Whichever player comes in it will give us an indication of what Seibold thinks about where Garrick or Weekes will end up in this team for the future

Harper is a goer. I don't think he's a first choice centre but he's decent depth.

Just cause Talakai gave him a bath after he made a premature comeback from Covid doesn't mean his cards should be marked forever. Some matches in the last few years he was one of the few players who could hold his head high after actually putting in a good performance.

At least we can look on the bright side ... team list Tuesday just got interesting again ...

Regardless of who gets the nod for centre ... at least half of Silvertails will be outraged ...
Can we go back to discussing whether Gordy is in the 30? It is such a satisfying debate.

Absolutely cannot be Harper. Hasn't even been trying to win his position back in reggies so can't just hand it to him like that. I reckon give Burbo first crack this weekend, big matchup for him in defence but he can stand his ground. If crocker fit put lawton on that bench spot.

Put Rueben there, it's time to give him a crack. Vaega on the wing or Harper.
Or put Weekes in there and put a number 9 Specialist in there
I have no idea why Garrick is so desperate to play center? He scores tries by the bucket load out on the pretty boy edge. just needs to wait for turbo to do his thing and most of the time goes over untouched. doesn't have to run the brad parker death lines and is wont be paid any more money for having to tackle edge forwards..... what's the upside of him moving in there?

He got a taste of being more involved when filling in for Turbo. He enjoyed the extra responsibility and is hungry for more. Also added some $ to his contract. The wing can be a lonely place especially when you know you can add value closer to the ruck.

Harper is not exactly impressing at Blacktown imo.

Seen them twice this season, and he has been average at best.

Weekes would be a good option, keeps the team relatively the same as previous weeks, has spark and speed and could definitely create points. If Croker is back then Lawton to 14, other wise maybe Lawton to start, Gordy to come off bench? ( not sure if he is in top 30 yet, but with the release of the Alec and Villi surely he takes that spot??

I'm with you. I recall some games in 2021 and 2022 Harper was one of our better players and even earned our MVP points. Yet he's being stigmatised for that Sharks game thanks to the after-effects of Covid.

He can only be as good as the players around him and playing for Blacktown wouldn't do a lot for him. Imo he deserves another chance and the Knights game is an ideal one for him.

Centre is one of the trickiest positions to defend these days, so it would be quite a gamble to pick someone not used to playing there. The other options probably involve weakening another spot to try to cover centre. Interesting choice.
