That bloody Anasta was at it again on 360 telling all and sundry that Darius Croft is on his last chance and how he was terrible against the Dogs yet the video they used didn't show he'd done much wrong other than the single ordinary hospital pass he threw. I can find 20 of them thrown by Milford. ****, what an agenda. I'm thinking why not talk about how atrocious the Dogs are instead? At least the drunk called him out, rightfully so saying "they've just won their first game in almost a year and you want the winning halfback dropped".

Yet the never showed footage of him missing a tackle or dropping the ball cold like his halves partner.
He made a half break on the right and spread the ball back in for Herbie's 1st break.
On Herbie's very next break, instead of Milf backing up...guess who? Crofty from the right all the way to the left trailing behind just in case.
That Riki drop was all on him and Cotric jamming in...or don't elite backrowers of catch and crash as was

I thought it funny they showed a good pass that Riki dropped cold as an example of Croft doing poorly. The other example was a hospital pass though.

Totally agree...so similar to how druggie Johns kept harping on about us having Ferrari's in Haas and Fifita without anyone at the steering wheel - in direct criticism of Milf-Nikorima. He mentionted this during a bad stretch when they lost a couple in a row, then right after the Dragons semi debacle but totally disregarded they fact that they had won something like 8 out of 10 games in the beginning of their combination.
WB was terrific in totally snubbing their NSWRL media bs RE both halves then.
Unfortunately Seibold caved in to that media pressure and dropped KNik after listening to those dribblers.

Hope Kevvie sticks to his guns on this one. Let the kid develop in ISC, or come in only IF injuries to both experienced starters (+ Gamble).

Edit: Milf dropped the ball cold three times in the 1st half, yet not a pip squeak from halfwit Anasta.

That's exactly it!!! I wrote that the very next day but oh no, Darius Croft somehow was responsible for Riki's dickfingers. Anasta banged on about it but Riki had ample time to catch a perfect pass and in fact had he taken it may have broken through. There's no doubt Crofty threw a bad one but I've seen Alfie, Kevie, Dazza and Johns all do the same thing at times.

Anasta should be more concerned about the Dogs than shitting on our modestly talented 7. I hope others on here can see how being told 'what to think and what's happening on the field' by commentators who are only half watching influences the viewers beliefs. If only posters would turn the sound off they'd see the game(literally here) in a whole new way. They'd actually reach their OWN conclusions.

Of course that will be rejected by many because they're utterly convinced they're making their own mind up. So few understand the insidious power of suggestion.

I'm not going to argue about Milford's handling in the first half but I know Milford threw several hospital passes in the match and had a few handling errors yet somehow his bombs exonerated him...very puzzling! I know one of his bombs was dropped but I didn't see anything that I haven't seen from other teams so I am unsure what all the penis massaging is about.

I just checked the stats on Milford and they've got him down fir two handling errors and one penalty conceded. Interestingly, Darius Croft didn't have any handling errors and didn't concede any penalties. Funy thing too, Croft was credited with a line break assist but Milford, he had his usual zero.

I really do appreciate your stance here but it shouldn’t become a Croft vs Milford discussion, they’ve both been poor and criticisms levelled at either would be pretty fair. I’d happily lose both of them if we had the luxury.

Oh, I don't think it's a Milford Croft comparison. It just seems that Milford has teflon coating and it's everyone's fault, from the trainers to the groundstaff and everyone in between that Milford hasn't performed. He costs more than three times as much as Croft yet hasn't performed any better and defensively a hell of a lot worse.

I pointed out that Milford did nothing in our last game except put up a couple bombs which were handled easily, well all except one. His defensive game was praised by Anasta during the telecast yet he missed two tackles and had two handling errors as well. Croft on the other hand missed two but still made at least 10 more without handling errors.

Now, according to Anasta he's on his last chance.🙄

Anyhoo, if he stinks it up against Melbourne he might get the chop and all his detractors will be pleased, they'll have identified the Broncos problem and all will be well when Deardens back in.

Yeah i have to agree with this, i think if we are going to return to being NRL heavyweights they probably both have to go.

Also on 360 not one mentioned the return of reinforcements in Lodge, Haas.

So...anybody pleased with what Dearden served up? I mean there were plenty who wanted Dearden in to replace Croft and you got your wish.

He just turned 20, so he's still got his nappies on as far as halves go. He doesn't seem completely ready for first grade, we probably won't even be able to call him a bust or a success until season 2023.

I’d like to see Kev put some faith in him, run him as halfback in training all week, none of this moving to hooker crap, let him cement his place in the team and announce him on Tuesday as the starting no.7 and work on his game. This minds games BS is rubbish. Melbourne doesn’t fear anything about us, why would they care who is playing 7?

I’d give Dearden the rest of the season to show us something. Next year, I suspect we’ll be looking for a new number 7 personally no matter what happens.

Croft? Bah. The Storm didn’t drop him and then release him for no reason. He is QCup quality at best. Fine for depth, but we ain’t going to win a damn thing with him as a regular starting half.

which is exactly why he should be developing his craft in the ISC

He should, and that was probably the reason why Croft was signed in the hopes that he could play there while Dearden develops, but now that he's played so many games I can only imagine he's only going to want to play in first grade.

That was a great pass to Coates. That's more than Croft has served up the entire time he’s been here.
