    I would rotate him with Verrils. We are good enough and strong enough to handle that and Jake can also defend as a backrower.

      The GF's a long way away, but after this week it's all knock out football, so same issue.

      You'd want to know how he's looking in training.

      Trust in Trent.

        Would Robbo, is the more important question. Id say, yes he would without a moments hesitation.

        Verrills looks good so far and the chookpen loves him because hes shiny and new but hes just a kid with a handful of games. Friend will be an automatic selection as soon as hes ready I would say.

          Agree with the rotation idea. Said it in another thread.

            +1. The precedence was set playing Cronk with a busted shoulder.

              Of course. Cant beat experience. If fit he plays.

                Verrills has passed every test & won accolades from the coach

                Being it's fair dinkum on Black Friday night....

                Should we get the win much pressure will be off both Jake & Trent

                  It's a good question PG. Friend has the experience but is short of match practice. Verrills hasn't done too much wrong and does give good service from dummy-half and could be a bit of a wildcard and potentially be a 'finals type' player - time will tell but so far I like the look of him.

                  If I had to choose, I would go with Verrills as he is more match fit. Regardless, (if we do get that far) of whom TR chooses, I would only play one of the two and have three big boppers on the bench and Maubs as he can cover many positions (thinking centre if one of the backs gets injured and adjust accordingly). I base this on the fact Radley can fill in at hooker.

                    During the 5 games Friend has played this year he's had very little rhythm and did a heap of silly forward passes. Not his fault... had he played all year he woulda found his mojo. However, he didn't.

                    Also, he's got a broken arm. What if the screw breaks again, he gets infected, flakes of bone need to be cleaned out...etc. The cycle of injury continues! No. Let him go on an early holiday, recover up and come back stronger in 2020.

                          i think jake gets to right this season off, this season its verrils turn they can fight for the position next season?

                            Yes he plays. I think the tough question is....Do you carry Verrills on the bench?? For me its a no. If Jake needs s rest, then Rads slots into hooker (which I hate). But it gives us an extra pig on the bench

                              If we make the Grand Final and Jake is made available only for the Grand Final I think it's criminal if Sam misses out, He's one of the guys who got us there. Must carry Sam on the bench if they want to pick Jake if not see ya next year.
