Don’t get the Currie criticism. He’s exactly what he’s always been which is a superb front foot player. We have no go forward therefore he will struggle. He’s always been a passive carrier and defender. He’s never smashed people in defence or ball in hand. His form is purely a product of the prop issues. He’s not the player he was pre injury perhaps but there are far bigger issues.

I agree. But, he’s a luxury player. He’s not in the trenches really, never has been. But if you give him good ball, he can create and make space. We just don’t give him good ball.

No super league player should be a passive defender especially a forward. There’s also not being a strong defender and then there’s getting out of the way of tackles like he has been. His defence hasn’t been below average it’s been atrocious.

I’m not defending his efforts, he misses too many. I just think for a team struggling for form you can’t afford luxury players sometimes. For all of his haters, Jack Hughes would sure up that side, he’s a good communicator and is solid defensively. When your at the bottom, you can’t afford to carry luxuries.

Example being, Solomona. Realistically, he could have played 1 minute or 40 minutes, but only when the game suited him. We could afford that because of Morley, Carvell, Wood, Cooper, Harrison, Westwood, Anderson all being robust enough to give the platform. Currie in that pack would have been incredible.

Against Hull we could drop Currie and King to make a statement about poor performance levels. Move Wrench to left centre, Holmes to his more familiar left SR, Peanut and Longstaff to similar roles on the right. Job done.

Currie has had no lateral movement since he did BOTH his knees. That’s the issue. Still quick in a straight line but physically restricted otherwise. A real shame, but there we go…

Yeah i totally agree, it's a shame for him because he's a good player but could have an excellent one. I completely agree that Hughes would help plug a big gap defensively. For his basically complete lack of a good attack, he'll tackle and defend hard all game.

I thought the same knee was damaged when he came back.

Might be wrong, but I don't remember the 2nd knee getting injured.

It was the same knee, you are correct.
