Brand is our investment here...Has he bulked enough muscle though?

Burrell, could he be an inbetweener? I’d like to see him get a run at centre for the 2 games though. We’ll get to see how good his hands and peripheral are and be able to rule on him one way or the other.

The safe money call is Mamo.

Is it that simple ?

There are probably two changes; 1. BMM comes into the pack and 2. Gelling goes out to the naughty step. If you wan't to keep it as simple as possible you move Hughes to centre and BMM to BR. You then only make one playing change to the team.

I am not saying that it would be my preferred choice btw.

Is second row or centre any different in the modern game?

Surely it's just a case of Hughes moving to 3 and BMM coming into the second row?
And so you aim towards the sky,
And you'll rise high today,
Fly away, Far away,
Far from pain....

Well it's true that we have lost some specialist positions. We now have two SO's rather than a SH and SO. And the hooker has taken the role of the SH. But surely there should be a big difference between a ball playing BR and a centre ? We are looking for someone who can get the winger away using a bit of guile / footwork /burst of speed. Hughes can do ok in that position by holding off attackers and getting a one handed pass away, but there is a big chunk of talent missing from the rest of his play. Compare him with Gelling and you see the initial speed and deception that he can produce to open up a small gap. In contrast Hughes looks a bit heavy and laboured as you might expect from a forward.

I think you have just made a case for a viable & effective schools, youth & academy system there Mr Winslade in order to produce the best in future players.
Doubtful we will see the like of that again though.
