How good do you expect a backup to be?
There is a reason he was a punted off to Salford, he's bog average which is how Bea Arthur likes his dummy halves. A plodder who leads the line speed is all he wants and he wonders why attack has been shitty for most for the time he's coached here.
You obviously haven't watched too many Eels games then mate. His defense obviously went up to crap in the last half. But to say he'd be the worst player you've watched.......Maybe people just disagree with your assessment and don't favour hyperbole.
Except on our forum would you see any poster say they're worse off for letting a player go?
...letting Kelepi Tanginoa will bite us on the backside one day
Never any reasoning with you, you have all the answers, clap clap clap!!
Lussick is still shit even as a back up!!!!
Check the comments on this tweet.
Hopefully his defense is sorted and that’s the last of this conversation. But not only was his defense below par, but he rarely created anything for fergo and barely passed it to him. He had one very average season
Damn must be in some fine form.
French belongs in the NRL but I don't think at Parra.
He wouldn't want to play for a coach who is only interested in defense.
I could see him staring at Canberra, Rooster or the Storm. If he was with the storm I think he would play origin.
Be honest now. Have you seen him play since he left? ESL seems a pretty good fit for blokes who are too good for reggies, but not good enough to hold down a top 17 in the NRL.
I watched about 20 minutes of a game a few weeks ago. I'll look at some highlights now. Bevan was always good enough except he really went backwards in that 2018 season that Brad Arthur botched so badly.
I’ve noticed that French often wears 6 but plays fullback. Why? Is his defence still shit?
I think they see him as a libero. He has to be attacking in the middle like a fullback. There is no way you would have him playing a number 6 role in attack and who cares where they defend with him.
I would have him and Gutherson playing the same role in attack and have one less centre as centres hardly do anything in attack these days.
I think he would thrive under the 6 again rule.
Dont they get a number for the entire season in ESL? ... i assume someone else was initially planned as fullback, and french considered a half and that didnt work out
So one side of the field you will have one less player? Or do you mean one of them will actually slot in at where the centre would be randomly? In which case one of them just plays centre.
And then who does the 2nd ruck back from a kick when the centre is not there?
And who defends where the centre defends? Guth? Cos it wont be french.
3 tries and a few assists, pretty good game from French but geez some pretty ordinary defense from both sides
Damn French is on fire over there
Super League is like a Gundigai maiden compared to the NRL which a a group 1 @ Flemington.
