@JoshColeman99 said in The Backline in 2021:
AJ has all the qualities for a good 1 , if the Penrith kids not here AJ is my selection …Mbye offers nothing in that role he will be the 14 for the entire season.
Is catching bombs a good fullback quality…?
Of course so why is Mbye the preferred ?
Outstanding passing game, the best of all the FB options.
He’s pretty fast too. His weakness was under the high ball but there’s no reason that can’t be improved over the off-season.
Exactly, get him under Happys Fig Tree all off season. In the absence of DL, Mbye is clearly our best option at FB IMO.
No doubt about it. Mbye was great for us at fullback in 2018. If he can get back to anything like that form he’ll be an asset. He’s a good player, just overpaid (not his fault)
Somebody down repped this post as well. There is a Mbye hater out there. Maybe TT is on the forum?
People seem to think Mbye is a bludger and the worst player in the world and never tries on the field. If he was in $400k no one would bat an eyelid about his performances.
He’s not though. And that’s the problem.
He has an opportunity to also prove all of us that don’t rate him incorrect and assume the fullback role and not a utility.
So does Brooks with no Marshall.
New season new team make up / combinations but i am being realistic if we finish in the 8 next year i would be surprised.
