    We are probably better off just putting a big body out there like Coen Hess or D Fifita rather than reach for the dregs

    If his body is holding together I wouldn't doubt it at all to be honest.

    I wouldn't rule out Holmes playing centre either.

    Nothing wrong with Ramien... just confirms how bad things were under Brown.

    Wasn't Brown's fault Ramien made 22 errors in 17 games, Ramien was unsettled from the get go because he felt he was on less than what he deserved money wise.

    Seve isn't even in first grade anymore, perhaps Moses Mbye or Morgan in the centres again?
    Either way current QLD outside back depth is the worst i can remember in at least 15 years

    Like Ramien, Brown is gone. Things were very bad under Brown. Standing in the centres without any ball sure didn't help either. A lot of players made a hell of a lot of mistakes last season.

    So far this year, not as many.

    He didn't get enough ball first part of the year but they made a conscious effort to give him more ball as the year wore on at the detriment to the natural flow of the attack and that when he was making 2-3 errors a game for a brief period. Like I said the issue was his contract, he was pushing for an upgrade before he even played a game and the club were contemplating it but when Daniel Saifiti made origin the cap situation changed and that upgrade was on the backburner, that's when Ramien had a couple of horrendous games because he was trying too hard to force the club back to the negotiating table

    No thanks, but then again, not alot of quality choices. If Mybe can learn from his mistakes last year, trying not to die or milk a penalty at the end of game, he might have to do. Heaven knows if Morgo's shoulders can hold up again this season

    If it makes you feel any better NSW are likely going to choose blokes that don't play centre as their centres
