    Can agree with both of those JB. I dunno if it would make us that much more competitive but I'd be all for it for the reason you say

    I'm surprised Paul Turner hasn't been spoken about as a fullback option. He's doing a good job there at cup level. Give JC some genuine competition that isn't a fill-in.
    I was going to mention Turner as you have been saying how well he has been playing but I thought a tried and tested 1st grade fullback might be the better option right now.

    I'm also not suggesting JC has had his chance and "thank you next" but we need the safe option over the hype option.

    I think replacing Jwal negates some "six agains" when we are already on the back foot and gassed.

    Not sure if there is an answer for Clarke this year. SO he needs to be trained to do the job. From memory he wasn't a specialist 9 when we signed him either. Definitely what we are lagging this year.

    I would suggest that it would improve the team if we swapped Lui and Tino around. Lui does have good ball playing skills which were evident when he played lock at the Roosters. I would suggest that would have been his position at the Roosters if not for Radoey who is also a ball playing lock,
    It would give us quite a different point of difference in attack which is currently lacking as all the middles are just hitting up in the majority of middle plays.

    In respect of Turner, I am surprised he is not being used as a half for Tweed considering the lack of experience we have in the halves at the club. It would be good to have him given more exposure and experience to leading the team around the park as he does have that X factor about him with his step and pace and may be option down the track if he succeeds. More depth at half back in the club can only benefit the club as a whole

    I don't think Turner is really a halfback WD - he played 5/8 initially for Tweed and may end up back there once JC or Isaako eventually drops back, but he got moved to 1 and has played his best football there. IMO his skillset is that of a 1/6 or utility. Warriors even played him at centre once.

    Can anyone shed some light on Esan Marsters? Not named in extended squad, not named for Burleigh and didn't play for them last round. Unless he has some injury we don't know about he seems to have just disappeared

    Yeah thats interesting about Marsters mate, I seem to remember around the time Kelly had covid seeing one of the boys mocking him on social media about having it, but that was over 2 weeks ago so surely he'd be back now. There was also a video up on the Titans social media maybe in the last week or so where Toby and Marzhew were having a goalkicking competition for one of our sponsors, and Marsters was part of the video too. For all we know that could've been shot in the preseason though so might not be relevant, hopefully everything is allgood with him though.

    On that note, Ese Ese also isn't in the squad at all this week, he was one of the ones with Covid a few weeks ago so surely couldn't be from that? Did he pick up an injury in Cup last week?

    Didn't even think about Herman and no he didn't pick up an injury IIRC

    I think they might be just carrying extra outside backs in the extended squad for this weeks game since we've got Sami/Bk both with some niggles

    JC travelling with the team to Townsville but more likely to play with Tweed vs Blackhawks. Gotta love the headline on the news being Campbell dropped

    I'd love to see how he'd go at centre now I know he's previously filled in there before and there's been some defensive worries but hes been defending alot better this year and looks alot fitter might be the best way to get him some good 1 on 1 early ball. Also means the winger would be rushing in to help alot more should mean a few tries to marzhew long cutout pass by Sexton.

    I’d love to see how he could go out there for 1 game, but if it means Proctor in 2nd row then no thank you. Also Fifita defending Val Holmes would be a concern, he has been in great form to start the year. I don’t see why this would happen anyway when Thompson can just come onto the wing.
