Why are we the fans hitting the panic button so soon and death riding certain players, our team and our fans got caught up in the hype last Monday night and it took a very underated Bulldogs outfit to beat us.
Frank Pritchard will always make a huge effort against us as he seems to have taken an exception to the club for overlooking him in the Wests Harold Matthews or SG Ball sides OR WHATEVER IT WAS but then again i was a little disappointed with Steve Turner getting such an easy try.
Saturday night we are up against the Warriors at Leichhardt, in the corresponding match last year our boys put 50 points on the sheep shaggers and some of our most maligned players shone through, Mitch Brown was solid and Geoff Daniela bagged 3 tries.
Here's the chance for Wade McKinnon to show the Warriors what they are missing, OMG!.

Brown at FB = one solid reason why the Tigers made it to one game shy of the GF.

Farah is a World Class Player and those type of players know when they shouldnt play... What Robbie offers at 70%, is more than others at 100%. My question for you is do we have another option to replace Robbie, but even if we did, would that option be capable to do those things you felt Robbie was lacking on Monday???

I was very frustrated with his performance on Monday, but I also know Robbie doesnt play too many bad games on the trot.... I'd give him a few more runs to come good, as I'm certain he has earned that luxury to find his best form!!!
Do have 2 options 1 is unavailable now 1st would of been Fulton to dummy half see my point 2nd is Moltzen Dummy half and he then defends on wing in defence Lawrence comes into middle and Brown in the centres Would give us zing out of dummy half and has combinations with Marshall already the last thing any of us want is Farah out long term due to groin issue
I would much rather Ayshford defending in the middle, is it just me but everytime the ball goes ayshfords way i feel safe (in defence) he is so fucking reliable!

maybe mckinnon will come good in time. im just worried about his body. actually not worried - i still sleep peacefully - just wish he was a bit younger, but time will tell. hodgson is still playing - they must be around the same age.

Whats wrong with Spartan's avatar? lol I missed it....

MITCH BROWN is OKAY, better than WADE MCKINNON
However I believe, despite all the talk of "HE ISN'T A FULLBACK" or "HE SHOULD BE HALFBACK"
MOLTZEN would be the goods if given the time to settle in & make the role his own.

Which brings me to my next point, GEOFF DANIELA is better than UTAI, he would be my first choice winger for the time being.
MITCH BROWN to bench utility until BEAU RYAN is recovered.

Brown actually is a fullback, making him a better option than Moltzen, and is probably a better fullback than McKinnon. I'd get him back in there, he doesn't do anything wrong, and we have enough game breakers in the side as it is.

I wonder with money we will have with Cayless and TNT not playing we may look at a mid season signing for fullback . I can't think of anyone or heard of anyone but who knows I wonder if we made a play at Tahu Doubt it but made me think anyway

I really don't get the bagging of McKinnon. He is clearly the best fullback we have.

Of course, he's lost pace since his injury, and he's still not match fit but once he settles in he'll be fine. He's relatively safe under the high ball, his kick returns are good, and he's ALWAYS sniffing around looking for an offload, which none of our other options at fullback do.

Brown is also a good option for fullback, but IMO he should be on the right wing. He is a better player than both Utai and Ryan.

As for Moltzen, he's a terrible fullback who walks the ball back from kick returns. He shouldn't even be mentioned as an option.

100% correct HT - but I'll personally still not write off Moltzen to develop into a very good fullback in time!!!

A bit of bravado wouldn't go astray - but aside from that - he has some excellent attributes for the position (i.e. speed, size, ball skills etc!!

Perhaps the reason why he has bulked up? Just a theory...

For mine the main job of a fullback is kick returns, defensive positioning and ability under the high ball. IMO McKinnon is excellent at all of these, and Moltzen is terrible at all of them.

Moltzen's main attributes mean he should be in the centres, or at halfback.

But who knows, if he works on his weaknesses he may become a good fullback, but it would be alot of work. It is a tough position to play and I don't think you can just throw anyone in there.

Moltzen at centre is laughable!!!!!!!!!

As I stated - at fullback he is a work in progress at best!!!!

If he had some bigger balls - he could be very good there!!! But I agree - it will take ALOT of work!!!

totally agree HT one major attribute a full back needs is being a great communicator and a voice like a fog horn Screaming at players defensively to move or be in position
