Anasta playing in the back row will add a bit of extra yardage into his legs making it a little more difficult and miller will be finding his way
Dont think playing back row makes any difference....been plenty good b/r g/k over the years

Pretty sure Potters been quoted or WTs have stated Anasta will back up Benji in the g/k dept

from the player profiles it sounds as though Benj will kick as both Miller and Anasta are classed as 'back-up' to Benj. Does anyone know Millers stats in NYC?

He did kick a field goal from near halfway and at angle to the posts in at an impotant stage against Penrith at Campbelltown last year. Also a competent goal kicker.

A very low percentage of kickers play in the forwards, and part of that is fatigue, if you have 2 kickers the same might as well go with the one who should be a bit fresher

I didnt say there was a high % of forwards kicking

I said I think it makes no difference

I think the main reason more backs are kickers is it is generally the rule backs kick in general play, theyre more lithe, agile ...plus theyre less likely to be i'changed

Fatigue doesnt come into it....didnt for Parker, Fitzgibbon Furner Matterson Tatana, Cam Smith (dummy half the most fatiguing possy on the park) Riddell etc

Who's Tatana...is that the bloke that used to play in the 50's or 60's?

Benji for me, followed by Anasta & just give Miller the chance to concentrate on his game as the kid will have enough on his plate.
