thinking about next seasons wing spot...

do you think they will go with murphy or mcintosh for that wing spot thats up for grabs?

the ever reliable murphy got injured last season and mcintosh came in to fill his space, got better with every game and scored plenty of tries...something murphy does too..

will be interesting battle between these two for next season who gets that spot, good to have competition for places in anycase

I think Murphy will get the shirt, both will get an opportunity pre season then go from there. Darnell really kicked on second half of the season, looking forward to seeing him progress this time around.

McIntosh for sure over Murphy. They offer similar amounts, one better defensively (Murphy) other better in attack (McIntosh), you go with the player who is still improving and on his way up, Murphy should just be cover this year.

I would rather see mackintosh play there. Mackintosh is a decent defender- certainly good enough for that position and
better in attack.

murphy has scored plenty of tries to give him credit for his attack too...

will be interesting pre season... could see mcintosh overtaking him if he continues on an upward curve which you would expect with him being young

something our team has lacked is pace-
Murphy doesn't score from pace- he's scored from good positioning- something that mackintosh can bring is pace. Murphy needs to make way for the new generation...

McIntosh for me, it's his shirt to lose really, stepped up well last season and in my opinion is one of the first names on the teamsheet now.
Murphy has been a great servant to us and is still a great option for cover.

Murphy is still one of my favourite players, but McIntosh has shown quality and should continue to improve.
It's a brilliant selection headache to have for Stone.
Whoever performs better in training and pre season takes the spot for me, though I do think Murphy will be more suited against the strong runners and MacIntosh against the more pacey players.

back line of

mamo

mcintosh/murphy
turner
cudjoe
mcgillvary


like the look of that back line, mamo hopefully fit and raring to go with a pre season under his belt, same goes for turner who arrived mid season.

cudjoe had an op early doors end of last season so should also be ready for pre season.

murphy had an op too.

mcgillvary is a star as we all know, showcasing himself on the world cup stage..nrl clubs interested but doubt he would go over there.

all that back line fit and raring to go is as good as any on the super league
