    Even more likely is that RCG is going to be expected to play his role in defence, allowing us to have a more "attacking" option on the bench

    Which would be fine if that option was someone other than Penishands TerePillow

    He's good for a dropped ball, or two, at crucial times, true...

    RCG was signed when merkins were still saying Alvaros work rate and defensive ability were needed in the team. Alvaros work rate and apparent ‘best middle defender’ in the game isn’t needed (or true) because other blokes can do what he does more effectively.

    I would have preferred Kaufusi to Terepo.

    I don't think being dropped for a single game is proof of that, it's indicative at best.

    Not even in the 21. There are 8 middle forwards ahead of him (which is pretty telling) RCG , Paulo, Brown, Evans, Niukore, Terepo, Stone and Kaufusi.

    This is false. In the last two years how many balls has he dropped. No more then average or perhaps less.

    More effectively, or just effectively enough that it allows us to play a more attacking bench?

    It should also be noted that Alvaro was in pretty rubbish form last year.

    Alvaro still has to contribute on both sides of the ball so on the whole (attack and defence) I would say more effectively.

    I know he sets the linespeed in defence etc, but can we sometimes hide reed at wing to give him a breather

    Not good for Alvaro if that is the pecking order (albeit only one match)

    Injuries, Origin, poor form he may get a crack at some point, needs to make the most of it then

    He has played reserve grade every year since 2017. Why is it suddenly 'telling' that other fringe first graders are having their turn in the top 17?

    Think he threw a pass that led to another drop (Decore I think)

    You should be more worried about Terepo.

    Visited a school recently and later took 2 girls back to their hotel room. Both overage but no mention of them having sex with them (innocent until proved guilty). But still stood down, not sure what crime they have committed even if they did have sex?
