1st friendly 3 weeks tomorrow. I think we only have the two so feels a bit light vs previous years. How many weeks until Jones joins us?

Cannot recall seeing CT play any NRL games at FB. He only played about a dozen first team games or so in his combined 4 seasons for NZ Warriors and Newcastle. At the Warriors he played predominantly in their youth team( NYC) at No 6 in his 3 seasons there although he did play full FB occasionally.

For the season at Newcastle he was tried unsuccessfully at centre where his defence let him down. Most of his matches were in their reserve team where he played at No 6.

I think we may see Adam Swift at full back for some games if Shaul is injured or left out because of form

Why? :?

Is this because 6 years ago, he played a few games at FB for Whitehaven, or am I missing something?

We do Seem to have an embarrassment of riches in the backs at the moment.

Assuming Sneyd & Kelly fit, then they play HB.

Centres - Tuimavave, Griffin, Fonua & Conner - possibly in that order ?

Wing - Naulago, Swift, Fonua, Faraimo, Dawson Jones.

FB - Shaul

Fonua will play whenever fit, so by my reckoning we have at least one back too many - even allowing for one out with injury.

Can't really imagine any of those not in the first team playing reserve grade more than occasionally - I suspect the odd one ( or two ) might be loaned out if all fit after pre-season.

Cant see Dawson getting a look in and Griffin is likely to start the season on the bench as the replacement second row.

If all fit the team really picks itself with the exception of Adam Swift on the left wing replacing Faraimo.
The bench likely to be Griffin,Connor,plus two front rows.Bowden has to step up otherwise could loose his place.
