Seibold said yesterday he only wants to use 1 interchange for the hooking rotation.

We could always get turps to bump his head into an opposition prop around the 25 minute mark every week and we get a HIA interchange. Melbourne do it all the time.

Nup, it will be a penalty to the other team for Turpin intentionally putting his head in a dangerous position.

whatever the consensus about what to call this thread.....all I can say is I can't wait for Turps to take on the warriors and watch with glee as he sizes up one of the warriors forwards and shirt-fronts the **** into the 2nd row of the stands....

Segwayaro would cover the halves as well if there's an injury. Not sure who covers the rest of the backline. Maybe MILF would drop back to fullback. Seems drastic though.

One thing i will say about Macca, he has always played his best for us when he has had pressure on his place. He absolutely has it now, be good to see how he responds.

If he gets his chance again, he probably will, nothing less than leading the team around win after win will save him.

He should only be allowed back in if he proves he can run faster than the other two.

Make the three have a foot race over 30mtrs.

He was superb when we were rumoured to be signing Smith.

Cam Smith is slower than both yet 10 times the footballer. Its whats between the ears that makes a good player.

Add in Roberts and you have a deal.

That's quite insulting to Macca. Just because he's a mediocre player doesn't make him thick as a plank. He seems quite bright to me.

Admittedly, speed is important. But more importantly, it's vision. Macca has very little of this. Turpin showed he can see the game unfold, save for his awful intercept pass, he was all over it. And Segey showed so much spark out of hooker in his stint, things we haven't seen from a hooker at the Broncos for over a decade.

Add in Roberts why? For a foot race for centre?

Who cares if he's fast, if he isn't up to playing for the team then it doesn't matter. He was dropped for a reason and that reason may not be visible to the fans, for example, you.

Not in terms of game intuition - he is a plank in that regard, no argument. Toughness? He is top notch.

Jeez how many times has he had that chance to perform?

He's been accurately identified to a tee - tackle bot, no intuition in attack.
