6 could potentially be a fullback too but for centre I thought maybe a mix of different styles in the back might be nice
Yeah. I’d prefer a fullback at 6, and the option to play a lock at fullback.

This is acceptable. So long as the locks played fullback at some point early in their careers and vice-versa

Q Cup PotY Taine Tuaupiki highlight reel. He signed with with the Warriors.

Some really nice touches form Josh Rogers in this one @bort.

I also have a soft spot for the Burleigh #7 (Hamilton) because I played with his dad.

Looks like Josh has bulked up a bit

Between Taine, Josh and Guy they really had a spine going, is Guy contracted anywhere/doing a pre season anywhere?

Josh did pre-season with Titans last year but not sure he has anything again

Yeah he’s a unit these days. Really calm player too. Unfortunately for Guy he never bulked up, and that’s probably what’s kept him from getting a real shot. Similar to Jack A. Williams imo.

Titans invited half of South East Qld as T&T, but not Josh. At one point I though I was going to get a call.

Spot on
Thanks Wiz.

To save everyone giving Fox free clicks... what Bennett is saying is that that the SoO eligibility rules should stay the same, but the wants to remove the rule banning players from playing SoO if they have played for another tier 1 country.

“We have to acknowledge where international football is heading.

“We had more than 600,000 people who got up in the middle of the night to watch that game.

“That shows there is a market for it, and we are in the entertainment business.”’

“What I’m saying is the criteria to play for Queensland and NSW must not change,” he said.

“But what should change is that players should be available for selection for a whole lot of countries outside Australia.

“Victor Radley should be allowed to play for NSW and also play for England. But he will never play for Australia.

“He made that choice. But he still ticks all the boxes to play Origin because he grew up playing his football in NSW.

“What a lot of people seem to be struggling to understand is that these players like Junior Paulo and Jarome Luai and Brian To’o, they’ve all grown up in Sydney.

“So under the criteria as it is now they qualify for Origin."
