Bowen has been great all season, or even Barba could pretty much play anywhere in the backs

I think Farah has had a decent season also but it just doesnt make sense picking him, unless he was picked as a bench forward who can cover hooker & backrow, lock, 5/8th etc

true, they have played a more creative forwards game this season, but if they have to start losing players due to salary cap restrictions its generally the forwards who get shuffled around, i still think they're seen as more dispensible, its as if they can be moulded into a role by some of these modern day coaches who rely on a more rigid structure compared to days gone by

But you're right, ifd you do get a really good ball playing forward like some of the Dogs or Glen Stewart, Sam Thaiday, even Burgess, they're keepers also & nearly as important as your playmakers

Highly doubt they aren't going to be over the cap TBH.

I listened to the audio and it didn't sound like him. I suspect a staffer or hanger on...in the footage someone was ashing a ciggy out the same window that the abuse came from.

It was reported all over the place that Ennis was happy to talk to the journalists & came out & answered some questions etc, so i doubt it was him

You really need to brush up on whats going on in the world of Rugby League son

Ennis is just a **** on the field apparently. Meant to be a relatively nice guy off it.

My bad, I was posting with the idea that the dogs won the GF - I offer my sincerest apologies but I think you know what I was getting at.
