    Looking at the front page there is only 26 guys in the squad, do the development players count?

    I'm still worried about our depth in the spine specifically the No.6 and No.1 spots !

    At this point Ross is the backup fullback whilst Lino is covering 6 & 7, if we were to suffer a couple of injuries we don't have the depth in this area IMO

    Funnily enough we probably have 1 too many props now lol

    Lee and Hunt can play F/b if needed along with Ponga and Watson , Lino can cover 6 and 7 as can Ponga and Pearce and Watson covers 6 as well .
    Just my opinion but I reckon Buhrer can play any position on the field if you ask him too and he would do a fairly good job ..If he can get into the side to start with .
    If we get Mann it makes the whole thing different again Buhrer and Lino wouldn't make the bench then I don't think . If we get Mann I think we will be right for depth and if we don't then see what other utilities are out there .

    Can't say I've seen Hunt play fullback and Lee isn't a great fullback tbh he'd just be a fill in if we required.

    It's not just about covering for injuries it's about covering for form, there's no guarantees Watson will be a gun fullback, so if things don't work out there we really don't have that many options

    If Watson can play like he did against Canterbury for us consistently we’ll be sweet.

    Just because they can slip into their, doesn't mean they should. Neither of those guys would be anywhere close to an NRL standard fullback. They're the kind of players we would have used there in 2016. If you don't wanna put Ross back there, then you're not gonna want those guys back there either. We need genuine cover if we wanna still win games with injuries.

    Worst comes to worst though, we can just put Ponga back there for a few games.

    Just talking a fullback injury. Lino can easily slot straight in. If we have a fullback & a half injury at the same time, that's a different issue. Preferably we could pick up someone that can play both positions like Mann.

    I'm surprised they've kept Slade in the top 30 considering he'd virtually no chance of getting on the paddock in 2019 (certainly no more than a couple of games at most).

    You don't get to drop someone out if they are injured, unless they are being medically retired.

    They were talking about a concession if your player gets injured in a rep game, don't know if that got in.

    So the Raiders getting dispensation for Hodgson and possibly Rapana for long-term injuries is a different scenario?

    Pardon my ignorance, was just asking the question. It wasn't clearly explained at the time.

    The rep game concessions must have been approved? Rapana injured playing for Kiwis and Hodgson for Poms.
