    Look, we all know he was poor today

    Have already read the posts about how he is **** and should be punted from the club etc

    The kid is 20 with a dozen or so matches under his belt. To write him off as an NRL standard player at this point is ridiculous. Think back to what was being said about Matai, T Rex and Glenn Stewart at the same point of their careers

    The bloke does have some natural ability, but needs some work and hopefully we don't have to use him again this year

    Fair enough. He tried his heart out as did all the players. That's all we can expect.

    Agreed but I hope he's not required for the finals. He needs a whole season to work some things out.

    yeah, he had a poor game, but i have seen him play some good games. I think he will grow as a player, he has strong potential. We will most likely need him as a spare winger/fullback with hoppa gone.

      I'd prefer Whare to be honest.

      What game was it that Lyon chipped and he won the game for us?

      Oldy has talent.

      I thought he was crap, but I don't he is crap as such. I just think he is not up to it just yet. Will be in the future I think.

      Im not saying he will not be a good player one day but atm his defense is not up to FG standard. I also prefer Whare for now.

      Scored a decent try. Everyone's able to have one or two bad games a season. He won us that Sharks game earlier this year.

      That being said, Whare again looked good every time he got the ball. If Wolf is injured to start the season, hopefully Whare gets a run.

      He makes poor decisions if he cleans that up he may be better

      Is Whare a quick guy? That's one thing Oldfield really brings to the team.

      At this point (and I thought I'd never say this given he had the turning circle of a road train) T-Rex is a far better option on the wing than Oldfield.

      I dunno, @[God]. Oldy has pace and I think tonight was an off game for him.

      Big deal he had a **** game. Big future for him he's showed he's a quality winger in the past. As kiwi said, Matai used to cop it hard on most forums and now look at him. Hes easily in the top 3 centres in the world.

      he is 20 and only a handful of games. He is also in and out of the team so that wouldn't be great for the confidence. Will go much better in 2012.

      He will be a good player, takes time to find your feet in first grade.

      Yeah I think so too. Looking forward to big things from him next year.

        Unless you're Hoppa, Foran, Lussick, Mauro, Buhrer :p

        Nah, I do agree with you on this mate.
