Rd 15 vs Titans

Postby Mattpoet » Mon Jun 17, 2013 11:19 am

So I'm assuming that Billy, Cooper and Cam will be picked for Qld and Hoffy has already been picked for NSW. That means we have to pick a few different players for Monday night. Here is what I think we will go with:

1.Widdop
2.Waqa
3.Chambers
4.Blair
5.O'Neill
6.Hampton
7.Finch
8.J.Bromwich
9.Hinchcliffe (c)
10.Norrie
11.Proctor
12.Harris
13.K.Bromwich
14.Ryles
15.McLean
16.Garbutt
17.Griffin

Yep love it. That's the team I wanna see. Could see Hampton being picked at fullback though.

Looks good Mattpoet, except I can't see Widdop being moved considering (a) the form he's been in last couple of weeks, and (b) one new half is enough disruption -don't need two.

So I'd expect to see maybe Hampton come in at fullback and Widdop to remain at 6. If Hampton struggles at fullback or we lack punch then switch them.

Going by last year I think we learnt its better to cover your halves at the expense of your fullback than to cover fullback at the expense of your halves.

You may be right, although I can easily see Widdop defending at fullback but, slotting in to 5/8 in attack with Hampton sweeping out the back.

Really like the look of that team (although I'd swap Hinchy and Griffin).

i dont care who really gets the wing spot i just want o'neill to show his speed and i think there is no better way then putting him fullback.. yeah hooker roll will be interesting i cant see griffin going 80 mins but i think he will play the first 30 mins at hooker then hinchy will move to hooker griffin will come off and either garbutt, moors or k bromwich will play lock..

was just covering while billy was caught out of position, wouldn't read anything into it as it was a standard manouver that all wingers do at some point. Not saying he won't play fb, just that sunday was routine in that regard.
