Ok, we all are fed up with Sheens’ team selections. All the negatives have been pointed out and i agree with whats being said. But just to balance it out, i thought i’d look at the team with rose coloured glasses on. So, these are the “possible” positives:
1. People say Farah at 7 has failed in the past. I disagree. I believe Farah is a top half and has performed well there everytime. Whenever he’s played there we’ve been a weakened side and im pretty sure he’s never played 7 with Benji at 6. It could be a sensational halves combo. I know this move is short term, but with Farahs back, a career at half may be the thing he needs. Also, like Smeg pointed out, he isnt a dominant defender in the middle of the ruck. He makes a lot of tackles, but he really isnt a strong defender. If he spends the next month at 7, it wouldnt be totally out of the question that he could in fact be the NSW half, thats how good he could be. Bellamy has seen him as a half, so who knows.
2.Fultons defence in the middle will be much more effective than Farah’s.
3.Ryan is back at fullback.
4.Natahan Waters is a smart and creative player and he gets his chance to show us what he’s got.
Ummm, hmmmm, well i could only come up with 4 possible positves. At least i tried.
