There is no obvious replacement fullback waiting in the wings. As Rowe is injured. Moses has played fullback. But probably to bigger ask to put him there at NRL level. It was the experienced guys that got us home tonight.

Jy Hitchox played good in NSW Cup today...

He defence was good and he has speed and I believe could be a good replacement for Teddy.

he will be needed next week to cover Farah for at least part of the game, so maybe put Moses on the bench so he can go to no1 when Blake moves up to no9.

As for tonight, I thought he was great, but the Raiders were brain dead in not at least bombing him a few times

Farah being out is what will make it tough for Potter. But i honestly feel we have a tremendously underrated player in Jarrod Farlow who would do a great job at 9. He will tackle his butt off, give good service and has the footwork and speed to be a danger....not to mention he is a smart footballer too.

Halatau on the bench for a sharp spell and all is good.

What a gun player he is I think he should stay at fullback and hopefully we re sign him to a long term contract.

I think he'll be fullback for the rest of the year.

Austin was amazing and his positional play at Fullback was awesome you would of sworn he played there before the way he carried himself tonight.

Austin looks fitter/stronger now than he did at the beginning of the season. He was still going hard at the end of the game. Doesn't seem to ever run out of puff.

Blake did very well for someone who is not a natural fullback. He does lack the genuine threatening speed of a fullback which may count against him being named there for next week. But he's overall play was pretty good.

I think he has to be our fullback. He is wasted on the bench and he can certainly play the position.

I can't believe how seamlessly Austin played at full back tonight. my only concern is how he would go in the weekly grind in that position. I'm a massive mosses fan but who knows how good Austin would go there. Tough one for potter

I thought Austins eagerness and trying to cover the left and right player caught him out a little, but I feel sorry for the bloke. I would be a nervous wreck going in to highly specialised positions like the 9 and 1, when he has been mostly playing the 6 and he covered both like a champ. He has a footy brain for sure.

His positional play was awesome for a first timer and I am hoping he can learn real quick from the expected mistakes he made today.

I am in awe of how he just jumps in to a position and gives some of the regulars in NRL in those positions a show.

austin is a good player but hes over-rated on the boards
Please :crazy
Can i double "please" that..

Caught out a lot????? His positional play won us the game
he was caught out a few times go back and watch but its to be expected
love how so many of u guys used to hate sheens for playing people out of postion but u all want austinb at fb wtf

and im sure the next halfs we go against will prove austin isnt a fullback
Haha yes.

Mccrone and Campese were pretty horrible.

We defended well for that 10mins on our own line but in reality, the pressure wasn't what it could have been, because their halves weren't choosing the right options
