    Its very optimistic to think Dragons will win the comp this year but I think one thing he said may be true. Matt Dufty will be a gem.

    I'll agree to disagree Crush. I've seen you when you get cranky. Hope Dufty has a great season Xx

    Lomax is the one kid the club
    have identified as a potential superstar. They obviously like Field, Dufty, Herbert etc, but Lomax is the one they believe has the highest ceiling. A contract extension for Lomax is in the offing.

    Of course I really hope Dufty, Field, Herbert and all the other young bucks have a good season and secure a first grade spot however, I'm convinced that by mid-season Lomax will secure the fullback spot and keep it for years to come.

    We would be mad not to Possm.
    I'm of the same mind frame, purely from a collective view point. He's big. fit and fast. Hard to believe he's only 18.

    100% agree, he's got the highest ceiling. May take him an extra year or two to fully own a first grade spot though - let's not lump pressure on the kid.

    How about we take a punt on this kid? Nothing to lose so to speak.

    I love Dufty itd be criminal to throw Lomax in there who obviously would be better for us in the centres where we are so weak and keep Dufty at the back, bring in Field also on the bench so we have all 3 speed demons at once always around this way wed always score more points than the oppositition even if there was a bit of rooky defensive bleed

    Don't agree mate. Dufty looked alright on his debut and it all went downhill from there. I would go as far to say that Quinlan was a better option. Give Lomax the FB position. We need some defensive backs.

    That's in your humble opinion of course, DRAG.

    Why 'take a punt'? Why not bring him through properly and give him the best chance of a long, successful career?

    Give Lomax the FB position? "Here you are son, do your best"
    I don't think so.
    Give the kid some time in reserve grade and bring him through when ready.

    One of his football mates told me earlier this year but the Dragons had him locked up. I would say that Bellamy had him lined up to replace Slater. Other Clubs are not backward in giving talented young players a decent go. Both Dufty and Mann have previously been given raw deals by the coaches and hopefully this will change.

    Lomax will 100% play this year, no doubt in my mind. I don't think he'll get a starting spot but he'll force his way in when injury inevitably strikes one of our backs.

    Normally I would agree with you, except our pathways are looking a bit weak atm. Do you think a year under Head will give him any advantage? I'm not so sure.

    So do you think Easts did the wrong thing blooding Latrell Mitchell as early as they did? I don't.

    Do you think Manly blooded Tom Trbjovic too early? I don't.

    So you think that Canberra blooded Cotric too early? I don't.

    I think Mitchell and Tom Turbo are 2 very good comparisons to Lomax.
