Why no Felise?

Unread post by Club Sandwich » Sat 02 Jul, 2016 4:46 pm

No idea why Felise didnt make the final team for the game against Penrith. Thought he has been one of our better players in recent weeks.
Does anyone know if he picked up an injury?
No MCK either? Jeez
Tigers tragic since 1980.

I would suggest it is just to balance the bench and have a backrower and hooker on there. Seems Woods, Sue, Ava & Grant are rated above him, but he is a great backup.

None of the players on the bench deserve to be dropped really. You could argue Farah should play 80 and Halatau miss out completely, but Taylor has made his stance clear on that issue.

Rubbish, Lovett is such a one dimensional and the love child of the scarecrow! Is the only reason he's in the team.
Felise was almost the best player on field last week, so much for the policy on the best players for positions??

Lovett does his job well. Take the blinkers off.

The kid is 19 playing one of the toughest positions on the field...one thing I'll give Taylor is player welfare is one of his priorities...Lovett saved 3 tries today...

Lovett is a much improved player. I was a massive critic of his 12 months ago and went as far as saying that re-signing was a disgraceful decision. But the change in him his remarkeable. 12 months his metres after contact was nil, now he is making 4-5 metres each run after contact. Impressive.

He obviously has a great work ethic and is a great defender pound for pound. He can miss tackles on big fellas one on one but has been much better this year.

I still have a problem with Dene being in the team, wasted spot for 18 minutes game time.

Not really. It allows Farah to sit out the intensity of the first 20. That should be his role for the rest of the yr, just playing the first 20, unless there are injuries.
