Omar to the Bunnies is what I'm hearing.
For someone who hasn't played first grade I'm not too sure how he could be a first choice wing or backup FB.
Luckily Bluey confirmed this morning that next week the FB slot is between Locke if fit and the Fish.
Fish has been unlucky this year in that he played in games where we were awful and our forwards got totally owned.
Put him behind the package way they're playing and you see a totally different player.
I disagree. While the pack was terrible in the games her played, he was totally disinterested in attack and kick returns. Who's to say his terrible kick returns, which would have kicked the sets off in average fashion, didn't affect the forwards? A lot of times, the forwards thrive off seeing backs run it up with venom. I don't really want to see a player at fullback that only plays well when the rest of the team is doing well. We need a guy at the back that's going to have a dig when the going gets tough, and a player that will put his body on the line to defend a try. If Locke's mind was in Fish's body, you'd quite possibly have the perfect fullback.
All in all, not a terrible win for us, but not to the standard of last week. Honestly though, a win is a win and we'll take the two any way we can get them right now. I think considering we had a 5/8th back at fullback we should be bloody stoked to have won. It was a gutsy effort to win in that position, even if we did get a few calls go our way.
How good was it to see the young blokes step up too? Mara came out hot, and did a lot of good things. I think he really had something to prove and he did that. These next six weeks could be very interesting. If he's really good, maybe he can nad a spot on the bench for the rest of the year. Hurrell, while still learning in defense, is an absolute weapon in attack. Johnson
just continues to baffle defenses, while learning to really control the game. Benry is making us all eat our words from after the first game he had, and is making a real fiat of playing centre too.
Manu is actually hitting a bit of form too. He's seemingly on the way to being the player we love, and not the liability of the past year. Maybe i was the test match that played him into form? He's been a lot better since then.
Also, when is Rapira back? We neeeed to get rid of Tai'ai he's a total liability right now. I can't wait to see him lining up for the Vulcans. He's gone ridiculously backwards this year. The props weren't amazing last night, but they did alright.
Calling it now, with Jimmy in that Roosters team, they'll win a premiership. Their forwards are developing into a fearsome pack, Moga looks to be a good player, and the rest of their team is solid. I think they'll go close to top 4 next year is Maloney fits in well.
