Rowdy

Is he playing busted? Looks way off the pace and is being used as a battering ram

Definitely something amiss. Mind you, I thought tonight was one of his better games this year.

I know he is coming back from a hip & hammy injury, also i noticed a lot of strapping on his shoulders, I know he will come good & we just dont seem to be the same team.

His left shoulder is no good at the moment.

I was wondering the same thing last night. He's been off the pace every game so far. I know he is probably playing busted but he seems to have lost a yard or two when he's got the ball as well, no punch through in to any half gaps at all at the moment.

Neither of the centres should be selected next week if I am completely honest is assessing their seasons to this point

I am aware but playing gunshy nursing him back from injury directly contribued to finals losses the last two seasons and is a proven failure to do so in the top grade.

When you are so 50/50 that Tim Simona doesn't play reserve grade to be your shadow player and did so before last weeks game as well you have a problem

Agree. He should be rested until the injury heals sufficiently. Reddy can slot in, or Simona. But I'd have Reddy and Simona as my starting centres based on the current form of Rowdy and Ayshford. Hell, Ayshford made Croker look like an Origin rep last night.

When elite athletes have a serious injury as Chris has had sometimes they don't come back to where they were, I hope this is not the case for Chris but we should be aware this could happen.

Agreed Willow, Croker is one of the worst centres in NRL and we made him look like a world beater. Should have had Ellis running at him all night if we could get field position and hold onto the pill
