True, if it was him we'd probably still see a Williams/Colquhoun/McInnes spend some time there.Probably don't want Wade playing 80 these days tbh. Imo one of those guys probably gets minutes if either of Briton/Teig don't play.
I think trial #1 was likely an addition for Jesse to see if he can be that "4th back rower". He has the motor, and while imo his long-term future is as a middle, having do spot duty at back row would be a good way to get him NRL experience.
It also raises the question of whether or not you want Wade playing on the right side if Briton is the guy out. If the left edge is Teig's spot, surely we should be done with the "move Teig to the right so Wade can play left" business.
I do agree we shouldn't move Teig right so Wade might only see decent edge minutes if injury on the left, unless he is comfortable spending some time on his non-preferred edge
