Voting for Round 22 open:
Brayden Williame - run down after being given a start by a front rower.
Deserves 3 points for being the most embarrassing backline footballer I have ever seen. And Twenty Bwarret gave him a new contract.
Hexy - DCE - JAKE. Lets face it, nobody in our team is that fast . even TT and DCE get run down.
He pulled up with a cramp.
Tom T got chased down by Beau Scott this year too
3 - Darcy. He was our best and by some considerable margin too.
2 - Will I Am. The guy is getting better every week and made some big plays tonight.
1 - Api. Despite the no look pass he did much more good stuff than dumb stuff. Which a few in our colours couldn't lay claim to tonight.
Yep cramp happens to every centre in the NRL when they get chased down by front rowers.
3 - Darcy
2 - Jake
1 - Wiliame
Darcy wasn't as good as in recent weeks, but was easily our best forward. Jake was good when out there and never gave up, and Wiliame played ok (and you could see him cramping up when he made that break).
Api is a good player but his dummy half passes are shocking sometimes. Ferris had a bad night. Brown is useless and even Tom struggled to get into the game. And playing one play maker makes it so much easier for the defence. We are definitely going to need a quality 5/8 for next year or we're going to struggle again.
He did his calf, that's why he couldn't run.
Anyone who saw Wiliame at the Nines knows he has more pace than what he showed. He did get ankle tapped as he got into the clear and you could see him stumble a bit, then he struggled to stride out and got caught. He then got up and seemed to be limping. Otherwise with no one in front of him he would most likely have scored, even with French chasing him.
Even for a kiwi !!!
2. Api (he gets criticised but he is a real tryer)
(I applaud the awarding of points to Myles for his performance)
Williame is average speed for a back & unsure of this "injury" or not....thing is....Wicks on that angle would catch 50% of NRL backs...only your genuine flyers like Roberts would leave him far behind...Williame was in the top few players on ground & like most...would have loved a meat pie at that stage....Scott Donald's legs we get the 2 points.....
I think WillyArmy was struggling with a leg injury during that run. If you can watch it again and look at his stride and let me know what you think.
My impression is that speed is not one of his problems.
I noticed his stride was off & seen him in the 9's look quicker...other factors like kind of stop - starting, can make it hard to find stride rhythm, plus like some horses I bet on - maybe not a heavy track runner...I do maintain...that Wicks would have nabbed plenty of backs in that exact scenario.
He's the fastest we got. Watch the rest of the game until that point.
He obviously hurt himself just as he broke into the clear, the entire run he was hampered. No injury and he scores that try.
