Chris at 5/8....

Post by WelcometotheJungle » Sat 19 May, 2012 12:44 am

Please stop with this Sheensy. You can be brilliant at times... But not with this idea.
When Rowdy is at his best, he is one of the, if not the best centre in the game... So why change that?
I hate to say it, but in the second half without Rowdy, we played a lot better.
Thoughts on Rowdy's stint at 5/8?

Yeah we did play better, but I think it was just not because Chrissy was off.

What worries me is that Lawrence has not had the best start to the year, looks down on confidence, yet Sheens plays him at 5/8, a position he just does not suit. Not the best way to regain confidence in my humble opinion

CENTRE is his position, no where else

I never meant to mean that we only won because he was on the sideline injured. Sorry if that is how it came across.
I agree with you on the confidence factor, maybe Sheens is trying to build up his confidence by playing him at 5/8.....

My opinion is he was moved closer to centre to hide him in defence...cos he's been struggling badly out wide. Reddy & aysh much more reliable defenders.

Maybe solution is to let him run his lines and inside runs in attack from centre but move him closer in when defending??

Tigers were always going to come back (I can say that now because they did) but sheens is kidding himself if he thinks that's the way to build his confidence :crazy :crazy

Just want to see the Lawrence of Old back again

I agree that Lawrence should never be in the 6 again but on a side note, I have never seen us starve our centers of so much ball before.
Even Marshall is much happier to crowd them or kick through the line rather than give them some space to do their thing.
Centers need space.
