Our back 3 played really well last night can't see any reason to change them at this stage especially since the coach prefers to use Ayshford and Lawrence in the centres.

Disagree. He's a first strike winger who will continue to improve. He's only been playing league for a few years and is still learning. Once he fixes his defence, he'll be rep standard IMO.
This. And I seriously don't understand the lack of faith some have regarding Tedesco. Are people upset that he didn't come onto the scene immediately demand a Kangaroos jumper? Do people forget he's coming back from a season ending injury?He was scorching in the time he spent on the field round 1 last season.. and he'll get back to that standard and improve upon it out of sight if you give him time to find his confidence.

Tedesco was safe as houses last night. God only knows what would have happened with Moltzen at the back.

His cut out ball for Nofoaluma's try was perfect as well.

I like Teddy but I think he needs some more time. Can simona play fullback cause he always wants the ball which is good signs for a fullback and has the flair to break the line and score full length tries and is also a speedster.

Bring koro back in, to steam train over people.

Or we try moving aysh/Lawrence into second row.

If not i can see us losing koro and him destroying us.

Yep, lucky we have young gun such as Simona to easily fill the void that Koro left.

His solo effort against the Panthers, and the two last night, would suggest otherwise. Simona has scored/set up three of the most amazing tries I've seen from the Tigers in recent years the last few weeks.

I feel confident with Simona in the backline. I shudder every time Koro brings it back. He's good for one drop ball in our 20, one stuff up in the air, and one try down his wing a game. Needs a few weeks in State Cup to work on the finer details of a first grade winger. It ain't all power and strength, there's much more to it.
Yes, Simona has made some scintillating runs recently, but that's not to say Koro couldn't have run the same runs better. Would you rather Simona make those breaks over Koro? Though I do agree with you. Simona over Koro at the moment for mine.

I would be moving ash and simona in one and stick koro on the wing.

Ash is big enough for the 2nd row.

I think having these 2 lads and koro in the side, it's made me realise how much we've been missing some pace over the past few years!

I don't think Koro should come straight back into the side. I think Nofo and Simona have been far more impressive.

Does anyone else think Koro has looked considerably slower this year?

Yes! we keep using him as a prop! also in that souths game he had to spring 100m like 5 times from the other side of the field

Keep him fresh, he will run fast :)

Also, just put simona at centre? it's his preferred position, or at least that's what he played in NSW Cup. Koro is good, he's just been injured a lot this year and hasn't been put into space, just told to run at a line of defenders.
