    Who is the better halfback - Orford or Monaghan?

    Who is the better dummy half - Ballin or Monaghan?

    Who is the better 5/8th - Burns or Monaghan?

    Who is the better utility - Monaghan, dunley or Halden?

    The answer you give to those questions is how you should pick your YART.

    For mine it is:

    6. Burns
    7. Orford
    9. Ballin
    14. Monaghan

    Yeah, I can agree with that. Having Monas on the bench hanging over Ox's head might scare him into action. It wouldn't do for the captain & marquee player to get hooked.

    i agree Mata


    Can anyone believe the "Monas man love" crew on MSE stating we should release Orford and extend Monas contract for 3 years

    So far this season Monas at half is playing all over Orford at half.

    Seriously Orford looks injured and should not be back until he gets better. Then he would be playing good enough to be value for money with the amount we are paying him.

    Orford still hasn't started season 07.

    That does not surprise me at all. Memory can be defficient when you've had redskins for breakfast for 40 years.

    i will go with
    7 Orford
    9 Ballin

    But I dont think there is much between Burns & Monas at 5/8 and I can see merit in rotating the 2 perhaps start with Burns at 5/8 for his defence and interchange with Monas when the game opens up a bit more.

    agree, Monas can certainly hold his own, but offers more in utility value than the starting 3.

    The Rockers switched to milk bottles (calcium to help with the osteoporosis)

    Don't ignore the fact that Ballin is quite a handy backrower.
    Yet another reason that he must be in the team if Des continues to have 3 props on the bench.

    its a bugger we cant find a way to have all 4 on there.
    Monas is too small to be lock if he was any bigger id say chuck him in the number 13.
    His defence is great and he provides variety in attack.
    I also think hes passin game has improved since playin 9

    Another one into the mix is Lyon at 6, who pay well play that for NSW, and has played some of his best footy for us from that position, and also made Bell look twice the player
