Just to keep this updated and I firmly believe last Saturday, Macca played himself out of the world cup. In my humble opinion, he was the worst 9 on the pitch.

I do worry that he's trying to find the magic with every play instead of just keeping the simple game plan that saw him become MoS.

He’s got very lazy looks like he can’t be bothered running.

well last night we watched our cup tie at Headingly earlier on this year & i would say he's put at least a stone in weight on & doesn't look half as fit as he was then???

Mc Shane as been great over recent years one of the best hookers we have had over recent years being man of steel is no mean feat the lad is getting older so that may be the reason for his drop in form Cain Robb ought to be spelling him these days

I believe our current coach is having a negative effect on Macca.

Well George Williams was half decent last Saturday and I put that down to the different coach.

I think many share the view he's not the same this year but Macca isn't a poor player or weak minded. He certainly had the opportunity to show Radders how he can, and perhaps should play.

C'mon Paul, we know you can do it...

I read an article by him recently where he said pre season had been disrupted and he had taken a bit longer than he thought to get used to the captain’s role but that he was expecting a better 2nd half of the season and to be pushing for that international spot

well he didn't do himself any favours against the "all nationalities team" or what ever it was, he just looked unfit & if hes carrying an injury why would he have put his hand up to play?

If he is carrying an injury, I’d far soon let him recover from it fully than be a passenger on the field.
An unfit Macca is no good to us, we have Milner and robb as reserves.

Spot on...even Mr Wane commented that he needs to do a lot better that's been the case for quite a while with him if he's been playing injured all that time fair enough that would explain things

Maybe the burden of being captain is taking it's toll. A lot of pressure to skipper a team as well as perform like one every week.

He probably is playing injured, but then again, so are most other players in our squad and Super League as a whole. Would think a large majority are getting jabbed up weekly to get through games.

Bang on OCL. Also, I have a feeling that the armband is weighing a little heavy on him - maybe give it Westerman and let Macca get back fit and back to what he does best?

I can’t get my head around being captain is weighing heavy on Macca.
What does a captain do.

Participate in the coin toss.
Lift a trophy (highly unlikely)
Maybe give more interviews than normal.
Have more input in team meetings.

Anything else.
