    Great episode guys – it’s a vital line. At the moment, I have Speakano and RoMar – set and forget returns to the fold. I have Cameron in the FWD line as a bit of insurance, but I will be watching his role closely, and how they play Cox.

    I’m thinking of doing the same as Daicos4Brownlow with my Rucks. Plus I’m thinking of going Edwards (Nth) as my 3rd Ruck plus Ryan as Utility as they both have R/F status. That way if D Cameron is needed as a replacement Ruck you can also use either Ryan or Edwards as a forward. Just as long as you use another DPP in the forward line such as Tsitas.
