He's not a FG winger, it has been shown on multiple occasions this year and today was no different.

Better dummy half than winger...
Wests Tigers don't need a Coach.. The playing group has taken over..

I reckon Rankin is Moltzen's long lost twin !
He must do a Stella job of detailing JT's car each week !

Thought he was fine today apart from that early drop ball. Dont blame him for being pushed out, that was a hospital from Teddy.

Looked sharp out of dummy half and made good metres a couple of times when we were struggling for momentum.

A bit harsh on Rankin. He kicked the goals that counted and they weren't all easy. He came back well after dropping the ball early and took a couple of important catches on his line with Dragons seemingly ready to score. A good tradesman like effort.

Agree with this.

Addo-Carr was poor in NSW Cup yesterday too, so we don't exactly have someone knocking down the door. He scored 2 tries (one of which was a length of the field intercept), but he also bombed 2 tries and defended poorly.

Ordinary winger,suspect under high ball,gets pushed back and man handled easily,tries hard but just isn't a first grader ,no other club would want him.

Not a winger and not in our best 17. Been saying since start of season. Tradesman like yes... but not what we need.

Another coach decision that makes no sense.

I like Rankin, I really do, but JT has done him no favours by playing on the wing for practically the entire season. I really don't know what the coach expects from him out there! As far as I know, he has never played on the wing in his short career. I would love to see what he could do playing in his right position.

Justin Hunt is a proven NRL winger who can also kick goals - he would've been a far better option to groom into first grade this season, but no, even with three quarters of the season gone, JT has persisted with the Rankin on the wing experiment even though it has been an obvious failure - I just don't get it.
Sooner or later, next year has to be this year - Ricksen
