No they're not. They're saying Marsh is a break-glass option behind Frawley if absolutely needs be.

Just spent a few seconds imagining Rhys Ruddock playing at 10...

I know he's not everyone's favourite, but it's another option at the very least.

I reckon Frawley is ready to play the role we need him to play anyway. He performed well when we needed him last year.

The problem is if Byrne gets injured though, as someone already pointed out. We were blessed to have Byrne and Carbery last year with the level they're both at.
My recollection of Reid playing 10 with the academy is that he was fairly conservative with his kicking game. I can't think of him even teasing kicks from hand at 12.

he never kicks from play at 12, utterly predictable average player.. says a lot about the other options developed at 12 that he has so many caps this decade.

Yea without Carberry it narrows the options. RB has got to stay healthy. It's also a massive year for him as he could push on to the rwc squad.
Frawley may be a godsend and may be a good bench option. He certainly will be pumped up now that he's 3rd 10 on the team. Hope he kicks on and has a stormer of a year.

Safe pair of hands on Frawley. Excited for the year ahead

Is there anything he can't do?

Stay fit :(

I worry about Ruddock. He's had an awful history of injuries. Hopefully, he can stay fit and if he does he will certainly be an option for the international team. His form last year was outstanding.
Warburton retiring kind of makes one think of guys like Ruddock.

I'd be more thinking of O'Brien. He has a worse injury history and closer to Warburton's age.
[Thank]

Right, I'm not holding too much hope for O'Brien.
I think his health issues are going to derail him and sometime soon. Shame if happens.
