Still can't understand why olpherts had such a raw deal when he was with us - better and faster than aikedere IMO.


Only problem is really, olpherts was a fullback, and akaidere is a winger, olpherts wasn't used much because craven is better.

Speaking of memory, where is the Boxing Day match being played this year? Kick-off time?

I haven't been to one for a few years, so that's my excuse. :unsure:

It's at Mount Pleasant. Not sure the Bulldogs have confirmed the kick-off time yet, but it's usually 12.00/12.30.

I think the two positions are interchangeable TBH, Zak Hardacre doesn't do a bad job at fullback for a player who has spent most of his career on the wing. That does lead to another point though - if JC were to gets injured, there doesn't appear to much cover at fullback - Austin wasn't too good on the odd occasion he played there and Akaidere is too small. Rhodes or Morton could possibly do the job, but it's not really a position you can afford to experiment with.

I'd put Morton there because he can play fullback I believe, that was if craven was to be injured
