Yeah I was quite surprised myself. Big fan of Jamie. Just came back from injury and have again been impressed with his steady and composed style of play at 7 - I would have thought this was one of the missing ingredients for us.Interesting. Where would that leave Gordie? Do you think they'd be sharing the role? Tough to know as the game keeps changing. One year it seems reasonable to to have 2 DMs, then the rules change and maybe it's not necessary. A bit hard to plan for the future these days.
Re Gordie, I'm sure he is the heir apparent for the 9 at this stage. I'm assuming Jamie will be our 2nd hooker/half on the books. So not sure where that leaves Croker? Still early days, and so many variables but I really hope we don't lose Jamie.
