Discussion in 'Newcastle Knights' started by Woosh, Oct 5, 2017.
In fairness - Woosh is tackling the post by Slots in a thread titled Sione.... I understand 'I've heard this all before' but I just glide straight past and work on the axiom "Nothing to see here, move along" - it is less taxing that way ...unless your intent was just to find the right post to use this cool Jackie Chan meme
Personally, i dont think any of our backrowers have the equal skills nor footy brain of Buhrer. Size and speed is far less effective without the skill and brains to apply it correctly
Just look at the careers of Tony Williams or Dave Taylor
Guerra and Sione both better players
And at the end of the day that is the argument. I think they are better, you guys obviously disagree.
Our team is much better placed if I am right.
Those three aren't toilers.
The Australian team would be better placed if T-Rex and Dave Taylor were better players than Wade Graham and Matt Gillett. But they aren't, despite their wingspan.
Neither is Buhrer
It's the meme...and the amusement of putting Fat Pat and the word "dangerous" in the same sentence.
My point is we know exactly what Buhrer offers to our team.
We need Guerra and Sione to offer more than that if we are going to take a leap forward.
Sometimes these threads are very serious and demand consideration and other times they are so damn funny because of the seriousness, never dull.
No Fitzgibbon love here?
I reckon he's 18th man and pushing the likes of Jacob and Heighington
LMAO - great way to finish off my Friday
Sure his defense and his ability to get through gaps because of his strength was a massive plus but this guy's skill was out of the world a the time. Nothing to do with physical ability in my opinion.
I'm a bit afraid that the NRL will be turn into the NRL... Like a chess game with pure specimens being played by genius coaches. Only 1 in 10 plays being ad lib or a moment of genius. Probably still see some massive hits and some amazing runs, geniuses of the body but the geniuses of the mind will be gone.
Completely different games - there isn't as much scope for coaching strategy in our game. There is a lot we can learn from them, but a lot they could take from our game too, particularly in hurry up offence.
Buhrer was Manly's starting 2nd rower all season(replacing the injured Glenn Stewart) when they finished 2nd in 2014. He had a great season.
Anyway despite all the previous evidence it appears there is no convincing you that he is not just a Rory Kostjasyn clone. That's fine but I suspect Brown will give him a serious run this year and I hope he does.
Why did they let him go?
And I want him to succeed as much as anyone.
It’s a strange one. He’s had his share of injuries but the fans were pissed off when they got rid of him. Was seen by many as a future captain.
10 pages in and you still haven’t told me where you would play Sione?
What’s wrong darlin?
