Again? Has Ropati already played fullback for the Kiwis? The only fullback debacle I remember was Vagana's effort a few years back.

I would have Luke Covell at fullback, and Ropati has played fullback for the kiwi's and was very average.

it was last years anzac test, webb was out with a bulging disc and ropati scored two tries, his defence was to be questioned though.

it is still the only test ropati has played

Ropati would have gotten the job most likely. Possibly even moving him to five eight with Vagana dropping back. Ah well doesn't matter Webb is there. Definitely got a lack of depth in the position though.

i reckon they wouldve went with a couple of utilites who have played there b4.
ie motu tony or robbie paul. they arent natural fullbacks but they play a similar game to webby.

i wouldnt be too worried if webby got injured end of year. of course i would prefer webb there since he is our best option.

I think Ropati could become a very good Fullback. I know we are talking about the kiwi's but if I remember correctly, Ivan Cleary used to play fullback ok.

Sorry what i was trying to say is that Ivan is Jerome coach (long term here)and that i am sure he could teach Jerome a hell of alot about fullback.
