I'm not sure what the bloke above thinks, but I don't even see Reynolds as a ball player , let alone a ball playing lock

ET is a handy link between the forwards and backs and has decent hands

If Reynolds wants on the bus , he is going to have to play some decent footy and oust Marshall

Thread of bad ideas. Reynolds comes back on bench. If he finds form and benji needs a rest then 6. Not sure where this leaves et?

How about when Reynolds is fully fit we just have him as our five-eighth and Benji can play in ISP.

How about this one.....JRey to 6 Brooks 7 Godnet 9 and Benji 14
I know he's been going well but JRey is our future and they've trained the off season as such.
I think thats most likely
Godinet at 9? What about Liddle?

He'll be on the bench or starting with Benji on the bench. Alternatively, they may put him in ISP to get some match fitness for a game or 2 given he's barely played this year.

For mine he starts in ISP - gets match fit - comes into 1sts at five-eighth- Benji to bench.

Think that post was probably written before anyone knew how godawful, Godinet was. And maybe before we knew exactly when Liddle was coming back, although that was always inevitable.

ET will be in there. He'll either be moved to an edge at the expense of Rochow or he'll be moved back to lock with Eisenhuth going into the bench forward rotation. 0% chance Ivan sends him to reggies, he's a leader out there.

8 Taylor

:roll
Marshall did play fullback last year with Redcliffe with Gamble at 5/8 - until he was injured. He was good because he could read the game.
I was laughing more at Taylor and Lawrence in the front row and Liddle in the second row :lol:
I enjoy Cairnstigers enthusiasm though !

taylor and reynolds at 12 and 13 makes the pack way to small and ineffective going forward.

you would leave way to much work for the 3 other forwards to get us going forward

Sounds like a rugby league live 3 roster selection.

No chance.

Benji has hit a wall over the last 4 games. He has been outstanding and exceeded all expectations but when Reynolds is fully fit Benji is our bench utility and Reynolds is the 6.
Ivan will know the best way to work him back in but he is the best 6 at the club. Benji may come on and play 6 with Reynolds at 9 to rest Liddle for 25 minutes or so a game. I think that was the plan at the start of the season.

Benji has been good this season and is allowing brooks to play with much more freedom. He just needs to keep his game simple and get the basics right (kick for field position, defence) and the rest will flow on. He went away from that for a few weeks but that also coincided with our forwards getting beat. Benji behind a dominant forward pack is very dangerous....he knows where the space is, it’s instinctual. It’s when he tries to create the space when it’s not there he gets in trouble.

I maybe wrong but the grind of a season seems to be taking a toll. Bad decisions usually are due to fatigue. He has been good for Brooks though no doubt about it.
