    RFM is pretty good don't get me wrong. But I really think Martin should be in the 13 because he is a beast goal kicker and might be like Hazem and we need to breed him more than RFM.

    I would put Martin on the bench and play a more aggressive back rower in the run on side. Holland can kick very well.

    Yeah Holland's a GOOD kicker but he has what a 76% and Martin has a 96%. Who would you want?

    Holland has kicked like 15 straight though? I’m not sure what happened this season but once Mbye left everybody learned how to kick properly. Maybe he was hogging all the training sessions?

    Martin needs to get the silly penalties out of his game as I think that is his biggest flaw right now. RFM is coming off a serious knee injury so there’s no harm with him starting on the bench until he demands a starting spot due to great form.

    I think the form of Elliot to finish the season gives him first shot at the #13.
    Given RFM is coming back from a pretty serious knee injury, he should start from the bench providing us with some impact. I’d have CHN in the #14 covering for any outside backs injuries mid game.

    11. Jackson
    12. Martin
    13. Elliot

    14. CHN
    15. RFM

    Both. RFM off the bench. He can go missing playing long minutes and we need our ace kicker on the field always.

    I wouldn't put a back on the bench I'd rather RFM fill in for Tolman off the bench and fulalaluo (can't spell his name right dry) starts in ISP

    Martin has been a regular 84% kicker the past few years in reserve grade so if next season he's goalkicking drops back to what it usually is then I'd prefer RFM in there every day of the week. The only aspect Martin is better in is he's 95% goalkicking.

    If he improves, I can see him as the next Pritchard.

    RFM is better but Martin wouldn’t have much impact off the bench so maybe we have to go Martin to get our best 17 on the park. Martin starts or goes to NSW CUP

    I think rfm will provide more impact off the bench against tired defences

    For me he has to get more involved and learn to run lines, theres too much sideways running from him
