I've said my piece but he's a ****in Shark now. Gotta support the **** till he gets the punt

would not the correct saying be; I have had my say, aka, have voiced my opinion or voiced my concern.

Perhaps you were thinking of, "I have made my peace" ie; got your sins, troubles, worries out in the open.

Just saying

Andrew Johns, Trent Barrett and Brad Fittler have all said in recent history that there is little difference between 6/7 these days, hence why they're referred to as the "halves". Good luck to all men vying for a spot next to Todd.

But there's a difference between individual players right? Some are more x-factor off the cuff guys and some are more structured guys with better leadership skills. Regardless of which number they wear, a balanced pairing will consist of one of both types of player.

Yes but, thats where someone who plays 5/8 can play half back. Its the same position just opposite sides of the field. its the individuals game that differs, not the requirements of the position

Yeah but what we've been saying when we say one is a half back and one is a 5/8, is that one is an organiser that passes and kicks more, and the other has x-factor and probably takes the line on more.

At least that's what I mean.

With my preferred approach of having a 5/8 on one side and Graham on the other, that is what I mean. Say Carney and 5/8 are either side of the ruck providing a bit more unscripted play, and a half back or tight half or controlling half or whatever stays around the middle and gives a bit of structure. Examples of guys like this are Noddy, Cronk, Pearce etc. Examples of the 5/8's I'm talking about are Benji, Kelly, Carney.

Nope. There's definitely a phrase "I've said my piece". And I'm not a moron; I never get homophones mixed up.

Don't believe me? Go to town on google you'll find plenty of discussion

Under this thinking ....Perhaps we might see a more controlled .. Take charge carney for the sharks... He might take on the role of the 7 in your words so as to allow Kelly to play his more natural game. I would like to see carney play his natural game even if that means having a more mature 7 in robson ... I've got a strange feeling flanno might have robson in there somewhere..
