Humble v Masada

Post by happy tiger » Fri 08 Jun, 2012 10:38 pm

Is it just me , but I don't like the way Iosefa plays out of dummy half and prefer Humble's style

At least three times he needed to feed Benji and he ambles out of half Preferred Humble's scoots which get us on the front foot

Personally think Humbles defence is better also

Who was your pick ??

Strange I much prefer iosefa he looks like he makes more of an impact and much better setting up the forwards . Humble looks to slow out of dummy half and gives no real zip . Iosefa to me looks like a genuine hooker especially given he is new to the club, the players, combinations and also getting up from nsw cup fitness to nrl in the rain

Defiantly iosefa for me

Masada I thought looked talented with the ball, held his own and did some nice things with the ball, although he gave away two penalties, and I did prefer humbles defense, he has heaps of ticker, I would lean towards humble but happy to have both while is out

probs the wrong thread, but woods really needs to be more careful when taking a pass from dummy half. twice i thought he was offside today and once he got caught. twice last week as well. and once against NQ. hopefully, someone else picks up on that as well.

uuh.. i prefer masada, better service than humble. 8 minutes of politoni looked better than masada or humble imo though

Iosefa is to dangerous took authority of critical decisions after only playing half a game. I hate his style, humble just had a off night probablly lost confidence that a self egotistic was swapping and changing with him.

My point was our left side seemed to function in attack Can't be any coincidence , he knows when to feed Benji

Iosefa is a bit of a Robbie wannabe , drifts across field but doesn't do anything or hit a runner

To those saying that Humble lacks zip , his first run out of dummy half almost split Melbourne down the guts

Masada is alright, but took a couple of wrong options in attack, particularly with attacking kicks which weren't really on. He got through plenty of defence though, but lacks Farah's organisational skills. Humble looks a little more skillful, but doesn't make the same sort of metres out of dummyhalf as Masada.

I still think Politoni should be given a go.

Next week iosefa gone humble bench, honestly hope iosefa stays in nsw cup for the rest of the year. Not that he's a bad player I just don't think there's a spot for him. Happy for farah to play all game every game for the rest of the season, maybe humble to take over for a half or 20 every now and then to rest farah but that's it

I thought Iosefa did well considering he has only just joined the club and can only improve with each game.A lot of posts were made saying we should give Adam Blair more time why should Iosefa be any different?

Bit slow for me, prefer Humble as he has a little more zip about him.

They are both poor options at hooker.

We need someone to provide quality, quick ball to our play makers.

Humble threw at least three forward passes in the first half (only one was picked up) and Iosefa isn't much better.

I thought Iosefa was giving quality service and he defends well just took a few poor options here and there but that can be worked on as he finds his role more in the team

For me Masada looked more natural at hooker. Humble perhaps is a better attacker but his service from dummy half is a bit unreliable. I thought Masada did pretty much what he was required to do - tackle a lot and do a solid job in attack. His stats indicate he did pretty well.

Seeing as though we have the bye before SOO 3 you'd think next week (off the bench) is possibly the last time either of them will see significant game time at hooker (barring anything going amiss with Farah).

Masada defended well. Humble offered a little more with the pill.

I think Politoni would do a better job than either, but if I had to choose I'd probably take Masada again as he was Farah-esque in the way he defended. Runs well from dummy half as well.
And the sky is filled with light, can you see it?
And the black is really white, if you believe it.
And the longing that you feel, you know none of this is real;
You will find a better place, in this twilight...
