Gagai or Gidley to No. 1

  • Gagai or Gidley to No. 1

Itís not a crisis, itís only Round 2. Thatís the message as coach I would deliver to the players ahead of this weeks home match against Canberra.

Although Darius Boyd is in doubt Kurt Gidley and Tyrone Roberts will be right to play. With Boyd absent, that leaves Wayne Bennett with a few options to fill the role at fullback. Dane Gagai impressed in the trial match in Tamworth against the Raiders 3 weeks ago at fullback and is the likely candidate for the position. The other option could see a blast from the past with Kurt Gidley returning to the number 1 jersey.

Michael Dobson played well in his debut for the club last weekend and should keep his spot, meaning Roberts to stay at halfback and Gidley would slot into hooker or the fullback role. Seeing that Gidley has been training in the off season at hooker I expect him to remain at 9. This way the structure of team is not imbalance too much.
