    Was discussing this with @Spuds Bodyguard the other day. What are your thoughts?

    2016

    1. Trebojevic
    2. Taufua
    3. Matai
    4. Lyon
    5. Hiku
    6. Stewart
    7. ?

    For this to be successful you would have to sign a pretty good half but it does solve the where do we fit everyone conundrum. My obvious doubt is the toll frontline defence would have on Brett Stewart.

    Snake would not handle the extra defensive workload at 6. His body is already struggling to cope, moving him would be the death knell of his career.

    Trouble with these YARTS is the effect injuries have on them. Pre-season it was going to be a case of "where to we fit everyone in our fantastic backline?" Now it's "who can we play out of position to cover for injuries and defections?"

    For 2016 I'd go with
    1. Snake
    2. Tafua
    3. Lyon
    4. Matai
    5. Tom T/Gutherson
    6. Hiku
    7. Carney

    Personally I think Hiku has shown a lack of ball playing in the 1 jersey, so I really don't see him at 6. If we were to move anybody there in our current line-up it's Mateo until a proper 5/8th is purchased. Lyon could move there but I think he is too old to change positions now, and no to Snake for the reasons expressed by others above.

    We need to purchase a 6 and 7 (or hopefully DCE decides to stay). Carney, Cornish, Townsend, Maloney could all work in our line-up - especially if DCE stays.

    Hiku isn't a 5/8.

    Moving Snake to 5/8 would be a disaster. He has the skills but is his body up to being in the front line?

    Who said we won't have Killer or Snake in 2016? I can see both going around for one more year if they are healthy.

    At this stage, depending on who we get to play in the halves (and if we pick up just the one or get 2) I would be inclined to move Killer to 5/8 and play either Gutho or Tom T on the right wing (Jorge on the left) with Hiku in the centres.

    I'd be happy with (depending on the 7):

    1 Stewart
    2 Trbojovic
    3 Hiku
    4 Matai
    5 Gutherson
    6 Lyon

    then

    7 DCE / Cornish / Hodkinson / Maloney / Hastings / Travers (please not Carney)

    and

    14 Taufua (back row and good injury cover for 1-5)

    Seems to be some mail about for Richie Myler from the Warrington Wolves, probably a huge step up from the Wolves ( who are average at best) to the NRL, but I suppose a half with experience is better than none!!

    He's played 150 odd games in super league though mate so he's got a fair bit of experience when you consider he is only 24

    Snake has the fullback spot for as long as he wants it for me so no moving him to 5/8 i still think he is one of the top fullbacks in the game and i don't understand he not on top of NSW list . but don't mind just keeping him for Manly only

    No point worrying about it til after rd 13 when we know if DCE will definitely leave or reconsider staying. After rd 13, will have a much better picture of where we stand in regards to the halves situation.

    I see Jamie and Snake playing in 2016 for sure, and will play in their respective positions.
