Yes it sort of has reached its natural conclusion. Although he never really got a great number of games in the one Position, 14s the right spot.Connor ain't no centre, he ain't a half and he ain't no fullback.
Happy that the coach has recognised this and bought in the outside backs, Tracey is a great utility..
Yep, I saw Connor as a nutcase with no fear for his own health. Exactly the way our forwards should have been playing. And he's really quick.A utility who is bad everywhere and contributed nothing to being one of our most important players in attack (assuming you value tries)
Tries - pfft. Anyone can score tries. What's really valuable is being the guy who makes the last pass on a 6 pass backline movement.A utility who is bad everywhere and contributed nothing to being one of our most important players in attack (assuming you value tries)
Agree. He's a footballer. NRL positions are very rigid so he is a square peg in a round hole - but a good coach will figure out how to adjust the way the team plays to take advantage of him. I personally really liked him at wing. His contribution coming out of his own end was fantastic. I'm just not a fan of just trying to slot him in saying "go play this position like this other bloke does". It wont work.Yep, I saw Connor as a nutcase with no fear for his own health.

Apart from having no distinct position to fall into, and not being able to pass backwards, I thought he was one of our most exciting players last season. Things lit up when he had the ball.
Plenty of backhanded compliments but that's Connor for me.
I think the above is the consensus.He's good when he slots in just not great
Isn’t this the Hiroshima thread?Since we are in the Berrell thread though, I'm going to pump his tyres again. My feeling is that Connor Tracey is either in the 13 or he is injury cover. In a game where you don't get injuries he doesn't fit as a bench player. If the plan is for McInnes to play as a running forward and to carry a bench hooker to give Brailey a rest for 20-25, I'll take Berrell over Tracey.
Whoops - Ikuvalu thread.Isn’t this the Hiroshima thread?
I have no personal view on Berrell just what has been said on here and I’d also take Berrell over Tracey as a bench hooker.
Although if Tracey was bench and no injuries I think probably more likely he comes into the middle and McInnes moves to hooker for a bit if we are giving Blayke a spell
Well in the interest of getting the post count up even more, I’ll throw Trindall’s name into the mix for that bench spot too. He also offers more than Tracey in a non-injury situation as a 9 or a ball-playing middle. Lots of options there.All the chat about other stuff got his thread into p4 in quick time. Trending.
