    Do you have a source for this statistic? I've tried, but I simply cant find a stat anywhere that lists the games that Cronk has played without Smith? And I'm sure you wouldn't be making up things to fuel your random whinges about Storm...
    You might need this champ...

    2018 recruit Hunt discusses RLWC
    Thu 26th October, 01:00PM

    St George Illawarra 2018 recruit Ben Hunt recently chatted to Dragons TV about the upcoming 2017 Rugby League World Cup.

    Hunt - named as 19th man for the Kangaroos Test against England this Friday - discusses his selection in the squad and whether he thought his late-season shift to hooker for the Broncos helped his cause.

    Hunt's interviews with Broncos TV were always great. Hoping we continue that trend.

    Nice attempt to shift the goalposts. But...

    They are 2/7 when they make top 4.

    You need me to show you the maths again chum?

    Exactly.

    You defend my case very well, I owe you.

    You have just proven he is an average coach. 2/7 is exactly that, average.

    Now, no more myths of greatness!

    Cheers and Thank You.

    The problem here is Storm keep making the 4 and it's adversely effecting one of the stats. :cool:

    So the answer is yes? I need to do the maths for you?

    2/7 > 1/4

    Therefore by definition, better than average.

    Are you grade 2?

    If you make the top 4, average is 1 in 4, 2 from 8.

    So he is 2 from 7,
    YES....about damn average

    If you say he is GREAT, like some others on here , shall we say GREAT would be 5 from 7.

    Yes...he is AVERAGE.

    I AGREE.

    I know that you have several fights in your current incarnation, and that probably makes it diffficuly to keep track.

    This is what you said:

    After I pointed out your poor maths you moved the goalposts, but you were still wrong.

    I'm not going to debate with you about how great bellamy is, because logic and reason are wasted with you. But if you want to use maths to prove something you should double check your maths first. Average has a very specific meaning when working with numbers.

    At the very least, by the standards and measurement that you chose, he is better than average.

    Back on topic I am an unabashed fan of Hunt, even playing for the broncos. After seeing Ash Taylor sign for a mil per season I think its reasonable to say we haven’t paid too much for him.

    With the likely increase in the cap over the next 6 years, Hunt may end up being a bargain buy. I think Hunt is the most significant signing that we have made in the last 37 plus years. The first ingredient to winning a comp is having a top class halfback and we will finally have one next year.

    Looking at the whole Cronk/Pearce situation I can’t help but be very content that we have locked in Hunt. Imagine this place if we were debating whether to sign Cronk(while he was unsigned), Pearce or even looking at Keary again?
    Forward thinking, good fortune or just right place, right time it’s nice to have a settled halves pairing.
