    As good as Harry Grant really is, if B Smith smashes it at hooker does he keep the 9 until he isn't amazing?

    Don't see it. Smith is huge for use off the bench!

    Imagine what Grant could do off the bench though. Bellamy is big on loyalty. Wouldn't surprise me if he keeps the 9 for an extra week or two.

    I pulled the trigger! I couldn't wait until Tuesday. Will hold this team until TLT now. Not really loving it so hopefully next week, with some team lists, I can re attack it.

    Jrailey
    Crichton Lodge Koloa
    Capewell Fifita
    Cleary Lam
    Bird Avo
    Teddy Pappy Isaako

    Watson Riki Davey BMM
    Niu Lauri Hoy Young

    79K remaining.

    It is pretty cookie cutter with no picks really standing out. A few on the chopping block.

    I really can't imagine. He came off the bench in that game 3 of Origin but it forced Friend into lock. I can't see BS9 having that impact he has playing 50 minutes at hooker and then moving to lock... or worse, out of the game completely.

    Smithy is the fire off the bench for us... If our forwards are off to a slow start he comes on and makes a couple barnstorming runs and the momentum is all on us after that.

    Just in my opinion Grant goes straight back to 9 as soon as he is fit. I would rather Grant play 80 minutes with Smithy going bull in the middle, than have Grant come on for a little 25-30 minutes stint.

    Again, just my opinion.

    Nup. Won't happen. Grant has a mortgage on that jersey and would be wasted on the bench.
    I'd say it's more likely that Smith gets the #13 if any starting position.

    Has any other Australian opener (or batman at all) ever stayed in the team through such a poor run of form as Aaron Finch is?

    Is it a reluctance to drop him because he's captain?

    Maybe not for the first 1 or 2 games but I dont think it matters how well B.Smith goes. Grant is pretty much guaranteed to be starting hooker no matter how well Smith plays. BS9 is far to valuable on the bench for Storm being able to cover more positions.

    For another team on the other hand he would most likely be starting hooker. Warriors could use a BS9 rite about now lol!
