I Like Mills & would prefer leutele to partner him as our centres next season, but Pickerd I think could be pushing for a wing spot during next season.

Yeah I think it might be 2 seasons until he is physically ready for a centre spot but he could be pushing for a wing or fullback spot next season. He reminds me so much of kevin locke.

I really really rate him. I think he is a much better prospect than Mills.

Again he will be brought into first grade through wing/fullback i reckon due to his lack of size. By the end of his career I see him having played a role like ET's where he was a great option on the wing, at fullback and in the centres. Hopefully he can go anywhere near the great mans achievements but I'm not going to put that on him.

I haven't seen much of him im just going by B&B's suggestion that fullback is his best position

So do we think we'll see him get a crack at firsts this year?

Also I find it interesting that he was named at fullback again in the NYC trials, I would think or maybe I was hoping he would go to the centres this year so he can go back to fine tuning his craft for at the least when Best leaves next year ?

In saying that he was very good at fullback last year for us.

I think he will play a game or 2. Not too many unless Gards picks up a serious injury early in the season.

He will get a crack if he plays as good as last year and tbh with our big 4 chad, mills, friz and peachey out of the 20's he should become one of the top players in the comp.
