    Meaney to fullback is a good call.
    He has improved steadily all season and is now one of our best in reserve grade, so 4 games of firstgrade might be a great way for him to finish the year.

    Still a lot to prove yet for Meaney, but it blows my mind people were suggesting Bryce Donovan was a better option at the start of the year.

    Donovan was a better option at the start of the year. Meaney was awful for the first month of reserve grade. He looked like he'd take years to get used to the physicality of seniors, but it only took him half a season.

    Same team as today with Elliott/Meaney fullback for injured Ross and if SKD fit in for Sio/Chanel.
    Notice teams listed all leave Sio out.

    Meaney will get a run. Brown even said earlier in the year he may get some games at the end of the season

    With the cup side still chasing a finals berth, would it be wise to leave Meaney there doing his best to get them there??
    Bring Elliot in imo, he does a sound job and wont break up the cup spine.

    Makes sense either is good, whatever happens hope we don't bleed the u/20, they could make top four etc.

    Yeah I was thinking that he is no superstar that's for sure but he does his job, if we want x factor wingers we should have kept uate.

    Same as Billy, just put Gagai in his rightful spot. At this point in the season, with a slim chance of avoiding the spoon, I'd rather run Elliot at FB, and leave meaney in the cup squad.

    Makes sense hey? Cup has a finals berth to keep hold of, why break up that spine to give Meaney a fg run by default... he will get a go next yr im sure of that.

    Yeah I'm torn on whether to give Meaney a run in the firsts or leave him to get us into the reggies finals, the fact he won't be the NRL fullback next year makes me think there is little point giving him a crack .......

    Don't really want to see Elliot there he adds little at fullback but we have not many options ......

    Seems Pete will be fullback with SKD coming back into the team at centre.

    Why are people dropping Sio who was excellent bar the first 10 seconds and keeping Chanel who's poor defensive decisions cost us 2 tries?

    If Meaney doesn't get a run at 1sts f/back now then we won't know how he will go, Ponga next year, but what happens if Ponga gets injured etc do we then throw Meaney in untried, Pete might not be here next year and prefer Ross on wing.
    Yes play Elliot if he is best option, feel sorry for him, seems he is the fill in man, no defined position or grade.
    Whatever happens full back should be Elliott or Meaney for rest of season.
