Pat Richards is a fine winger, and often talked about as some sort of RL God on this forum.
Tackles 75 (against Riley's 106)
Missed tackles 15
Much difference? No - so kindly pull your head out of your Aussie-loving *rse.
Now let's compare with some of the players who will be picked ahead of Riley this autumn.
Missed Tackled 37
Try Assists 0 (Riley 5)
Missed tackles 20
Missed tackles 9
Missed tackles 14
I would suggest that taking those figures as a (very rough) guide, Riley compares well with any British winger in the league - Tom Briscoe's stats are good, in two fewer games than Riley. Riley, however, gets over the whitewash the most, despite having played outside Atkins for less than a full season.
So, please, STFU and get behind a young Warrington-born, Warrington-produced player fighting his guts out for his hometown club.
Class, JB returns to the forum after many months, without a comment, Wires get to Wembley and he is on the band wagon......... and asking me to STFU and am an Aussie Lover.
Well JB, read all my threads and you'll find i disagree with the number of overseas or even resident type players.........so a polite up yours mate.
I have told you i like Riley, but he makes tooooooo many mistakes / errors.... end of.
and for the record i don't give a flying f about any other wingers in the league i'm concerned about riley.
(and so should riley as he will not get a first team spot next year)
so rather than a wire v wire rant over and out for me.
