He shines in the qualifiers where as our two full backs have assisted with two back to back top five finishes. Says it all.

I do think he's decent but I've no doubt you'd round on him as soon as he misses a last minute conversion to earn a point for his side.

This. To my knowledge NGBC hasn't rated one FB we've had in all the years I've been on here, going back to Blaymire.

However,

Last year we missed the play offs by a drop goal in the Hull match
He would have kicked that drop goal, he is exceptional under pressure

Had we not missed that drop goal would have made the play offs

This year we lost marginally multiple times
He would have made the difference


So would Hampshire. We've already got the guy to plug that gap.

Agree PT, I really rate Hampshire as a full back
Whenever he has played there he always looks good

Who knows knows what the future holds at 1 and 7 for us
Hopefully jowitt will come through for us next season

He might have kicked a DG against Hull. If he didn't maybe he'd have cleared the ball against Sts?

It's the same as when you talk on here like it's factual but it just your opinion, that's my opinion

That opinion is based on my playing the game and watching from the 80s to the point of obsession. O'Brien would have kicked the drop, he's kicked several under massive pressure and from more difficult positions

Plenty of people will agree both ways

He might have kicked a few drop goals when the chips were down but to say statements like
He would have kicked that drop goal, he is exceptional under pressure
&

is absolutely pure conjecture. Nothing to do with how many games you've watched or played in imo. Surely it'd be better to say you think he'd probably have won us a couple of games from DG's instead of making a thing we will never know about factual?
