  • If no Teddy then Whoís Fullback?

    Is likely Teddy will be rested v Melbourne.

    Morris would have been the obvious choice but I donít think a guy without match fitness could handle this position. i think Latrell is too lazy for fullback at NRL level.

    Who do we use?

    Hopefully Morris will be back soon.

      If he is back v Melb and Teddy is out, he wonít be match fit for such an important position which involves so much running.

        He is the only legitimate option to replace Teddy, an 80% match fit Morris would be the best option we have.

          It only involves a lot of running because players like Mini, Slater and now Teddy have evolved that position into that kind of style. Whatís basically needed at fullback is someone who can catch bombs, make good tackles and be able to read the oppositions attack in our line. We can forgo all that Teddy brings into the game at this time as long as whoever is at FB can defend his arse off.

            Thought the suggestion was Teddy was out tomorrow (which might be a possibility).

            If he pulls up from Origin 2 okay, maybe play him v Melbourne and then give him the game off v Cowboys, by which time BMoz might have some match fitness.

                  Morris ATM reminds of those guys at work who are on compo and never want to get back to normal duties...

                    Joey Manu would be a great fullback.
                    he just doesn't get enough ball , our right side attack..... where is it ?

                      Manu for me, itíll get him the ball more. Lats would be my second choice but Iím not sure if he can last 80 in the position

                        The Roosters just released the pictures of the captains run. I did not see Teddy in any photos at all!! Wouldnt be surprised if he is rested tomorrow but plays against Melbourne.

                          Brett Morris was participating in the Captains Run today as was Keary/JWH, pretty good indication that Morris is close to returning.

                            Great idea! Manu needs to run the ball a bit more....a change to fullback for a week may help

                            Geez some of you are tough on Brett Morris. Give him a break-im sure he is busting his arse to get back onto the field. Everyone was kissing his arse after the Challenge Cup game. Its a long season.....his return may prove to handy at the right time

                              Morris is back to full training, Keary non-contact training.
