Like the look of this. Good to see Omar get another go - but probably also means the Fish is still not fit.

Not 100% sure about Locke at FB though - think we need someone faster. I mean he can't even outrun an old codger like Matty Bowen.... ;)

Yeah Fish still injured. Luck says he (Luck) wont be taking a needle from here on in, if hes unfit or has any niggles he wont play. Lockes hammy strain towards the end of the cowboys game was nothing serious suposedly.. so yeah hes just too slow :p

Dear Bluey,
Please keep Godinet in the 17 you moron. Time and time again one of the backs has been injured in the game leading to big player shuffled mid game. Godinet provides good utility value, and if you want to rest Friend who is an 80 minute player, please have the sense to put Godinet there who has shown some good touches at hooker.

Yours Sincerely,
Someone who thinks you are out of your depth in the NRL.

I would think Godinet is there to cover fullback if Locke goes down, and if the last game showed us anything, it was that Friend needs to be on for 80 minutes.

I would think that Godinet is cover for the halves, hooker and fullback. He provides good utility value. He wouldnt be there to cover one specific position - how many times have you seen Fisiiahi named in the 17 just to cover fullback? We need a utility on the bench. It basically scares me each time we go with 4 forwards on the bench and then to see a backline player look injured. Friend may have shown us that he needs to be on the field for 80 minutes, pity Bluey doesnt think that.

Thats the thing, he's not in the 17, he's 18th man, so he will travel with the team in case he's needed to cover for someone, Locke and Hurrell showed niggles.

I'm sure you've explained this before, but why do you think he's out of his depth at hooker? I think he's gone well there the few times we've seen him.

i think bluey might learn fast. luck says friend wasnt happy about being benched. imo if friends playing 80 theres no reason to have godinet in the 17

But surely if Locke gets injured we'd put Maloney at fullback, then Mateo goes into halves, Rapira covers second row, Brown replaces Friend who can't possibly be fit enough to play 80 minute,s and Godinet stays at 18th man

Yours sincerly
Someone who shouldn't be coaching in the NRL ;)

Hence why my first post stated that he needs to be in the 17 on gameday.

If Locke was injured during the game, i'd say Omar to FB, Brown to center and Hurrell to wing....Godinet would only come into the side if locke or Hurrell couldn't play.

It'll actually be Maloney to fullback, Godinet to 5/8th.

Your first post said he needs to stay in the 17, when he was never in the 17 to start with, but whatever, not important.

Why?...Maloney was only forced to fullback because both our wingers didn't have the skill to cover...sad but true.
