And if that’s the case, can I please suggest we grab either (or both) of these two:
???? I always knew he would be back!
Korbut Sims Mates Rates.
What about Chase?
Or was there always only one?
I’m unsure as to how many times I’ve stated the following:
1. not once have I indicated that I would have “preferred” Rein over McInnes,
2. by all means have Rein replaced but only for a significant upgrade.
McInnes doesn’t represent this (in my opinion).
But go ahead, let facts get in the way of a good yarn.
I’m glad to know you think Millward’s “depth signings” (which, admittedly, are necessary for contingency) mean he is doing “a fantastic job”,
However, if you examine each one throughly enough, reality suggests something a whole lot different:
1. Latimore: who, despite going through more clubs than Tiger Woods without dominating ANY of them.
McGregor was always going tp play him this year.
2. Nicholls: a 29-year old NRL “virgin” recruited as back up to Hunt,
We all saw last Thursday why it’s taken a decade for him to finally land a gig.
3. Milne: another reserve grade standard player ‘headhunted’ by Millward; the nicest thing you could say is that he had a forgettable stint at SGI,
Considering Milne has failed to play first grade at the Tigers due to some publicised indiscretions, it makes you wonder what qualities piqued Millward’s interest.
4 and 5: Fai Fai Loa/Quinlan; I liked both these two, thought they had some potential, but were let down badly by the ‘coach’.
6. McCrone: when a bloke cannot command a start at the Raiders, and Ricky Stuart doesn’t want you, I would’ve thought this would’ve set of warning bells screaming, “STAY CLEAR”.
Not so with Mr Millward,
To simply accept the above players as “depth” breeds mediocrity. Saints can and should do so much better with recruitment (and retention),
You’re welcome, thank you.
^ felt this needed more quotation marks to get the point across.
Is five too big a number for you?
It was a rather large, verbose post after all.
While I enjoy your posts and humour Jimmy I stopped reading this particular post at "McInnes doesn't represent an upgrade on Rein" I couldn't read the screen through the tears of laughter.
Thats a good one.
I counted eight.. but we can call it “five” if you like..
I call that the Waldron system.
I’m unsure why you felt the need to tell me this.
Anyway, I’m glad you got a laugh, You provided the same emotion with your earlier mistruth.
Hmm, let’s see. Perhaps I miscounted?
1. “preferred” - this was YOUR word (not mine) and merely highlights a quotation.
2, “fantastic job” - as above,
3. “virgin” - well, isn’t Nicholls one prior to last Thursday’s game?
(Seems reasonable to me)
4. “stay clear” - wouldn’t you do the same if you knew how out-of-his-depth McCrone turned out during 2016?
5. “depth” - refer to points one and two.
Have I missed any? Nope, I don’t believe so.
Eh? I wasn’t aware that ‘preferred’ was my word..
But.. whilst we’re counting..
- “depth signing”
I need both a computer and (seemingly) a calculator.
Well done, you win.
He runs rings around our plodders and soft running wingers.
Nene isn’t a wingers arse compared to Morris.
Everything you say is so true.
Our depth players are grade 3.
Hardly any are first grade standard.
The skills and toughness bus missed our stop.
There are exceptions to every rule.
Agree BGBoots - farrrrrrrr toooooo much . However if it had been only for the rest of this season , well that imo would had be a good buy . Why , Morris would had put some much needed steel in the backline defence and by gad dont we need it . Plus he can still bulldoze his way to the try line and over it .
Would had been worth something , more so come semi final time as the Dragons sadly lack big match experience in the backs and that is something that he has in spades .
Separate names with a comma.
