David Bywaters Player Appraisal - Bulls Away
Posted by southstander on September 04 2007 - 06:22:17

Davids MoM
by David Bywater

After a couple of season off, we've once again asked Davidbyw to cast his eye over the Rhinos performances of the weekend and pass numerical judgement on the players.

Bound to be controversial, and to spark debate on the message boards, we'll keep tabs over the season and see if Davids appraisal of player of the season tallies with your Man-of-the-match votes.

Read more here....

Here are Davids thoughts about Sundays away game against Bradford;

23Tansey8Excellent all round performance - stood up in defence and contributed a nice cameo in attack.
2Donald8Took both his tries very well the only critisism is the inability to stop St Hilaire offloading for the Harris try.
3Toopi7 His partnership with Smith looked fragile all night - Evans try was always on the cards - not Clinton's most convincing performance.
4Senior9One of Keith's best games of the season - fantastic tackling effort which helped to keep the Rhinos in the game in the first half.
20Smith7Not unlike Toopi - unconvincing in defence - no obvious mistakes but against a faster more potent attacker than Nathan McAvoy Lee could be exposed.
6McGuire9A crucial hand in every try yet again shows Danny's role as chief play maker - he also put in a huge defensive effort - a high quality performance.
7Burrow7Not unexpectedly Rob looked ring rusty especially in defence - ran with purpose without much impact - hopefully he will be running with all guns blazing by the time the play offs come round.
16Bailey8Hero and villan - stupid penalties but an incredible tackling stint - if only he could cut out his brain explosions he could be an asset - I would not start him as he doesn't have the impact with ball in hand.
9Diskin7Missed a number of tackles including the crucial one that led to Lynch's try - struggled against the bigger Bulls forwards.
10Peacock9Not as effective at prop going forward when played in the front row but what a defensive effort - saved three certain trys with one on one tackles.
11Jones Buchanan9My MOM - monumental physical effort - a superb offload in the lead up to Donald's first try and a tackling effort than would do justice to any top defender.
12Ellis7Not his best game Gareth looks like a player whose best form of the season is behind him - dropped ball, silly penalties he looks out of sorts at the moment.
13Sinfield8Indecisive - got caught in possession on numerous occassions - much better when combined with McGuire - sadly I cannot see that combination returning this season.
14Lauiti'iti4In the words of Iggy Pop "The Passenger" cannot have played for more than five minutes - Ali breaks down in almost every game - he should not be playing it is a waste of a place.
15Thackray7Some good some bad - struggled like the rest of the Rhinos forwards to get through the bigger Bulls pack. Lets hope he can keep hold of the ball in the next few games
8Leuluai8The only Rhinos prop to force the Bulls back in the collision - much improved defence last night
22Ablett7Very competent in everything he did - the score reflects his limited game time. Hopefully Carl will retain his place for the Hull game
