IF we don't get Latrell Mitchell for the 2020 season can we jam Jayden Okunbor into centre?

    Yeah I know his defence is terrible but he can run fucking hard and make line breaks, I still think of him running over the top of Smith twice in one game? Any change Okunbor is in Pay's plans for the starting 13 round 1 at centre?

    If we experiment with anyone at centre I’d love Averillo thrown in the deep end and used there.

    Hoppa n Harper will be centres. Unless we get LM than DWZ may be in the centres. We have also 2 young centres coming through. Future is looking good.

    I think Jayden is best on the wing for his carries on kick returns and his height for cross field kicks. He also doesn’t have the best hands and passing is a must for a centre these days

    Has he learned to catch, tackle and side-step yet? If not, he's not worth jamming into FG anywhere.

    I think we line up similar to our last game of the season. Reimis Centre and Okunbor on the Wing.

    I don't see the point in playing Montoya or Holland when they're going to be gone after next year. I guess Harper could come into the equation but I still think Okunbor is better. I also don't know if it's worth to play Reimis for one season in the Centre if he's our long term Winger. Will be interesting to see how this pans out.

    He’s the only player in our squad that can make a line break by himself... seriously... oh and zalezniak... only two guys with pace and power.

    I think Reimis Smith at Centre is a better idea than Okunbor. Smith has some good hands and some footwork as well

    The dogs should hire Idris as JO personal trainer, teach him how to use his size and strength

    Harper will be the other centre option I would have to think. Most likely candidate along with heaps of corse.!!

    Poor Jayden can’t sidestep. I’d chuck in Schoupp for sure. He’s 18 isn’t he?

    On bench at best,defensively he needs to improve,and was tested under the high ball and failed miserably,and doesn't have a step to be a centre

    Yeah, but there was a season or 2 with the dogs where he looked capable of anything.. Waste of talent I reckon, on his part.

    You still think about him running over Cameron but I still think Reubin Garricks three tries at brookvale. Defending at centre looks beyond him to me. Wing or forwards for Jayden.
