Big call, but yea he's been awesome this season, and played a massive game last round. Cemented that 13 AB jersey, even though Kahui has been pretty awesome also.

I honestly dont know why Aussie seem to rate Barnes so highly. I've seen a few games of his and he has only stood out a couple times.

I heard talks of Giteau moving to #12 foor Aussie with Reds duo Genia/Cooper in the halves, what will that mean for Barnes? I know he is vice captain so surely he has to be starting.

well I wouldn't put Barnes in 13, that's for sure. My aussie backline would be this...

15. Hynes
14. Ioane
13. Ashley-Cooper
12. Giteau
11. Mitchell
10. Cooper
9. Genia

20. Burgess
21. Barnes
22. Turner

Hard to say - nobody has been 100% consistent thus far IMO.

Conrad's awesome, no doubt about it, and I'm a big fan of his, but he has some shocking defensive lapses where he comes out of the line alone - either for a spot tackle or to try for the intercept - misses it, and then just leaves a gaping hole behind me...at least once a game...

He does that when he sees there is an overlap so tries to shut it down before it gets too wide, is anything but a lapse

It's all well and good if you pull it off, but when you miss the intercept you leave a big overlap behind you, and if you miss the spot tackle it's even worse...

Carter was very ordinary in the weekend though, very rarely threatened the line and kicked poorly

Exactly - you'd be hard pressed to pick anyone who's consistenly performed thus far...
