    That is the scary thing, everyone is saying it's a weak side but we are only really missing 3 players.
    Yes one of those players are one of the best in the comp, but Ricky has a massive job on his hands with this side this year.

    Will be interesting to see how the inexperienced forwards go. Hopefully they are or are close to ready to step up. Once upon a time we had forwards like both Hindmarshes, Ryan, Vella, sullivan and the caylesses starting out and their names looked weak on paper but didn't take that long to find their feet.

    Actually I think it may be a trick question so I will say the edge backrower.

    If anyone thinks this trial side is crap, have a look at the sharks side Ricky took to the finals in 2008:

    That is one average side.

    Greg bird is missing, as he was suspended by the club late in the season.

    Amazingly this team finished equal on points with the storm and eagles.

    The following year the sharks were in financial troubles, and the rest is history

    In Ricky we trust.

    How is this a weak side? This is close to full strength, I think they will surprise a few people.

    Going through the side...

    1. Jake Mullaney (Solid looked like a handy back up last year)
    2. Ken Sio (Plenty of promise)
    3. Ryan Morgan (with the experience gained last year I think he has really improved)
    4. Willie Tonga (On name should be a superstar, could reclaim the form)
    5. Cheyse Blair (A potent attacking weapon at times)
    6. Luke Kelly (Really looked great guiding the side around last year)
    7. Chris Sandow (Had a bad year but he can bounce back)
    8. Darcy Lussick (Aggressive and strong)
    9. Matt Keating (Underrated the amount of work he gets through will top tackle counts without Hindy)
    10. Tim Mannah (Needs to develop a passing game or sidestep but solid)
    11. Matt Ryan (Made a huge leap forward last year)
    12. Daniel Harrison (I rate him as a future talent)
    13. Joseph Paulo (We all saw what he can do to teams if he gets support)
    14. Ben Roberts (Meh...But when he attacks at 5/8 with Hayne, he looked good)
    15. Fuifui Moimoi (What can you say, he scares tanks)
    16. Mitch Allgood (Still developing...could be his year to take the next step)
    17. Ken Edwards (Big wraps on this guy)

    I think this is a potential top 8 side and if they all have a big year could be top 4 with the guys left out of the trial.

    Our 2009 side on paper had a similar look. They weren't superstars.
