Our backline is always topic is one of much debate on this forum. I recent read an interesting article which highlighted a few things. Link to article - https://www.nrl.com/news/2018/02/07/euan-aitken-hoping-ben-hunt-helps-red-v-right-edge/ A few things I observed from this article: - It looks like Mary is definitely going with split halves, Ben Hunt on the right, Widdop on the left (with a license to roam). Quote from article - "Hunt told NRL.com that while both he and Widdop would have a licence to roam, he expected to spend the majority of his time on the right edge, where he will also defend next to Aitken." - This is a quote from Ben Hunt - "Between him (Aitken), Friz and I think we'll have Nighty (Jason Nightingale) on our side as well so the more time we can spend together at training and practising our combinations the better it will be." Which means it looks like Nightingale will be making a switch to the right wing, Nene to the left next to Lafai. It also means that Nighty is going to be a walk-up start. He won't be replaced. It's also looking like Aitken is confident he won't lose his spot either, seems to think he is also a walk-up start. What are your thoughts on our backline for 2018?
