Probably controversial I know but I'd still play Miller at 7 ahead of Cross.

Cross is excellent at being in the right place to support the man with the ball which is why after the first game I had him to finish top try scorer. But he doesn't do the half backs job. Miller will pass and kick for others which is more the point of the role

The problem is, I'm not sure where I'd play him but he does warrant a place. What with the loose forward role being an almost redundant position, and the size we have across the rest of the part we might as well put 13 on his back instead of Muranka and just have him following the guys

What Cross has is the pace that Miller doesn't.
As Jemmo said Cross is great on the shoulder for the pass.
He however showed in a few games that he can burrow for tries off his own bat.

If he has deficiencies in passing/setting up/organising, then I would be tempted to coach him in these areas so he is the complete package.

He is a much more dynamic and exciting player than Miller or Hedges and that kind of player, like Charlie Martin, is what fans come to watch and what inspires other players to join in and do their best.

Miller is OK and has potential, no doubt and at the end of the day it is a question of who is the more effective.
We don't really know yet. Mr T will be giving all three their chance, but for me I would I would not put them in Hedges, Miller, Cross order if I was Mr T because as Jemmo says where does Cross go?
Cross is the incumbent, let him blossom until such time as we genuinely need to change.

Some things develop by accident ... serendipity if you like.

Sure he has played full back in Australia & Miller has played 13 there also but I will stand corrected .
Lets hope Jordie sorts out his tackling technique as I do not think we have seen the best of him.

I can't think of any Jordon Hedges stand out performances.

I think his scrum half position is under serious threat from Kieran Cross after his performances over the past couple of weeks. His style is ideally suited for backing up a strong pack, either looking for offloads or quick play-the-balls.

I'd be looking at trying JH at loose forward when he's available again.

Don't see why KC should have to make way. Surely we need some competition for places, especially in the half backs where we've really struggled over the past couple of seasons.

I do not think KC's place is under threat , he must be one of the first names on the team sheet.
I would play KK at 13 !
We will see what happens when JH's suspension is over .

Whoose no sarcasm at all check out how Weighman set out the post by using the players he refers to by their INITIALS hence the INITIAL ASSESSMENT pun.

Bloody hell :shock:
