh at the Farah bashing, he didn't lose us the game today. Too much dropped ball from outside backs, key forwards getting injured, halves making too many blunders.

Yes he is past his best but he is still our best no 9.Service is slower than it used to be but is still a threat with runs and kicking and provides more options in attack than our halves.i will be happy if he goes to esl in 2017 but this year we need him on the field.

It will be an interesting selection when Ballin gets back. Liddle should be signed as the long term option.

Ballin drama will shape up Round 10 but in the meantime we have bigger issues :(

17 blokes were the reason we lost today

Some need to take more responsibility than others

Brooks is starting to become another Marshall

The more times Moses get his hands on the ball the better , not that Moses was much better today

Far out this is just insane. He was outstanding. He brilliantly set up the Tedesco run from nothing in the first half which should have seen us leading 10 nil only to see his efforts butchered by hopeless execution. He was constantly forced to run by the complete lack of anyone else willing to put their hands up. As usual tackled his arse off, and generally looked far more in control of matters than our so-called boom halves.

Considering how inept the rest of the team was, I thought this to be one of the best performances I have seen from any player so far this year. Unlike most of the rest of them, you could see that he really wanted a win.

Halatau, Naiquama, Lawrence, Farah, Brooks gave the game up. They stuffed up whenever we had an opportunity in attack and vice versa in defence. Watch the tape of Halatau's bad play the ball and put it on repeat. This game was and always was going to be an old fashion stitch up to sack the coach. It will serve us well in the end as Taylor won't be coaching next weekend.

This game reminded me of the smashing we copped against the Dragons before Potter was sacked. We were a joke.
