With the addition of Roberts, it’s created a real cluster for spots that will result in 1 or 2 regulars in 2020 missing out on a spot. Assuming everyone is fit. For balance, I think AD definitely has to move to 6. That would ease things somewhat. So that leaves the question of who plays 1.
AJ - Probably a bit too green. Though I do believe he played there at some point coming through the grades
Mbye - Maybe the safest assumption, but by no means the safest option
Roberts - Has played there before I believe, but probably putting a lot on his shoulders right off the bat. And given his off field issues, could do without the pressure
You would think BJ and Jimmy will get first dibs in the centres. And Noffa has one wing sewn up. Which leaves one wing and fullback up for grabs. I feel like AJ gets the wing spot and Mbye plays 1. Which leaves Tommy out in the cold, which I know would make a few of you happy. All of this is under the assumption AD moves to 6. Which if he doesn’t, will only create more of a headache. Also, not taking into account the potential signing of Mansour. And don’t forget Reece Hoffman
Agree completely it should be those spots, and Tommy probably won’t make the team most of the time. Would Storm really have let us have JAC if we gave Tommy? Mbye will play fullback for 2021
Did Storm ever even ask for Tommy as part of a swap deal?
Did we ask Tommy if he was willing to go?
Did Tommy say NO?
Would really be interesting to know.
I guess the major question for me is, was JAC ever serious about coming here or did he just have us a backup if the Storm didn’t give him an upgrade?
