How many players do we need to play out of position ?

Tommy is our number 1
Tommy hasn't played enough games the past two seasons to he our number 1 at the moment the only number one he is right now is the number 1 drain on the salary cap

Maybe so Tag, but at present we have no one who is seemingly even half the fullback Tommy is. Maybe Koula or even Weekes may rise to a comparable status, but thats some way off. Top fullbacks cost big money. Without them...well it explains part of Manly's problem of late. You have to outlay big bickies for full back, 5/8, half and hooker...the spine. Weakness in any of those positions results in an also ran status for the team.

And you can't pay 1mill a year for a centre, no matter how good he is.

Is that worse than paying $1 mill a year for a fullback who never plays?

I get that getting him on the field is important, but really, he's going to be required to run, tackle and stretch out those fragile hammies no matter where he lines up. Either he's fit to play or he isn't.

yep and if he isn't err on the side of caution
