I don't think he'll ever be good enough to play full back in this league tbh.
He needs to develop his passing game big time as like you say he gets the ball and our attack just stops.

I thought McKinnon going was going to be a big loss but I didn't realise how much we would miss him.

It's not just his passing, it's his timing into the line, he never seems to get to the ball when he's meant too.

Another thing I noticed about him yesterday was that he spends most of his time in attack around dummy half, there were three or four times when we were on their line and Houghton had to shove him out the way to take control, when he should have been in a position to join the line.

We are missing Mckinnon's ability, but not his attitude.

Great on effort, poor on ability.

poop's himself on high balls, poor positioning on defence, slow on up take when joining the attacking line.

will make a far better hooker if he can tighten his defence.

There are the options of recalling Russell, recalling Mellor or moving O'Loughlin to stand off. Hopefully it's one of the latter two.
