    He is really playing well at the moment, his confidence seems to have gone sky high of late. It would be so hard for me to drop him for Beau when he's back.

    I love all Stapos.

    You could move Feki or Beau into the centres. Stapo has played very well the last few weeks I hope he keeps it up.

    Yeah he hasn't put a foot wrong for mine.
    Makes good meters. Reasonably quick.

    Reasonably? FMD the guy is a sprinter!! He just powers through that middle 30. I dont reckon anybody would be faster at our club & I reckon hed give the top 10 NRL a shake.

    Yeah he's faster than reasonably quick.

    He came in as fullback under Stuart didnt he?

    Its unbelievable the guy is that quick with no knees. Imagine how much pace the operations took away from him, especially blast off.

    He made josh Hoffman look slow, when he got out of our in-goal and sprinted up the sideline. I'm a fan of Stapo. Reasonably safe under the highball as well. Nice problem to have, deciding who to play etc when beau comes back.

    I would have Beau over him anyway but it's good that he's lifted his game. Was ordinary first game back in the top grade but he did have an excuse.

    Yes, maybe it is time to give Feki a go in his favoured position when Beau is fit?

    Stapo has been playing well, but lets cross this bridge in 4 weeks.

    Ricky was playing him at centre. Can't remember how he went though.

    I've always liked Stappo.
    He has his fault sure, but he has guts.
    He always has a go.
    He got deadset smashed last night trying to bring down a bomb an got back up 1/2 a min later and got straight back into it.

    I remember him playing pretty well for us in the centres for one or two games. Back when he first made grade for us. He was a a fair bit smaller back then too. He might be an option in the centres once Beau comes back, he really couldnt be any worse than Mills.

    Didn't realise he was that quick. Doesn't look like a speedster but there you go. Should be kept as a staple of the Sharks backline

    FIGJAM!

    Stapo should stay on the wing and when Ryan returns move Feki to centre.
    Pom to reserve grade.

    Feki has played a handful of NRL games, he is no where near experienced to play centre.

    The defensive role alone is massive
