Mitch Brown (what has he done wrong)

Post by everett » Tue 15 Mar, 2011 10:06 pm

Does anyone know why Mitch Brown continues to be overlooked for NRL.

He is built strong and has a bit of pace. His support play needs improvement.

He was our full back for the last 6 games and was solid at the back yet has been overlooked for the first two games. Can't even get a spot on wing (better than Utai) or bench.

Is he a poor trainer? Poor attitude ? Has he fallen out with Sheens (The Fonz)?

From memory he struggled to cement a NRL spot with Cronulla. Is there a trend.

Looking forward to hearing "Balmain Bug" opinion plus others

someone on another thread mentioned they knew why he was not getting start Who knows but form from last year would suggest he be one of the 1st 5 picked

Probably because he might play really well on the right wing, then there would be no excuse to put sleau back in

Mitch Brown is actually Matt Utai.


Seriously.

He did nothing wrong, I would have him in the side for sure. He won't win you a game, but we have enough match winners in the side, what's important though is that he won't lose you a game.

The Fonz loves Mitch Brown. He will figure prominently mark my words.

I hope you are correct Balmain Bug as I thought his form last year warranted first go at full back. McKinnon to me is a shadow of the former player he use to be. Age and doggy hamstrings are his main problems.

I would also prefer Danielle on the wing ahead of Utai. Danielle scored 4 tries against the Warriors last year and his defence improved. Has more pace than Utai.

Couldn't agree more. Daniela is a safe player who will get the job done & try his best.
He has it all over Utai and I can't understand choosing MT over Geoff.
Horrible times.

He does love Brown he tried to get him in 07 but Cronulla beat us to him with a 2 year contract h emust figure somewhere either wing or if Mackinnon does not improve at fullback . I brought up on another thread that we could play Moltzen at hooker in attack and rest Farahs groin . In defense I would bring lawrence into ruck Brown into centres and Moltzen at wing as he is good under high ball Its complicated but could work . Moltzen could be dangerous sniping out of dummy half and has combination with Benji already there Probably get smashed for this just an idea

He will be back I reckon - his form seemed a little down in the trials, thats all.

The guy has honestly not put a foot wrong in FG last year in either wing or fb position.

He makes good metres from dummy half and has a habbit of getting a quick play the ball after tackled.

I would pick him in front of Utai and McKinnon no worries.

These thread titles are funny... I think the problem for Mitch is he has done very little at all!!!

Whats he achieved?
How many Tries has he scored?

Judging by his useage last year, he is only a backup for NRL and doesnt feature in Sheens prefered backline...

I only see him as a player who is at State Cup Level...

He lacks ability in my opinion, sure he's safe but doesn't offer a whole lot in attack.

So do you want to keep MacKinnon at full back what would be your plan of attack Watto
