JACOB MILLER

Post by Demps » Fri 08 Apr, 2011 10:04 pm

People always make a thread about an individual player to criticize or praise...
Don't wanna see this lad's efforts go ignored.

How good was he !?
That tackle on Sandow that got us the ball, wow....
This guy really is a star, I saw on the LU forum some poster said to drop him from the bench for Fulton when he's fit, but Miller rly played brilliantly in both games for 16 minutes.

Came on for Ellis with 16 to go and charges straight @ Sammy Burgess, showing a lot of heart.
I really rate the kid and even if he is a halfback, maybe he could fit the Craig Wing utility role ?

Not sure what the situation will be when full strength but this kid defo has a big future.

Agreed. He looks the goods and has amazing confidence for a kid of 18

Shows great promise. I thought he had a pretty good 15 minutes.

Well said Demps. What courage to run at Burgess and what awareness to scope up lose ball and set us back on attack.

When Prince left us we had no half back. Now we have 3 quality players to choose from.

I thought it was interesting that on the channel 9 commentary Joey praised the fact he took on the line with his first touch. As Demps said, very courageous to run at the show pony pommy. Some good signs there and very impressive at only 18.

Fulton should no doubt take his spot when fit but he played with some heart when he came on. He is a great prospect for the future but tbh too early.

Just hope shifty gives him a better shot than he did last year with Lazarus & Waters, crikey I'm getting a little excited with the battle for positions when all our injured boys are back, what about Gareth tonight.

He was involved with everything with his time on the field, but still needs to work on picking his passes.

Spot on..

He was confident running the ball & not scared to offload regardless of what play it was..

I would love to see him start a game so we get to see more of what he is capable of. He sure wont be shy for a 18yr old directing the tigers veterans around, you can just see it in him.

He has a wicked step similar to Mitchel Pearce when he cuts back into play..
He will be a big danger for oppositions when Benji and the likes are running across field and shifting the opposition line sideways for Miller to then cut back into a hole.

Josh forcing the error on that little cat Sandow and then drawing the penalty was one of my favourite passages of the game! :)

Looked good out there in limited time again. He has good vision which is a big advantage and at 18 years of age is easily as good as Moltzen or Lui at the same age. Unsure how often he will be used this season, but this experience will do him good as he continues to mature and develop. Definitely looks a top prospect.

Came on when we were welly and truly on top, but every time I see this kid I see Gary Freeman. Tough,confident and heaps of ability. If it was my call I would send Robbie off to hospital slot Miller into the 17. I think Lui is class, but I think Miller could be the classic old fashion no7 in the Freeman/Tommy mould

Read on the NRL website that Daniella might have a torn pec so wonder if Sheens will shift Moltzen to centre and Miller to starting half.

I see more comparisons with A Johns. Big, strong and good kicking game. Would love him to get ball close to the line.

Willow

I think he has handled the jump to first grade better than both of them.

I wouldnt mind seeing:

1. Moltzen
7. Miller
13. Lui

In 2013

Looks good i love his confidence and enthusiasm he was bouncing around out there very busy and looked like his talk was non stop the kid was very impressive. Reminds me of Moltzen a little.

This kid looks sharp, defence is solid, I hope we can hang onto him for a while.
