    Sorry wrong player, mybad

    But the point remains Jennings could have set his winger up on a few occasions that I saw and got tackled with the ball trying to beat his opponent instead of passing

    I really dont like him playing inside Semi given how many tries Semi scored last season. However in BA we trust

    As long as Jennings is scoring the tries himself, I don't really care.

    Isn't the rhs the harder side to defend on? . Semi would struggle on the right

    Parra 47 you have Faraimo ahead of taka, you've lost it.
    Cheng I think semi is actually one of, if not the best defensive wingers in the game. His decision making and commitment to tackles are amazing. Either way and outside backs are all good defensive and offensive players and they will adapt to either side. Last year we had one of the worst centre/wing combos in the comp, now we are up there with Manly as close to the best.

    Yeah nah. Not a full time trainer we'll put on of Schule or Toutai at fullback who have been training full time there before we even think of putting Gardner there. Schulte has been training for the wenty team at fullback so it looks like whilst Moss is out he has the inside running.

    Good side, but I think Gutho to the wing and Taka into the centres.

    Hoppa would be the slowest winger in the world. I wouldn't pass to him, either.

    I wouldn't play Taka on the wing and I think Gutherson will turn out to be a much better centre than Taka so for mine there is no spot for him. Just my opinion.

    Fair enough, but even if Gutherson became tahu level he would be maybe 2-3x better than Taka. Taka is about 10x better than Faraimo as it is and gutherson has never started in the centres in the NRL. I respect you're allowed an opinion, it just my opinion that you are watching the game with blinkers on or you have little understanding of rugby league.

    Schute is probably ahead of Farimo as well.

    I like the way the kid moves in some of those videos online, light on his feet and good quick feet

    I'd hazard a guess and say that Morgan and possibly Toutai are in front of Faraimo for a first grade spot.

    If fit rnd one backline without any doubts-
    1Gordon
    2Semi
    3Jennings
    4Taka
    5Gutherson

    Everyone else will have to force there way in - Hope for bad form or injuries.But that is our best backline for now......

    I disagree

    I actually think buretta is a better defender. Semi, i reckon can't read the play and gets out of icky situations with his physical talents

    Gutherson Started the 2015 season at centre for Manly before being injured. But don't let facts get in the way of your argument.
    I've been a passionate rugby league fan since 1986, watching every game I can and I've not missed a single copy of rugby league week or big league in all those years.
    I've also played the game and been involved with my local club for the past 10 years and been coaching for the past 4 years.
    But because I have a different opinion to you I must have little understanding of rugby league.... :roll:
