I think it is great that farrah has moved to the half back role as he carved us up last year at Leichhardt in the hooker positon.

I don't rate him as anywhere near as dangerous at half back.

There is talk today that Marshall and Hodgson may yet play

Haven't heard anything but that's what it smelt like to me.

Desperate to win & not play him?????? Nah.

More likely trying to pressure NZ to use Marshall sparingly so he's fresh and uninjured and a last-minute surprise. I'd be surprised (pleasantly) if Marshall & Hodgson don't play.
