Sneaking suspicion that Yeo goes into the middle rotation. He played a bit of lock/bench middle at the end of last season.
I read somewhere that Capewell was on the radio the other day and mentioned something along the lines of he and kikau being the edges.
Other than that I have no real basis for the theory, so its a wait and see.
More on this, these quotes from the other day on a sportingnews article, I think its looking pretty promising for Capewell to start on one edge at the Panthers. Lock him in as one of my starting centres I think:-
"For me to leave Cronulla was a big decision but it's something that had to happen. I was lucky enough that Ivan gave me a call and Trent Barrett gave me a call. It's been a really good fit for me so far so I'm stoked with the decision."
Capewell played out the full 80 minutes at second-row on 16 occasions for the Sharks last season, a trait of his game he takes pride in.
He said that was a deciding factor in his decision to move to Penrith, with Ivan Cleary eager to use Capewell's versatility on the edge.
"Big in my decision to come to the club is Ivan sees me as a backrower," Capewell revealed.
"Which for me is really good, because I enjoy playing in the back row and playing 80 minutes.
"I'm more than happy to play other positions, whatever benefits the team, but knowing Ivan sees me as a back row gave me great confidence, so hopefully I'm nailing that down."
