ive never really thought much about it but a comment by gould on the roast today where he said players like snake and slater are basically 5/8s in todays game(based on those long passes they threw for tries) got me thinking.darius boyds game at 5/8 in the charity shield adds credence to it. If you accept that 1.we lack penetration in our backline play as the last 2 years have shown 2.Foran is a gifted runner and tough nut but not overly creative-in other words a 13. 3.Williams is no centre but may be of use in bursts then a move by Brett to 5/8(who is also bigger this year)may not be crazy. Im not usually a fan of positional changes(or YARTS) but if it came off it would help fix a couple of problems-our lack of forward spark (outside choc) on the fringes in attack and more ball playing in the backline.all of a sudden the side looks more penetrating.I haven't given up on the year like some but if we are struggling in a couple of months it may be worth a shot. This side looks good to me if Brett could handle the change.His support play doesnt have to change just because he is 5/8. Hoppa Wolf Lyon Matai Robbo Stewart DCE Foran Stewart Watmough King Ballin Kite Buehrer Rose Williams Gnuluvau It just seems to have more points in it and no real obvious weakness if it worked(other than a lack of bench depth which we can't fix).All of a sudden everyone is playing inÂ positions that suit their style and it does not have that stop gap look.just a thought.
