Time has now come for Connor to be given the full back role.
He’s our most talented player, who needs his hands on the ball as much as possible. He’s wasted at centre.
Shaul can go to the wing and give us some much needed pace out wide.

Just think nowadays, a clubs best player is often the fullback, especially in the NRL.
Connor could chime in and give some great passes out. He’s great under the high ball as well. Might even mean we had a plan B.
Could give us loads of options if he was our third pivot.
Shaul can use his pace on the wing and still make metres out of backfield.
No chance of happening though, even though it should.

Shaul is never a winger. Play him full back or not at all.

He is not a tackle machine but would make a very good modern 9 and offer us a real running threat from acting half

Shaul played hooker most of his junior life
Struggles with tackling though

Connor always at 6
I have lost interest

I never understand these kinds of comments, you need your most intelligent rugby player and arguably best passer playing at hooker, Shaul is neither of those. Just because he's good at scooting doesn't mean he'll make a good 1st grade hooker

houghton's passing is pretty average. It was noticeable on Saturday how much better the ball out of dummy half was when litten went there

Littens passing from dummy half was very good. He’s earned a shot for next year.
If not, I give up to be honest

Why do you need your best passer of the ball playing 9? Houghtons passing is hardly inspiring.
If you cant pick a ball up off the floor and pass two to 3 metres to a team mate then you really dont want to be playing R/L
The game is changing.We have been used to Danny Houghton at 9 as a tackle machine but the best nines in Super League are runners not tacklers.
Jezz litten is too lightweight at the moment and if we do go with Connor at Full back then for me Shaul would make a good running 9.
