    I agree, there are special cases like Cronk... but he is a different breed, no one comes close to his professionalism

    The Donkeys should never have gotten rid of Ben Hunt imo, they have never been consistent since he left

    Sounds to me like its a manager talking using fox sports as his tool to push up his price.
    I was a big big fan of lachie and still like him. Sure he has parts of his game to work on but i wont forget some of his games towards the end off last year and this year which we all enjoyed. I would be keeping him because he has heaps of improvement and potential in him. I luv his defence has the makings of a lock with some work if his not suited in the halves. That is still the question that needs to be answered. I dont care where he plays just want him in the blue and white.

    Bellamy asked 2 things of cooper cronk. Kick well and make your tackles. Lewis does both pretty well especially the defence. Hes not the reason we didnt win more games. Put some more strike players outside him and hel be pushing for origin.

    Yes, but he would still be an improvement on what the horseys have at the moment, which goes to show how much they are lacking in the halves.

    Confidence player. If his forwards fire and has time and space he plays better than any half in the game. Once the pressure is on though he crumbles... wish a team would just play him at hooker

    Maybe we should throw money at Melony seeing that we seem to have focused all our attention on all Penrith discards, We could end up "The Penrith Bulldogs " or "The Canterbury Bankstown Panthers "

    We need to keep Lewis, he's a massive player .
    No other player can cover a field like he does.
    People who want him gone are short sighted .

    You are correct, and its a shame you were not born in the generation to watch the likes of Stuart and Langer.

    There has been no HB close to Ricky Stuart when it came to a kicking game. He definitely had the best boot on him of all time.

    Langer was another great HB to watch. Was one little cheeky fucker, but he was brilliant.

    All the skilled and talented HB's are in Union now and as you mentioned todays HB's in the NRL and the junior systems focus on athletic ability and boring robotic tactics to suit boring systems in play

    Halves today are essentially game managers concentrating on completions. The great halves of the past always played with an element of risk and reward which made them dangerous and especially creative.

    Yep agree, the ability to read play and make split second decisions can’t really be taught, it can take 10-15 years to master the art of leading a team around the field at the highest level. It’s what made the likes of JT so great, he was always 2 steps ahead of the opposition and saw things that no one else on the field could.
