    Up until this year he was a centre or winger. Although in the very few games I saw of him at fullback, probably 5 all up which were the 20s trial vs souths, reserve trial vs souths, round 1 20s, and 3 schoolboys games (he played left centre in round 1) he looked good at fullback.

    I particularly liked the way for early tackles he would hang around forwards for an offload then later on in the set would move out wide for the shift. A lot of modern fullbacks seem to want to get into shift position early.

    I’ve heard from around the area that it actually may not be a problem, although it may create other problems. The person who told me may even be a poster here.

    he was only on a second tier deal with us this year and there is a chance he may be back with us but not confirmed.

    Bryce Cartwright is training well and will push his way into the 17.

    Dylan Brown reckons he will take Gutherson’s mantle as the fittest in the club. Jake Arthur is also on the podium.

    Hope Cartwright is doing plenty of tackling practice. He looked allergic to it when he was at the Tits.

    Didnt Brown already try and take the kings mantle as the fittest and ended up in hospital?

    Issue is....
    Bryce trained house down at Titans and Panthers also. He is noted as being one of the best trainers and fittest players.

    If MJ is gone and Alvaro departed to the Dragons, does anyone think this is to free up more $$$ for a quality outside back?
    Would be keen on Corey Allan or even Widdop.
    I think between Opacic and Oldfield we could probably cover 1 centre position for the season.
    Opacic definitely runs good lines and can hit a hole.
    Oldfield is under rated and super quick. Injuries not ability have been his downfall.
    Obviously if better players do become available then I'm all for it.
    There is some terrific competition on the bench in the fwds nxt yr.
    Nuikore, Kaufusi, Papalii, Hipgrave, Cartwright, Stone. Roache is similar to Oldfield in that he has a stack of ability.
    Roache in the limited games ive watched him play reminded me somewhat of Kevin Kingston. Slick service and good quick darts from dummy half.
    Throw in the likes of Dunster, Hollis and Hughes for some 1st grade experience and we have a pretty good overall squad. Definitely better than this year.
    Hopefully we dont run into the Storm in week 1 or 2 of the semis. (Need to get there first)

    until Jenko's B sample is released he is still being paid.
