Dont no if anyone is aware but Queensland Reds fullback Mark McLinden has announced his immediate retirement from rugby because of a neck injury.

Im shattered the Reds have already been smashed with player transfers etc.

He did really well at Fullback - will be yet another blow to the Reds.

I'd shift Peter Hynes to fullback I reckon. A big blow for the Reds though, things aren't looking good for the 2010 super 14.

that sucks, he wasnt that bad. there backline has definitely been shot at, i think there backline will be very poor

9. Will Genia
10. Quade Cooper
11. Digby Iaone
12. Morgan Turinui
13. Will Chambers
14. Peter Hynes
15. Rod Davies

2 rugby league converts getting a go next year i reckon, a spot opens up for davies and chambers should get the centre spot. after cooper/iaones success in the australia team they could easily get those 2 spots for the reds. going to be a long off season for them i reckon

Put Iaone at Centre IMO - he was lethal there this year.

Morgan Turinui = biggest lard-ass in the Super 14...or maybe second behind Dunning...and Lauaki...OK they're all lard-asses Smile
