    Griffin makes some awful calls but surely he's smart enough to know Blake is a hopeless winger

    2 of our back 3 likely out for the year. Katoa showing we need a bench hooker. CHN playing well means Atleast a bench spot... Watch it happen

    Ruining another talent if so. Blake can be the best centre in the game IF HE'S LEFT TO PLAY THERE.

    If we need a bench hooker, just drop Peachey. We’ll be without him soon enough anyway. He doesn’t deserve it, but the team comes first.

    If Blake is moved to the wing that’ll be an absolute joke.

    That is one way to prove he is worth his money

    What about the coach almighty Brennan ruining Cartwright by playing him at 6? Unbelievable.

    I can understand the temptation but it's a stupid decision by any coach. Let the bloke develop as a running edge forward with good ball skills.

    I get the argument that Griffin was put in a tough position as far as roster goes but Brennan is just using him to put pressure on LG and it's silly.

    Youre not wrong Marty. Brennan is ruining his career.

    Carty isn't a 6 and never will be. Any time he spends there is just holding his potential development as a second rower back... which in all honesty looks like its never happening now. Sadly you can't develop in a position you rarely get to play.

    Imagine Wade Grahams career now if he had stayed at 6 and not been moved permanently to the back row. He was a more natural 6 than Carty yet he never would have become the player he is today if he stayed there.

    The thing is, Cartwright is just never going to be a high quality back rower.

    So I get the temptation to move him, even though I said otherwise at the time.

    He’s kinda a 5/8 trapped in a backrowers body. He’s just not tough enough to be a forward.

    Which is a shame because he can bend the line. He seems to forget how big he is.

    Sadly Bryce is going very, very ordinary at present.

    Personally I don’t think it would make any difference what position he playshe is just soft, lack’s any sort of passion or intensity in his play.

    If his lack lustre form continues for much longer coach Brennan will have no option but to punt Bryce to the Queensland Cup.

    Sucks about the injuries cat bros. As soon as it looks like you’ll be having a consistent season bam everyone starts falling down like flies

    Hopefully the replacements can do their jobs and step up. I like you guys

    Agree but a simplified role would help I think. Being in the halves isn't helping
