But is Mann worth blocking the pathway of Lomax? Kurt Mann is like Ben Hampton at the Cowboys at the moment (who coincidentally came through with him for junior QLD rep teams). He can play a few positions, will be able to step into any role if you need him but not able to do anything at a particularly high level. I guess like Hampton that is his role. Being able to play dummy half would have to be the next step. Aitken is limited but he is also very good at what he does. He needs to work on his passing but people go on about this aspect of his game way too much, even the commentators. It's not as important as it used to be. Defence is also improving.
