But for some reason (maybe to fool us) he replaced JJ with Edwards who hasnt been effective the last 2 games in FG

Lovett's selection ? i have stopped complaining about him but im guessing whilst people are complaining and venting their frustration they are also disappointed he was getting moved in to the centres..
We can live with him in the 17 off the bench but not in the centres

Its becoming a case of the straw that broke the back, too many poor decisions from Taylor at the one time
We lost 2 forwards on the bench and people are surprised that Taylor did not want to use Edwards at hooker as he had previously planned.

Also Rankin is a natural half. Surely it was a logical to slot him into hooker to give Halatau a break in the circumstances? I thought his service was excellent. Im not sure I like my hooker defending on the wing but given the circumstances of the game I can live with it.

At last some common sense. The plan was never to use Rankin at half but when Grant and Rowdy went down this was the best option same as putting Lovett at centre. They have been grooming Edwards for the role in Intrust and it makes sense to me as he is a good low defender and from what I have seen from Intrust games capable of delivering a service similar to Dene from dummy half. IMO they looked at the Dragons centers and decided that, whilst there was a risk shifting Lovett, but thought he was a better option than moving Edwards. And apart from 1 break that lead to a try cause of a miss by both Brooks and Lovett, it worked. Guess we will see who is right if they maintain Edwards against Parra and we don't lose 2 players like Grant (after 3 mins) and Rowdy (after 40 }

Joel Edwards is dead set plodder.
If he is our back up plan at hooker over the last 6 weeks I fear we are doomed once we get tested by the better sides.

Did he play any dummy half against the Dragons? From where i was it looked like Rankin was the one filling in.

Rankin was there, although it may not have been the plan prior to injuries.

You are wrong the bloke who picks it thinks otherwise.He is just too pig headed to admit he is wrong
Yeah we're all wrong.. A hooker playing half the game and then the rest of the team taking turns there because it isn't an important position. And it opens up the bench to fit in a gun player like Edwards - genius!
Well ballin is injured, liddle can't play and Farah ruled himself out last Saturday. His only choice is Cherrington, not sure what's going on with him.
What about Littlejohn? Is he still alive? I think he'd be very decent at hooker
Tigers tragic since 1980.

Yeah no one on the forum has really commented to say yes or no however one of the posts, not sure if Geos or Innsaines said it was bruising and no ligament damage or break

Based on that i'd think he will play but have my reservations the way he limped off on Sunday

my 2cents worth
Not every player can pass both ways with natural ease and comfort.
Hence we have players on the right and left wings, center etc.
same kind-of applies to halves hence they pick their preferred spots.
Whilst Rankin may be better suited in the halves role like he prefers i doubt he will be as good hooker as the first line hookers who have natural ability to pass either way, take runs and make those decisions on the fly to pass or run.
To provide an example, ET has had far too many forward passes from dummy half
Peter Wallace converted from Halves to Hooking and it took him 2 seasons to get it right, he threw a fair few forward passes too.

Rankin fits into Taylors plans of just getting the ball from dummy half and getting it to the next person but you have to question the value in this.
Where is the threat from dummy half if all you are doing is throwing the ball to the next person..

Anywho, i'm not a coach in any grade, just a real frustrated supporter of the club at the moment

That is the one thing that throws Taylors new vision out the window. We have Edwards basically replacing Farah yet he did not play D/H and we got a winger to play this role, resulting in a backline shuffle, that exposed us in attack and defence.

If they decided on MCK,Littlejohn or Siro you might think Taylor has a vision and is telling the truth about cohesion as they at least can fill a gap and offer choices, but Edwards makes Bukes look like SBW

Umm,
I'm glad your a focused supporter of our club but your obviously not much of an observer of rugby league with your above statement.
Peter Wallace played hooker for the first time this year in like round 4 or 5 when Segy got injured.
And ET had been used at hooker before Taylor putting him there this year.
He played in the Grand final against Manly off the bench at hooker and for New Zealand in that role.
But you are right about players and having their prefered sides.

Wallace is a full time hooker now but he has been in and out of the rake position throughout games in the last 2 seasons.
They did a similar rotation as the raiders. My observation comes from those times too.

HAHAHA no my man
The reference is Raiders have a 2 man hooker rotation

Patnhers did a similar thing
They have Seggy, Peachey and Wallace rotate through and share hooking
