The safe decision would be to drop Lehi. I don’t personally agree with it, but it’s the easier and safer decision for Seibs. He can justify it by pointing to Turbo being a champion and Lehi still learning the ropes in first grade and will benefit from a rest (but he’ll be back)… I think any other decision will attract big media attention and headlines… not what I would do, but Its not my head on the line.

My gut feeling is it'll be Talau. I think Seibold is seeing that both Turbo and Hoppa's contracts expire in 2026. I think he might do a straight swap in contracts when that day comes, and wouldn't want Hopoate walking out the door sooner.

Talau has been fantastic, but if it's a question between keeping Talau on the wing or Hopoate at fullback, I'd be picking Hopoate.

Garrick will move to the wing, though. Given Koula wasn't the whipping boy last year playing at right centre I imagine he'd be moving back there. Tom's best shifts are right to left, and so he'd likely be left/roaming centre.

Bloody good question to have to ask!!!!

I was all for turbo coming back at fb but after the last two weeks, I'm leaning towards lehi fb and
Turbo centre being a better combination. Turbo is still our best player but maybe he can do the good stuff in attack from centre and lehi is so safe at the back.

Garrick to wing and one of the current wings is very unlucky to miss out.

Not safer if you consider how Dad will react to such a decision

🤔 You reckon dad wouldn’t give it the thumbs up?
Dad will be bagging the club,coach,ball boy/girl,line painters.He’ll be questioning TomT’s ability and whether he should be in the team at all and he’ll then threaten to move Lehi to another club unless he’s first picked

I still think Garrick is ahead of Talau as a winger. Sure, Tommy’s surprised us and is doing well but Garrick is a great yardage winger and has superior speed to Talau.

Id put Tom at 3 and keep Lehi in FG. Kid is a generational talent.
Up until round nine I was aligned with your thoughts above, the last few games though Talau has noticeably progressed his game.

No doubt Garrick has superior speed and got Talau covered there, I thought Talau was a band aid solution on the wing, the more I watch Talau if it wasn’t for Garrick’s goal kicking I would keep Talau there.
