Aitken does have the reputation of not passing, but so did many top centres, Brett overrated Tate never passed a single ball to Lock or anyone for that matter.Nah, That break Montoya made & had Walsh in support and should have passed, But kicked instead was Montoya brother.
Yeah, I'd rather have Montoya & Pompey on the wings & Aitken(For now. I still don't rate him ) Berry in the centers. If they persist with Walsh at FB(I think he should be in the halves) I'd have Roger at centre with Berry. Just a waste out there. Get him a little closer to the action.
I guess my beef with Aitken is. All wingers outside him will look mud if he doesn't pass lol. Lucky we have wonderboy with that cut out pass of his that can skip Aitken out Defensively hes alright. Made some good reads. Got run over a few times & rushed in when he didn't need too. I rate him a 5 1/2 out of 10 defensively.
Offensively, i rate him a 3/10 lol.
Plenty of time to win me over tho.
He just hogged his way into running wide into the Wingers channel and scoring himself....which he was extremely good at while playing in the best backlines in the world....you will not find a Brett Tate highlight in a Warriors jumper anywhere on the interweb....because there are none. People rave about him as a Warrior but....
I would love to know what Aitken said to Walsh after Walsh cut him out three times in a row to Roger Tuivasa-Sheck.....
Straight after that Roger Tuivasa-Sheck try Aitken said something and Walsh shouted back at him.
