#5 Devon Smith - Best and Fairest (really)


#2606

He’s done. Serviceable but a shadow of last year. Probably through not fault of his own but still.


#2607

If he misses one game will then miss another 8. Must be getting plenty of injections to get up every week.

Absolutely having zero influence currently, be ok if he was at least hitting the scoreboard.


#2608

If he has an Isuzu’s that needs rest, do it, because this year is cooked and we need him back to his best.


#2609

He stuck 10 tackles. Wish he’d clean up his disposal though.


#2610

u still mad he got the #5 instead of kelly?


#2611

He needs to be rested.

He is seriously damaging his reputation with these performances.

He looks to be going at about 30%.

Can we at least send him in for surgery now on his knee so that we might have a shot at having him right for next season?


#2612

He has been injured.


#2613

Love the guy. Gives his all and if all the players had the same attitude as him we would be in a much better position.

Would give him the captaincy right now


#2614

Did I not say that in the post you quoted?


#2615

Sorry but not with what he has shown this year
Not himself at all. His knee is definatly holding him back massively. I’d give it to Zach.


#2616

Well I guess he’s been injured twice now.


#2617

Give it to Stringer


#2618

Plenty of guys are having a dip IMO.
Issue (in the vast majority of cases) is making the right decision under pressure.


#2619

If he isn’t going to be rested, then he should be played predominantly forward


#2620

He’s a shadow of the player he was last year

Rest him. Clean his knee up now. Its embarrassing how down he is on last season, save him some face and stop playing him. He is clearly injured


#2621

We need to wait until his injury progresses to “Early Onset” before we wrap him up and send him off for surgery.


#2622

I hope the club do NOT treat and manage Smith they way they did with Daniher.

This is highly likely. Rest him please.


#2623

More likely that they’re waiting until St Essington’s Day. Unfortunately, doing that will cook his preseason for next year.

I would like us to get his injury right (or at least as right as it can get) rather than try and keep him going for the rest of the year. At the moment he’s not contributing enough to make it worthwhile keeping him out there.

I reckon Dev’s knee is cooked. Doesn’t sound good based on the BTV injury update
