David Bywaters Player Appraisal - Quins Home

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 David’s thoughts about Friday’s game against Harlequins at Headingley;

1Webb7I came away from the game wondering if Brent is 100% fit – he seemed to spend a lot of time getting his breath back and he was taken off with what looked like a reoccurrence of his back injury. Took his tries well and the blitz of pace he put on for his break in the second half had all the backs floundering
2Bush6Wonderful to see him score on his debut, did little wrong in the game, could not see his involvement in the ‘Quins try – very willing to carry the ball and ran in to the defensive line – Tom should be very proud of his debut
3Watkins7Given the previous week Kallum showed his confidence in his own ability and contributed fully to the game. In the first half he made a couple of lovely breaks. Good to see him get a try, especially after last week end his ability to cover full back could be crucial as the season progresses
4Senior8Keith’s form is starting to return – contract for 2020 must be up for renewal!!! A couple of runs in the second half showed there are few better athletes in SL than Keith in full flow.
5Hall7Bit of a nothing performance for me – Ryan needs to inject himself more into the game – playing alongside a strange centre isn’t easy but as the senior winger and an international Ryan needs to bring a bit more to the party
6McGuire9My MOM - Like the thoroughbred he is Danny stamped his class on the game, he controlled the whole show. His double kick try will take some beating for try of the year
7Burrow7Could it be Rob is trying too hard, if he just let things happen rather than try and force things some fluidity might return to his game.
8Leuluai8Kylie really has upped his game – his impact ball in hand is something to see, for me the most pleasing aspect of his recent performances has been the improvement in his defence, again tonight he put a couple of massive hits on – I have not seen a better prop in SL this year
9Diskin7His first stint was a disaster – his distribution was abject to say the least. Much improved for his second spell – fit well into the back row role.
10Peacock7To me Jamie is just going through the motions doing enough to get by, the last 15 minutes were a big improvement. Hopefully Jamie is saving himself for the bigger challenges ahead
11Jones Buchanan7A bit like Rob; Jamie is trying so hard and as a result of him trying to make every ball the money ball he is making some poor decisions ball in hand. His effort cannot be criticised just needs to relax a little.
12Pitts8Maybe Gotcha is right, Jay could be the bolter of the season. His offload for Webb first try was class – looks the real deal, hopefully he will get a run in the side – he deserves to be picked next week based on this
13Eastwood9Only McGuire’s brilliance on the night stopped Greg getting my MOM, played 60 minutes straight – some of the hits he puts on are truly bone shaking. It is going to be fun watching Greg for the next three years
14Lauiti’iti8Is there isn’t a finer sight on a RL field than Ali ball in one hand, arm fully extended looking for an offload. An ideal game for him, an opportunity not lost on the genius of a player
15Buderus8Like Diskin his spell to half time was not brilliant, but he more than made up for it with his second half display. Two tries and a good link with his halves, wish he would look where he is passing a little more
16Burgess7An enigma, comes onto the field makes a great break and then bombs the opportunity with a silly offload. Ball in hand he looks good, most of the time, his defence is poor as is his concentration.
17Bailey7Did what he does, consistent solid performer, a very important player in the way the Rhinos go about their business
