Doesn't add anything. Even if he is playing lock...name one other NRL team who plays a lock who can't run the ball? A lock who doesnt charge over the advantage line?

The game in 2018 is all about getting over the advantage line and we are lucky to get 30m out of ET in any game. Unfortunately the game has changed and you can't carry players like this anymore. It puts to much pressure on other players to run the ball.
I feel the same way.
Its an opinion!

ET is a specialist lock can play no other position. He is a tackling machine who makes it easier for the forwards to focus on making metres rather than only defence. He can’t be selected at 9 ever again. He’s either lock or in NSW cup it’s that simple Cleary needs to select a side and stick with it if ether remaining games.
Agree Tyga - Lock or nowhere.

He is a much better lock than Eisenhuth imo, who is a soft runner in attack (can't be size), what is it?

He was a revaluation when Taylor signed him. Had him playing as a link man. Cleary has turned him into a tackling dummy, and a horrendous dummy half.
Yeah I must admit I prefer the "JT" version of ET over how IC uses him....Taylor offers virtually nothing in attack and little more in defence.

Have we finally realised this guy is useless
I've been saying it for a few seasons now.
He adds ZERO always has.

Next you'll all realise that Matulino is worse and Packer is not far behind, but I wonder how long it takes?
Slow learners around these parts.
Hopefully the lights are starting to come on that cleary is a very average coach...bit like trent barrett, lovely blokes but not up to it
Like so many others on this forum, you're amusement value if nothing else. Thanks.

Eiso is a big slow human with no explosive power. Works hard but not athletic enough for first grade. I understand Ivan rewards attitude and effort but we are at a stage where the best players need to come through. ET has to be lock. The issue is a bad 9 cripples your team. You can win with a average to good 9 but not with ET against good teams.

First Two tries from dummy half passes. See what happens when we have a dummy half.

The problem is we also have Taylor alongside Eisenhuth and Rochow who both also have zero impact and make limited metres. We could probably have ET behind the big Canberra pack to balance them, but playing alongside that backrow is ordinary.
