Like Farrell, has Lomax ever had a good game at international level? I can't recall one but maybe he has.


Nothing much springs to mind.

Now what about Gale? :D

We'll be playing Garry Schofield and Sean Long in the halves at this rate.

:lol: I guess we are where we are. If he's on form I'd be very tempted to put Connor at No6. He has stood out at test level.

I’d put Lomax in that same bracket as Farrell in saying has he ever been played in the correct role? He came through at Saints as a halfback but was quickly used as a utility back and shunted around. He’s been superb these last few seasons as a halfback but at international level I can only ever remember him playing a bit of fullback and a few games from the bench at fullback or stand off.

I’m like a couple of others in thinking Williams and Lomax are too similar and ideally you want one of those with an organising halfback but we’ll have to see who is available. It’s been a slow start for Gale and there aren’t many of that style around the league.

You have to wonder why Wayne Bennett consistently chose the likes of Kevin Brown, Luke Gale, Jackson Hastings, George Williams infront of him?

I think if Connor came in it would be at FB with Tomkins in the halves.

if you want to go down that rabbit hole, then also wonder why Wayne Bennett thought it a good idea to play Blake Austin on the wing.......

i know that in itself is weird, i always wondered why he didn't put austin at centre and connor on the wing, who had some wing experience, surely more transferable skills and responsibility going from SO to C.
