Oh dear.


Why

I would.

Thorman cant run, cant tackle, cant pass, and if he does its to the opposition wingers, he can kick very well though, sometimes.

Brown, can run, can tackle, occaisionally passes well, but cant kick too well, he can also break a tackle and go through a gap, something Thorman hasnt done in the 2 years previous.

Given that Brown was behind a beaten pack on friday, and Thorman was behind a winning pack, Brown looked better imo.

You may not like Thorman but making statements like that undermine your case.

If Friday was anything to go by Brett Hodgson cannot tackle, does not know when to pass the ball or keep it and cannot kick goals would it be ok to get rid of him.

Thorman is a good passer and his tackling was Ok. he won us more games than he lost for us and there are not that many players we can say that about. he set up two tries for Hull so he must have done something right. thorman had strengths and weaknesses as do most players. What is important is how the indavidual players come together to make a team.

Hulls half backs had more balance and complementing skills than did ours..

i was going to stop joining in this debate about Thorman but if everyone else keeps slagging him off unfairly i may have to break that promise.

I wish we had kept Thorman for another season and given Brown time to pick , choose and mould his own players. We will see how well Brown and Robbo are at the end of ths season.

DG, given events, I wish we had kept Thorman another season, but as it stood, he wasnt needed.

And after Fridays game, he cant run, tackle or break a tackle

But you are right, I was alarmed by how easily B. Hodgson was brushed aside by Horne.

That is taking being biased to a whole new level.

However he can organise, start the plays and contribute with his kicking game. Something Huddersfield seriousley lacked.

Still managed to score 4 tries.

What we were lacking was someone who could pass and catch a ball.

We gave you two of the tries.

We'll soon see what happens of it, but Brown and Robinson will lead you to nowhere in my opinion.

Without naming all the individuals who were awful, DG's piece says it all for me.

How many people prefer Brown and/or Robinson to Thorman now? He outplayed the both of them put together.

The only players to come out with any credit for me are Mason, Raleigh, and Lolesi with possibly Moore as well.


ME ME ME, all Thorman did was stood and passed the ball to Horne who was outstanding, He put a good kick in which resulted in a try, but at one point there was a gap as big as Humber and he was too slow to get thru it, sums it up for me.

Thorman 30+ Good football brain, too slow now
