If the forwards continue to perform the way they have been, he'll be fine. Just needs to be solid under the high ball and link up for backline plays close to the line

Good luck to him, its the opportunity every young player hopes for.

He was killing it at the end of last year, i thought even more so than Brooks. Perhaps went off the boil after Tedesco exploded this year and he saw little hope, he has a chance now though.

Good luck to the young fellas!

Wow a fullback for a fullback. Had a feeling this would be the go for Potter. I get the feeling he really rates Rowe (given his selection in the 9's).

Very deserving of a chance imo. Was a big part of the NYC success in the past couple of years.
Has alot of speed. I like the way he runs full throttle into the defense. Tough little player now gets his chance to prove his value on the big stage. Probably not much of a future at Wests but the rest of the NRL will see him. Good luck Kurtis.

Very brave call by Pots. JT has arguably the best all round kicking game in the NRL, he will be tested big time. In Pots defense he probably wants to keep the disruptions to a minimum but I can see Rowe being well out of his depth,hope he puts egg on my face.

On a plus side he is one of a few players who could go close to Teddy in a foot race

Congratulations on your selection Kurt. As Jack Gibson used to say, "you will do good"

Lets hope we can roll through the cowboys and give him half a chance... if its a night where we struggle to work it out of our 20 JT will put him to the torch, if it the other way around though and JT is kicking often from deep inside his own half Kurtis' night becomes a whole lot easier.

Good luck to him, hope he proves he can hold the spot down until Teddy returns.

sort of surprised by this one.. even everyone here had nofo and simona as their fullbacks but potter replaced fullback with another fullback whereas the fans didn't.

things are changing big time here. EXCELLENT!

rip in kid! best of luck

I'm surprised by the call but at least potter has the balls to make it.

You blokes realise this isn't for one game - It's gonna be for the next 6 or so.

If he kills it it might also be a shrewd ploy to bring Tedescos price down a bit.. :roll

Good luck to him though - reckon he'll be fine.
