There’s no reason we would be letting him go, and there’s a decent chance he could be wearing the number 6 come round 1 next season. Moses may be the long term future but cahnces are we’ll still need an experienced half to interchange with Brooks and Moses as injuries/form dictates.
Do you guys really think the team will head into next season with two teenagers as playmakers with no-one else to cover, and no one with any experience?? Not a chance.
We’ll have to wait and see what the new coach wants to do with Austin but he won’t be going anywhere until mid next season at the earliest, you can count on that.
If he has a breakout season at centre, scoring 25 tries and is looking at rep honours i don’t think he’d be too upset at not playing 5/8 somehow. With good coaching he could excel in a number of positions. Running is his best attribute, so let the kid run and leave the other stuff to other guys.
