    Yes - I noticed that - he played a bit like Heighno - made metres without looking sensational - my point being 'metres are metres'...

    You hold your breath every time Taga lines up for a run, because there's a 50/50 chance he'll drop it (slight exaggeration)...!

    Latimore has always been the same. Even from when he first came to club as an 18 year old.
    Nothing flashy. Gets the job done with limited fuss and limited mistakes.
    Hard to get noticed as a youn bloke, but judging by the longevity of his career, he is the type of guy clubs want, to provide that professional no fuss activity.

    Knew his role against Canberra and did it well. If he keeps going like that I can't see taga outing him.

    So you have Boogs, Heigno and Latimore.

    Only leaves one bench spot... Won't be Beale and it won't be Brown.

    So Paulo until Seggy, if it ever happens.

    Bakuya
    Heigno
    Latimore
    Seggy

    Now thats a bench.

    I could see Latimore being dropped and Capewell on the bench when Val is ready to make a return.

    Although that is essentially a pretty small bench cb4. You need one big bopper, and 2 impacting ruck type players and an all rounder

    Whilst this is true, we essentially won a competition with this formula. We also beat Canberra Canberra and North Queensland in finals games with a bench of Beale, Bukuya, Heino and Capewell. Taga played limited minutes in the GF.

    Yes. Despite the flaws in his game, Edrick Lee is a very talented winger. The bloke is in a new environment and a new city, with new weather conditions and new training styles.
    This plays heavily on a players ability to adapt. Add to the fact, he is a quiet, shy natured individual.

    Edrick is extremely talented, a natural try scorer and was on the cusp of Origin selection a few years back. He has now played with a Centre who had no confidence in tackling in round 1 and a centre thrown into a new position in round 2.
    Once settled and a combination develops, I expect him to have a solid season.

    Hopefully. Probably.
    I was told before the Broncos game that Parra was his likely return but wouldn't surprise me to see him back. maybe on the bench.

    Bird has been FB all week.
    Holmes could be on the bench.

    Give him another shot, see how he goes against a kicking game.

    Edit: he might need 2 more weeks

    I'd say he'd either play on the wing or wait another week.
