His dummy half passing was worse than Robbie’s. Very slow service and not sure on of the passes actually hit the mark. 1st receiver was constantly reaching to take his passes. Rankin is a better dummy half!!!
You’ve just described most third string hookers. Good thing he’s our third string hooker.
He’ll be solid enough in NSW Cup
Looked awful in defence this weekend
I remember Blake Austin being written because of his defence in 9s. Then everyone realised it is a completely different game then 13 a side football.
His defence still isn’t very good, but he’s a half so it’s mostly hidden. McIlwrick is a hooker so will need to do a mountain of defensive work.
I can’t see him playing FG unless there are a few injuries.
Hunt looked better when he went to 9 for a bit and Hunt isn’t a hooker, ditto for Rankin.
Hooker is a big concern for us this season, don’t let the fact that we have 3 hookers and a few utilities in that position fool you, none of them are ready.
Balin has missed 2 seasons now, coming off busted knees and isn’t getting younger.
Liddle is, well (little) and IMO not ready (especially stepping into a team who’s defense is fragile)
McIIrick isn’t NRL standard
Taylor’s future hinges on this position working better than it did with Robbie, I bet Taylor is having nightmares about it.
