Whoever replaces Teddy it will be like trading a Lambourghini in for a Leyland P76 (at least there is room for a 44 gallon drum in the boot I suppose).
Geez it would be nice for the fickle finger of fate to shine on our side for once. Go Tiges
Yeah, it will be Rankin with JAC on the wing.
Don't think so mate. JAC is as much on the outer with JT as Robbie. Hunt was seen with the first grade team in training earlier today unfortunately.

Not sure about the cap but Addo-Carr to wing and Rankin to fullback.

So why does everyone keep telling us we cant pick JAC because he isnt in our top 25 and weve gone over our second tier cap.
You can get dispensation if you have injuries. We can't play a top 25 winger in reggies and have a winger outside the top 25 play first grade if we are over the cap. However if we don't have the players available to play the required positions then we might be given permission to bring a player outside the top 25 into the team.
But if Hunt is available and healthy wont they say we have to use him because he is in our top 25?

Explains why Hunt was training with the first grade squad today.

At fullback or wing? was JAC training with first grade?

By the training pics today I think Hunt will be in the 1
Would much rather Rankin at 1 and Hunt at 5.

am I blind? noffa is great under the high ball. he attacks it and always gains a few metres if in form.

his issues are his defence and turning speed.
