    I think the idea goes along these lines

    - QLD cup have some wingers and outside backs that have been going great guns all season

    - T rex has NRL experience so probably should be there

    - T Rex gets in the way elsewhere, so lets put him in 5/8 and hope he doesnt get in the way of Hodkinson too much.

    Hokinson can probably guide the team around on his own so the extra muscle may be the difference

    I figured they where playing him as an extra lock / secondrower but still....

    Maybe they think his positional play sucks so much they just let him plod along anywhere he wants.

    Its an odd selection. I almost think it must be a contractual one or something. He hasnt cemented a spot in QLD cup since he has been back there

    He has played

    Wing
    Centre
    Backrow
    and now
    halves.........

    Fullback next season?

    Sounds like they are moving him closer to being half next year to take Ox's place.

    Maybe that's just the jersey he fits in to? Wouldn't be the first time.

    I'm assuming its the extra forward routine Manly has gone with occasionally with the 5/8.

    If I am not mistaken is the bloke (Godfrey) who has been playing 5/8 for the last month a backrower too just filling in after their normal 5/8 got a season ending injury??

    Brandon Costin, the coach, obviously knows what to do so I'll back him.  He seems to have performed miracles to get this team up there in such a short time.  Good on him.  Future Manly coach?

    Costin and Ben Kennedy could coach us and re-live their glory days in the Private Bin on Northbourne Avenue.

    Cuthbo now on the bench for Queensland Cup.  Nearly getting to a point of readiness for a Sharks starting berth.

    Very cruel Matas, as I can remember Cuthbo was your darling true love.
