McKinnon

Today showed why he is easily the best fullback at the club. As long as he is fit he should have a mortgage on the number 1 jersey here. Thoughts?

Nothing to think about. It's a dead set given.

I hope anyone who thinks Moltzen should be at fullback was watching today.

he chimes in well in attack and defends just as well too, just hope that the hammy doesn't cause any more issues this year

Had a fantastic game, support play was brilliant, that tackle on Dane Tilse in the last 20 minutes was simply amazing. He really really impressed me today, that pick up too in the first half! Wow, great game McKinnon, the kind of performance I expected from him when I'd heard we poached him from NZ.

Hard to mount an argument against Mckinnon after today. He still looks to lack pace and i still feel we could "find" someone better, but if he keeps playing like today than im happy to have him wear the one.

He is the complete fullback in that he does everything perfectly. He also doesn't have Moltzens pace or Ryan's go forward.

Ryan's go forward? The only thing Ryan is good for is to be the first to race in and congratulate a try scorer.

bit harsh on beau there.

go and watch some footage of Beau. (and not footy show garbage)

He always makes meters with the ball, and is not afraid of taking a hit-up, and despite Lui hitting the gap, the real credit for that try goes to Beau for not grassing that awful pass he got, then somehow getting a magic ball to Fifita.

slight tweak to the team IMHO would be to put beau in the centres, and put moltzen back to 14.

dunno whats gonna happen to either of them when Tuqiri and Lawrence are back though, and also poor Mitch Brown will be out too.

McKinnon's positional play is Hogo like, okay lacks pace but every week he and Marshall are getting a better combination going. I think wade with a torn hammy is better than the other two options we have used!!!

Sheens is right to nurse those hammy's
Wests Tigers don't need a Coach.. The playing group has taken over..

I`ve got to admit I didn`t think McKinnon was still capable of playing as well as he did today.
I haven`t seen him play even close to that well for the Wests Tigers before and haven`t seen him play that well for about 3 years.
I`m happy to be wrong though, it just makes the Wests Tigers side even stronger if McKinnon can keep playing as well as he did today.

Coul dhave 4 at least if the ball had bounced his way. A great game and I have to be honest i was sceptical and still ma to an extent re his injury but happy with today. Itis great to have a specialist FB on the field.

His tackle on Shillington was it? on the the line was just outstanding it looked for all monet the big man was just going to barge over.

I'm hoping he can stay healthy. I think we will do well this season if he he stay's injury free.

He is the full back I have been waiting for since Hodgo left.

Easily his best game for the club. Was brilliant both in support and the way he positioned himself
