    Aloiai needs to be one of the first forwards picked. If he can cut it in the backrow then he needs to be there. The Huth looks good but he is very similar to Taylor.

    It's going to be tough picking the team.

    And having surgery on his neck as well
    Might be a bit timid next year IF he gets on the field at all
    This was a JT signing so let's hope he retires early.
    Imagine some of the signings if JT was still here in 2019.

    It's a nice & rare problem for this club to have an abundance of NRL standard forwards to choose from.

    I just hope our spine aims up otherwise a quality roster will come to nothing !!!

    I also reckon Gould & Griffin will b hoping our 6 & 7 gel & in particular that our 7 can succeed otherwise there gun no. 7 will b lured to Concord by his old man!!

    Off subject a bit but read on weekend IC has sold his house at Colloroy and purchased a new home at Newport....
    I know he and his family now presently live in Leonay,so very interesting.
    So in 2020 he will save petrol by giving Nathan a lift to training hopefully.

    I'm quite confident that Fonua will b good enough to grab the other wing spot.I also believe Marsters will b very hard to usurp for the other centre spot.I really like this kid.Either way IC will have to find a spot for him in the 17 irrespective of whether Milne proves to IC that he deserves to b in the team.Geez there's a lot to like about our roster for '18.I just hope the spine aim up !!

    It's not a bad roster and as you indicated there are probably 3 or 4 that have been left out of my 20.

    Fonua will be in the starting backline pretty confident. Absolutely killing it in super league ATM

    I rate Milne but I dunno if I'd have him ahead of Marsters atm so I'm a fan of that centre pairing

    I'd swap Liddle for Mcillwrick, more strings to his bow.

    Aloiai for McQueen

    I like Matulino and Twal doll on the bench too, more than capable of replacing our starting props (Grant and Packer)

    Good squad Pop but 9,11 and especially 12 wont be wearing those numbers.

    9. Liddle or Marshall King or Wheelhome.
    11. Lolwrence on bench
    12.This guy probably wont end up playing..he will retire.
    18. he will be a starting 13 player.
    15. The Twal doll will end up u starting prop later in 2018....

    1.I do like Benjesus in 1 though.
    Your actually smarter than what others may think on here.

    Fonua looks good....To replace Milne on wing.
    Sounds like you have mellowed over the weekend.
    Must be the tablets you are taking.

    He must be as rich as you pop to spend 2.3 mill.
    No to the silvers..He's too down to earth to be a silver.
    nope......hope not anyway.
    We need him after 2020

    Most people seem to have Fonoa on the wing but from what I understand of his time at Melbourne and now hull he is an outright centre and struggles on the wing.
    Does anyone else see masters in the back row to accomodate fonoa? Would certainly give size and speed to the back row.
    Also what are the backup fullback options after lolohea? I have read nofo played a lot of fb
