As great as the guy has been should he be dropped when Manu fit. His handling errors of late are far two many. Three in twenty minutes today. His effort and hard work is there but can we afford to play him regular in the must win games when he is error prone. I do rate mini and am not knocking the guy before I get slated but doe she deserve to be dropped

To be fair to Minichiello one of the so called knock ons was never a knock on in month of Sunday’s as he played the ball correctly and not even into the Wakefield player who made no attempt to roll out the way and Moore decided it was a knock on. Thought other than that he played well and made decent metres today. He is not alone in the handling errors at either.

Sounds like your knocking him to me. But answer to your question, no I wouldn't drop him, he's a true pro, he'll be more miffed than any of us, he'll put it right for the big games to come. And like Chris said, he certainly ain't the only one

Mini always gives 100%,. You can`t ask more than that. Every player makes mistakes, otherwise no one would ever score.

Don’t think he was knocking Mini, just his point of view on his handling errors, of which he is guilty of.

Mini was not the only one guilty of a number of handling errors in that game though, the first one was because no one on the left edge made a decision to field the kick off which lead to it bouncing and heading to the touchline and Mini tried to stop it but was unsuccessful, the other one was never a handling error either as he stood up after the tackle and played the ball correctly (and not into the Wakey player either who didnt make any effort to roll out the way) yet Moore for some reason deemed it to be a knock on :CRAZY: instead of penalty to Hull.

Other than that I think he made one possibly two genuine handling errors but was very effective going forward so I'll forgive him for a couple of errors. That being said yes an improvement in handling is needed but its not just Mini as there were several players you could pick from yesterday with poor handling and its not something new.

4 errors and 1 pen yesterday. That's heavy going
I don't wanna knock him but it's virtually every game. It will kill us in the play off games . Has an uncanny ability to save his 1 or 2 errors for the worst possible times though. Really puts his errors in the spotlight

I love the guy Chris, but recently it’s like he has arthritis in his fingers, he’s still the best second row we have :D

Like I say yes he needs to improve but my point was that 2 of the errors weren't just as simple as a handling error as everyone left the kick off to bounce and Mini was just the unfortunate one the try and keep it in play so he copped the error which could easily have been Faraimo if tried to stop it before Mini, the other was never a knock on in month of Sundays. Then I think he only made one other handling error and gave 1 penalty away but his go forward was good. He wasn't the only one making a number of errors is my point and its something the whole team has to work on.

Considering the way the game went and was officiated its not a surprise as Wakey were pushing it in terms of being onside or square at marker even with Moore giving a very skinny 10 plus the messing about and holding down in the tackle was at times a joke and went unpunished which is probably why even Radford made comment about it.

I think Mini's stats from yesterday will be exaggerated by an over zealous referee who pinged him twice for knock on's which were never his error.
