    He has won 7 from 11 in his career when playing in the halves.

    Admittedly, most of those were in 2014 when he had Jamie Soward to do all the kicking.

    Call me crazy - I don't mind Smith at 5/8.

    He's more dangerous with the ball than Salmon, on account of his running game.

    Having said that, it is pretty cold to drop Salmon.

    Haven’t seen much of salmon to suggest he’ll be a decent first grader. Yeah he can defend but that’s only one aspect of the game.

    I agree re Smith. He should prove to be a little more dangerous than salmon. Let’s just hope there’s no brain farts.

    The fullback and halves on each team wear a different colour so their movements are more easily observed.

    yeah he was. Not sure today but usually you'll find the halves wear different coloured shirts. This is so they are easier to identify in the drone footage. Orange is injured

    Does the colour represent their mood?

    No it's a measure of quality.

    Red is normally better than pink

    I feel like this is an insinuated euphemism, but it's probably a red herring
