Hasn't Elgey been in first grade like 4 seasons?I agree Elgey is not a dominant half you can base a team around.
But.....I think its harsh to say we can't beat anyone while he is in there doing it solo.
Croker went down last week and he did enough. His cause was not helped in any way, shape or form when both centres went down as well as Api.
Take Keary, Mitchell, Manu and Friend away from Cronk and he would struggle.
Not saying Elgey is a superstar, but he has not been dealt a great hand...and is a $350k half, not a $1 million one.
I truly think if we did not have another horrendous injury toll, we win that game.
I just think he is a minor leaguer. I think if Croker is fit next week he's in. Elgey is just too passive IMHO - should have put Mittens over in a canter to make it 10-0.
I'm not concerned big picture about tonight. Better to lose it all in one game, than put in a massive effort and lose by one point on a referee blunder. We'll be right
