So we're 10 games in and it still doesn't look like Chester is sure of his first choice halfback combination. It would be good to see some consistency in this position so that we can hopefully start to play some better stuff in the opponents half.

That said, who does everyone think should be our starting 6 and 7?

Personally Finn has to start, we look more organised when he is on and he is the best goal kicker we have. Miller also starts for me, too creative to leave on the bench although he can be frustrating to watch at times.

Williams and Finn for me, would like to see Williams take the line on more though. Wood at Hooker with Miller on Bench, plenty of flexibility. Miller just does not create anything for me.

Finn and Williams for me. Miller coming off the bench.
Continue to support the new stadium at Newmarket Lane.
You know it makes sense.

To be fair to miller he's a running six surely rather than a creator? He needs to focus on always supporting the player with the ball and being ready for offloads. We are still too slow at supporting the man, twice ashhurst looked for an offload on their line and it went begging.

Miller and Finn for me, although sometimes Miller seems to be puzzled by his own play and stands there wondering what to do next. Williams a big disappointment for me. Not lived up to his reputation.

Me too.
To be fair, for creativity and general organisation Finn is our best so must start.
Not a lot between Miller and Williams for me.

Same here, it's when we've played our best stuff imo.

Miller's not really a creating half, sure he can put the odd decent kick in but that's about it. For me he's a running, tackle busting player (he's made 29 TB, just one less than Fifita), who should be looking for players to run off him, when he makes/see's gaps and also be looking out for pass from his team mates to put him into space..

Just to widen the discussion I'll chuck a suggestion in.

What about Scott Grix to stand off.
To me he has been our most creative player over the whole season.

Just a thought.

A coach should be rubbing his hands with a talent like miller, if the best he can do with him is bring him off the bench his coaching skills are lacking in my opinion dont they work with the kid
