Centres are Crichton, Talau, Fui so there’s every chance we’re short there next week too. Whereas we should at least have WFB cover next week.
So I think if we (regrettably) need a CTR to maximise the chance of having 17 next week as well as increasing numbers this week?
Caveat: am looking at this on phone and only get half the team image, so could be wrong
Agree with this - we shouldn't see Ponga, Teddy or Papy rested again next week so can reasonably assume we have 3 WFBs(with Hammer to cover if Papy is out again)
Ofa out gives us 416k to play with at centre
Hymel Hunt - DPP, solid base. Unlikely to go large without tries
Jennings - Scores are heavily attacking based, but I think Eels have put the cue in the rack for the rest of the year
Hopa - Historically a good scorer at fullback and most of those scores have come once Dogs were eliminated from finals contention. 2 games to try and avoid the spoon
McIntyre - Probably has the best floor of any centre this week, but who knows what position he will have in the team next week if any
Lafai/Ramien/Blake/Marsters - Hail mary on catching 2 big scores from attacking centres
Averillo (via Fuimaono instead) - Looks to have done enough to lock up the 6 jersey for the next 2 weeks. Pretty popular so insulated against injury/being dropped as all owners have to deal with it
