    Disagree all you want mate. No support for previous players. They're actually doing well. Marshall tick, Dugan tick, Packer (until injured) tick, As for Dufty? I think I outlined my problems with him earlier. I reserve judgement when we play the big guys. Fair?

    The only thing I can draw from your reply is defence. If that is the case then look at the stat on missed tackles for fullbacks and you will see Dufty is one of the best performers across the competition so far this year - misses less than 1 tackle per game(link below from Fox Sports lab). Beyond that it's clear you simply don't like him and will never support him. That's a shame as you are in the minority and won't get the enjoyment that plenty of others will.

    Where did I question your support of other players?

    I will also add that with Dufty's confidence growing, he is now starting to think and feel that he belongs in first grade.

    Dufty ran across field and then ran around Hodkinson, making Hodkinson look silly. He probably is the slowest halfback in the comp and was exposed by Dufty's lightening speed.

    Are you kidding.He got the ball flat footed with not much on & backed himself to go through the small gap.As for looking for an offload there was nobody in a position to give it to because they were all left behind.
    I don't know how old you are but would you also call former speedsters like slippery,corowa,ohffia?hanley, blake,renouf,blacklock,ettinghausen etc selfish because they had the confidence to back their speed against retreating defences.

    That early in the game? Lucky their defense was crap and that's before they all got injured. Whatever blows your hair back.

    I'll take 2.

    Same as the number of tries dufty scored on the weekend.

    This has certainly deteriorated into a strange thread. There'll always be a fair argument as to who's better value for a team, a nippy, exciting fullback who can sniff out a try from anywhere or a hard running, top class defender who can save a try, but most footy fans would still support whichever one they had in their team.

    Different players with different skill sets.
    Mc Fookknuckle couldn't work what position to play Dugan in let alone develop a game plan around him and no doubt not having a halves combination impeded that.
    Dufty has the advantage of a super halves pairing and he is prospering from that and now attack is our best friend whereas before our impotent attacks best friend was our defence.
    Loved Dugan's whole hearted goal line defence and love Dufty running through a hole so pro's & con's for both and some times it is the roster around you that dictates the style of play you get drawn into.
    Re passing or hogging the ball the great Reg Gasnier had scored a couple of tries 1 afternoon at Kogarah and after getting into a hole he found big Elton Rasmussen (no slouch for speed) along side him & Puff passed the ball to him and big Elton sped away and scored under the posts.
    That try secured Elton a well deserved Kangaroo tour spot and for his generosity Puff was told that if he ever passed the ball in that situation again he would find himself in reserve grade.
    Pro's and con's for most things in life.
