Did you watch Shaun Kenny-Dowell singlehandedly win the preliminary final match last night against Wests Tigers (after Carney, Pearce and Anasta had created the draw)? I guess not.
Did you watch him score against Manly or Cronulla? Oh, I forgot, I cannot quiz you.
And as for those pesky stats about the number of tries he has scored and number of line breaks he has made, obviously they are irrelevant to any judgment of the player. The Sun Herald journalists were obviously more impressed with them than need be when they voted him into their Dream Team. Perhaps you should approach the NRL personally and advise the organisation to stop bamboozling people with data, and suggest that the NRL just seek your opinion of players, which conveniently needs no objective evidence to support it.
you're on something strong. If anybody single handedly won it for the Roosters it would have been Carney. SKD won the game for them off an intercept, anybody with pace could have done the same so using that as an argument is quite sad.
I watched both, yes, he played well, I've never debated that he's a good player he's just not as good as you're hyping him, finsher, not a creater that puts him behind Inglis, Gasnier etc. who can take control of a game by themselves on their day, SKD cannot, he may be able to sometime soon but not yet.
Using stats to form an opinion? Nathan Merrit scored the most tries in a season for a losing team a few years back but was never above average NRL winger level, according to your theory he must have been superman. He probably has been one of the top centres of this year but that doesn't mean much when you consider;
Inglis - Been playing in a team with nothing to play for 3/4 of the season, 1st 1/4 he looked like he was struggling with injury/weight.
Gasnier - Only been playing for a couple months.
Hodges - Hasn't played at all
Lyon - Has easily been better than SKD
Falou - Out of favour a bit, I would say he and Lyon were easily the best centres of the year.
I have absolutely nothing against SKD, he's a good player, I call it how I see it and he's not yet a great player like some are claiming him to be. Most of his tries are scored off the back of brilliance from one of the best halves pairings in the league in Carney and Pearce. Since you're so keen on stats how about the stat that he has the most breaks that lead to no points? that would create an impression that he can hit a hole but isn't good at setting up the finish for his winger or beating the fullback. Not necessarily true but if facts are so important it must be. I wouldn't mind having a look at the errors stat aswell.
Seems to me just because you watch more NRL than the average poster on this site that you hold your opinion on it as better than anyone elses. So maybe instead of suggesting things for me to do, YOU should actually stop making out that you're above us all with your vast knowledge on the NRL, or just go back to trolling about getting SL clubs in ridiculous places in ridiculous time-frames.
