That was by far his best game (probably his only "good" game so far here) but I think Averillo has shown him up a bit in regards to how to play halfback and what Barrett wants (Averillo isn't even a halfback, he's a running five-eighth). He's on too much in the salary cap to not get another go so I'm sure he'll get another go eventually. Since Flanagan is only an "organiser" and is more suited to being a traditional halfback playstyle wise we can't even play him as a 6 (five-eighth) because he doesn't have a running game or creativity (won't offer anything). I think it's a little strange he's not getting a run in NSW cup, is he injured?

Nothing like Steve Mortimer, but hey human beings can adapt.

think they said he had a rib cartilage injury but he could have played with an injection so not sure why he isnt playing mounties, he might be named late once team list is culled to play mounties

could also be a reason why he didnt take it to line as much in later games?

Considering our whole team has had a 100 chances I suppose he deserves another go but I have zero faith in him. I’d like to see him and a few more that are contracted for next year moved on ASAP

He hasn’t taken the line on in his whole career and until he does his game won’t improve. He’s too one dimensional at the minute and without a running game to take pressure off himself he’s a sitting duck.

Way too much drama for a player of his level. Gets dropped @ roosters and there's massive fallout and he's gone within a year. Gets dropped with us and he cries and doesn't play reserve grade for weeks because he has a mysterious injury despite being named in the 21.

I hope we never see that fraud in our jersey ever again.

Typical coaches son, just there because of daddy. See it all the time in JRL.
Not only JRL but junior cricket as well. I remember a father umpiring from the end his son was bowling at. Took 70 wickets most seasons with over half of them LBW's.

When he went to grade with proper badged umpires the friendly decisions dried up. He had not learnt alternative ways of taking wickets and after 2 seasons where he never got promoted out of 5th grade he was never seen again.

Father ruined his career.

He doesn't "deserve" anything.
He needed to go back Mounties and find some form.

Instead, it seems to me that he's been sulking - I don't believe the rib cartilage story at all

You are spot on - out perform,out enthuse those in the position you want - hard to do if you don't play - but the bar is low - earn it!
