That's why I added inverted commas! When your number one move is shifting Wighton to the wing and bringing in Abbey at fullback... that's surely grounds for sacking by NRL.com!

NRL "pundit" Jamie Soward believes Canberra should have attempted to sign Wigan half-back George Williams ahead of 2019

With the loss of Blake Austin, Jamie Soward believes Canberra is lacking a star half and thinks they should have made an offer to sign George Williams from the Wigan Warriors.

“No disrespect to Sam Williams or Aiden Sezer, but they just don’t scare me in terms of their attack. “The Raiders have missed their chance and I think it’s because they have not got a strike or a top 10 half-back over the last four or five years, and now they have lost their x-factor player in Austin.

Williams looks well above average but always a gamble spending big money on an English half that is untried in the NRL. But he is worth the gamble if the money was available.

Williams is good but has a marquee spot already so wouldn't come cheap as far as Superleague players go.

1 - Wighton
2 - Cotric
3 - Croker
4 - Leilua
5 - Oldfield
6 - Sezer
7 - Williams ( 14 )
8 - Soliola
9 - Hodgson ( 7 )
10 - Papalii
11 - Tapine
12 - J.Bateman
13 - Whitehead

14 - Havili ( 9 )
15 - Sutton
16 - Lui
17 - Guler / L.Bateman

That’s how the team will be named but the ( brackets ) will be the team that runs out. I don’t agree with it but I have a sneaky suspicion that’s going to happen.
