Centre seems the position that will have most competition for. With 7 or 8 players trying to fit into two positions.

Looking forward to see how Josh Feldy, Junior Tupou & Triston Reilly develop this season. All are centres with potential.

I like Naden at centre. Halfway through the 2023 season it will be interesting see if any of the young outside backs can cement the other centre position in the starting side.
Or if Asu Kepaoa and Starford To'a have improved enough to keep it.
A.D and Talau are other options but it's most likely they will be used elsewhere in the side.

Average centres R’us

Bring back Roberts, Leilua and Simona just for giggles.

Interesting to see the Wests Tigers profiles updated today on the website with Brandon Mansfield included. Maybe bumped up to a development contract with Matamua going to Top 30? It doesn't appear to be train and trialists on the list...only Top 30 and Development players.

I think this is the case.

Mansfield was also the only non-Top 30 or Development Player at the Narellan fan event.

99% sure he’s been upgraded to a Development Contract.

Marshall has to prove he can coach an NRL side....many have played the game and yet failed at coaching...I certainly hope he learns a heap while Sheens is here,otherwise it could be another boys club failure...
10000% agreed.
Sadly the board is going to have NFI because Sheens will be backing his own plan.

Deal REEKS of boys club.

That said, still better the Siebold going to Manly. I mean HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA

Benji will have player pulling power for a start....and the young crop will want to play hard for him. We will have much better cattle in years to come but I hope they continue getting some experience around Benji to grow his coaching ability once Sheens walks off into the sunset.

I think Benji's pending coaching gig, and robbie's is a master stroke.
They are still young and fit enough to interact with the players on the training paddock.
This going to help ol Tim too.
