JAC dropped, interesting

presumably after a poor game, signing with melbourne and the club desperately needing a goal kicker that decision makes a fair bit of sense

Rankin back in on the wing is a terrible decision. Not only is he a poor defender, he is incredibly slow, he is NOT winger at all and provides nothing in attack. For those that say "oh but goalkicking," his goalkicking record is about as bad as Moses. An absolute nothing selection. Not only this but he's been ordinary in state cup, hasn't exactly been knocking on the door. JAC dropped back to state cup few days ago was best on ground.

So what if JAC is leaving us next year. We're still a chance at the 8, so you play your best possible team. Rankin in front of JAC on the wing is madness. Goakicking isn't an excuse as Rankin is a poor goalkicker as well. I'm annoyed.

Makes no sense considering Rankin is a bad goal kicker, not a winger and we are still in contention to make the 8.

Rankin might not have the excitement factor of JAC but i think he's more reliable.
Pretty funny that a club that has as many hookers as we do needs to use Halatau as the starting #9

More reliable? How so?

Rankin is slow and makes more errors per game than Addo-Carr. I wouldn't say he's more reliable at all.

People should stop trying their hardest to justify a nonsensical decision by JT. It's rubbish.

It is a deadest joke that Dene is our starting hooker, and I hope Rankin has improved his kicking or that is another dud call as well.

Rankin is slow and makes more errors per game than Addo-Carr. I wouldn't say he's more reliable at all.
JAC has 5 errors from 5 games.
Rankin has 10 errors from 12 games.
So Addo-Car actually makes more errors per game.

I'd say Rankin is also the smarter footballer, he positions himself and reads the play much better than JAC does. And that's saying a lot considering this is Rankins first year on the wing, maybe playing fullback has helped him with that.

Rankin has improved a lot already this year and IMO deserves his spot in the team.

Good side, best we can pick.

Seriously.....the one change is a winger. They deadset grow on trees.

Never said I was full of wisdom mate... Just getting sick of the whinging purely based on Taylor hatred.... The bloke had an opportunity to sign with "his beloved tigers" and he went for more cash, too bad so sad. Enjoy reserve grade and let fans watch a bloke who is committed to OUR team.... It's simple really. But really, keep whinging.... It might help change the selection.

I was counting getting dragged back into your own in goal as well. Which would put Rankin ahead.
I disagree on Rankin with better positioning. All you've provided for is Rankin makes slightly less 'errors.'

I'd say in attack he is way off JAC. Why should JAC be dropped?

How has Rankin improved? In what galaxy has he improved? Theres a good reason as to why he only played 17 games of first grade for GOLD COAST of all clubs in 5 years.

Utility reserve grader .. at best.
