Isn't George Burgess suspended for Round 1?
Sure is George out first 3 rounds
Well spotted they stuffed up
Yep, and Doueihi won't be available for Round 1 either.
I wouldn’t be surprised if Sam starts in the second row, Wayne has played him there for England a few times.

Starting pack without Gurgess will likely be;
Bennett will turn Knight into a Ben Teo mark2. Bennett loves big tough backrowers. He has history with the likes of Tallis, Jeremy Smith, Beau SCOTT, Tony Carrol and Brad Thorn. He targets tough backrowers and uses them to full effect.
Very interesting selection. The trials will tell a LOT this year. Definitely need to find any Te’o.
Edit- Knight isn’t in our 30 on the website. Interesting that Robert Jennings is listed in the 30.
I could be wrong, but I think Ben Te'o is off contract at the end of this Yawnion season. Should Richo bring him home? He will be 32 or 33 yrs old by then.
The current 30 will change and Knight will be in the 30. He was highly rated along the lines of a Cameron Murray but hit a rocky road off field.
He won’t come back to NRL.
A lot of water has passed under the bridge since 2014. Back then TE’O swore he’d never set foot in the NRL again. But you never, ever, know. Sammy’s a single man again, maybe they can share a bachelor pad again, could be 2014 all over again
True. They can’t fit both him and Denniss in, so likely Denniss will just be an NSWCup signing.
Its my opinion both player were signed as depth signings with Knight ranked higher in the order. We have players like Gagan and Sam Johnstone who will have to make way for Dennis and Knight. The later two definitely have more upside in their selection.
Gagan I agree, but I think Johnstone has potential and needs a lift in grade. He may spend all season in NSWCup, but I reckon that dangling carrot of potential NRL call up is what will bring his game to the level required. I think these trial games will be the most interesting since the 2012 preseason. Can’t wait to see what unfolds. Also can’t wait to watch a real Bunnies reserve grade out of Redfern Oval this year. Glory Glory.
Great to see they are brining back the Return To Redfern match this preseason!! Can’t wait to see all 3 grades line up v The Panthers, who are top notch in all 3 grades. Can’t wait for tickets to go on sale to members. This might sell out fast.
Edit: The NSWCup side won’t be playing RTR. It’s NRL, Harold Matts, Flegg and SG Ball.

Great to see all the boys back from their break! It's especially great to see GI and Gags make their return.
It's gonna be a great event bro and I'm so happy they've brought it back. Hopefully the game will be live streamed too but we'll see.
Good to see Adam Douehi running, and Sammy with a big smile on his face.
Hmmm, that's really good to hear!!!
