    Only because I'd want Kaysa to prove himself a legit player.
    Before people bag me out for that, Kaysa is somewhat lucky because we have so many other players that need to prove themselves as well. If we didn't have so many shit players at once then I'd have Mahoney starting no doubt.
    Plus I wouldn't give Kaysa that many games

    The sooner he breaks, the sooner he'll recover.

    Mahoney looked fine but Kaysa looks more explosive. I dont see issue with Mahoney having 6 games at wenty amd see how develops.

    And if he doesn't break (yeah yeah, a big IF), then he is probably a better option at 9 if we do bring Brown in early. Pritchard has 38 games (or part thereof) more than Mahoney.

    See the way I look at it is that BA is probably on his last chance so he's going to go with a fullback he can rely on, and that's Guth. He specifically brought him over from manly because he knew his talent and he knew his work ethic. Bevan's best game at fullback is only slightly better than Guth's but Bevan's worst game at fullback is a lot worse than Guth's.

    If Bevans not fullback he starts at Wenty.
    I have no issues with Norman,Gutherson or Bevan at fullback. But if Gutherson fullback I wonder who is centre. Taka?

    BA has to decide what style he wants to play.
    If its power and grind id pick our biggest and most powerfull men in the backs. That mean Taka at centre with MJ,FERGO,GUTH and the last wing spot at this stage goes to younger Jennings unless Sivo or Parry come on strong.

    With players we have id go a grind 20 with 85 degree angle runs on 4th and 5th. I'd also run split plays and double shifts every 3rd set .
    Open to the idea of the wind up double phase in 2nd half if behind by more then 8 with under 20 to go and single reverse to close games out.


    As discussed with Ram and he agreed 100%

    Are you sure he didn't only agree with 85%?

    Travis Meyn, The Courier-Mail
    15 minutes ago

    BRONCOS halfback Kodi Nikorima could be the first domino to fall in Anthony Seibold’s Red Hill revolution following revelations the New Zealand international has been shopped to the Warriors.

    The Courier-Mail can reveal the Warriors were last week sounded out about the possibility of Nikorima replacing Cronulla signing Shaun Johnson.

    The Broncos have repeatedly been linked with Parramatta playmaker Mitchell Moses, but club sources insist he will not be joining Brisbane.

    However, the Nikorima situation will ignite speculation Seibold is on the hunt for signings since taking over from sacked coach Wayne Bennett.

    I reckon BA is looking at what the best lineup is if everyone pulls their finger out. That’s French at back and Gutho in centres. But yeah Bevan has less games to prove he should be resigned than Norman or Moses, simply because his replacement is already a known quality. I actually worry for Bev that if given the start at fullback and then later getting dropped behind Gunco, we may see the last of him altogether. But then I remember his game this year where he ran like 2m and well f**k him, it’s his fault he’s in the position

    Id start with Bevan and give him 8 games before making any sort of calls.

    French does not have the strength to be a modern day fullback. Just put Gutherson there. I think he is wasted at centre and when fit and free from injuries is our best player.

    Your best player should not be restricted to half the field.

    Would you have Bevan running a double-split half play at 70-80 degrees off Juniors left shoulder with Jenko trailing for the chip and chase inside the opposition 40 with 7 minutes to go?

    Or don't you think that would work?
