I know this is a touchy subject. (Also posted on MSE):- Brett Stewart to me is one of the best fullbacks I have seen in a very long time. That's the way I'd like to start this topic. He is just ruthless at the back in the number One jersey. That's when he is there. This year Brett has been out injured for 25% of the season 29% if he misses this week, and a fair bit last year. To me that is disruptive to the team, our combinations - and our structure. That said, I would never want to see him play elsewhere. My mitigant to this:- We have an absolute superstar coming to play for us next year in Jamie Lyon. With Burns in the team for 07l, we would have to say Lyon will be playing centre. Can anyone here imagine a combination of Stewart (2) / Lyon (3). Hicks to Fullback. It would be just utterly ruthless. It is a known fact that a 1, 6, 7 & 9 are the most important positions on the park. If you can get combinations and consistency out of these positions, facts are your team will probably go well. If Stewart plays on the wing, there would be a number of factors to consider. If he gets injured, and actually takes twice the time to recover (unfortunately), a wing spot is not too tough to cover. I then thought, jeez, he scores so many tries injecting himself into the line, we would miss out. Does anyone remember how Scott Donald fared in 2003? He almost lead the NRL in tries scored. For the reasons above, and mainly for consistency, combinations, and of coarse to allow Brett to recover if necessary with the bonus of teaming him up with Lyon, I'd like to say move Brett to the wing. You just can't have an injury prone player in one of your most important jerseys. To finish, I'd again like to clarify, that Brett is one of my favourite players, and is an excellent fullback (one of the BEST actually), but my thought's/ideas were on a potential improvement in and for the team in 07. I know a lot will be against the idea, but all I ask is for you to look at the pros / cons, to ascertain what you guys think. Again - Lyon / Stewart, with Hicks chiming in occasionally. Nasty.
