I really like the way Garrick is developing into a leader at Manly.
Good to hear from the horses mouth that while he would like to move to centre, he knows it's about what is best for the team in any given situation.
Parker is not dynamic enough to be a dominant second rower or a centreParker would be a pretty good second rower. Has the defence for it.
we need a pack that lays the platform for the backs. Not one that gets belted all the time. Our packs so bad im suggesting parker might add something says it all.Parker is not dynamic enough to be a dominant second rower or a centre
To be more dominant this season we need more dominant players across the park
Parker can at times hold his own
We need dynamic players that can own the game
We can do better than Parker

Parker with his lack of speed and skill has exceeded expectations through courage and commitmentHe would be a below average NRL second rower in my opinion. Recon he would get smashed with ball in hand.
We have the biggest divide between our best and worst possible finishes. If Tom stays fit, our forwards hold their own and Schu lives up to the hype, top 4 is more likely than not. If Tom barely gets on the field, none of the forwards step up and Schu crumbles under the weight of expectation, bottom 4 is all but guaranteed. I kinda like the endless possibilities. One way or another it's gonna be a very interesting season.
Yeah, interesting idea. I also quite liked the thought of having Croker and DCE swap around a bit in offence and defence I.e. Croker defends the middle, but DCE plays more of a roving dummy half role in attack.Now here’s a slightly ‘left field’ idea:
What if they play Parker and Weekes on the same side and they swap in when in defence and attack?
Weekes has shown his ability as a Full Back and taking the kicks, while in defence Parker is really strong at Centre.
In attack, Weekes is decptive and quick and while Parker’s speed may not be brilliant, he does run great lines.
Just a thought in terms of mixing it up a bit.
