He said in an interview that Anthony Griffin dropped him because he was too one dimensional, defence orientated, so he went back to NSW Cup and worked on his attack, we are now reaping those rewards, thanks Anthony Griffin.

SO the question is .....Is Jason Taylor a master coach for letting Elijah Taylor play like that because Jason Taylor makes the game plans or just got lucky

I get the impression that he's a humble, honourable guy that will probably agree to an extension as a sign of gratitude for being the opportunity to play first grade again. He wanted that chance and not only do we have him playing first grade but we've given him a central role in both attack and defence. If he keeps this form up though we'll need to make him a solid offer, which is fine because he'll have earned it.

Jason Taylor is far from a master coach, surely you could have worked that out by now

Ill be honest I have been very impressed

I had not watched much of him at Penrith. Baffled how he could have been in reserves there.

He has been bloody outstanding.

We need to sign him for 3 years not 3 months!!!

I feel the same! The vibe I get from him is he loves Rugby League and he wants to play for the team he has the best opportunities with.

Any news on how he's coming along with the team song?
Extremely frustrated fan. Try not to let my negativity get to you.

A couple of his passes went to ground tonight.

Not to be a downer because he has been great.

JT has been a terrible coach. That can't really be debated rationally.

Maybe though JT has gotten this spot on. He picked ET straight away and has given him a critical role within the team. Maybe JT has a chance to improve as a coach. All I want from JT is more smart decisions.

Can't comment on his vocal chords, but at least the team have had the opportunity to sing since he came into the side.

x 2.

I can't believe he was playing reserve grade at Penrith. What a dud decision. I reckon he should make every NRL team in the comp.

We've certainly looked a different team since he came on the scene

Seems like his forced stint by Griffin in NSW Cup to pick up his attack has worked, it seems he is surprising most people at the Weststigers who just thought he was a workhorse, well done Anthony Griffin, you cut us a break.

Looking like Bodene Thompson all over again - career resurrected by WT - will get call up to NZ squad if form continues. And we have massive fight on our hands to retain him.
