Don’t be silly - much like Field in 2017, it doesn’t matter if he’s played 0 games against full grown men or that there are more developed options ahead of him vying for his position. Get on the hype train, dammit!!! Seriously though, it’s a valid point and one that many in here are overlooking. Little is gained from Lomax starting the year in first grade. He’s got a very high ceiling but he should be starting in reserve grade and coming through to first grade via the wing, with a plan to cement a wing spot by Rd1 2019 and move to centres or fullback in 2020. For 2018, I think Herbert deserves first crack as a backup centre and wouldn’t be surprised if Garrick is also ahead as a winger.
