Yeah Gutho may be a marginally better player (or maybe not, it's a bit of a toss up IMO) but Lomax is clearly a better centre. The biggest question marks over Lomax were over his defence, and Gutho's defence in the centres has left a lot to be desired anyway. He hasn't offered any of the surprise 'wrong side' sweep movements that Turbo and Hayne have offered from 'fullback at centre' selections in the past either. As Parramatta captain Gutho is the King of the Spuds but I like him anyway. I think I'd bench him. We don't need a prop and three locks on the bench and his ability to play to 1-7 and 9 to at least first grade standard is really useful in the HIA era.
