    This guy needs to be kept at 5/8. He’s potentially the best half we have at the club aside from Foran. Partnered by either Wakeham or Cogger take your pic.

    If the Footy is on then it's a no brainer to just go with Averillo/Wakeham...yes they will make mistakes but their ceiling and current skillset is far higher than anyone else we have while the two of them actually compliment each other's game and bring key skills to the side that we lack.

    If Pay goes down this route then he has to let them stick to what they're good at and not put so many limitations on them like he has currently done with Wakeham. When Foz is back then we try to find a way to fit all 3 in the 17.

    Yes it should be a no brainer with Averillo/Wakeham halves pairing but unfortunately I have little faith in Pay’s team selections. Any astute coach wouldn’t have Lewis in the best 17 of our roster albeit an average one at that.

    Dylan Brown is one of the most over rated players in the game at the minute. He had huge wraps and hasn't done much at all yet.

    Let's not fall into the same trap with Averillo he has a lot of talent but just let him develop with out a high expectations.

    Averillo has class and x factor. I have absolutely no doubt he is the best young talent we have seen for a long time. He 100% belongs in the halves. Lets just hope we have a club and a game left after all this for him to play for.

    Some one to get excited about no doubt... but only 20 odd minutes of NRL really so far. Give him time.

    Exactly he needs more time which Pay needs to give him barring comp postponement/cancellation.

    Yes anyone with knowledge of the game would see that he has serious talent!

    I’d rather Foran/AV halves combo. I believe they would compliment each other really well. Nick Meaney should be at fullback now.

    The guy has played all of 15 minutes against a team that got carved up the previous week, let him at least get into the side on a regular basis first. I remember not long ago people were comparing Lachlan Lewis to JT

    Nasheed here,
    A lot of people raving about Averillo? For what? A try saving ankles tackle on Coen Hess?

    I remember Frawley being talked up as the next Ricky Stuart, Lichaa the next Benny Elias , Ben Roberts the next Benji Marshall and Damien Cook the next.... actually scrap that last one!

    my point is, just hold your horses a bit and see. We have a good halves pairing when we are back in Lewis and Foran and we can see what rises and sinks over the course of the season. Then let's start the hype when we see consistency.

    I'd keep Lewis for his defence. Maybe in the back row or at lock?
