So with Hiku going, thats a centre needed seeing as he replaced Evans there. Still think we would be better served putting Ratch there and buying a top full back but then again we need half a new team for next year so anything can happen

Huh?
How many fbs are there better than Ratchford whilst you could make a list as long a Pinnochio's nose of how many centres there are better than him!!

I'd say most other fullbacks in the league are better than Ratchford in that position. He can catch a ball, but his positional play in defence is awful. (and yes I did play at fullback). We have shipped in 30 and 40 points in the last two games, that should give some indication. I agree with the previous poster, Ratchford would be far better utilised in centre or halves.

Yes lets hope the new coach wants a full back who doesn't ponce about ambling from a poor position or thinking he's cool with one handed carries and actively (and shamefully) avoiding one on one tackles. He needs to move away from FB asap - he's a liabilty there.

Thanks Hatfield.

Re Ratchford.
He is indeed the most talented player in our team. Is he the ideal fullback?...perhaps not, but the point is...you put your best player in a position where they can get there hands on the ball....centre isn't one of those.

RD, I seem to remember conversations we've had when you've been adamant Ratch has to play at 6 as you want your best players with their hands on the ball - I always argued Full Back gave him that opportunity, you always disagreed!!

I still believe 6 to be the best position for Ratchford to be more specific, but if playing fb as a pivot will put him in a position to get his hands on the the ball, then I relent...!
However I hate his one hand ball carries that heightens a knock on off his own knee than he gets from a forced error.
