You could play Yeo at 13, Martin left and Murray right and put a Young or Ola on the bench to throw on either side for a bit.
That's if Lane wasn't available as a very competent left edge starter.

Kind of weird how many NSW eligible edges are right side players at club level though...
Yeah I think it would be those 3 starting, then likely Koloamatangi on the bench as he would be versatile in the middle also.

It could have something to do with a dominant right hand carry? If you relate to centres too, many of the ones in contention for NSW rep roles are right edge players too. Crichton, Staggs, Lomax, Ramien.

NSWelshman need to practice The Stranger more to strengthen up that left hand

Teig wants to play for the Sharks forever. I don't think his fairly average coach of an uncle is going to make that massive of a difference in enticing him to switch colours as long as our $offer is fair and in the ball park which I would imagine it is going to be.

The culture and working environment at the Sharks is a big deal to the players and they all get along - we haven't needed to fight a big battle (at least not publicly) to extend a players contract in the Fitz era and anyone we have lost along the way to another club has not really been a key Top 17 player or anything.

I feel Teig is more likely to stay than not to stay and this is just a bit of pot stirring

Hudson Young another

I think Freddie would have a good hard look at all of them for a left edge spot before Wilton if he was picking an Origin team tomorrow. (Well, okay, not Lane, but he does beat him for the jersey currently if healthy).
Pretty sure Martin has played left when Kikau off.

Think both Ola and Koloa are eligible as haven't played for first teir internationals.
Think Ola opted himself out last year to concentrate on Internationals
Hudson Young doesn't wipe Teigs pooper shooter after a sloppy one, bloke is flop

My SC really needed him to score but shoutout to this bloke who did a tonne of work and probably outshone Nikora if not for his beast if a hit

2nd most meters for us (173m, 3 less than Talakai for 1 less run)
Most pcm (62)
2nd most tackles (41, 2 miss)

He was just giving me a friendly nudge and reminder of a player i know had a strong game but for whatever reason my eyes glossed over

He didn't dump a bucketload of cash at my door I promise...

maybe some Toup Kitchen vouchers but hey at least I watched the game aye Ms Sims

Sorry Will Kennedy but someone had to make way - it was the right thing to do!
