Dykes is going to lose a whole year of development. I'd rather he comes back and works on developing as a 1/6 tbh. If Nicho starts chewing up a fair chunk of cap space it would be nice to know we have options in the spine if someone gets priced out. We currently don't know who would partner Nicho best long term. Trindall is obviously the first choice, but it could easily end up being Dykes or Puru. It may even be that we extend Moylan for another 3 years.

Hopefully longer.

I was half being a smart ass but is there no conflict of interest?
She's on our board to help us do well and sponsors them for a logo to be seen when they are constantly in the news for poor performance and hammer attacks. Very different interests.

1) Leave him at centre, the defence was good last year and 1 mistake this week isn't the end of the world. They'll keep working on it and it'll be fine, got another 23 rounds to go. In attack the get out of trouble runs he takes no other centre we have can do what he does consistently then back it up with the ball skills he has at the other end. Him and Ramien were starved of early ball in the attacking end when Hynes was out and 1 game back and they've touched the ball more than the 3 games before combined.

2) As long as his body holds up, we all know what were gonna get with him, he compliments Hynes and lets him be who he is. I don't think its worth risking Hynes not playing to his full potential in a comp game just to see how someone else goes. Also Trindall and Hynes both play right side so moving one to the left will just increase the defensive issues on that side, I'm sure Trindall has trained there but games are very different.

3) If he's not he's in the top 3 at the minute easily. Poor attempt on Hunt but besides that his game was hard to fault.

My question for you.
I know the Jets play at Henson and I don't want them moving from there, but do you think when both them and Sharks have home games, the game times should accomodate each other to have the best chance of watching the 3 grades or just tough luck pick one or the other? for example Newtown at 12. 21s at 3 then 1st grade at 5:30. Gives fans time to get from Henson to Shark Park if they want to watch all grades

1) we don't have a any better option right now and he's pretty damaging on the edge too. Just needs more ball.

2) look if it works it works, I am not a big fan of Moylan that much anymore but if Hynes wants him then then Hynes gets him there. But I'm worried about the better teams putting the pressure on Hynes with Moylan just taking a back seat. Could we be stunting Trindalls growth?

3. Not yet, but he's gonna give Cleary a run for his money this year.

Question for the podcast:

With the new concussion protocols and the NRL’s stance of greatly minimising knocks to the head, is there a danger of the game becoming so sanitised that it’s survival as a contact sport is doomed?
