Coaches should pick the best team which doesn't always mean picking the best players.

See no sense in moving Sarge to the wing when he's barely played there in his career. Also see no sense in bringing him back in at right centre when Hank is playing well, is kicking well and will be growing in confidence.


Origin disagrees. This year alone we've seen:

Ben Hunt play 9
Jack Wrighton to centre
Tommy Turbo to centre
Morgan to centre
Jai Arrow to prop
Mmbye to interchange 9

And this is at the highest level.

I think there'a a firm argument (as bought into by SOO) that fielding better players is better. Sarge for me is better than Marshall.


Its always an argument at SOO time, players out of position and the pundits view is you get you best players out on the pitch,

Spot on.

The first NSW try is a perfect example with Trbojevic (naturally a FB), but playing at Centre challenging for a up and under miles away from where he should have been.

Different situation, but if you put Sarge on the wing the team could be quite fluid with Sarge dropping to FB to execute 'the move' and ZH on the wing etc. It keeps teams guessing and both are good enough players to make it work too.


I actually like this idea. With Hardaker and Sarge interchanging for different plays. Good shout.

I think its fair to say though that the quality of SOO athletes is on another level to that which you see in SL. Far more able to thrive in different positions.

Plus Sarge has always looked very uncomfortable on the right.

It's the principle which remains the same.

I have no reason to think that Sarge would make a better window than Marshall. Would he have scored LM's try against the Giants? Anyway, for better or worse, Sarge is halfway out of the door now. Life without him beckons.
