There are currently a few weak links in the team:
1. Tui at fullback. Mbye the obvious replacement if it happens otherwise Thompson.
2. ET at hooker. Liddle has to come in when fit and play 80. Benji is worth a try could be like a Peter Wallace. He can tackle.
3. Benji at 6. Reynolds has to come in and play 80. I’d move benji to the bench or convert him to hooker. Couldn’t be worse than ET.
3. MCK/Rochow right edge. We need to sign someone to cover otherwise Aloai has to play well and earn the job.
4. We need an 80% Goal Kicker.

Regarding your 3rd point - is it time for McQueen to play 12?

Can't say as he played that badly myself, how many bad things did he do that have warranted the barrage of criticism in this thread?

A ball hit him on the head as he was hassled by offside players - let's hang him!!!!

What else??????

He may not be the best fullback in the NRL but he is the best we have got at the moment.

Yes, I am still saying he is a better Fullback than Thompson (who's best position is on the wing).

There were any number of players out there today who deserve just as much, if not more rubbishing than the Fullback we had today.

Obviously he lost us the game - right?

Name one other fullback in the NRL who couldn’t run down Victor Radley over 70m. Hes not willing to do the work to get fit, dump him.

I agree that we have more urgent concerns. We have 0 impact forwards and although the beasts (MCK and fonua) can do some good things they're not the sharpest tools in the shed.

I thought he was disappointing today, when we had enough possession to really involve the fullback. One nice grubber is most of what I remember.

Thought he was ok last week.

I think the "fat" comments are wide of the mark. Several people have said they've seen him up close recently and he's not fat.

Furthermore some blokes are just a wide frame. Try telling me that Marsters or Fonua ars shredded. Kev is super ripped but doesn't make him a class footballer.

I personally don't think Cleary would be picking Lolo if he wasn't fit enough- he's already dropped blokes several times for not meeting their KPIs.

I think Tui tries very hard and he didn’t lose us the game but he doesn’t seem to be a “natural” fullback. In defence he gets caught out of position a bit too much for mine, this leads to opposition defences getting to him too early. He doesn’t bring the ball back with enough pace either meaning we start our sets on the back foot. As was shown today, his lack of straight out pace is concerning.

He also dosen’t effectively interject himself into the Backline movements. He seems more comfortable playing in the line like a six would. I don’t believe it’s through a lack of effort and it may be an experience thing but the top grade is not where you should be learning.
