It was like Cam should've rolled out a red carpet for the fullback because he was the fullback & how dare anyone else have a crack

Sloans jump has peaked a meter short of where the ball landed. Contentious, sure, but Sloan and McInnes both misread and collided

What’s the chances of this guy getting a run at hooker at some stage?

Brailey hasn’t really set the world on fire and this guy was mvp at hooker when he played there for the dragons.

Yet BB got a Dally M vote (strange I know, but someone thought he had a decent game)

MVP at Dragons hasn't been a high benchmark in recent years

Except when they moved him out of hooker for a 104 yr old Isaac Luke.

Have never understood this arguement.

"Blayke offers nothing offensively, quick let's hook him for someone who offers nothing offensively."
By nothing offensively are you talking about someone that makes nearly twice the run metres, a super quick play of the ball, nearly 50 tackles a game instead of 42 and about twice the offloads? (This is based on the last 3 years at hooker when at St George)

Yes Blayke has a few more try assists, but apart from that he doesn’t seem to win out at all.

I am not saying it is the right move and that cam would be as good now……but Blayke has really done sfa this season and Cameron McInnes was pretty darn good at hooker.

A number of mates are stains fans and were proper pieved with the club when they lost him.

I think you are making this up...

Yearly averages were 30, 61, 62. Blayke is 43, 41,43. Averaging that out it is not "nearly twice" as much. You might want to check that your Epson calculator hasn't been hacked by the Russians.

Notwithstanding them having completely different coaches, playing styles, and rules, the difference here is maybe 1-2 times per game where he takes the tackle instead of finding a runner. Running metres is completely irrelevant.

a super quick play of the ball
Has that been measured? Does he get quick ptb when he scoots on his own, or only when he runs as a forward with support?

nearly 50 tackles a game instead of 42
This is just completely incorrect. Across the period you are referencing Blayke makes more tackles per game. 51 vs 47. It's still irrelevant though, because making a few extra tackles per game could just be the result of being on a team who has the ball less.

and about twice the offloads?
Offloads! Now that's a stat which tells us who the best hookers are!

Irrelevant. Try assist is a fantasy stat. It doesn't tell us who is good.

Coach seems happy with him. I think he has been great. Needs to clean up the errors, but otherwise he is playing exactly how the team needs him to. Solid in defence, great service, play a link-man role when needed, talk to his halves, etc.

That must be why they moved him to lock.

A number of mates are stains fans and were proper pieved with the club when they lost him.
... which was after he moved to lock and became their best player.

Couldn't have said it better if I tried

Only thing I'd add is my captain signing elsewhere would piss me off too.

Yeah true forgot last year at lock.

However, Cam does run more metres from hooker and would look to run from hooker. Which Brailey has really not done all season.

Cam does have a quick play of the ball.

Yes you guys might think that Brailey has been great but that is an opinion. Which a lot of other supporters don’t agree with.

Me throwing out Cam as an option was just that an easy option that could be tried without shaking up the team line up.

Either way, he was good at the stains at hooker and definitely didn’t deserve a berating for suggesting him as a valid hooker option!

Not berating you mate. I pointed out the flaws in your argument. That’s not the same thing. I never said you were dumb for saying it, or anything like that. Attacking poor arguments is fair game. Attacking people is poor form.

McInnes to hooker might be a great idea, but I haven't seen anyone actually make a good argument for it. What it boils down to for everyone is "I don't like the way Brailey is playing". That's not a reason why McInnes would be better.

Mcinnes 9 off the bench, Graham bench lock when he returns, see if he can play make in the middle, definitely has a better passing game than Dale 😅

Said it numerous times, mcinness should start at 9 for the first 15 minutes then bring brailey on for the rest of the game. Allows probably to avoid the heavy collisions at the start and that might assist with opening up his running game because he won’t be as tired.

Ok. So now please show me evidence that Brailey being less-tired change anything.

Does he miss more tackles the more minutes he plays?

Does he run less the more minutes he plays?

Back when he was coming off the bench, did he run more?
