    Nrl pre season position rankings - centre

    Post by leaguegod on Fri Feb 24, 2017 8:48 am

    previous positions:


    Hopefully this gets more then just me and dip like the current response for wingers!

    tough position this one, seems to be a position full of player who alternate great and quiet years.

    1. Will Chambers - spent a bit of time injured last year but before that had established himself consistently on both sides of the ball
    2. Michael Jennings - Quiet in first season at parra but has still been a top centre for so long, hasn't always performed at rep level but has had club level imo
    3. Dane Gagai - been playing good footy for a while now, can be easily forgotton at the knights
    4. Jarrod Croker - i've gone with 2 of the more consistent centre's through out the years at 4 & 5, rather then those that had breakout years last season
    5. Josh Morris - see above
    5. BJ leilua - BJ was unreal last season but he is the poster child for having a quiet/poor season after a good one, interested to see how he goes
    6. Justin O'neal - big year last year, will be interesting to see if he backs it up
    7. Euan Aitken - probs a bit high but i really rate him going forward
    8. Dylan Walker - never been as big a fan as everyone else but going back to centre should be good for him
    9. Jordan Kahu - reliable, consistent player, not a common thing at this position
    10. Jack Bird - i think he deserves a spot on this list but i still don't think this is his position long term

    Notable guys to miss

    Fergusson - i did this mainly on club level, fergy actually played pretty good for NSW & Australia but i thought he was a weakness for the chooks all last year, his defense was absolutely laughable, seems to need games to be big to stay interested some times
    Roberts - others will probs have him there but i'm not that high on him, his speed is a huge asset tho
    Idris - to unknown for me, wouldn't be surprised if he has a big year, i hope it does
    Peachey - last year was probs good enough to make it but like bird i'm just not sure this is really his position
    Blake - finished the year strong but the games where he made multiple errors are still stuck in my mind!
    Kata - Huge attacking weapon, still leaks tries.

    Latrell mitchell is gonna play centre but i have no idea how he will go, so can't really judge him till he has played a bit there

    1. Jennings
    2. Chambers
    3. JMoz
    4. BJ Leilua
    5. Bird
    6. Crocker - he'll be missing half the season though won't he?
    7. Roberts
    8. Gagai
    9. Ferguson
    10. Walker

    This assumes Inglis is a fullback. Bit of a meh position personally, and some of those are good club footballers I wouldn't necessarily want in rep football. Considering there's 32 centres across the 16 teams, and wingers are players not good enough to be fullbacks or centres, those two positions have pretty weak depth IMO, especially compared to fullback. Not that long ago the quality would be much better than today with guys like Hodges, Gaz, Cooper, Lyon, Girdler, Inglis etc. I don't think you'll be able to say that about many positions.

    Crocker? He's going to miss more than half a season mate. Very suprised you left Croker off the list as well, he's only expected to miss the first 3-4 games.

    Crockers decoy runs were so good people are still mesmerized.

    Oh I hated Michael Crocker.
    Channel 9 used to always put out a stat that the Storm were undefeated when Crocker played for them but he only played like 12 games a year. Guess he made more of a impact than the Big 4. Shocked

    Aggregate scores after post 7:

    34 Chambers
    29 Leilua
    28 Jennings
    26 Gagai, Crocker
    21 JMoz
    18 Roberts
    15 Bird
    6 Ferguson
    5 O'Neill
    4 Peachey
    3 Aitken, Walker
    1 Kahu, Mitchell

    * LG you listed 2 5ths. I assumed it was a typo, made BJ 6th and moved everyone down 1, dropping of Walker.
