They should still be picked in FG. Take the emotion out of it guys, we have no one better to replace them with. People are too emotionally invested in this. Worry about what you can control.
Your right at this point there maybe no one better to replace them but at the same time if the other guys are not given a crack then how do we really know that we don’t have better. Like Josh Reynolds would have to be one of the least talented 5/8’s currently playing but what he lacks in skill he certainly makes up with passion and enthusiasm (which is something our club captain appears to be lacking), just maybe someone from reserve grade could just be our Josh Reynolds but cant get a go.
So how long do you go through this season playing guys that are leaving before deciding to give another player a crack to prove himself?
We can’t afford to tank the rest of the season, which is what we would be doing by dropping these blokes. It’s just not a professional way to go about things and it would be pretty unappealing to potential signings. Cleary won’t do it and nor should he.
I get we cant afford to tank trust me I don’t want to see us finish last whish would be highly likely with out these three, I tend to think that perhaps we don’t have players to cover to the abilities of teddy and MM in their positions but surely we can bring along a prop to play off the bench and gain some experience going forward.
I also thought somewhere along the lines id read that Nofo through his junior years kept teddy out of fullback?? maybe then throughout the remaining games he needs to play some fullback to give Ivan an idea as to whether he plays fullback next year or do we need to spend up looking for a replacement (ie Dugan- not that I want him)
