If Sheens isn't happy with Humble then give Miller another go, move Lawrence back to centre with Ashford and put Reddy on Lote's wing and put Lote on the bench. Lote is big enough to come on in stints in the back row or backs if needed, with glue on his hands.
I reckon that was the catalyst for the move, to accommodate Ayshford.
Gentlemen, this is democracy manifest!

The last few times I recall Lawrence at 5/8 was when Brown scored near fulltime against a Broncos side with no rep players and us having to come from 16-0 down to beat the wooden spoon Cowboys. It stifles us every time. If it was done to accommodate Ayshford, just put Reddy on the bench in Blakes place, a centre who can play backrow. Stupid move which nearly cost us

put him at fullback.

having him chime into the backline is going to suck plenty of defenders in and allow more motion on attacking raids.

he could do so much more damage from the back with our current team.

I wouldn't be against him moving to fullback, but it won't happen.

The injjury to Tedesco crippled this team.

Lawrence was, as predicted by people on this forum who are not professionals but nonetheless astute judges, completely ineffectual as 5/8. The whole team suffered as a result. Did we have more than 2 backline movements in the entire game? Crazy stuff.
Lawrence is a specialist centre. He runs lines and angles, and looks for holes. He's not a distributor. His versatility extends no further than playing right centre.

What, and get rid of Moltzen?! I'm shocked!! Shocked, I tell you! Sounds like a pretty good idea if you ask me.

that is a massive statement.. he is well off the mark at the moment.. and he is too much of a structured player that mitigates risk wherever possible... halves and five eights need to have a risk element to their game..

After reading all the responses, and it's something that hasn't been brought up so far. I'm starting to believe he did it to be less disruptive to the team.

As crazy as that sounds, when Ayshford was being used as the utility and he came on, there was a massive reshuffle in the team.

Reddy, Lawrence, Ryan, were all given stints in the forwards.

Lawrence was also pushed to five-eighth and Humble or Fulton pushed to hooker.

Sometimes due to injuries but not always.

Putting Humble as the utility makes sense as you can keep avoid a reshuffle. Although, Humble probably has a better brain when it comes to making the "half/five-eighth" calls. But Humble is a much better choice for utility then Ayshford right now.

Welcome to the concept of satire.
