I appreciate the guy is on a steep learning curve but for me he is simply too lightweight , speedy with a step , but it's not enough for a team looking to win a premiership , another on the " only use in emergency situations " .

Really good backup fullback
Probably about what you’d expect as a 5th choice winger

A good offseason developing his halves work a bit more and he would be my choice as a utility on the bench.

Has X factor, has speed, could then cover 1-7
Tracey plays Jets

Not Millers fault. As much as I love Fitz it was a horrible decision to play him on the wing. He is a fullback and that’s it.

He had the softest introduction of any player to NRL ever, playing Titans, Dragons, Tigers, Manly, Bulldogs, Knights.

So really his first proper game last night. He looks like a smart enough guy who can learn from it. One nice offload near the end. Has to work on getting that step to take him forward, not sideways.

I disagree, and it wasn't because of Lachie if we were. Our attack was completely disjointed when he was playing at fullback.
Our attack was built on Kennedy linking sweep plays as he can’t do anything else. That’s not Millers style.
If we make a play style around Miller or Dykes and our attacks completely different was to hard to change for a few weeks so stuck with what we had done all year.

Whilst I agree with you there, to say we were flying with Miller at the back seems a little, for a lack of a better word, disingenuous

No we weren’t..
40-6
16-0
38-16

yeh we were, he also attempted to make tackles and support players

we just attacked differently when we was in the side

bringing will back from an injury was a dud move, he didnt want to use his shoulders, his link up game against souths was dreadful

no it wasnt, in 2 of the 3 games he finished at fullback we scored 40 and 38, the 16-0 against Canterbury was down to basic fundamental errors

if you think our attack was disjointed when he was at the back, what the **** was it against souths?

Miller did do better against the easy teams than Kennedy did against the harder teams, that seems correct

miller also put his body on the line against props and stopped tries, not let a pasty red head run straight by him at home

it was a bad call bringing will back

Miller has potential but what has he shown us that makes him a better option than Kennedy at this moment in time?

Right now he's faster. That's it. I'm as disappointed with Kennedy as anyone, but him being wrong doesn't make Miller right.
