Maguire Talks Position Changes

Rabbitohs Head Coach, Michael Maguire, has this week spoken about the positional changes that he has made to his line-up for Round 15.

In the absence of regular halves pairing, Greg Inglis and Adam Reynolds, the tried-and-tested duo of Cody Walker and Luke Keary will wear the six and seven jerseys respectively.

"I reckon they'll be great – I'm very excited,” said Maguire of his halves.

“Unfortunately last week we weren't able to have Luke Keary and he's been providing a lot of energy around the team which has been excellent.

"Having those boys back together, they've had some experiences together so they basically fit straight in there for Adam and Greg."

The changes haven’t been confined to the halves though, with the Club’s outside backs also seeing a change as a result – Alex Johnston shifting to fullback while recent debutant, Siosifa Talakai, will also take his place in the centres.

"Alex Johnston at fullback – it's something he really enjoys and he has shown some really good form there when he's been there so I don't think Walker shifting to six will affect the flow of the team at all," Maguire said.

"AJ has a bit of experience under his belt now and he fits in quite well. Obviously we have certain structures that we play to and the boys can play off the back of that. Their individual brilliance comes out in opportunities off the back of what they're doing."
