Josh Hodgson might be on his way back at the rate he’s going. If we trim the squad we might be able to afford his leg?


I’ll probably get shot down here but I don’t really rate him, never have. I mean he’s good I’m just not sure he’s that good but I’ll concede that on this one I may be wrong.

I accept hooker is a position that needs looking at and he ticks all the boxes so obviously wouldn’t lose any sleep if we did sign him. Can’t see it money wise to be honest.

Think Millers quietly improved and certainly gets stuck in.

He tackles way above his size, something you need in a hooker

I think Hodgson is good in certain systems.

When he is “the man” in the team I think he can be world class.

If however you have 2 dominant halves and also Hodgson trying to control things he seems to stifle the attack as he wants to be involved in everything rather than taking a back seat sometimes.

I expect he will go to Brisbane who are desperately in need of a controlling leadership figure in the spine and I expect he will go very well there.

Think Canberra have simply outgrown him or rather his style and the need for him.

Somewhat ironic that depending on who they replace Williams they may very well need that type of 9 again, but he is clearly heading out the door at Canberra no matter what happens this year.

It’s a simple fact that the NRL as a whole have a huge rosta of players waiting in the wings to replace players leaving or moving on , it’s just a huge conveyor belt of quality coming through all the time . Williams and hodgson will be resigned to the history books along with all the rest ,and the juggernaut will move on .

Has not seen out his last 2 contracts - Thought he was out of his depth in the NRL - i would like to be on his pay packet - homesickness please he just hated Canberra - should of known it is exactly like the north of England in winter do your homework before signing - i have heard he wants to play NRL for someone from a nicer part of Australia so he made this up to get out of his contract .

I first muted Miller in the hooking role some time ago, I think he would make a first rate no 9.

Don’t see the point though as I think he’s fine where he is.

From what I’m watching tonight Miller would be superb at hull in place of josh Reynolds who’s having a mare aided and abetted by the rest of the hull squad

He's not built for Hooker. It would take a lot off his attacking game.
Of course had make a good stab at it but he's better being left as a 6.

Yep, he may very well put his body in front of anyone, but he often gets bounced on to his backside, good enough for a half to help slow down the attacker but not good enough for a hooker that needs to stop them in their tracks. :thumb:
