    I know it won't happen but This is what I would do. It's a good chance to mix it up:

    1. Tedesco
    2. Nofoaluma
    3. Suli
    4. Idris
    5. Naquima
    6. Moses
    7. Littlejohn
    8. Woods
    9. McIllwrick
    10. Seumanifangi
    11. Sue
    12. CheeKam
    13. Taylor

    14. Aloiai
    15. Ballin
    16. Grant
    17. Felisse/Tatola

    Sorry Chris, you're a legend of the club and a great guy but you've been terrible 2 weeks in a row. Not saying your career is over but we need to elsewhere for now.

    Luke head back to nsw cup and we'll see if you act like you give a shit there

    Idris sink or swim. Suli played right centre all his juniors, he isn't a winger. Kev last chance outside Idris on the left.

    Felisse or Tatola on the bench, whoevers looked better in nsw cup

    Vic u've chosen a competitive side.We need idris to b fit & get back to his best asap.I like the idea of young Suli playing centre.Littlejohn & moses will complement each other it's a good combination.Chee-kam & Kev must never b our centres again.Defensively they r attrocious.

    If only the coaching staff have the cahoonas to drop the totally pathetic Brooks.I can't c that happening.

    Word is that Brooks is off to Bulldogs. If this is the case then we should start blooding JLJ as our halfback asap.

    I can't see how Idris cannot be fit, sure he may not be fully match fit, it was said that he had a great off season, but f**k he is playing at centre, it's not as if he is called on for every set like the forwards. Surely he can push himself a bit more. I wonder what he is being paid.

    Is that an upgrade?

    Not a fan of how Brooks is playing but JLJ won't be the answer....

    I could have strangled the so and so when he dropped that ball 5 metres out after they made that break from the drop out when it was still 6-6....

    3 minutes later it's 18-6 game over..

    Strong advocate of that team, id even consider Aloiai replacing Chee Kam in the starting team otherwise that's what I would have aswell

    Team selection will be interesting with new coach

    It's going to be a challenge for Webster in the coming weeks...but I don't think he's going to walk in and drop the likes of Brooks and Lawrence...sure - If they don't perform for him in the weeks to come then he can make some bold moves but for next week...I'd like to see something like this;
    1. Tedesco
    2. Nofa
    3. Chee Kam
    4. Idris
    5. Suli
    6. Moses
    7. Brooks
    8. Woods
    9. Ballin
    10. Grant
    11. Lawrence
    12. Aloiai
    13. Taylor
    14. McIllwrick
    15. Ava
    16. Sue
    17. Felise

    -> Sure there is a bit of a risk with MCK and Idris at centre, however, I think it can be better covered with Lawrence and Aloiai defending the edges with them (and the 6 & 7 who just have to aim up better in defence) as CL & JA are our best lateral backrow defenders.
    -> as for Ballin...I think as we are in crisis we just need to ask him to step up probably a bit earlier than we or he would've like to...McIllwrick can possibly end up playing more minutes than Ballin but I think his experience and grit might be neccesary given the current circumstances. We need ET and Ballin to lead!

    Have Ballin on at that 10 min period before Half time where we f**king suck

    For some reason we take all our leaders off at the same time, and surprise surprise we suffer

    Yeah bit deflating, though I don't expect Webster to rock the boat too much. I'll be shocked if we run out that 1-17 on Sunday. Will wait til then before I lose my mind.

    We won't see the changes we want but he's literally been head coach for less than 24 hours so give him a chance

    Idris should be in reserves to prove himself. Tatola should replace Edwards. That would be enough for me at this point.

    I just never want to see Lovett out there plodding it up ever again.

    So has Littlejohn been dropped ? Because why would they name Hunt?

    Doesn't make sense at all. Surely JLJ is higher in the pecking order than Hunt?

    No but he is big and has some wraps on him & Edwards is pretty ordinary. I think it's worth a punt.

    He is rated better than Felise and we've seen Felise play before so it's worth giving him a crack

    Meanwhile we've seen Edwards plod around for years

    Apples with apples though.

    Lower grade stats are great, but the big show is the big show.

    Remember Brookes yeah?
