Connor is the least of our problems, but for some fans on here he gets most of the criticism.

Would look great in a Saints or Wigan team creating tries for fun?

Player of the month, 4th in Man of Steel standings but just not good enough for some of the amateur coaches on here. It beggars belief.

Which is just what he had been doing with McNamara and Lovodua as the halfback pairing. McNamara has in the past been criticised and even at times I have been critical of him but he certainly seems to be a player that whilst not doing the flashy stuff or making the eye catching breaks he does the unselfish work which opens the door for Connor to be instrumental.
I really enjoy long walks especially when they are taken by people I don't like!

McNamara has done a decent job and has improved from last season. He is still only 20 and there's no reason why he shouldn't get even better. I'm not saying he should be in the team week in week out but he has the potential to be a useful squad player.

Jake is the best player we’ve had in many years
A future Hall of Fame if we don’t mickey him off with average coaching and he leaves
I have lost interest

Will always be a rocks n diamonds player, my frustration is I think he could be sooooo much better and maybe hit the NRL - in his defence we are just so reliant on him for attack, which puts him under pressure unlike similar players elsewhere with more strike players.

Credit to him & BH, I do see improvement this year, less rocks & more diamonds. His lack of pace is a problem at full back but lets face it everybody knows it, only a problem when broken from deep & he is defending alone. Field has embarassed MANY this year & is exceptional in SL this year.

If we had either of those two, they would probably an unused sub.

Hard to remember a player in the last 20 years whose game has been more scrutinized, everytime he makes a mistake people mention it or shoes a clip of it, if he plays well it's because the opposition is bad, he has been very good in lots of games, including against top teams and at international level.

He hasn't been great the last two games, but most of the team hasn't, but he gets most of the criticism. Despite this he still help create trys and opportunities, the rest of the big players need to step up and take some pressure off Connor.

You certainly can't criticises his effort the last two games, certainly not our worst player, but he gets all the criticism.

Lack of pace and needs to work on his one on one play with Hodgson, he has proved when playing 6 and centre he can defend.

Positives far outweigh his negatives.

I'd like to see us sign a FB and use Connor at halfback with Truman next season.

Your trying to say Connor is better than French and field wow :CRAZY:

Our fans really don't help at time hyping up ok players to be the best in super league

And then when we fail come end of the season they are surprised

Centre is different your in the line with players around you

Full back your on your own if a player breaks the line and he gets found out defensively far too many times

Lplohea isn't even fast yet Connor made him look like Usain bolt!

Oh and shaul would of 100% caught him
