Loads of effort but how many basic errors does he have in his game, He was quite simply appalling tonight.

Had an absolute shocker tonight. Crucial errors, at fault for tries, all over the place defensively. His worst game since he arrived.

However, he's been one of our best players so far this year. One of the few to play well in the absolute garbage we've produced over the last few weeks. I'd be pointing the finger more at the players who continually play poorly week after week.

No totally agree effort is a definite never in question BUT for me not big enough poor ball handling amd because of his size defensive issues

Was going to post something similar about effort v errors for Hamlin. For the game he was on minus points with regards that for me.

He was at fault when Ben Currie romped through a huge gap and was only stopped by the brilliant Hardaker tackle

What was noticeable was how pathetic our two first choice props where.

Totally and utterly non-existent. Tony Clubb is for me another Harvey one-yard Howard and Naverette is just shockingly poor. Was obvious that we improved defensively as soon as those were dragged off in quick succession in the first half. Neither offered a single redeeming effort when they returned either

We needs props!!!!
I'm a better fan than you
Because I don't "Boo"!!!

We never lose any games
We just don't win them (always the refs fault anyway)

Navaertte needs moving on, he simply isn't good enough, where that burst of form came from last season I just dont know as he's now worse than when he joined in 2017 and he was shockingly bad then, Clubb is coming to the end though as has been said the club need props.

Not just props were short off. Take Greenwood out of the backrow and what are we left with. Lockers who needs to retire, Isa, Farrell and Hamlin are not big enough.

As mentioned already, he has a big heart but that isn't enough. He lacks size power and skill, nowhere near good enough along with several others.

And then you look at Bateman at the start of this season at the Raiders - Big lad now and more than holding his own
