    Maloneys one of those halves that just turned up with a well developed league brain and the ability to execute. He's gone to another level now since he left us. I don't think he really needs a good coach and I'm not sure thats entirely what Ata needs either.

    The one thing a player could ever want from a coach is a chance. Stuart has dropped Blake Austin this week for Ata which to me is a huge vote of confidence. Some might say Stuart is a crap halves coach and that might be the case but so far he rates Ata just like we do.

    So much for his Raiders debut, one good dummy half run then gets his head between a Greg Eastwood and the pie cart.... goodnight Ata.

    He was dreadful in defence prior to that too. Jersey grabbing all over the place. Looked completely disinterested

    He is a crap halves coach. And I dunno if he rates Ata, or just that he hasn't made it work with Austin at all and went to his only other option.

    If Ata looked disinterested in his first hitout, and I have no reason to disbelieve Iafeta, that's pretty woeful.

    I'm through with Ata to be honest. He started out promising but after watching him with the Raiders, Tonga and us - I reckon he's bog average.

    I kinda feel like I keep making excuses for his inability to live up to this GREAT wrap he's been given. First it was Cappy...then Kearney...and now it's Stuart fault he's not playing well. His new coach of 2 months!

    I wish him all the best because he's an ex-Warrior but he's the Raiders problem now.
