Long odds to see this but:

1. Walsh
2. Roger Tuivasa-Sheck (RW)
3. Aitken (LC)
4. Berry (RC)
5. Pompey (LW)
6. Nikorima
7. O'Sullivan

8. Jamayne Tounua-Brown
9. Egan
10. Evans
11. Harris
12. Ben Murdoch-Masila
13. Sironen

14. Tevaga
15. Ah Mau
16. Murchie
17. Ale

All Roger Tuivasa-Sheck is providing is lots of carries, metres & individual line breaks. He can do all that from a Wing. Maumalo probably holds his spot after an error free 202m game yesterday but if he was to be dropped someone needs to take that slack & Roger Tuivasa-Sheck is best suited to those yardage carries.

So this is a thing now...🙄

Been a while since we had a debating point to rival Lance Hohaia at fb vs Kevin Locke.

Makes naming 'your' team somewhat futile.

One can only speculate had Walsh arrived at the start of CHTs injury run...what could have been.

You also have to wonder how much say Walsh himself has in this decision, as distasteful as a player choosing their position is, it is a thing in the NRL.

So....things being what they are, we should pray harder than ever that Chanel Harris-Tavita and Kodi come right.

Addin Fonua-Blake can't be too far off?

Feels like we are in a holding pattern at best, clinging to the edge at worst, till he comes back.

Anyone heard why Evans was overlooked? he was playing well...

Finally some clarity on Walsh, hopefully puts an end to the debate about him in the halves. What’s done is done.

edit: who am I kidding.
Walsh looks so good it seems it will not matter too much where he plays when he finds his NRL footing.

Really stellar rise from a new Warrior. At the moment he is on a par with the great Stacey Jones, who himself had defensive issues at the start, looked too small, but by God was he good enough to swing the momentum of a Warriors team in every game of his debut season.

So long as we do not waste Super boy on the wing I am reasonably happy.

There will be disruptions to the halves and Walsh will slot in. Just stay fit kid.

Exactly. Time for Roger Tuivasa-Sheck to move back to the position he was born to play - wing.

Made me laugh. Good one.

People won't like it, but the best thing for Walsh's career is a clear signal, a coaches plan, and some sticking power.

Pretty much the biggest killer of baby backs at the Warriors is constantly moving them around.

I actually believe though, that Walsh will prove the exception to the rule. He will play well where ever they place him.

But for now he needs to learn the defence of one position, they all do.

Pompey is looking like the latest victim of being moved around and or playing with new partners. Hope not.

Yep, probably wise not to see him getting bashed in the front line week to week also. Showed us again he’s going to be more than effective from fullback, he‘ll have more freedom from there and will be a threat where ever he pops up. Defenses will need to be on their toes.

I’m not too upset about this, I listened to a piece from Cooper Cronk the other week talking about Hughes becoming the half he is now after serving his apprenticeship as a fullback first. His running game is a big part of his game and was the biggest part of his game as a fullback, as was with Munster. Let Walsh play the position he’s spent most of his life playing, he’s still a teenager, he’s still cutting his teeth as a first grader, he’s most probably our fullback nek year. If he feels like he could have more of an impact as a half down the track, I’m sure we’ll accomodate.

Anyone wonder if Roger Tuivasa-Sheck is happy to play on the wing as it's the best transition to next year as that's where he's likely to play? It hurts to say given what he's done for this club but it's a possibility?
Also a few naming Rocco Berry in the centres. Was it confirmed that he was just dragged to get Walsh on the field/getting away from Sivo or was there an injury?
Certainly didn't help the bench from there on in

Roger Tuivasa-Sheck strikes me as the perfect second five option

Rocco went off for a head knock I read, but not sure if he passed hia or not
