    All players go thru ups and downs.
    I prefer to support them thru their mistakes.
    Let’s see how hunt goes this wed night.

    I think he will show good form

    I did just that all through 2016 and the start of 2017 and Hunt did have the occasional good game but the rest were below average where he went missing for large parts of each game. His performances in game 1 and 2 and his benching for game 3 show that he's still struggling and that he's being carried by Widdop and the Dragons gun forward pack.
    I'm hoping he comes off the bench and does something great tonight but I won't be holding my breath waiting for it. To be honest if he can get through whatever game time he sees with no errors I will be happy.

    A lot of support needed for a bloke coining 1.2 million per year

    He went well.
    Best number 9 you have.
    Not the best number 7.

    He's not the best 9, he's the best bench utility

    NSW would've been rubbing their hands together if Hunt played 80 in the middle of the ruck

    @ouryears 0 runs, 0 metres

    not bad for a million dollars a season ball-running halfback

    I actually feel sorry for Ben Hunt. He was trying his guts out against the Tigers but had yet another howler.

    Unfortunately for Ben, he's still showing some the same issues that plagued his performances with us, which is why (despite Nikorima's shortcomings) he was rightly never offered a Saint's salary by Brisbane. Fragile confidence and predictably fading in and out of games/series of games. Risky traits for a 7 and puts too big a gap between his best and worst. When he finds himself in the shit like this, he really needs to just strip things back, start running the footy (his biggest strength) and go from there. He's certainly capable of turning it around this year, but after watching this same pattern during his time with us, it's looking unlikely.

    The lack of confidence issue is kind of startling in an Origin player

    Looks like Saints have killed his origin career. Oh well at least he is rich.

    Feldt killed his Origin career.

    Y'all are just now feeling the effects.

    He might find his best position is hooker by the end of his career. It's a shame because that running game was so great.

    I don't buy this best position is hooker rubbish, he had a few good games for us when we were on top during those games and it allowed him to run the ball with freedom and he's a great ball runner at the worst of times

    Any team with a formidable pack seeing Ben Hunt as the hooker defending in the middle of the ruck would be rubbing their hands togethor

    I'm not sure if it's his best. But he would have less responsibilities there especially on the 5th tackle.

    Defense could go either way. I remember he won a game for us last year with his aggressive defense from hooker. I don't know if he could do it for a full 80.
