He may have been ordinary, but he wasn't "3" terrible.
Perhaps not a 3 but don't recall anything he did that would have warranted more than a 4 or 5.

He had no try assists, wasn't threatening in attack, conceded a pretty soft try and apart from forcing a goal line dropout, his kicking was pretty ordinary.

JAKE TURPIN – 3

Really....??

I didn't think he went too bad. I'd prefer him at no.9 and not have to watch McCullough at all....but as long as we still have to, Turps will do me at no.7

And he did a lot right too. I'd still rate him as good. He's not a big bloke but ****, he gives his all. There's plenty on here who cannot bring themselves to give credit where it's due but boy oh boy, are they ever happy to dole out fucktons of criticism.
I love Turpin, but unlike some people on this forum
I like to assess players objectively and not on pre-conceived notions on who they are as players. In a team that played well Turpin was our worst on field and although 3 might be harsh 4 or 5 is as high as you would go.

I guarantee if McCullough had the same performance everyone would be saying 3 is too high.

Huh? He missed the tackle to stop a bigger bloke from scoring a try but what else did he do wrong? I thought a 6 was fair, certainly not a 4! Playing against monsters whilst only weighing 80 kilos is no picnic I'm sure. A score of 3/4/5 indicates a poor game while I think 6 is an average game which is what I thought he had.

Look above. A forward pass on the 2nd tackle early in the game when in good field position. Another kick that went dead as well as the missed tackle. It was a worse than average game.

Really ? That's worse than average? So if you do 97 things right and 3 things 'wrong' then it's below average...riggghhhhttttt. Well, you guys mark it how you like, I thought he was average to good. Forward passes happen and Lockyer threw them. A kick that just trickles dead, big deal, it was after all a dewy night game. Ben Hunt lost us a grand final with colossal clusterfucks yet his game was considered great..other than fucking up completely!!

have you been reading this forum at all in the last 4 years ... Hunt has been gone for 2 years and people are still whinging about that ... and not a single person has called his game "great"

Mmmm, no. That's incorrect. His game in the gf was called great many times. You're right, it wasn't a 'single' person, it was quite a few. I'm well aware BH has been gone for years. Are you eleven with such a stupid question. Lockyer has been gone longer, why didn't you point out that too Captain Obvious? I wasn't whinging about the gf, I was commenting on perceptions about performances.

and you are clearly trying to re-write history ... many people have commented on his performances leading up to the GF ... but i haven't seen any one say he had a "great game" in the GF ... I have seen people defending Hunt, by saying it wasn't solely his fault we blew the GF, but the is a long way from saying he had a "great game"

p.s. what the **** has Locky got to do with anything, no one has been whinging about him in any shape or form

Meh, it was the Bulldogs but I for one am very very happy about that result.

They are a bogey side for us and there were periods of the game where just a few weeks ago we would have collapsed and allowed them to get over the top of us but we didn't let that happen.

We don't usually torch the Bulldogs at Suncorp so I'm very happy about the result.

The pleasing thing is we built on last week and we played a high energy game which produced some of our best attack of the year. Now we just need to take a lot of confidence from that and keep it going. Keep building and getting better.
Sorry this talk of they are a bogey side or they have a certain spirit doesn`t sit well with me .
Teams change personnel so much these days the teams and coaches are so different from season to season , that saying they are always strong at home or away or a match up with a certain club is not real .
As a new season equals a new team . Its not the St George team of the 60s ...

Besides the major stuff ups he had very little impact on the game and looked a little lost. I get he’s out of position, but people are able to call it as we see it, we all don’t have to bow down to the ‘God’ Turpin, we can call him out when he had a bad game like Thursday’s and the Eels and the Roosters.
