“ Boomer still Booming”
Garrick to fullback , Veaga to the vacant wing spot.Its time to move Turbo into five-eight. Unfortunately, I can't see him getting his speed back anytime soon. Without that speed he will never be an elite fullback again.
Playing him at six, Schuster at thirteen, Jake at ten and DCE at seven gives us the ball players that we need to activate our edges properly, and create scoring opportunities outwide.
If we are going to take advantage of these scoring opportunities we also need to change our outside backs. Weekes in for Turbo and Myers for Parker. Saab, Koula and Garrick unchanged. That combination would give us the fastest outside backs in the comp.
The potential ball playing combinations with Turbo, Josh, Jake and DCE as good as any other NRL team as well. However, that wont be enough to make us contenders in 2023.
We also need to make an extremely tough and risky call and remove Croker from the seventeen. The reality is that he doesn't have the skill set to unlock the ballplayers, and unleash the speed outwide.
Can’t be any worse than we are now.
