    What I would like to see -

    Mullaney
    Sio
    Morgan
    Tonga
    Blair
    Hayne
    Sandow
    Maitua
    B Smith
    Paulo
    Moi Moi
    Keating
    Mannah

    Lussick
    Kelly
    Allgood
    Ryan

    I dont particularly like Hayne at 6, but having Mullaney at the back makes us a little more threatening. I dont think that first side listed above will worry too many sides.

    I agree. Very similar to last year so lets see if Ricky has got the magic touch. I don't think those teams will worry the leading contenders.

    I believe Bensmith is two words. Could be wrong but.

    Perfect team. You know exactly what you're talking about.

    You don't have a clue, do you?

    Spot on. You're on the money, as always.

    Seriously, you need to learn a little about footy.

    Hayne looked huge in the All Stars game. Would have to be the biggest fullback in the comp. I appreciate it was his first game in 9 months but he still struggles a little in defence and positional play at fullback. He will start at 1 but I would be surprised if he stays there by round 26.

    My guess:

    1.Hayne
    2.Sio
    3.Morgan
    4.Tonga
    5.Blair
    6.Sandow (why not swap the jerseys around and maybe fool the opposition?)
    7.Kelly (see above)
    13.Maitua
    12.Ryan
    11.B.Smith(c)
    10.Mannah
    9.Keating
    8.Allgood

    14.Paulo
    15.Harrison
    16.Moi Moi
    17.Lussick
    18.Roberts (one to be omitted - not sure who)

    Some decent impact off the bench, mixed with some guys that can toil for good minutes in the starting back row, and Loko and Mullaney in reggies ready for the first backline opportunity. Look for the difference in improved motivation and preparation to be evident on field.

    We struggle in terms of size most of the time in the forwards and people are suggesting that Maitua, Smith and Paulo start???

    Harrison for mine is a must or I'd even be happy with Lussick starting in the back row with Smith and Maitua leaving Moimoi at prop. Only issue there is we would struggle for momentum when they go off. Ideally Moimoi would be best used from the bench. Haven't seen anything if Edwards yet to make a call. Tautai and Lasalo should play plenty of football at Wenty.

    The trial side for mine looks pretty good with only Smith, Maitua and Hayne to come into the 17.
