    I am not talking about the ones Rothfield could help us with

    We have Brailey/Brailey and that seems it, I believe we are really light on in this area.

    The senior is not a flashy player at all.

    The junior seems to have those skills but not test in first grade

    Outside of that we dont seem to have any other hookers in the squad.

    Could we see Flanno move CT too the dummy half role, and share those duties with either Brailey, allowing Flanno Jnr, or Moylan to partner SJ in the halves

    Flanno said today he doesn’t want to carry a 9 on the bench and would prefer Flanno jnr or chad. Interdasting. Makes no sense to me.

    We'll most likely see Chad go to 9 when the prodigal son comes on.

    I watched them all.

    Bromance KFlanagan says "Jayden Brailey and Paul Gallen, love at first sight"

    Apparently Capewell is a pest along with Fifita.

    Gal does love a good bromance
    Past lovers, including but not limited to, Greg Bird and Ben Pomeroy.

    This is how F1 will get F2 into the 17.

    As he intimated yesterday CT and F2 will share halfback duties and whatever it was Seggy was doing laat season.

    IMO, you don't carry a backup hooker on the bench.

    You also don't carry a backup half on the bench.

    Remember Flanno carried a backup centre on the bench and we won a grand final

    Blayke Brailey is a better player than FJ.

    Cannot see what FJ would offer from the bench. No flair or speed.

    Blayke at least has a running game

    Agreed.
    I'd also go so far and say you can't have the Chad and FJ in the same side. Do two halves make a whole in rugby league?

    In saying that, I agree with the Flange about carrying two hookers. To win the comp that last bench spot cannot be wasted on a specialist hooker.

    Playing a second hooker last year cost us. It was a wasted spot.

    The game has evolved again for the need to have a Craig Wing or Michael Sullivan type that could play anywhere.

    That’s why Tyrone Peachey is a good bench utility for rep sides...

    I know he is not in the top squad but played for Jets last year Jack A Williams, could he develop into the Wing/'Sullivan role he is smallish but does look dangerous

    No 1: Jayden Brailey is flashy. He hasn't been flashy because he has been playing the conservative learner's game.

    No 2: Brayden Brailey is flashy. He has been playing flashy - against second raters. He will not be flashy in the NRL. He will be shackled doing the conservative learner's game.

    I reckon 2019 can be Jayden's breakout year. He should play 80.
