Bellamy is a professional he picked Kpro despite him signing with Union. Whilst there is a sniff of a top 8 spot the best team available that we are paying for must be picked.

Rankin not the right man simple.

Who do you pick if JAC has gone to Melbourne?

The coach should have picked Cherrington after ruling Farah out and knowing Dene was injured, the Rankin on the wing barely got by with the excuse of his goal kicking, without goal kicking it is another moronic selection.

Yep. I'd love to hear the reason why. How good were the Storm wingers ? How much better a team would we be with Koro and Nofo as our wingers and Farah or Cherrington playing dummy half.

Rankin did not loose as the game, we lost the game because we threw 2 forward passes from dummy half,kicked out on the full from the kick off,threw a shocking ball for Koro to score and have the worst goal kicker in living memory, but if you want to keep bagging Rankin thats fine

His calm head and ability to read to play were astounding.

Every single one of his 51 meters in attack including being driven backwards were breathtaking.

His 2 tackles and 2 missed tackles made up and complemented one another perfectly.

His 2 errors including one at the death which helped Melbourne set up for a field goal were quality.

Not to mention his magnificent goal kicking ability.

Never before have I seen a winger of this quality play first grade Rugby League.



(At least Nofoaluma made up for a poor first half with a good second half). This bloke is garbage. If you guys still can't see it, you're blind. A momentum halter and just utter crap.
How many NRL games have you played champ??

to be fair we should be in the market for two new wingers, neither are top grade

I was at the game today and I can tell you his selection was a waste.
Previous posters suggest he didn't get an opportunity to see much ball, this is true. But it was because he was never a chance to beat his opposite number for pace.

There were several chances close to our line were a true winger would have troubled them and had them on their heels.
Another opportunity was the shift left off the restart, but he didn't push up in support quick enough.

I don't blame him for being played out of position, the same I don't blame Dene or Taylor.

We've got a 6 & 7, it's time they picked a true hooker & "quick" winger and stuck with them.

If JAC is being over looked due to his up coming departure than where do they draw the line with ET,todays paper has him declaring that he doesn't know where he will be next season.

Can't blame the guy. Yes he was rubbish but they all were the first half.
Not Rankin's fault he's being made to play out of position. He's doing his best.

Exactly, he should not be playing wing in first grade, not his fault.

Would put more blame on Taylor for continuing to pick him out of position.

Yes. Well said.
I was there too. Every time the ball came to Rankin's side you could almost hear a collective intake of breath from the Tigers fans.
I went with a big group of Storm fans and they all couldn't believe JAC wasn't in the team. We could have really used him to chase down Koro's length of the field runs. They also couldn't believe we didn't name a hooker. Jeez, we know it, the opposing fans know it, what the hell is going on with team selection.
It's things like this that make me so disappointed and frustrated as a lifelong Tigers fan and agree that JT has got to go. This is fundamental stuff people.

I thought he was brought back partly for his goal kicking??

Rankin tries but he is a pretty average winger.

Nobody has mentioned Naiqama yet. I thought he was by far our worst out there today. The worst defending I have ever seen. The worst thing is that he looked like he gave up very easily when Koro ran through his line. Jeez mate, you are being paid to be a professional footballer, at least act like it.

Who knows why he was brought back. It wasn't for his attacking prowess that's for damn sure
