I agree too
I can see Finn going another two years.

It's his brain we need and it would cost a fortune to replace.

I have to post this. Up until late last season 2016 I had my doubts that Miller would make the grade. He looked many a time to be unsure of himself, even when presented with space in front of him he would panic and jink like a headless chicken.

That said he has come on and looking like a much more accomplished half back to the point where my opinion of him has changed drastically. He is exploiting defences with his speed and seems much more sure if himself when in space or defences lapse in front of him. His decision making has come on leaps and bounds. Passing when he needs to and running it in at the right times when something's on. I didn't think he had muck of a kicking game until last night. Those kicks he put up to Briscoe were on the dot and allowed a good chance forcing pressure and repeat sets.

Been impressed with how he's developing his game this season. Good on him.

It's got to be Miller and Finn from now on but I don't want to discredit Williams input this year. He's had a few off games, a few good ones but overall been solid and put in a lot of try assists to help us where we are in the league too. Williams should be proud of his contribution this year.
Top six 2005 - Trinity.

Kirmond has given us great service but should no longer be required to play long or full 80 stints. He was solid yesterday in 2 x 20 minute stints and was used how we should be using him moving forwards. He's still a solid player but more effective in stints these days.
Top six 2005 - Trinity.

Not his biggest fan but I said after the Saints match his running game was sorely missed as Finn and Williams were becoming easy to defend against due to a lack of varity in their locker. When he takes on the line it opens up so much more opportunity to score. I think Wood also benefited from the doubt Miller put in the Leeds defence.

Thanks, he'll be ok physically but I think he's struggling to come to terms with his playing days being over (has a few to many other war wounds now)

Going into the game last night I knew that we had missed Millers presence in the team, but just how much did last night show it?! Not only is he our number one threat with ball in hand, I think that partnership of Finn and Miller just flows right when we are shifting the ball - Finn definitely seems a lot more comfortable with Miller on the field than he does Williams and we look a better team.

Right from the off he looked a threat, faded and didn't see him as much towards the end but obviously hasn't played in a long time so id put that down to match fitness. Think he pushed Wood close for MOTM for me last night. With Randell still to come in I really cant see a spot for Williams in our 17, bar injury of course.

Yes, I feel Miller compliments Finn really well too. There seems to be something about Finn's good distribution and Miller's running that really goes well together.

Keep his chin up Vasty.

Would you believe, just before going away, I had another accident on mine.

Not broke though, I dont think, I hope. Just a bad sprain and maybe ligament damage
