Okay coaches ... let's hear your predictions, suggestions or recommendations ..

With Suli's unusual naming on the bench ... the consensus seems to suggest that he will be given a shot in the 2nd row to spell probably Guacamole ... and that may very well be the plan ..

An alternate plan would be to move Parker in a spot to 2nd row and put Suli in the centre if Guacamole is spelled ...

What would you do ..??

Well Suli is a right centre.. So to put Suli at left centre instead of Parker, is a defensive risk and would also require a major reshuffle, as you would most likely have to either move Schuster to the right, or sub him off to get parker on (as Parker is predominantly a left side player). No chance. If Harper is fit, Suli is either coming on as en edge forward, or he is omitted altogether imo

I would be surprised if Suli spends time in the backrow but if it did happen I would be watching with interest.

Didn't Garrick get injured last weekend. I'd think Jorge just comes onto his wing

i think the emergence of the Ferrari on the wing sees big Jorges chances of ever playing back there for us very slim.

But the bloke is too good of a player to sit in nsw cup. I’m wondering if he could do a Ruben Wiki and moved to the back row or even the middle.

He’s a strong runner and a great defender i think he could make it in the pack. My only concern with him playing on the edge would be he can be a bit sus on his defensive reads. Thoughts?

What you say is logical ... however IMO this left and right centre is over stated in the game ... if a player is that specialised that he can't swap for a game if needed ... then he is as useful as thingmybobs on whatsanames .... and should take up beer pong ..

What about Ben T he’s a backrower as well.
would be nice to see him make his debut on the same day as Tom plays his 100th

Did this thread title just change from Suli or Parker to an edge?

Thank goodness you ain't the coach. It's called combinations @Woodsie - the less they are tampered with the better.

Dear moderator who changed my thread title without notice and then added a new option in the poll ....

My thread was entirely based on the situation presented this week with Suli named on the bench ... and the assumption that Guacamole will be rested at some stage .... It is a very specific question ... that if this happens .. who goes to 2nd row .. this week ..

Your interference has changed that very specific question into a meaningless naming of players not even in the squad on sunday ..

Centres have rarely ever changed sides of the ruck. Either right or left is a specialised position(passing right to left and vicky verca and defending in either direction) and side preferences are automatic through personal strengths and weaknesses.

Suli is a turnstile on his FAVOURED side...imagine how bad he would be on the other.

Defending in the second row coming off an injury layoff...someone is taking the plss.

Suli is a risk - period.
