I really don't hate Chad Townsend .
Decent bloke and no dramas off field .
Grand Final winning halfback.
Just glad he's gone and not being a roadblock to other up and comers .
Tatus , started this Townsend talk here in the Toby thread .
Somehow twisting passion comment into a Chad comparison .
As I said 2 posts later .
Only added passion to original Toby post as I didn't want to trash Toby .
He has a LOT to offer , especially moving forward if his defencive issues get rectified .( passion a bit of a counterbalance. )
I never mentioned Townsend , Tatus did .
Yes Townsend did have passion too .
That part wasn't trashed by me ever .
At the risk of starting a YET another Chad bashing .
It's his abilities that we're ordinary and I already prefer Trindall after only 5 games as Sharks halfback .
My original post was about Toby's poor defence early in that game
His defence was GREAT the week prior , but slipped again to the ordinary standard you mention most of the year .
BUT , he's one of the few props that run HARD in our team , so didn't want to totally trash him , his effort is good.
As for Woods, Magoulias, Dugan or Fifita , is there any great reason for me to give credit for their efforts ?
The only one I probably trashed would have been Woods amongst that group , for his half hearted jogging the ball up in reverse , in addition to his lazy tackle efforts .
Why would I need to cut him slack ?
At least Toby puts in , what's the problem with that ?
thought he had a good game tonight
hes stepping it up lately after a mediocre middle part of the season
more focus and effort in his carries and tackles. good to see as I was starting to go sour on the bloke after such a promising start to his sharks career and us resigning him
