    Will Des finally concede that Jamie Lyon is a far better centre than 5/8 ?

    Lyon looked awesome in the first half with a bit of space against an international class opposite in Brent Tate. Bell on the other hand was ineffective again and must be looking nervously over his shoulder at the imminent return of Matai.

    Not sure it has really. At the press conference Des still seemed to think Lyon was a 5/8. Best game I've seen from Lyon tbh.

    I think Lyon look as dangerous as any other center in the game tonight.

    No, I don't think it will sink in. Des said something in the post match interviews along the lines of 'just cause he had a good game and we won by 46 and beaver was great, doesn't mean Lyon isn't a 5/8th.

    I think he'll be straight back with the 6 on his back the minute Matai returns.

    Lyon's best game since 2003.

    Saddest thing about this was how the question had been aimed at Ox (obviously because the journos know how defensive Des is when questions about Lyon at 6 are asked), but Des thought it was time to stand in and defend his own honour. Fair enough though, Killer has copped plenty over the past couple of weeks, Des probably felt he had to defend his players while he had the chance.

    I thought Beaver actually really looked good at 5/8 this week !!

    Re Des...he's WAY too stubborn to admit he's wrong. It's a school teacher thing (he used to be a school teacher) - I'm right, aren't I Canteen !!

    Yes Hasler was a schoolie, primary trained.  If Hasler puts Lyon back at 5/8 he's a true fukwitt.  On Witt, I thought he played his best game for us in years.

    I hope it does. We need Lyon at centre. I'm not opposed to Matai taking bell's spot either

    It's been bloody obvious since before round one. Not just Killer at left centre.

    . Orford ran at the line.
    . Ballin ran at the line.
    . Ballin kicked.
    . Lyon played left centre.
    . B Stewart chimed in as a ball player
    . Menzies had input to the attack.

    I don't think it took a genius to work that shyte out.
    Fuggen obvious to me & I'm sure to anyone who has a clue, before the start of the season.

      At the press conference he hedged his bets and wouldn't commit to Lyon being returned to the 6.

    My bet is that Lyon will wear the 6 but he wont play there.
