    My crystal ball tells me that there might be a shake up in the halves, I see one of the young blokes coming in a some stage, possibly Tracey, we might see Walker on the bench, a victim of his own versatility, one of the dreaded perennial utility victims

    Tracey is the most likely. He has been held back by injury but shows all the signs of a highly skilled and freakishly fit player. If he can avoid serious injury this season, he will be a real contender. The other big movers will be between players like Doueihi, Arthars, Britt and Rodwell. I’m hoping Rodwell lives up to expectation and hits the NRL running.

    I’m in no real hurry for Rodwell & Johnstone to move up too quickly, I’m just happy we have two up & coming Rep props who have real potential, we know front Rowers take a bit longer to find their feet, it’d be nice to just see gradual improvement

    Same. Initially, I thought they might be a chance of first grade around Origin time but after thinking about it further, I think they should both have a season at Norths this year. Then they'll be right in the mix for 2019 as they both have huge potential.

    I'm also hoping Musgrove is a bit more consistent this year and we see some more growth from him not to mention George sorting his stuff out.

    I think we certainly have the potential for another menacing forward pack in the near future.

    Agreed. I doubt we'd have signed Nicholls/Leuluai/Tatola if we were going to roll those two out this season.

    Johnstone may get a game or two at the back end of the year if he really kicks in, but Rodwell is only 18. He's a great talent, but how many 18 year old props are playing NRL?

    Yes Musgrove has a good chance to kick on....

    He's got to cut out that ildiscipline when it's not going his way...

    Douehi should be given any opportunity before Tracey. The RLWC showed he can handle it. We need to hang onto him especially if Cody leaves

    Out of curiosity, have you seen Connor Tracey play?

    Yes in between his massive stints on the sideline.
    I have see Douehi play a lot including in WC and he should be next in line for a crack

    How did you see him play in between his injuries when he hasn't played since his first major one? :joy: Why lie about something like that?

    Or I'm curious about how he could see him between injuries when he hasn't played since his first injury.

    It's not my fault you get overly sensitive/upset whenever people won't take your word as gospel

    Seen him play lower grades coming through for sharks.
    Douehi has more potential and showing more

    Likewise to your point..
    How can anyone say Tracey should get next shot over Douehi when he hasn’t been on the field where Douehi has been doing his time in NYC, then Bears and then Lebanon??

    I think Doueihi is the better player mate, I was just curious as to how you'd seen him play between injuries.

    Tracey's a gun, but I've rated Doueihi since I saw him at a Rugby carnival a few years back.

    His game management/overall ability reminded me of a young Stephen Larkham (only you know, with a kicking game).

    Wouldn’t be suprised if he gets a start at left centre for 2018. He went ok there for Lebanon
