Not really,

I like Stewart Mills but there is no way on this earth I'd have him in the centres ahead of Jonathan Wright.

It's a nice problem for Flanno to have in a sense as I have a serious feeling that Nathan Gardner will play NSW Cup for at least the early part of the season.

Wright has experience on his side but Mills has more upside and I think his development should be made more of a focus.

Gardner is a first grader and I think if he's considered as a reserve he will probably leave.

Wright is a hack. He should start the season but I can't see a long-term place for him.

I think Gordon in the centers. I think Carney would strike up a good understanding with a flying Gardner running unders or overs avoiding hitting a hole otherwise it will be crunchtime for the 47kg fullback.

Gordon joined us to play fullback.

I doubt he'll play in the centres.

Well obviously Canterbury disagreed with that as he was their starting centre for the majority of the season and was their Grand Final centre.

I'd have Wright in the centres imo.

1. Wright played 9 games at centre for the Bulldogs and the rest of the season on the wing.
2. He didn't play in the centres in the Grand Final.
3. He hasn't played in the centres since May.
4. He has played the majority of his career on the wing in first grade.
5. Neither his play in the centres or on the wing has been anything more than average.

Yes he did but the coach and whats best for the team will prevail. Different backdrop now i think he will play centers and offer alot more there too. If not he will be just as capable at fullback but leaves out gardner and weakens the team.
Play gardner at fullback gordon in the centers stronger side.

I don't disagree but knowing Flanno's coaching from the past couple of years I reckon Flash will play fullback.

Gards' defence can be a bit shaky at times and Flanno does like fullbacks with good defence.

If Gards was fullback and Flash in the centres, being the Sharks fan I am, I'd be very happy with that arrangement but I just can't see it happening. Hope I am wrong though.

Is Bryce Gibbs out injured?

With news breaking that up to 15 players may be stood down by ASADA could the team possibly be a lot different when they run out of the tunnel?, and I believe Gibbs is injured.

Must hurt him. He is a real fan.

He has toughened up a lot, so hope he gets through it.

I know what it was like when we got shafted.

Not the greatest, WEA.

I had considered extending my hiatus in here a little longer but I thought I'd pop in to fulfill my club moderator duties.

I'd been pumped for this Sunday but that has been deflated in a big way.

Put it this way, worst case scenario, you can still come in here and hang crap on other teams. I'm sure most of us here would welcome your input on the pressing events. SBW's comeback, Prince's move, Earl's bleached hair etc. 
Mr.Sharky

Mr.Sharky

Nah mate, I'm preferring to focus on stuff at my own club atm.

As far as SBW is concerned, he should've stayed in rugby but that's just imo.

Which suggests all players are free to play?

Good news but Godammit, excuse me a moment while I once again go change my supercoach team back to what it was this morning. 
Mr.Sharky

Mr.Sharky

Maybe he should join the Melbourne Rebels rugby club and swap hair tips with James O'Connor. :lol:
