Re: Official Rugby League & Rugby Union Thread

1. Prerequisites? I don't look at one position and say everyone who i consider for that spot HAS to have cetrain stats to be eligable. Thats ridiculous when selecting a TEAM.

I look at the props we select as a unit. Tamou is obviously a big bloke, going to make a bunch of tackle busts, make metres and play about 50-60 mins tops. So i wouldn't select another prop who has identical qualities to Tamou, you want a prop that can play 60 mins or so, make good metres, makes tackles and keep up a high workrate (Woods fits that criteria perfectly). The prop you select on the bench must compliment the starting props, take Merrin for example makes tackles, can tackle bust, can offload and compliments the the other 2.

To look at other positions, you want a balanced 2nd row. You can't select 3 tackling machines who can't pass the ball, likewise you can't select 3 ball playing back rowers. You need a balance in your side and if it were up to you, you would only look at players statistical output rather than their playing style.

2. Grant doesn;t deserve to be there over Woods or Merrin imo, he does deserve to be there over someone like Hunt or Tolman.

3. You know fuck all about rugby league, i'm not even sure if you watch any games.

Re: Official Rugby League & Rugby Union Thread

You’re confused. If you are going to use the word ‘deserve’, give me a criteria against which I can judge the subject. You can’t say “he doesn’t deserve selection because I don’t like his playing style”. Statistics show Grant has a fair platform for selection. Whether or not you prefer Woods’ playing style is irrelevant.

Re: Official Rugby League & Rugby Union Thread

Statistics mean jack shit once you get on the field. If you were a real supporter, and not just a stat junkie, you would understand that. The old saying that "you can't beat them on paper."

Jesus H. Christ! How exactly do you think statistics come about?

Newsflash: Statistics follow the part “once you get on the field”.

Re: Official Rugby League & Rugby Union Thread

Already shown you that Woods has a better statline than Grant. This is pointless.

Muppet, what better statline? Grant has been doing it longer than Woods has been in first grade! On that alone, he’s ahead in the pecking order.

Re: Official Rugby League & Rugby Union Thread

This year you utter muppet, or can you not realise that he makes more metres and more tackles per game?

Re: Official Rugby League & Rugby Union Thread

When the team for game 1 was being selected, who was averaging more metres per game?
When the team for game 2 was being selected, who was averaging more metres per game?

Wake up, you clown!

Stats do come from onfield performance, but just because someone has better stats doesn't mean they are a better player. e.g. Adam Reynolds has more tackles per game, kicking metres per game, and line break assists per game than Johnathan Thurston, yet Reynolds isn't within 4 leagues of JT. Grant may have the 'stats' but in the actual onfield performance and influence, Woods, Tolman, Bailey and a plethora of others are way ahead of Grant.

---------------------

Slater confirmed out of Origin, Inglis to fullback with Nielsen in the centres. We kinda dodged a bullet not having to put up with the Bowen/JT combination, but Inglis at FB, whilst I still don't rate him, is going to be tough to overcome.

Re: Official Rugby League & Rugby Union Thread

How can you not rate GI at fullback? He's the 2nd best fullback in the comp.
