People have short memories. I know many people are giving Monaghan a rap for his form this year and some even suggested he should be the Origin half. :lol2: There is also criticism of Orford, suggesting he is not worth the cash, offers little and maybe we should send him to Warrington and keep Monas. My call is that people have short memories. Two years ago Monaghan was Captain Concentric Circles and went missing and stuffed up half a season for us. He is now playing a combination of hooker, half and five-eighth. Last night he fell off a few tackles poorly, he gave a couple of Westmead specials (Hospital passes) plus a couple of poor balls that put us under pressure, including at players heads. Sure he did some good things - a try assist and some good long kicks but some are getting their maroon and white glasses frosted! My contention is that Monas is not a genuine hooker (Ballin is and where is he?) and that he does not complement Orford's play. We need a five eighth for Orford to really shine but I don't think he is playing as badly as some suggest. I would take him over Monas anytime.
