    I've seen enough to know Critter isn't up to playing 1 yet so let's move on. We either give Staines a taste or start settling into our best backline which is. Staines/Critter on the right and To'o/Burton on the left. At this point I'd even play May at 1 over Critter

    Sorry this is rubbish. You are another of the anti-Crichton brigade. He made two error but even the commentators said he was playing well especially in the second half. Some are never satisfied even if we are winning.

    Not anti anything. I wanted him to get his shot and he's flopped. His "effort" on the Croker no try was f**king disgusting. Just casually jogging along while he let's him get to the ball

    Crighton cops a lot
    But the fitness levels for a fullback are way above any other position just check the raiders fill in fullback he was so fatigued he was dry reaching We only have a few weeks and edwards is back .Keep him there he will improve as his fitness levels and awareness rise.And if needed down the track we will be prepared

    No Changes required.

    Critta will be better for the run, he’ll continue to work on his short comings.

    People calling for changes after another dominant performance, once again no changes will be made as long as we aren’t being troubled by the opposition.

    Can understand why people want Critta moved tbh. I think his second half saved him (for me) but his positioning & defensive effort in the first half was horrendous.

    It was lack of effort though. I can take his skills not being ready yet but never effort.

    no it wasn’t lack of effort, I can’t agree with that at all. It was just hesitation and being out of position, he’s definitely trying hard.

    i don’t think it’s effort, I think it’s indecision, not sure where he should be

    Young fullbacks make errors especially when they aren’t overly familiar with the position, Edwards himself has gone through these periods. We haven’t lost a game, conceded five tries all year and the same people are here calling for people to be moved or dropped every week.

    No one gets by in this team not putting in. If the coaches thought he wasn’t putting in he’d be gone quickly.

    You’d expect our line speed, ruck dominance, discipline and kicking game will mean a huge amount of Broncos kicks under pressure inside the 30. There’s also an enormous gulf in class between the kicking games of DCE/Wighton/Williams/Hodgson and the Broncos halves. There’ll be much less pressure on Crichton and he should get some good opportunities returning the ball with a lot of room to hopefully get his confidence up.
