Snippets from a recent article from FoxSports.

Maguire said he was hopeful Adam Doueihi could return early from a long-term knee injury.
The Tigers’ best player in 2021, Doueihi could return to the fray earlier than initially expected.
“He’s training really well at the moment, so fingers crossed we might be able to get him a tad earlier than what was expected.
Doueihi’s return could create a selection headache for Maguire; the Tigers’ halves combination of Luke Brooks and Jackson Hastings is firing and Daine Laurie firms as the club’s long-term fullback.

Doueihi is a chance to slot into the centres, having started there on 15 occasions before, but Maguire said he had yet to make a decision about where Doueihi would play.
“I haven’t even thought about that,” he said.

Whether it was a smoke screen or not his comment about not thinking about it raised my eyebrows.
One of the most influential players in our side and he hasn't thought about it, come on Madge we're not that silly.

What position do you think Adam will play in. What will our final backline makeup look like going forward?
Thoughts......

Adam for me is destined to become a ball playing lock. Whether that happens next year or not I don't know.
I don't like either of our current centres, they need upgrading, with whom.....no idea!
I believe Gildart can improve, whether he runs home or not, your guess is as good as mine.

He's a better centre than anyone currently at the club by a mile. He's a better 6 than Brooks but unfortunately we don't have the luxary of having a bloke on a million dollars a year playing Reggies. Therefore AD plays centre

13. He's too slow for the halves with Hastings at 7. Toa and Kepaoa in the centres for mine.
I wish Kepaoa could have an absolute blinder and kill it.
Make breaks, show a ton of speed, solid in defense, side steps or bust thru tackles, SOMETHING.
I haven't seen any attributes so far that warrants selection.
He seems a nice guy but until he does something he's not in my side.
Hope he can do something against Eagles, we need him.

The one game Kepaoa was given at centre he played very well.

I dont care what Madge does with the would be enforcer....if he splits Hastings and Brooks then we are taking a backward step again...AD was the best player last year in a pitiful team,this year we are finally getting the spine right and if we play AD its anywhere else other than in the spine,he is a good back up if needed in the spine,but if you guys think he will be better in the 5/8 than Brooks with Hastings running the show then your dreaming...AD will need 5/6 games to get anywhere near NRL level again,and the fan boys want him in the side because they love him...wake up we are just getting to where we need to be,the spine is the start,just unlucky Laurie got injured and if you put AD there what guarantee do we have he wont go down again ...
1..Laurie
6..Brooks
7..Hastings
9..Simpkins...

Thats a great spine ....AD fill in unless he proves otherwise at centre or the bench...he wont out do Joffa in the lock position atm...

TT I know some people on here have friendly digs at each other about our Lebanese bros and sisters but I know several Lebanese who take offence to the shortning of the word that you used.
I personally think it's an offensive term.
I would appreciate if you didn't use it.
Cheers mate 👍
