  • WTF Robbo - Lam on for 90% of the game and Walker on for 10% of the game?

    I really do not get it.

    Walker is 5 x the half Lam is.

    I wager if Walker played 30-40 minutes we never would have been in such a tight space at the end there.

    I am a massive Robbo fan, but I don't get it. What is he thinking?

    What does the coach see in Lam?

    I am dumbfounded as to why Walker is not our halfback.

    Can anyone explain it to me?

      Master stroke by Robbo using Walker EXACTLY when he needed to.

        Trust in Trent

        He did come on and win us the game.

          Maybe trying to avoid big Titans forwards running at him close to the line.

            I think Robinson is concerned about how much Walker gets bogged down in the game organisational side of things and how much it affects the way he plays. It was evident before he put him back onto the bench that Walker had lost a lot of his spark.

            Bringing him on in the 2nd half just to create points unburdens him of a lot of those duties. The message is clear and there’s no other noise in his head.

            Problem is Lam isn’t doing a great job either, every time he was on the ball it was clear the players around him didn’t know what lines he wanted them to run or what the play was.

              Lam will start hooker next week, so walker better be fit enough to last a game, must be injured.

                In hindsight he didn't need to be there any more than 10% !

                  I only assume that he's managing them both over the 80mins.

                  I don't think walker is ready to defend for 80mins in sudden death footy.

                  Walker was used to ice the game, whether he should have come on sooner I don't know.

                    Lam is a much better defender. Robinson should have used walker earlier though

                      I agree. I called for him to be put on around the 30min mark, in the match day thread. At that time the creativity in our attack was non existent. We were going nowhere fast. I too TIT, but there must be something beyond our knowledge that keeps Robbo placing Lam above Sam.

                        Walker just turned 19 not long ago in his first season and has had some niggling injuries. I am sure he's not trying to burn the kid out by dumping the responsibility on him so much this year. If Keary was fit I'd expect Walker would be playing every week

                              Walker is a defensive liability particularly with his shoulder injuries and Robbo seems to have lost a bit of faith in him since he ran a hundred metres backwards.
