Ever heard of mental fatigue?
Yes reading you monotonous bagging of a few players gives me that LOL
But your serious right?...get vastly different responses OR you dont say anything much when its one of "your boys"
Don't buy it for a minute MOOT(namechange suggestion this btw)he doesnt look to have the skills, BBO would kill him as a half i reckon and he has only played what 80 minutes of FG total?

After that game I think the Averillo halfback experiment is almost over, if not already. I'd be tempted to give BBO a go now.
Yeah Joey quite rightly pointed out on a number of occasions how kicking doesn't come naturally to him and also said he didn't think Averello is a half.

He is not Jerome Hughes. He is “Jake I am not a half Averillo”. I would not be surprised if Gus “suggests” to Dumaertt to play BBO at 7 next week with The Prince @ 6.
I honestly have no idea lol, BUT the way Odo runs with the ball carries it with two hands goes to the line, he jist looks better than Averillo with ball in hand. He looks dangerous.

Avo looks like an out an out runner of the ball. Sure he'll create a try now and then but he doesn't look much like ball player to me. Not saying he can't develop that though, also it's only a small sample size for Odo.

BBO is more skilled as half, what is your point?

BBO is already displaying more instinct, so swap him out and Jake to 14 or left right out? OR like some think give him a go at FB(though personally i think he will struggle at least initially)as we're cooked it maybe doesnt matter much? idk i said it in another thread what is best for the team re where to play him? to me it is not in the halves...Lewis looks better and thats saying something, i think he even ran more too today?

We're fucked either way, the system is the issue and will continue to be until we recruit players that can play the required roles.

Has anyone watched BBO played half lower grades how'd he go?
