I don't hate Shaun Johnson. Just don't understand how be can have games like last night were he goes missing. Didn't take the line on once. He had seven on his back last year and play exactly the same way. JT played a more traditional 6 role at the cowboys which meant he didn't get his hands on the ball as mu h as at a traditions 7 role. Dumb move. Now if you are advocating we change the way we set up and run our offence to a more traditional 6 and 7 role with Shaun Johnson at 7 then I'm all for that. We saw in second half against tigers that this could and did work for us. Shaun Johnson was touching the ball 3 and 4 times in the set and playing at pace. Broncos may have limited his chances more last night with their better defence. However in our current set up he could play with 43 on his back and we still get him drifting in and out. They gave him 6 to let him know it doesn't matter what number he has on his back his role is the same.I didn't want to get into an argument with u coz we all know it's gonna be far from rational. Everyone knows how biased u are against him. It's right up there with faceys hate for manu so anything u say about him is hard to take seriously.
But if you're gonna paint me into a corner....
If the number on his back means nothing why did they change it?
They want robson running the team and Shaun Johnson playing wider( ever tho with the reduced interchange all the holes are in the middle).
Think about it- you've got Shaun Johnson and Jeff robson in the team and u want Shaun Johnson playing the support act?
Have u seen how much ball robson is getting? Have u seen what he's doing with it?
Do u remember when the Cowboys moved Jt to 6 and he got starved of the ball and they kept losing? So they gave him the 7 back and the rest is history?
Robson won't even be in the team when TL gets back so what's the point of building a game plan around him.
in my opinion they should force him to play the traditional 7 role and be would have no other option than to be involved.
