    Just wondering what people think of the idea of these two blokes swapping starting and bench roles permanently when Kite returns from injury? I feel like Rose is playing great opening minute footy and it has sort of always suited his build and style of play. Thoughts?

    Not an outrageous idea. Let's see what Des does.

    I reckon a big bloke like george does more damage off the bench against tiring defence and keeps more in the tank that way to. Kite is more composed and deals with the early grind much better.

    He also does a fair bit of damage when he is on the bench, but that is mainly damaging the actual bench.

    it's not going to get any better if he keeps coming up with a meat pie every week.

    Might be some merit to this, Rose has scored both games he has started lately.

    kitey needs to watch some old vids of himself and learn how to bend the line again!
    he's gone soft, thinks he's a 5/8 now

    Yeh I don't mind either way greatly but I see merit where kite was good when we first signed him and he started from the bench well. He has a big reach to offer an offload when the defense becomes tired in the second 20mins. Plus Georgie has that Glenn Lazzo/Shane Webke kinda build to compliment the opening exchanges.. ?
