I hope he lifts from here and it makes him a better player and person. Some of them recover. Some never do. Nights like tonight can smash a bloke to pieces forever. Its horrible to watch.
He's had plenty of shockers. I don't understand what anyone sees in this player. Lacklustre in attack and terrible in defence. Does not even know his own best position. Even his 'good' games (there a very few of them mind you) are only 'good' because he doesn't do anything which directly contributes to the opposition scoring.

Rugby League is a game of momentum. Jordan Rankin is a player who often gifts the opposition big momentum. We cannot have him playing first grade in 2017 if we want to make some noise. He is a big problem.
Couldn't agree more, the bloke has had a few deadest shockers plus a stack of ordinary games and 2 good games, he is way out of his depth, like the coach who keeps picking him. :bash

I couldn't agree more. Rankin, although he tries hard, is just not first grade material. He's a reserve grader to be called upon only if the top 17 (and even a few others) are injured or on rep duties.
I'm embarrassed that this guy keeps getting selected each week for us. Him and Malone shouldn't ever be in our starting team again. Any other coach would of dropped him by now, i just can't work it out.

Agree 100%

All the times we've said 'rankin played well' have generally been because he wasn't completely diabolical and cost us a heap of points. Look I'm sure he's the first to training, is a great bloke and tries his butt out but the guy isn't and had never been a first grade NRL player.

I can think of countless times he has cost us.

* against parra on Easter he gets a ball 5m with no one within a mile of him and falls over. Gordon comes and covers him

* against the dogs we've scored to take the lead and have all the momentum, Simona makes a break, kicks infield, rankin couldn't get a better bounce and he drops it cold. Dogs score next set and win

* the diabolical drops tonight which lead to 3 tries against us. Essentially if teddy or any semi non terrible fullback plays we conceded 18 less points.

The guy is terrible, like so so bad. I would take Hasan Saleh or Mark O'Halloran over him. Seriously

The saddest part of it all......is that this guy is a full-time Professional player and gets paid for going to training and staying back with JT kicking goals :lol:

Not his fault I suppose, blame the clueless begger.

He has to be dropped next week. Bring in Hunt. Heck, even a mannequin with a Tigers jersey could do better. He's cooked. Done. Don't let the door hit you on the way out

Yep, you should, because if you are defending Rankin and saying he is NRL standard then you haven't got a bloody clue

What made me laugh tonight was during the warm up , SuperCoach Taylor was out on the field wearing his cheap suit giving his pet shop boy Rankin some pointers :lol:

You had to be there Geo it was funny though, never seen a Coach in a suit basically warm up with the squad.

Well of course I did...Penrith should have won..very disappointed in the Wests Tigers performance...especially the forward pack...stark contrast to the team that thumped the Cowboys...

Glad to see you are revelling in it ...
