You make a fairly good point and I have been thinking about this all week. How do we criticise Sheens's use of a three man bench (with a replacement back) when we are 4-1? How do we criticise his selection of Fitzy?

The question is, I guess, whether you think we would have done better with a full-bench and the selection of, say, Pritchard over Fitzy. I guess some would say that we are a better side with those changes. Not an easy question to answer given our great start to the season.

For me, I am just happy to see a specialist half back in the 7 for the first time, apart from Mathew Head, since 2006.

The selection of Lazarus has shown me that Sheens has learnt from his selection mistakes of previous years, where we would move three positions to cover an injury. This policy cost Robbie Farah a Dally M award.

I am confident we are moving forward in the right direction selection wise, with the obvious exception of Sheens' persistance with Fitzhenry.

Depends what you compare it to I suppose. When the next level we have up is generally regarded as the toughest, most professional rugby league comp on the planet....the next one down will always look a bit sad

When has Gould even gone out and watched a State Cup game.... Oh yeh he has to say that as he was one of the main pushers for the Mickey Mouse competition known as the NYC.

I respect Phil Gould but I have to say I am suprised he said that about State Cup, then again what Staks said makes sense.
