I think it's the best squad we have had for years and with a little tinkering we have players that can cover a number of positions.
That's great for the supporters but could be a problem for C C.
Do you think he will have his first 17 set in stone or will he be prepared to mix it about a little in the early part of the season.
The pack seems pretty straight forward, but with so many options in the backs getting the right combinations could prove difficult.

I don't see a problem.
It isn't a 17 man game now. If you want to get to top 5 you need platers who can come in with equal skills.

Half backs need to be settled and maybe even 1, 6, 7 and 9/14 but even then as long as they train all the combinations it should be fine.
I'd rather have it thus way.

I would to pop start. Are you of the opinion that Miller and Brough will be that h/b combo leaving 3 choices for the full back spot.

I'd have thought the obvious half back combo would be Brough at 6 and Hampshire at 7.

Chris Chester's problem's are put in focus by the First day of Advent tweet from Trinity Heritage.

Listing our best full backs over the years, it reveals that in 1967 we had Gerry Round, Don Metcalfe, Geoff Wraith and Gary Cooper. These are among the best full backs ever to grace the game, all with particular great strengths and very few weaknesses. A great problem to have and one Chris Chester can only dream of having, but in comparison Jowitt/ Hampshire and Brough/ Miller is a walk in the park.

More than likely Miller/Brough.

You would?

I'd have said Brougg/Miller without doubt, Hampshire may even be behind Reynolds as a HB.

Even the 3/4 line doesn't pick itself really, thankless task for Chester at the Bronco's.

Miller plays for me. Brough and Hampshire competing.
But RH gets a nod at Full back too.
Having all 3 in the line will be massive for us.

Miller nailed on at stand off
Brough at scrum half

I think the main aspect of mystery is who will play fb
I'd love to see max nail that position but watching him last year I'm not sure

My head says Hampshire at fb

Needs big year from Randall too
Any one else think he looked like he never properly recovered from the pre season injury he picked up?
