Have the socks changed this year?

From the captaincy photo shoot, it looked like we've gone back to gold only socks (just a bit of brown at the stop), rather than the striped look.

Can anyone confirm?

One other note, does someone get Scully's 21 jumper? A late upgrade or we just keep it vacant for a year?

From memory, when Danny Jacobs retired before the start of the year, X.Ellis made a late switch from 32 to 8.

Moore to 21 would be awesome but not convinced we'll see any movement on jumper numbers this late.

Can't re-allocate jumper mid season so we have to assume BB plays out the whole year, even if it means we play him CHB/FF or any other place that he shouldn't be played in, that negatively impacts the side.
F**k me you got BB being capt for just 1 season.:rolleyes:

^ this is what l meant ^

If he’s not burdened with playing ruck each week and he can be used as a utility, he may well be.

He’s looking super fit at the moment.
I agree with this.

I don't think it's good for the side unless the slimming down has afforded him an increase in speed, but I agree that what you said is likely correct.

In fairness, I think BB @ CHB will work better this year than it did last year (2020), as will Cegs in the ruck.

If we're serious then BB rucking and resting forward(always good of a goal or two a game) is where he is best suited.
If Hartigan & DGB go alright he won't required down back.
Gee's he'd clunk marks & kick more goals than Timmy & Lewis combined.
