KK is a faster version of Morts
not a bad analogy but I think KK has much better vision then Mortz, It more like KK is a version of Mortz + a running game. KK biggest problem is he is selfish, if he worked on playing before the line more and used running game more selectively he would be more effective. Both though are useless organizers and would struggle without a genuine halfback because of glaring deficiencies in their passing and running games.
KK has a running game but it's very predictable. He can run the ball no doubt but throwing dummys every time you run the ball doesn't work because the defence then know you're going to do it every time. He comes across as a bit of a one trick pony to me.
I reckon Mortz has better vision - but an inability to do something with what he sees.
KK needs to ask his trainer to leave the blinkers off! All he sees is the channel to run at - and off he goes. If he loses a yard of pace his career is over.
this guy will flop , he is so over rated even when he did play for dogs this year they where crap.
He will spend more time in NSW cup again after all year.
Cheers for the info, Nostradamus.
no worries gronk anytime mate.
Was that meant to be trolling?
They banned him from the Sharks forum. He's a merkin.
Sadly thats the best he can do, Smartman>>>>>>>>>>>>> Broncos2110 :lol:
Will definitely be a flop, unfortunately.
He was one of my favourites and actually still is. I wish him the very best because he's a fantastic bloke with a lot of talent. But he just can't handle any sort of pressure what so ever. His decision making is poor, his kicking game is so inconsistent and he goes missing or crumbles when the going gets tough.
When things are going well I have no doubt he will shine. He's pretty fast, has a mean step, some great ball skills and a pretty nice passing game. But I can't see him doing anything much to be honest. You will be far better off with another 5/8th like Humble.
Things will be going good. So it's nice to know he will shine. It's very exciting times for the Eels.
I think he'll go well, his last couple of years at the Dogs were pretty ordinary, but he wasn't flying solo there.
When he's on he can do anything, which unfortunately makes it sooo frustrating when he isn't. I think a lot of his bad games over the last couple of years were caused by him being down on confidence and trying too hard in a struggling team.
Best of luck to him.
People are too quick to believe that he won't be successful here. He'll be a good signing if he works up good combinations with Hayne/Sandow/Tonga, etc.
My source told me that he will definitely be the best 5/8 we have ever had. ;-).
The thing is, he was never able to nail any decent combination with anyone except his centre, Josh Morris. He put him away for many many breaks and tries. But he was never able to gel with any half back whether it was Brent Sherwin, Daniel Holdsworth or anyone else (don't blame him with the latter...) or fullback or hooker.
Does that mean he'll get a landscaping job when he retires?
Well, Daniel Mortimer was a first-grader - but he looked better in black and white than in colour.
Well that would be the obvious thing to do now that they`ve signed Tom Humble to play five-eight.
That`s exactly what I`m thinking. I don`t know enough about Roberts to have a definite opinion of him - but next year looks about ten thousand trillion and-a-half times better than this year was.
