Drops too much ball and when he does he chooses to put on a puzzled look on his face like “it’s not my fault, it’s his fault”.
Really pisses me off.

And we’ve got McInnes sitting on the bench.

Frustrating player.
Can put on a great hit in D but then either drops ball, gives away a silly penalty or just goes missing.
If only he could show his “good game” consistently rather than his mixed game constantly!

I'm usually his biggest defender but can't pretend that he was good tonight. Very below par.

That ‘great line ‘ that he runs is getting very well read these days - and it is hard to see what plan B is ….

That's on the coach. I'm sure he'd be happy to run any line as directed.

As far as back rowers go he's really our only good line runner. So the opposition defense always has him lined up.

Wilton is decent but a different type of line runner. Not as incisive but more likely to pop a pass.

Wilton left and Brit right. It is that simple. Wade, I don't know. I think the best he has looked has been when he is in the middle but runs with little oompf now. There was once in the game where the Titans didn't move up and presented Wade with metres galore and he looked a bit clueless, ended up taking a pretty soft "hit up".

One of problems is that the he often runs whilst getting the ball a split second before hitting the defence which is such a speculator. This play should only be used occasionally.

Even Wilton drops a fair few of these. The difference is that Wilton may only run this crash play once a game, not 6 or 7.

There was one run in the second half where Nicho passed it early to Nikora on an outside line and he made 15 odd metres. I think we could be using him smarter.

agreed, he is flat out **** at the moment and has shown no signs of getting better
Doesn't look like he's got another gear. When he does lift his game he looks completely spend after 25 minutes.

Nup, he diesnt
Nup,he doesn't. 24 years old and 74 games now, he isn't changing.

Please let him go!
Yeah let's let him go before he fills out and has a good level of experience. Not saying he is work 560 this year. But he is a handy player at 24 and will get better. Needs some size. It is also harder for younger forwards to be up every game. They should use Wilton to give him a breather and freshen him up a bit.

NSW cup would help him get some air in his lungs.
