    I don't usually post threads, but when I do.... i'm usually half pissed, like now.
    Anyway, quite interesting team to be honest.

    Firstly, can you imagine a team with JT or Slater coming off the bench? Neither can I.
    Secondly, that's a solid defending back row who would get through a lot of work in defending. Though pretty weak on the wings it must be said....all things considered, in this team i'm not sure you'd need flashy creativity on the wings.
    Not sure you can really argue with the stats here either. Pretty much most players in this team are doing the job of their position above and beyond.

    Thoughts?

    Remi Casty is easily better than the forwards in that schimozzle of a side.

    Mansour - most running metres per game.

    Sideways.

    We’ve been f**king garbage for most the decade. Of course we wouldn’t have anyone in it... papalii would be the only consideration

    It’s objectively a f**king shit team

    Doesn't really need to though does it? 50 tackles each, all can play 70 mins. Do their job well, etc...
