Not sure at this stage but I'm not a fan of Cotric inside of JAC. Don't think JAC will get the best ball unless Cotric makes some changes to his running style.
I’d definitely throw Hoppa inside JAC. If he’s still here in 22.
But next year anyway

You aren’t comparing that trio to yours ?
Flanagan has the potential to be as good as Hughes. Hopoate is already way better than Lee. At his best DWZ is better than Vunivalu, hopefully Barrett makes him get back to his best. So yes I did compare them.

Add JAC and 1 of Crichton or Staggs for 2022

Although I don't think this will be the case, this is what I'd like to see for 2021. Changes for 2022 would see Hoppa drop out, Cotric to centre, Burton to 5/8 and JAC to the wing. Developing Avo and Schoupp is a risk but means we don't need to go out into the market for Crichton/Staggs if he turns out good. Can put those $$$ to a hooker.

1 Avo
2 Cotric
3 Schoupp
4 Hoppa
5 DWZ
6 Benji
7 Flanagan

Has this been quoted?
Has he played there before?
yes and yes, TB also came out on an interview and stated he would be given first crack. This may or may not change if we dont get Burton for next year.

Both at their best, give me Vunivalu over DWZ every time.
DWZ has been average more than he’s been excellent for the Bulldogs.

Vunivalu's up there with JAC for the best winger in the competition (real big loss to the game he's going to Rugby), I'd probably say he's better suited for lower level teams too playstyle wise. You can't compare Vunivalu and DWZ, it's night and day.

At his bes DWZ is surely better then vunivalu, he even become a the kiwi captain that’s not because he is garbage.
