    Especially on the 4th or 5th tackle.

    Some people will understand, some won't.

    I know which category you fall under.

    I knew he'd be a good buy, and he played very well.

    But.. I see some obvious McGregor-isms already creeping in... the useless over-coached crab sideways upon picking up the ball for examply. He needs a different coach asap before we screw him completely

    Just want to give some credit to this kid . He is a major reason why our forwards our doing far better this year . His passing from dummy half is first class . He can ball play at the line very well . He has a good short kicking game . Is a genuine 80 min player. And most of all makes very good decisions based on what is in front of him . Young Robson is a very good young hooker but he will be doing very very well to displace McInnes any time in the next few years . In fact McInnes could well be one of the best 9's in the game in the not to far distant future .

    McInnes is giving good service from dummy half which is why our forwards are getting a good roll on. With this better service we are seeing an improved forward pack running with more confidence. Packer is now showing why we signed him. Our biggest problem is consistency, if our forwards turn up every week to play tough we will definitely make the 8. McInnes also shows more creativity than Rein which will develop further if our forwards can keep making good yards every game.

    McInness is a good footballer. Played well again last night. If I was to be critical at all I would have liked to have seen a couple of dummy half runs towards the end of each half.

    He's been a good buy and it's good to see some proper service from dummy half with good ball passing basics unlike previous years...

    This guy is a quiet achiever

    Does all the little things right

    Good service from dummy half

    Can play 80 minutes

    Good short kicking game

    Has presence of mind to play what is in front of him

    He is clearly an upgrade on Mitch Rein

    I've been enjoying what he brings to the team so far. A hooker who can actually pass a football and provide decent service out of dummy half.

    It truly is the little things in life.

    I'm 68 and I would be a big improvement on Rein.

    A great buy! His service from dummy half is great and his defence is also great. Finally we have a good 9.

    Why? Seemed like almost every time we got a quick play the ball, we had a forward ready to run a hard line on an angle back in behind the ruck.

    He continues to be a very tenacious hard working hooker, put a clever little kick through for our first try..yep its early days but so far our new recruits are really gelling and making noticeable contributions

    I liked Mitch Rein we he started for the Red V but he never took his game to the next level and I think he actually got worse over the past 2 seasons. A lot of forward passes and knock ons from dummy half, spreading the ball the wrong way and taking a step or 2 before passing. McInnes seems to be a much better dummy half so far heres hoping he can go to the next level as combinations gel
