    Burton. Great touch finder and try.

    Has he played much fb? Quite rangy. Just thinking if he could fit in the top 17 next year along with Luai.

    Sele, Burns, Ellis all look good early.

    If we are still serious about playing finals football I'd be dropping RCG for one of these guys. They run a lot harder.

    He played everywhere but FB is fine. I'd play Luai at 9 or Burton at centre to get it done

    Hopefully we persist with Hands at 9. He looks promising

    Did I just hear the commentator say we have used 52 players in CC this year. I knew we had used a lot but 52 astonishing. Three teams of 17 basically.

    I'm thinking about 2020. I don't think Luai could play 9. But Burton has the size to play across the park. He would be dangerous from kick returns.

    Our halves aren't touching the ball much. Would like Burton controlling more.

    I know it was poor opposition but Luai was good in 9 for Samoa. I'd move Burton but Edwards is actually playing FG standard. So not sure it strengthens the 17 with that

    Blore does this often. That is for Burton to overrule him

    You can see the difference when Burton played with Cleary. Cleary brought him into the game well.

    Edwards is playing well at the moment, but he’s susceptible to the crop of youngsters around him.

    There’s more to the comparison between Burton & Ponga than just their head gear, similar style of player. Just style at this point, not talent.


    Burton honestly looks like he could play every position in the backline.
