Elijah Taylor - Attacking Pivot

Post by WestsSupporter » Fri 27 May, 2016 10:06 pm

In only three games, Elijah Taylor has proven himself to be an amazing player. Already he is central in our attacking structures. His slick skills continually put the halves in space, giving them time to show their wares.

What an outstanding recruitment. We got lucky!
Extremely frustrated fan. Try not to let my negativity get to you.

All the above as well as 40+ tackles in the middle

He's made a massive difference to out halves.

He has been great with his defence and passing game and with Sue off the bench tonight, we had great impact in the middle of the match. He has really value added to our pack.

He's added another dimension to our attack. I love it, needs to be re signed asap !!

Taylor is everything Sironen promised and never delivered. Very good defence player, runs great lines, plays ball quickly, with JAC our best buy this season.

IF you look back at his games this is the first time he has played like this at Penrith he was a tackling machine also played the same way at the warriors ......... so is Taylor a master coach

Inspirational effort

I never really watched him but he is a great player. He does so many things out there and gives the team a lot more options.

Maybe in a team with a lot of skill he wouldn't make such a difference but for our team with a pack of forwards who are willing but not really game breakers he makes a huge difference.

Taylor has exceed my expectations of him.
I always thought he was very one dimensional player- just a hard grafter who tackle his butt off.
However he and the coaching staff have develop a nice variation to the game plan and relieving a little bit of pressure of Brooks and Moses and playing a middle link similar to how a lock played back in the day with that roving play and little bit of skill (Jason Smith like).
Hoping that Laurence's contract restructure has freed up some money to get a decent centre and another edge backrower.

For a forward he's always been more of a ball distributor than a metre eater in attack but yeah, he seems to have been made (or made himself) a key part of the general attacking structure in a way he has not been used before.

He is a classy version of Liam Fulton, and that is not having a go at Fulton. He is just a little bit better than Liam was, by better I mean he hits harder and run harder

Supercoach despite having to say it 3 times you have a point but he is a different player to Liam. Liam was better on the edge. Taylor is better up the middle and 100 times better a ball player.

Im loving ET....IMO he was the catalyst for our attackin plays by drawing the defenders into him and firing off slick and often no look passes straight to Brooksie who looked awesome with the extra space.

Loving this guy so far.

Oops nearly forgot his 45 tackles in 70 mins.

ET for the win!
