Again, whilst we're all euphoric at Ramsays success at the 9's, just remember it was the 9's. 9 min halves, unlimited interchange, players on and off almost after 1m stints. There were clube that fielded strong teams, most filled with youngsters like Ramsay. But, none fielded their full NRL 17, just as we didn't. Ramsays had 1yr in JF, has not played (to memory) any CC games. So he is yet to play regularly against men. Could he handle it? Imo no. Someone mentioned Dufty, and yes he has played in NRL, but if you all remember during his first "full season" he was fatigued and made mistakes, lacked committment etc. A year as a DS player, starting the season in CC, developing his body for contact on a regular basis, would be more beneficial in the long run. If he kills it in CC we always have the 30th spot available up to and including the june 30 deadline. He already has a shoulder injury, i wouldn't risk permanent injury by rushing him in. I wonder if even he thinks he's ready.
