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.

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.
