Obviously you're not going to change your opinion Sirro, but the majority here believe Galloway was one of the Tigers better players today. We'll agree to disagree on this one for the second week in a row.

Not quite sure where you are going with that Sirro. Galloway plays with controlled aggression. He doesn't carry on like a pork chop and he outplayed Woods sorry mate. Kennedy was a standout today but Galloway definitely got the better of Warea-Hargreaves. Some days the forward pack loses the battle. Today was one of those days.

I can accept that argument Willow. Maybe Galloway is just one of those guys who plays better when he doesnt take things personal......fair enough. If your right on that, then all is good, but i wish that wasnt the case. I like a forward leader who will take things very personally and go head to head with guys ala Paul Harragon. It ispires the team and i believe KG can do this for us.

He was our best forward Sirro, and we clearly struggled for go forward when he was off the field.

I agree with you on Heighington (another discussion but IMO he hinders out attack badly) but not on this one. We have other players who can do what you are looking for, Galloway was strong in attack and defense and made good meters in a badly beaten side.

Dont agree with me on something i said about Heighno 12 months ago, because he changed my opinion. The one time today Heighno was in an altercation he took the next hit up like a man......thats all im asking of Galloway

Heighington gets dominated in nearly every tackle, and gets in the way of our attack more often than not. I admire his work rate but he doesn't have the impact Galloway has.

Have you ever seen Heighington hammer a player in defense?

Ive just watch the replay and Galloway was the only bloke in our side that went continually forward when on the field....hit hard and often in defense too.....

I too again thought Keef was our best early on....dunno what you want from him KS, your clearly in the monority - again.
You keep bringing up other players, Keith is Keith and I think you just need to accept that, he goes forward, does his job, is disciplined.
Hard to please

Big Keith is no superstar, but at the same time I don`t think there are too many better props running around at the moment. Put it this way, i`d like to have another couple like him. He and Aaron Woods are doing there part in getting us going forward, the others aren`t doing a lot.

Keith was good today. Heighno in my opinion was our best forward but there are times when he annoys me.

Keith was our second best forward. He carts it up and defends well and that is all I want from him.

I agree with a comment from Allan Towle in another thread when he said Galloway should be given more game time by playing more than two stints like he does now. Keith has been one of our better forwards this year and was again today. More game time gives him further opportunities and also is a way of Sheens showing his faith in him as a leader of our pack thereby reinforcing belief, expectations and role. As for Heighno, he plays above his weight, gives his all and his workload would be missed if he wasn't there.

Galloway was ok I thought. Dwyer is the one who is living on his reputation on THAT tackle last year. Keep going Blue !
