Must be one of, if not the most penalised player in the NRL. Just let go when the refs are screaming held.. Maybe he's trying to slow down the play, which is fine but he always takes it that one step too far. Refs are onto him too imo, he always gets pulled up for that kind of thing, even in situations where others would get away with it.
When you make that many tackles and hold that many players down - you give away penalties ( he probably concedes 1 or 2 per game) for holding down. If he doesn't the other side get a big roll on and score a couple of tries. It is a shame that other players are not as adept at slowing the play down as Taylor is.

I believe we are a much better football team with him in it than out of it.

Gotta agree and half the time he does it when they don't even have a good roll on.

I'd take any of those players over MCK. His talent doesn't make up for his brain farts.

I reckon he gets spotted sometimes... Attacking players hold onto him. Coaches are aware, opposition players, ref's... It happens

Gibbs used to do it as well. Rather give up a penalty to set the retreating line than watch them swan through for a try.

2 years ago when he first joined, ET was a messiah on the forum. Now he’s a punching bag.

Think it would be hard for anyone to think straight with the amount of work he gets through. Our brains all go a little mental after a lot of exercise. I get a little woozy everytime i do the bayrun.
