Freddie supports Tupu on top of the ado-car for important wing spots

In his first interview with the Brad Fitler Blues team announcement, the current Josh doubles down on the decision to pick Sydney roosters winger Daniel Tupau ahead of Ado-Carr.

The big calls for Freddie’s selection were the wing positions, which Ado-Carr had made in his time in Melbourne, and the need for two new centers due to injuries to Lateral Mitchell and Tom Trobozevich.

Tupau last played in 2020 – along with the Ado-Car – his height – from 196 cm to 183 cm by Fox – is thought to have kept him in balance, especially if Queensland chose Javier Coates and Selwin Cobbo, both of whom are over 190 cm tall. .

Fitler said the reaction was that he thought his choice was unusual.

“I wonder if people will be surprised,” said the Nine News coach. “He has been the best winger for many years.

“I’ve coached Tups before on the City team and at the State of Origin and have always liked him as part of my team.”

Regarding the selection of new centers by Cotoni Stags and Stephen Crichton, Fitler said that their ability to decide on the defensive side of the ball is the main reason.

“It’s a pretty clever position and defensively it’s extremely important,” he said. “Our centers have a lot of work to do and some big decisions to make, but at the end of the day, it’s about the team and I don’t think it will cost you a position.

“We are very confident in the team we have and look forward to meeting all the boys.”

Earlier, the Bulldogs’ captain and coach, Josh Jackson and Mick Potter, backed their man ado-car for the blues gig.

“He’s a responsible player and he’s a very good original player,” Potter said. “I would have been surprised if he had not been in the team. I’ll be disappointed for Josh, I hope it’s not.

Jackson added: “He was really good at that origin, he’s been a part of it for years now and he’s put in some great performances.

“The energy he brings around a place is quite contagious so I can imagine Brad Fitler wanting to be in his camp all week.”
