Adam Blair position

Post by Rambo2714 » Fri 03 Feb, 2012 11:58 pm

Im asking where would you play Adam Blair and why ?

Front Row or Back Row?

The question is NOT where do you think Tim Sheens will play him .

Back-row
why pay the amount of money we did to play him at prop?
Not to mention a back-row of Blair, Ellis and Heigno would easily be the strongest back-row in the comp

Second Row for sure I think we will get a lot of value with him playing wider in the ruck while in attack and defence

A no brainer,11 or 12,which means Sheens will have him at 8 or 10.

Adam plays his best footy as a roving Backrower...

Very interesting ,

I would have him play the role that Todd Payten did, ball playing, off loading front rower , with a license to rove out wide and run back row lines occasionally ..........

I think that would take full advantage of his skill set , size , strength , speed and from what I have seen he is a smart footballer too , so he would definatly excell in a dynamic role .

I heard Adam say he was excited about the role which Tim wants him to play, so I dont think it will be conventional style he will be playing

2nd row for me, & maybe a little stint in the front row, but maybe Ellis will move up front for some of the game instead of Blair so he can stay in the 2nd row.

Backrow, with Ellis on one side and Blair on the other, with Heighno roving around, best backrow in the comp IMO.

Agree with Ellis and Blair but Id have Fulton roving around,to me thats a better balance,with Rhino off bench roatating through front and back row.

Ps......Manly has a pretty handy backrow,Williams,Watmough,Stuart.

Front row and back row as required during the game. He is another 80min player on our books.

Had to be impressed by his performance tonight, he is just always in the right place and seems to make the right decisions.

Blair and Ayshford on one side and Lawrence and Ellis on the other - very exciting.

Gotta agree, players like him and Ellis just play where and when they are needed, number on the back or official position is irrelevant.

But I do look forward to coming on here when he has an 8 on his back and we lose the game. No doubt a certain coach's record 10 years ago will be brought up.

He will be an asset wherever hs plays, but considering we've lost a couple of good front rowers, I wouldn't mind seeing him in the prop rotation, on occasion.

Back row for me. He can do more damage out wide. With Ellis and Blair hunting out wide we'll have an added danger on attack especially close to the line.
