I think thats the context the thread needs to be taken.

Theres been some praise of miller, and theres been some negative comments. Ive made both. But Bonstonker, u cant compare this analysis to past games of John Morris. Its all about how an 18 kid handled his first real step up to NRL, not how a seasoned player handled the role of halfback and all its responsibilies.

And Miller passed.

You are absolutely correct. This was started to take something positive out of a dark night. That positive is the potential of Miller. I wasnt saying he was the finished product.

Geez Bon comparing him to Morris is a bit rough

its interesting how sometimes the game result and team your playing can help you ease into first grade.

Take Rob Lui for example.

smoothly slotted into the team.

First game? against a sharkies team who couldn't go any lower at the time of playing them back in 2009.

Lui didn't actually do a great deal - however we won 56-10, and it made his integration all the more easier.

Miller has come into the team on back to back to back injuries. its a tough road - Ask Blake Lazarus. Miller has been thrust into a position he probably wasn't going to be in for probably 12 months.

Infact, the only player I have ever known in the tigers outfit to thrive on the back of that adversity is Blake Ayshford. However I can't rate that kid enough - IMO he should be the next long term signing we make.

Agreed.

Geeze some of you are hard task masters...the kids 18 and I think he did a better than average job. His defense is right up there. he didnt give up trying.

give him a break.

I have come to really like Blake Ayshford as a footballer as well. He appears a very coachable kid who learns from his mistakes and keeps on improving, you can`t ask for much more than that. He also gets himself involved and does plenty of good things throughout each game, BUT I do think some people are over rating his ability as a centre at this stage. Top quality centres score plenty of tries, Blake is really struggling to get across the stripe.
As i`ve said this doesn`t mean he`s a bad player, far from it, but he`s certainly nowhere near SOO standard until he can start scoring tries on a regular basis.

There is always next year, at the moment with the team we are fielding we are always going to get beat. We are playing well below what we can with the massive amount of injuries we currently have.

I thought Miller did reasonably well under the circumstances.
Defended well, made a couple of errors, but still put his hand up the whole night.

Agree Vicious. Blake needs to start converting the half chances before he is in that calibre, including linking better with his outside man.

Still he is already a better than average first grader.
