    The papers have Tezza at next to no chance of playing. Matai is suspended.

    They said that if Ash can overcome his niggling injuries he will play.

    I hope he does, and walks all over the top of Siola.

    someone said on ME the doctor did not clear him and Beaver into the centres.

    hope it is not true

    ahhh ok, i didn't see that.

    Beaver in the centres is NOT GOOD!

    Why weaken our strongest area of the field? Bring up a young guy in Taylor or even Mullane.

    OR push Hicks to centre and Creary to Wing, but please NO Beaver in centres

    Agree Hicks to centre is a far better option than Beaver, although I would like to see Ash get a chance.

    boys beaver defends a fair bit as a center anyway ,stewart is a good backrower and will fill the void.i agree i would like to see alberts as well but if not give me beaver anyday over the other ****.he also takes his hitups wider of the ruck as well.

    answer me this, why weaken 1 area to strengthen another?

    we have become dominant this year because of our back-row.

    our centres have been one of the worst pairings around and yet we are still coming 2nd, so imo it won't hurt us to put a young specialist centre in there.

    I was cracking a fat at the thought of Alberts playing,but that was quickly deflated with the mention of Menzies in the centres !

    because it wont matter squat how good we are up the middle if everytime they ping it wide they carve us up.i agree give me alberts if fit but if hes not and you run out with mullane or someone its over.hicks would be good in the centres but the wingers like creary and so on are crap .the people in charge have got us this far so obviously their opinions of the alternatives arent that high,have faith boys

    our centres dont play a traditional centre type game anyway. ( as in free flowing, running into created gaps etc ) so having Beaver there wont be a major issue, he attacks out there anyway, we will miss his defence in the middle but we know Glenn Stewart can tackjle.

    so mayby that would not be a major issue ???? just a thought.

    But as a rule, im with DVS Matt, never strengthen one position to weaken another.

    pepsi i agree totally not to move backrowers out there but management know a lot more than we do about the ability of replacements so i will put my trust in their judgement in this case.i was only saying to sue yesterday i wish alberts would get a gig so i am not against that.

    Sam Harris in the centres wouldn't be a bad move.
    He wouldn't be any slower than Hill & his defence is fairly good. ( just a thought )

    I do agree but we dont have a specialist centre available besides Johnson and he is not ready for 1st grade. Taylor is a winger/fullback and Mullane is a 5/8 who plays a bit of centre. If Alberts is out I believe Beaver is the best choice. By adding Stewart in 2nd row we get a real workhorse.

    when I think of Sam Harris in the centres I think of the Waratahs 2002, Christchurch.

    Agreed.

    Taylor,Johnson or even Mullane would be able to do the job.

    Just don't destroy our backrow Des!!!
