    B smith / Reni adds some experience to pack. Also most of our side is young and they are likely to improve as they get more experience .

    Agree with your thoughts - I think one of the positives of our side, is the backline has a lot of natural attacking / scoring ability - this is something you cant really coach into a player. But the other major component of league - defence is definitely something a good coach can fix . I am hopefully rick will fix up our defence big time compared to last year , if this happens anything is possible with a side with Hayne/tonga/sandow/Paulo in it .

    I'm headed out there. Be good to see the boys go round. Hope to see a good step up in defence. That's all I'm interested in really.

    We are due for a big year and there is so much natural talent (albeit young and inexperienced) in this squad. Like I said we may surprise some this year.

    If our defence improves from last year, and we keep our top 17 on the park, we will be certainties for the eight.

    I agree.

    If we can win our last 4 games then we've either avoided the spoon or won the comp. Bring it on

    I think our mediocre attack put our defence under pressure and didn't tire the opposition, so they were fresher to attack.

    That's true too. We never put the defensive line in two minds, making it very easy for the opposition. hopefully with a decent coach, things change.

    Well that sounds positive... Stuart claiming this trial line-up is our strongest minus Hayne, Maitua and Ben Smith, and Roberts nowhere near the starting side. It's possible he can make his best contributions from the bench, and as others have said be hooked if it starts to go pear shaped.

    I forgot about Reni's suspension - is he due back for Round 1? And how long is Ben Smith's injury expected to keep him out for?

    Reni will play round 1 while Ben's injury isnt that serious, we should see him round 1 or at best next week v Penrith

    Cheers Stags, feels good to be starting Round 1 at full strength (if everyone gets through this weekend's trial).
