Question 1 ; If not Ben Hunt, which other player from the last 6 years, in the same StGI teams, same coaches, same squads that Hunt had would have given us a substantially better outcome ? It's a team sport, stop trying to scapegoat individual players for our woes.
Question 2 ; Who, from available recruits / juniors are you replacing him with ?
I agree that he is a good player. But your answer is in your response, it is a team sport and as far as a team general goes, he is among the worst playmakers. He over calls everyone else on the team and touches the ball way too often

He has been charged with a Grade Two reckless high tackle offence, which will see him suspended for four matches with an early guilty plea or five matches if he unsuccessfully contests the charge at the judiciary.
NEVER IN DOUBT!
Yep you were right this time
I still believe the dramatics of it all and the situation aided in the minds of the MRC NRL and they had to follow through with a big penalty
I mean it is not as if external influences have done something like that before to persuade their decision
I ask you this as you thought it was worst ever
Why did he not get Grade 3 or intentional as you indicated it was
Food for thought

Hunt sucking a chunk of our cap has prevented us pursuing other options for questions 1 and 2 so yeah I can’t tell you.

My turn to ask you a question.
Are you happy with how Hunt has performed as halfback and captain?
If your answer is yes then there’s no real point me carrying on this discussion.

I’m sure I’ve missed some. I even left out JDB.

Great, you've typed out a list of other halves. Now take them out of their Top 8 teams and away from their good coaches and stick them in this team (for example) with Mary or Hook coaching -

Sloan
Matt Feagai
Max Feagai
Lomax
Moga
Take your pick - Amone, Sullivan, Cory Norman, Mbye.
?????? - your man at 6 or 7.

FMolo
Mbye
Lawrie
BMM
Bird
JDB

Liddle
T Couchman
J Kerr
Jaiyden Hunt

Take your time............

I understood the assignment perfectly

Every player I named would improve that team by replacing Hunt. He lacks fundamental qualities that are required in a halfback.

No need to be a dick mate. It’s ok to not have the same opinion.

In brighter news, Jake Turbo makes Lawrie look like a star
Lawrie would have a case as to why he is not in SOO, with the stats Turbo put out he would be a straight up shoe in. We play Manly soon enough , I'd be interested to see the stats between the both of them.

Sometimes by not watching the mens games, you can just check the score after the game and if NSW wins, you can watch the highlights (or a shortened replay) and if they lose, then you don't bother.
Unfortunately DD I'm starting to do this with the Dragons. I haven't watched the full games or the highlights from the Cowboys, Roosters or Bulldogs games. I've taken to turning off at half time or earlier - irrespective of how they are playing. I need to do it for my health, sanity and family.

I'm hating saying this but Moses is way more suited to Origin than Hynes. If they persevere with Luia then he needs a half who can defend...any ideas. Maybe Burton?
Mitchell for Joseph Sua'ali'i but is he fit enough and will he be lazy?
The best back in SOO1 was Lomax and maybe he should be centre.

No you obviously didn't.

No, what he has lacked is the support and co-operation that having quality players around him would provide as well as a decent coach. If he lacked the qualities blah blah blah he'd be in reserves or gone - not be picked every week for the last 6 years at......halfback. Note, he didn't pick himself.

Who's being a dick ? You're the one who stooped to name calling already. And where did I have a go at you for having an opinion - I f**king didn't you sook. Obviously I don't agree with you, so I questioned your opinion not you personally for having that opinion - learn the difference then you'll be less likely to get all dramatic.
