Didn't realise he missed that many tackles, sorry for trying to be positive after a win!

Lovett, Edwards, JLJ. These are the players, no matter how well they play are the forum's designated punching bags. They're never to be praised, ever.

Edwards has played over 100 games. Not sure if that's enough games to constitute a first grader.

Lawrence and Aloiai can't come back soon enough.
We have too many that struggle in NSW cup.

I think you know what I mean. Lets not get silly.

Edwards had the best game ive seen him play today, but its a rarity. Would he be a first grader at any of the top 8 teams. Thats what we want to be isnt it?

The complaints really are tiring. The way our cap has been so mismanaged, players like him are a by product of it. What do you expect?

At full strength he doesn't play but he was good today, I don't know where the 10 missed tackles stat is coming from I can't find it NRL.com but he did make 29 including 5 x 1 on 1 tackles which was more than anyone else. Sure Lovett makes 30 tackles but never does he dominate. We had a good win let's enjoy it.

Edwards had a GREAT game today!

Stop using stats to put him down because you dislike him. Sometimes stats don't tell the whole story, and that was evident today.

I thought Joel was one of our best today and made some dominate tackles that slowed the ruck down when we were under pressure. Sure, he may not be FG standard week in, week out. But if he keeps replicating performances like that, many clubs would happily play him in FG. Consistency is an issue, but enjoy the win and be grateful he had a good game.

Fair enough he missed 10, I still say he had a good game defensively as some of the 29 he made stopped knights players in there tracks.

I will be the first to admit he hasn't done much since joining us but I have to give the guy credit, strong effort today and really tightened up our middle.
Are you for real mate, the guy missed 10 tackles against a reserve grade quality team, the guy makes Lovett look good.
You would be joking - not even a soft pillow makes Lovett look good.

Lovett would knock the skin off a bread and butter pudding. Edwards misses more tackles, maybe - but at least he hits hard with the ones he makes.

i think u edwards haters dont watch what he does the reason he has so many missed tackles isbecause hes usally the first one in some of his socalled missed tackles help our defence more tnan some tackles lovett makes as in third man in if u get what i meani.IF u have ever watched edwards in nsw cup he hits just as hard and just as often in that grade.Give the bloke a go

I don't whether he missed ten tackles or not but the ones I saw him make, he hit them like a B Double.

According to the stats Nathan Ross made nearly 200m today, not bad for one of the worst blokes on the park.
I thought Edwards was strong, didn't hit it up much and I didn't notice him miss 10, his involvements that I noticed were covering Brooks (who defended exceptionally well) and stopping players in their tracks. Not his biggest fan but I thought he played well today. The only time I notice Lovett is when he's losing ground each run or letting opposition run past him unchecked.
Happy to keep him on in NSW Cup, he can do a job in first grade if needed (as he showed).
