How to know which side of the field to select players on

    Heh, your centre combination makes it difficult as well. Best is definitely a hole-runner more than anything else so you'd want him on Prince's side in theory, but you wouldn't say Williams/Aubusson had a great rate of beating tackles one-on-one and that'd be the centre getting 65% or so of the ball, from the less creative player.

    And yeah, there will be trials.

    Oh, trials will be sick.
  3. Cribbage RG Cribb

    If you name really stupid teams though I just won't bother, lol. Use them to try out combinations, not to waste my time.
  4. Boobidy BJ Gemmell

    I'm talking about trialling Fien/Tony/Dobson/Withers, ****wit.
  5. Cribbage RG Cribb

    Ahh okay, I thought you had visions of Ashton Sims lining up at halfback.

    Currently spliting my side this way.


    Craig Wing -
    Steve Menzies
    Michael Weyman
    Matt Rogers/Matt King
    Israel Folau


    Michael Monas
    Anthony Laffranchi
    Petero Civo
    Darius Boyd

    Not sure whether to play Wing or Rogers as my creative half. As I want to use Folau on the wing on the creative side so he can pwn ****s taking bombs. And with Rogers and King I don;t know which of the two is more suited to playing either roles tbh.

    Zillman will play fullback and Sutton will play lock and chime in on both sides I assume?
  7. Boobidy BJ Gemmell

    Yeah, with Fien/Tony/Dobson/Withers at 5/8.
  8. Benny BS Read

    Thinking Rogers to play on the side which requires hole running as i reckon King/Folau would be a better tackle breaker, King would play the creative sides winger given he's a better aerial winger than Boyd IMO
  9. Magic AJ Parker

    Switch? Not sides... as in prop inside backrower...
  10. Cribbage RG Cribb

    Best side for hole-running will be the side that has the half with the best creativity rating.. even if it happens to be your primary organiser as well. The backs on the opposite side to the primary organiser will get more ball, however.
  11. Ged GEC King

    Would you not consider swapping Boyd and Zillman, Benny?
  12. Benny BS Read

    Yeah was just the way I typed it out. My Props will obv play in tighter than my backrowers lol
  13. Benny BS Read

    Really really don;t rate Boyd as a fullback tbh. That said it could be an option. As is Greenshields, still haven't hammerred down who will play fullback as yet.
  14. Cribbage RG Cribb

    If you have good hole-running centres, a creative fullback is always a good idea, btw.
  15. Benny BS Read

    Whichever team has Gidley should defo play him at Fullback and pick hole running centres like Pomeroy IMO
  16. Ged GEC King

    haha. I don't even know what Yeaman is. I'd say that Tate's more a hole runner so should go well with Hunt.
  17. Boobidy BJ Gemmell

    Hmmm. Gamblers don't really have many hole runners.
  18. Cribbage RG Cribb

    Gidley's playing in the halves because Smith's hooker. Their whole team works completely differently to every other team though, they might as well not read this thread. :p
  19. Benny BS Read

    Thoughts on moving Monas to Hooker having him play a Smith like organiser role which he'd be good at and having 2 of Wing, Sutton, Rogers or Mclinden play in the halves?
  20. Lukic L Popovic

    Well I'm just glad I've got a gun organizer in Sherwin and a gun creative half in Locky.

    I'm going to put Inu on the metreage side to get more ball, and have Delaney play outside Lockyer to help him with defence that bit more. I'm also contemplating Rooney on the creative side cause he's decent under the high ball and is a better finisher than Quinn.

    Rooney, Delaney, Williams, Lockyer, Shillington/Puletua. Looks ok.
