    ok... so we have no 5/8, plenty of options for fullback, centres and wingers for next year. lets save the cash for muscle and play either of these two.. question is, which one?

    I have consistently thought Brett Stewart could play 5/8.

    Hide him one off the wing in defence and let him run one side of the attack.

    Lockyear had two good years doing that at the end of his career.

      I'd play Killer there. Snake chiming into the backline is too good for him to be shifted.

        I have a feeling Koroisau will be our 5/8

          I think both are that classy that they would do the job. Brett showed once again that he can create chances.
          I'd be happy with either, at the same time I'm happy if they stay in there respected positions.....

          I'll think you'll find if the rumours are true and Barrett coaches us next year he will be the front runner for the hooking spot...

          Brett Stewart is one of the best fullbacks going around. His defence and ability to read the game at fullback is extraordinary. Jamie is still one of the best centres in the game today, and has been for a long time. Why weaken either position to strengthen the 6? I think Api may make a great 5/8.

          With the new signings we will have flexibility for 5/8 position.Snake plays that role well and he created a lot today.

              No way it should be Stewart
              Why take away our most potent attacking force ? The way he chimes in now he couldn't do from 5/8

              Good option. Would have Mateo at 6 in front of Killer. Mateo has been great this year, can't understand the bagging he's copped on here.

              Snake is our 2nd 5/8 already.
