Mbye - Halves

With all the struggles and musical chairs in the halves, how hasn’t he been given a run. He can’t play anywhere else, and it’s where he’s played his best football. He surely couldn’t do any worse than the three stooges who alternate in those positions.

In attack at some stages last night he played full back, and when douehi scored that try he was at left centre.

The Dogs may disagree with you…

If you put a gun to their head, they’d probably take him over Reynolds.

Didn’t we try Mbye in the halves last year, or was that cleary?

Mbye hasn’t played in the halves while he’s been here.

Been saying that for a while. I think that’s the only place we’ll get decent value from him and it’s his best position.

We’re stuck with him for the next 2 years, no reason why he wouldn’t go well there.

No. He just needs to be cut. He’s toxic.

How is he toxic? Fair to say he isn’t performing, but toxic

5/8 is the only position he’s had success playing in. If we can’t move him on then we have to give him a crack there. There isn’t another position on the field he’s capable of playing to a high enough standard.

How did he go at hooker I haven’t seen the game he played there

Matterson needed to be cut. He ran the risk of causing disharmony amongst the playing group. He was toxic. Mbye might not be worth his contract, and the club would probably be better off if he moved on, but I don’t think toxic is the word you are looking for to describe him.

Mbye/ Doueihi new combo this can be looked at this season !

His best spot, by far, is 14.

He can come on and cover 1, 3,4, 6, and 9.

He is average in all those spots, but as a 14 that is fine.

Our big problems are he is captain ‘and’ on absolute elite level money.

If he was a bench player on 300, the perception of him would be really different.

Reality is he is nowhere near worth his pay. He hit the jackpot when he signed his deal. That is not his fault, but it is crippling us and will do for a couple more seasons.

If Mbye can play halfback I’d try him there with Madden there at 5/8 since Doueihi is needed at fullback at this stage.
