Obviously Not watching the same game as me , Storm were Robbed Twice with 2 terrible decisionsIf you listeded to the radio commentary Melbourne were playing the ref as well and he cost them 18 points to Penrith with diablocal decisions. Orford did well and played okay.
Ummm Didnt Mona's get Man of the Match against the Roosters ??im with Mata, without opening up an old argument, behind our forward pack Orford would be awesome. Forget the games we have lost, if you just look at the games we won Monaghs still looked pretty pedestrian behind a pack that completely dominated. ie v dogs / roosters etc
Fluff, 100% correct re Orford and the melbourne backs, there is no question that they are pretty awesome.with the backs melbourne have monahan would be awsome. No doubt about it. they actually run at holes as opposed to ours who run at the defender. Orford also has the luxury of having a genuine 5/8th outside him, monas unfortunatly has not.
Honestly there is no way you can justify his 450K+ price tag. Thats the money you pay for origin/internationals - orford isnt deemed fit to play either, at 27.
And dont bring out the blaming the ref crap - if he was good enough to make an impact and turn the game against penrith like another hlaf back who is a much better leader the he would have.
Please explain to me why the excuses out up for orford are the same ones that were shot down for monas.
Give it up - he is obviously not the messiah
and you pay over the odds you get a Kimmorley from the Northern Eagles saga.In the last week I've read several articles how REAL half backs were slighted by the selection of Barrett at Number 7.
Orford's name was mentioned in every list. Funnily, I didn't see Monaghan mentioned once.
At $240k he's the cheapest half back in the comp. Go figure :roll:
