Bunty should take Tui's place on the bench, that's if we wanted to be in line with current and traditional use of the bench. A combination of 3 props/backrowers and a hooker...not 2 props, a hooker and winger who plays 30 seconds.

No-ones told Cappy 3 of a kind beats a pair.

That's a small bench against a big Canberra pack

That would be the other bonus if tui were to start at 6 and tommy on the bench- we wouldn't need to carry a tevega or Roche type and could go with another big bopper.
Seems a better balance to me.

I see Big Jim has said that Tui is here long term and a replacement for Thomas hence that is why they have let Thomas go a year early.If that's the case and I think it is best to put Tui to 6 now ( for Canberra) and for the rest of the season.We won't win the comp this year with Thomas at 6 so we might as well bite the bullet and get Tui some practice for next year.
Tuimoala Lolohea to five-eighth right now sounds good in theory but we still have to win games. While we're a chance of making the 8 we must play our strongest team. Wouldnt make sense to start planning for next year while we can still realistically play finals footy...

Our guys are gonna have their work cut out for them in the middle.
 
Cappy confirms Big Jims comments about future of Tui at 6 but wants to "continue his development at 6" by playing him at Wing/fullback/bench utility/bench warmer spare part.What a load of crap.
Not to mention still not having four big forwards on the bench.Cappy is either stupid or stubborn or both.
I am 50/50 at the moment on Cappy but if they don't win this week I am changing to the get rid of him crew.
If it works out this week great if not Cappy you are a knob.
Mate, stop sitting on the fence. McCrappy is fast becoming the John Mitchell of Rugby League.. He speaks in tongues and will fall to the victim of his own ill logic.
 
Tui brings more options than jazz. As long as he gets some decent game time happy with him on the bench. Jazz a good player with a big ticker but we need size on the bench. Who is available tho? If Sipley is then why not him chappy

I can see Croker putting in a few deft kicks behind Vatuvei over the weekend.

Any sydneysiders going to Canberra for the game?
 
That bench. Good Ol 'Cappy Logic'.

Brodene's hopefully closer than they're letting on.
Brodene to start, Bunty to bench.

Sorry mate you are wrong there.
Jazz makes metres forward Tui loses ground and crabs sideways.

Rapana will have an absolute field day with Manu if Croker was putting kicks over the top. Leuia vs Kata will be interesting.

I mean as a utility tui can cover the whole backline an push Tommy to cover Luke if need be. Jazz a great player but if you think he brings more to the team then tui well you are wrong my friend even with tuis at times crabbing/poor d.
