Doueihi currently is an average centre, maybe in a few years he can develop into a good 5/8. Until then, offer him centre money. We can also save money on the winger that plays next to him, they don't need to be tall because Doueihi is, and he is never going to pass them the ball.

Funny, well, maybe odd that Doueihi is getting attacked tonight.

As a fan that is often bemused by "will to win" or "leader" and the like comments about Adam, as his match work ethic is often below par, I was actually impressed with his commitment and efforts off the ball in defence in Tamworth.

Surprised to see him working off the ball in defence and actually saving at least one try, so this would not be my choice of game to attack him over, as for mine he put in.

Doueihi really needs to work on his speed in the offseason. He could be so dangerous with an extra step because he's hard to tackle as is due to his frame. But unless he can hit those mini gaps, at best he's gonna have to bust a tackle and offload to create opportunities.

I'm not going to be critical of him this year because he's returning from injury and our team is pretty busted. Even if he hasn't gone well, he's still pretty clearly the 2nd best half we have after Hastings. Plus he's not a natural first receiver which he had to play a bit of tonight as it seemed he and Madden split the duty. Put Hastings inside of him and he's a much different player - i.e. Cowboys & Broncos games.

He may or may not be a long term solution in the halves, but he's certainly shown enough to persist with for at least another season.

Adam will be a centre and/or 5/8th at the WT , moving forward. What’s best for both club & player. Ball is in his hands.

Brooks does those efforts every game yet people still have a go at him.

The best thing Adam can do in this game is let Madden do almost all the kicking and most importantly, use that big body of his to run the ball and take the pressure off the forwards.

Run the ball son.
I said it over and over, he is a backrower. There he can hog the ball all he likes and do the tackle busting he is known for. For gods sake he is big enough to play there. Why does he want to be a half only. He probably lacks confidence in his defence.

Douhi was great last year,but since returning looks disinterested and slow
Not sure whether its injury related or he wld prefer to be elsewhere
Hes not gonna get 570k from any other club..nor us on this form
Wake up Adam and put in some effort and let yr future sort itself out
He was massively overated last year, mainly by the Brooks death squadron. I think Brooks needs a change, but the amount of crucial tackles he made , and his effort was far ahead of AD and the rest of the side. AD was not great last year, he was ,and still is, an average player at best,in a side lacking speed and talent all over the park. Our interest in keeping sub standard players seems to continue.
