people say he is a crab he only goes side ways! but with him being light in weigh would have more chance of being put in touch!

now if he went down the wing and got tackled into touch you would say why didnt u come inside! when he comes inside u say why didnt u got forward!

people are bored and nit picking at nothing!

his try scoring record speaks for himself! give the lad a rest!

How do you know this is what he is told to do? Does DR discuss tactics with you?

maybe the fans need to start shouting this way Craig and stop whn he is over the try line, or run craig run when a player gets close to him

He'll be going on a coast to coast run next or muttering that lifes like a box of chocolate you never know what you are going to get next

In one of the Coach's Corner articles last season Dave Rotheram said this tactic is used to allow other players to get back into an on-side position, allowing for more attacking options at subsequent plays-of-the-ball.

but why doesnt he throw a dummy like robinson did if he could he would be away! he seems content to go in make 4-5 yards get tackled go back on his wing why doesnt he throw  a dummy? try and make more yards?

Yer mate it would make him a better player if he could do that, i know he can go when theres a gap or space but to come off each foot and accelerate the way jason rob does when doin dummys is summet else.
