Channel 9's Danny Weidler just reported on channel 9 sport that with Wade McKinnon off to the UK next season, there is rumour that Tim Sheens is toying with the idea of shifting Marshall to fullback next season.

Could mean a halves combo of Lui/Moltzen if it did happen.

I think you made it up. Benji should remain at 6 although he'd probably kill it at 1.

Can't believe so called journalists can report on rumours. Anyone can be a reporter these days.... he probably heard it on this forum.

Would it really hurt for one game? IMO give it a go.

Wouldn't surprise me at all. First it was "Morris can become our Cooper Cronk", then it was "Benji could become one of the all time great halfbacks", then it was "I'm looking at moving Lawrence to five eighth, alongside Benji at half", then it was "Wade is at fullback because he can't play in the centres, otherwise Moltzen would be our first option at fullback" - Geez when is it ever gonna end???

Like most mail only 50% has truth in it.....but if it did happen i think benji could kill it plenty of room to move.

It wouldnt bother me i just follow the team not try and be the coach.

I still have visions of Benji briefly at fullback a few years back. Let the ball bounce & Brett Stewart leapt
over him & scored. I dont think Benji would relish standing under the high ball with monsters charging at him...

i think benji at fullback is crazy. exposing him to high balls and big hits is plain nuts... in saying that.. i like:

in attack:
1. brown
2. ayshford
3. marshall
4. lawrence
5. tuqiri

in defence:
1. brown
2. marshall
3. ayshford
4. lawrence
5. tuqiri

atleast on the wing in defence he isnt quite as exposed, yet he is also very good at up and in defence

this is all assuming
6. moltz
7. lui

this combination makes me froth at the mouth and has done so for quite some time...

p.s. u could also shift ayshford to backrow and persist with utai on the wing. this allowing marshall to attack and defend in the centres

Id be shocked if Sheens did this, but if he is seriously considering it, why not do it now?

Maybe Benji has had a word with him and wants his mate Moltz to get a chance in the hlaves and is willing to try fullback to accomodate it, or maybe Sheens has such a high opinion of Sironen that he's looking at bringing him in next year.

Oh, to just have 5 minutes inside the great Tim Sheens' head.............but i think if i got that id fail to recover.
