David Bywaters Player Appraisal - Cas Home
Posted by southstander on February 07 2010 - 17:21:51

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.

Here are Davids thoughts about Fridayís opening home game against the Tigers;

1Webb4He was no Clark Kent tonight - every Tigers try bar one came from a short kick close to Leeds line and Brent failed to reach any - he also allowed Westerman to carry him over the line for the other Cas try. On this performance should not play next week
2Donald7More active than last week, Scott looked solid under the high ball; not easy on that pitch. Given the flow of the game; especially in the second half he had few attacking opportunities
3Delaney8Continued his impressive start to his Rhinos career, was really missed when he went off with what looked like a serious injury. Brett also looked like he struggled with the conditions; he was blowing after ten minutes
4Senior6One of those Senior nights when nothing seemed to come off; twice in the second half he blew good positions; once he tipped the ball out of play and once he tried to offload 5 metres from the Cas line in an impossible position
25Hall7Like Donald; Ryan looked good under the high ball and ran the ball back well but other than that he had very little chance to contribute much
6McGuire7Cannot be faulted for his effort but it was one of those nightsthe when everything he tried simply didnít work. Lack of field position especially in the second half made his task almost impossible
7Burrow6Not the pitch for Rob who spent more time on his backside than upright. His knock on in the second half when Leeds looked like they had some momentum was costly
8Bailey7Carried on the good work from last week spent most of the game on the field and worked tirelessly during the whole game
9Buderus6His worst performance in a Leeds shirt - his age and pitch simply didnít gel with the result that he struggled with the pace of the game and his distribution suffered
10Peacock9Magnificent in a pretty dismal team display; he was the one prop who made real yards - lost count of the number of tackle busts he made.
11Jones Buchanan10My MOM a stellar performance - this was JJB at his very best. Other than Peacock the only other forward to trouble the Cas players and his defensive stint in the game - 80 minutes worth - was beyond belief
12Ablett0Not on the field long enough to score - no doubt his departure so early disrupted the Rhinos
13Sinfield6The pass to Delaney for his try apart a very innocuous game - didnít really contribute much - one of a very few poor performances - just not his night
14Lauitiiti6Like so many of his team mates Ali was very well controlled by the opposition - hardly threw one offload in the whole game
15Burgess4What do you say - terrible performance; he needs to bend his back and get his shoulder into the tackle rather than trying to stop the opposition at arms length. His inability to get back in the line is a real concern - like Webb on this performance should not get selected next week
16Diskin7Better than Buderus on the night; only just though. Bombed a real good opportunity following a break with a ludicrous attempt at a kick through - like most of his senior team mates he failed to deliver on the night
17Eastwood8Looked in better shape this week; he needed to be given his work load during the game. Like Delaney Greg really stood up and worked his socks off - looks like a very shrewd signing
