    Why would Whare not be genuine centre material ?

    Whare is a genuine center, and with Farrar out not even a tough decision.
    Hopefully the thumb injury isn't too bad.

    I think Jorge Tafua has his nose out in front,as witnessed with the naming as 18th man

    Wouldn't mind Conrad Hurrell in a maroon and white jersey.

    Whare, Tafua maybe even Oldfield then you can look at Whare or Shorter on the wing.

    Last I saw of Lodge he was in the 2nd row. Somebody who went to Lidcombe should be able to answer that one.

    Fingers crossed for Steve but we have some good young guys coming through.

    I thought Oldfield handled himself better today. Took the ball up strongly and only one mishandle (although we got the penalty, a close thing)

    Whare is as good a back-up center as any. The man has some serious skills.

    I think Whare but whatever Tooves decides is ok by me.

    I wish you wouldn't have brought him up, I thought I'd wiped all that trauma from my mind.

    I wonder what happened to that gimp?

      I wont be suprised if this happens jb. Buhrer is the complete utility but personally hope Whare gets a shot there vs Tigers.
      The attack of Lawrence & Ayshford has me thinking Tooves may have Buhrer namely for his defence out wide. Seen Whare pull of some decent tackles but these Tigers centres can beat a man & with Benjis long pass are often 1 on 1 with the opposite centre invariably busting the line.
      Gift also in minor doubt for Fridays game.

      Lawrence had a great game against us last time. And if buhrer gets the nod we are going to need some mobility on the bench id reckon. Wouldnt want to bring georgie back for that game
