Time to get started
It’s time to throw the cash at DCE imo. Get another decent HB and the premiership is ours.
Our halves can show spark, but seriously can we get a controlling halfback and put Niko back to bench please as spark.
What cash? Can't see us having that much money to spend
I'd say we have bigger issues than a lack of a halfback.
Anyone think one of Boyd or Paix ready for the leap next year maybe ?
I think that's the biggest issue. The rest stems from experience and injuries IMO.
The preseason and trials are the only real way to tell that for next year.
DCE is under contract for another 6 years ... We can't throw cash at him
This is classic. Our forwards were absolutely dominated in every way yesterday, but our issue is halfback.
But everyone can see our forward pack is gonna and already can be lethal. Losing a motor like joe offa early yesterday had a massive effect on the forward battle.
Warming more to the idea of Bird to hooker for the time being.
Absolutley. I love TPJ, but the bloke can be an absolute idiot sometimes and when he starts losing his cool he becomes a liability. I think how he has played this year in big games, he was the biggest disappointment for me yesterday. We needed him to stand up and show what he is made of and he didnt. Frizzell just kept busting through him all the time. Once he brings that consistency of performance to his game when it matters he is going to be the best forward in the game.
Yeah, this. Our forwards got pumped yesterday, but I have no concerns with that area in the future. HB has been an issue all year and remains one atm.......O'Sullivan depending of course.
A shake up is certainly needed IMO. Fortunately the return of Gillette and a healthy Bird should supply that for the most part.
Left field idea: we need a bit of spark from our hooker, Andrew is a sound player with good defense but it's time to change it up.
Get Niko to play hooker, has speed to burn through the middle. Our version of Cook!
Halfback: time for Tanah Boyd or Sullivan to be thrown in to gel with the young team we have.
Be nice to field this team
10 Big O
Bird (see how he goes during preseason)
Luckily that team has zero chance of running out onto the field
My 2019 team would be
1. D. Boyd/ Isakko
5. Isakko/ D. Boyd
7. T. Boyd/ O’Sullivan
If we were serious about winning next year we would recruit an experienced 7. O'Sullivan will have to do.. Means we'd most likely keep Boyd at fullback
This line up seems sensible.
1. Darius Boyd
2. Corey Oates
3. Jack Bird
4. James Roberts
5. Jamayne Isaako
6. Anthony Milford
7. Sean O'Sullivan
8. Matthew Lodge
9. Andrew McCullough
10. Josh McGuire
11. Jaydn Su'a
12. Matt Gillett
13. Tevita Pangai Junior
14. Kodi Nikorima
15. Alex Glenn
16. Joe Ofahengaue
17. Payne Haas
18. Kotoni Staggs
19. David Fifita
20. Patrick Mago
21. Patrick Carrigan
I think you meant to put this in 2019 lineup.
