    He is tough and has a big heart but that is where it ends for Aitken in the forwards, Besides, we are talking about making him an edge forward, the one area we are probably overstocked. We will have to turn one of our edge forwards into a middle forward. Centre or nothing for mine.

    I was pretty impressed with Aitken when he came back from injury and scored two tries. I like the idea of a bullocking centre and an elusive centre
    like say Cooper and Gasnier or Beattie and Coyne. Aitken and Mann/Lomax may be the way to go as I think Lafai is a spent force apart from his defence and passing.

    2010 questions the defence out wide with Aitken, Nene and co.. "...how many tries were scored from rushing up in defence.."

    Answer: Way, way, way too many.

    IMO our defence out wide (or should I say lack of defence) along with our speed contributed massively to our demise in 2017.

    Hunt and Graham won't help at all if these areas are not addressed

    In Aitken's first year in firsts I thought great, here's a Shaun Timmin's clone, tough, reliable, possible future leadership group qualities and maybe even future backrower. Then he started showing his weaknesses in defence. Sure he can tackle but only if he's in the right place, which seems to be beyond him at times, leaving those around him floundering. He can train the house down all he wants but he has to fix his defence if he's to hold a spot next year. A bit injury prone too.
    Oh, and Strike player off the bench ? No, not his role, not his style - speed and skill deficiencies and all. Leave that to someone else. I'm hoping Leilua has a massive year.

    Agreed.
    Very annoying how much development "space" and time he seems have. This is by both Dragons coaching and alot of our supporters.
    I have nothing against him and I truly hope he reaches his potential, but personally I've seen enough

    I hope your right.
    I just can't see it at all.
    Too one dimentianal and not big enough to move in the forwards. I think he may be stuck in the middle.

    Yes they did.
    But unfortunately Mitch wasn't allowed to play his own game.
    Thanks Mary..Another one bites the dust..

    You're right but in the wrong way: it shows McGregor persists too long with players of limited ability.

    Rein was named ISP player of the year. He'll be playing 1st grade next year under Brennan.

    Hope you're right & next season Rein and Aitkin finally stop being one of those "could be, should be, might be" players.
