he's our leader for FFS. either you got it or you dont. we love robbie man, but i question whether he is the smartest player. i think our flaws are in defence, and lawrence as you saw tonight apart from a few discretions was up in manlys face. farah is good, we love him, but farah made ennis look good tonight. a leader should set examples, don't you think? Have i missed something? thats why they make the big bucks. All i want is 80 mins. How many years does it take to learn that?

Yes i agree, Farah has struggled ever since he was dropped from origin.I do not believe he is a good captain and i believe he isnt smart enough to have the role he has in our side.
but how dare i have a go at Farah. I would go as far to say he needs a change in clubs for his career , he is stale and he always takes the same wrong options .

Yeah like when he put that great little kick that led to Reddy's try? or maybe when he fed Benji that great ball that led to Blairs try?....terrible options both.

Giving Chris the captaincy is the last thing he needs at the moment. He is still lacking confidence and timing from his long layoffs and is too young still. If Rob isnt captain than the obvious choice is Benj....

then give benji a shot. but that wont happen because farah only signed if he is captain, correct me if im wrong. its just that i think that the smartest player should be captain. does anyone else agree that lawrences timing was off tonight against manly? Yes he made some errors but what about the silencing of Lyon tonight?

The way i see it, why burden Marshall with extra responsibility? just let him play his natural game without the weight of the team on his shoulders. I think Lawrence is an awesome captain in the making, but wether he's ready yet, who knows? The only other players i see as Captain material are Rhino and maybe Galloway. Fulton maybe? at the end of the day we can go back and forth all we want on this, but the reality is Farah will be captain for as long as he's a Tiger IMO. I can't see him relinquishing the Captaincy, and Sheens sure as hell isn't going to take it off him

My only issue with Robbie is his last tackle options or his 3rd tackle options........ I wish he would just stop putting in the "miracle" kick or push the pass when he should just settle down and apply pressure.

Robbie is a fanastic player. I'm glad he's in our colours and I never want to lose hime. He is courageous and a genuine star of the game. But, I watched him closely last week and again last night and he doesn't seem to be able to stretch out, particularly with his darts from dummy half. He is passing a lot more and getting the ball to the likes of Benji etc. But, Robbie is a terrific attacking runner too. Where is that at the moment? He sure deosn't look himself. I hope (strangely) that it's a physical thing, not a motivation one.

Farah has a cronic problem with the last tackle option ...this has to be rectified and should of been fix in the off season by the coach.

Get off his back, he missed a tackle & i dont think his groin is 100% right but give the man a break. We played bad for 20mins & get beat by four we will come good.

I agree with this in that his options seem to poor at crucial times. Still he wasn't that bad and the miss on Williams is a tough call.

I think he just needs to take the right options all the time. Let Benji make the big plays not Robbie. Of course if it is there he should go for it.

The alternative view is that he simply is not the same player that he was when he started in first grade and will never be that player again.
