    Could you run with “son” instead of “lad” for a few posts? Just to spice it up a bit! You know...

    How about expanding the repertoire - Champ, Sport, Flash for example
    or even "Mr. Knowledge" and "Mr. Walking Encyclopaedia"

    I though this thread was about Koroibete, who might I say killed it against the Pumas today. Great try and a match turning tackle, killer hit.

    Koroibete looked great for Wallabies against Pumas. Doubt he would leave Rugby now. Why would he give up playing for the Wallabies to play outside lafai or aitken?

    Agreed.

    What ever happened to the pride in playing in the beautiful thing to the left of this message? I guess the times are a-changin'.

    Crush again it would have nothing to do with playing outside of Lafai or Aitken as both guys can play its more about what game plans are made to suit and we all know McGregor has f**k all idea how an attacking set is supposed to work.

    Korobiete was nothing but paper walk with the possibility of one of the Aussie based clubs getting the arse.

    If Lafai and Aitken are our centre pairing again next year, then don't expect any better attack next season

    I like Aitken but am not sold on him as a centre, and think he will fill a back row in the future.
    Thing is, if Aitken takes a centre role, where does Mann play ?

    He needs to be involved as he is one of our few X factors.

    For me, he should go back to FB, which is why we originally signed him, he has great skill, can play in the halves, so the closer he is to the so called "spine" the better .

    Lafai was a disappointment when he first arrived but has shown how devastating he can be with off loads, speed etc.

    What then with Dufty if Mann goes to 1. ? I know the kid has talent and speed to burn, but is a liability in defence and return metres.

    Mann i will be surprised if he gets the number 1 job if McDonald goes he will play on the wing.

    Dufty from what I heard was instructed to pass instead of run the ball back i noticed this started happening for Illawarra with fullbacks and in the under 20's so its possibily a club wide instruction.

    I was told by some one who has been spot of with alot of info McGregor seems to think its a good tactic which clearly it isn't the same as the outside backs taking way to many hit ups between the first and 4th tackle in a set.

    McGregor has proven to not have a clue on anything really so its hard for players to improve.

    Yeah i dont think he will get the FB role Coast, but i would like to see him with ball in hand as often as possible.

    As to Dufty, you have seen more of him that I have, but he seems hesitant to hit the line on kick returns, and maybe as u say its a call from the coaching staff.

    Funny though as Dugan was told the opposite ( i.e just run the ball back ), if you remember the article some 2 years back. If Dufty can build up a tad, and read the play a bit better, then i wish him well. What we know is that Mann can tackle, pass and has an all round game. Just my opinion.

    When Matt got hurt at the start of the year his confidence took a hit but he had a sit down with Hornby and seemed to turn his season around.

    Maybe its to protect him a little to not do any kick returns thats the only thing I can come up with but Dugan he is alot bigger and his passing game is very low standard so telling him to run does make more sense.
