Souths coming off a loss tonight will be hard to beat next week. Hopefully Clune is right to go. If not bring on Sailor in the halves with Hunt and bring Blacker in on the bench. Rava and Lomax hopefully will be fit to play.

We badly need some grunt in the forwards. Kerr and Vaughn to start. I purposely didn't mention Norman because he shouldn't be in the team.

Aitken should also be dropped...

The Dragons defence is paper thin. Other teams score at will. When will Ramsey, Tariq Sims and Williame be back? With everyone back my team would be as follows:-
Dufty
Ramsey
Williame
Lomax
Ravalawa
Sailor
Clune
Mc Innes
Frizell
Tariq Sims
Ford
Vaughan
Hunt
Kerr
Bench
Korbin Sims
Merrin
Lawrie

Great team, I love it how you have managed to sneak 14 players in the starting side.
Surprised Mary hasn’t tried this tactic yet :thumbsup::thumbsup:

Souths will be licking their lips in anticipation.
I'm expecting the wheels to completely fall off.
my friend Dane will get a hat trick and Kung Fu Cody will be in full fake tough guy mode while Corey and Benny will just be passive.

He's clearly your whipping boy.
I'd be dropping Hunt.

Not at all...He has been in the Top grade for 5 years....Still clearly makes the same mistakes...playing better at the moment, but that may have a lot to do with his contract being up..

Simple question...would you be happy to re-sign him as a centre ? Consider that we have the Feagai twins and others coming through and whether retaining Aitken blocks their transition into the Top grade. I am sure that @George Dragon could offer more insight into who we have coming through.

In Answer to your question re Hunt, I would be leaving him @ 9....the difference was noticeable to all and sundry when Clune came off...we are rudderless...Would I renew Hunt when his contract is up...NO...we have Sullivan and Wishart coming through and again Norman is more of a Problem I.M.H.O....I'd be giving Sailor a run @ 6 with Clune...or Bite the bullet and promote Sullivan.

On a separate note, Surely Blacker or Kade Ellis deserve a shot.

We all have our favourites. When Hunt has a bad game (which he does regularly) the "Hunt is a brilliant player!!!" crew are quiet and say nothing. Yet when Aitken has a bad game (which he does regularly) he gets destroyed and singled out (aka whipping boy).
I would say that our million dollar mis-firing marquee half-back deserves much more scrutiny than the outside back.
But hey, as I said, we all have favourites.

Corey couldn't give a f**k and Benny is just an emotional mess. He'd likely wave a white flag and put his hand up for a spell.

All good points...so would you re sign Aitken...given that we have the Feagai Twins and others coming through ?

P.S I have never stated that Hunt is a Brilliant player.. .please show me where I made this statement ?

No way I'd re-sign Aitken even if we didn't have Feagai twins/whoever coming through!!!
That wasn't my point.
My point is why is Aitken your/the whipping boy when the dragons lose yet Hunt gets off scott free?
And I'm pretty sure last time we discussed Hunt you left it at something like this "Hunt is a fine player and the QLD selectors and Mal Meninga agree with me, have a nice day"
Or something like that.....
Anyway GETSMARTY, have a nice afternoon.

Thank you for answering the question. He is not My Whipping Boy...Just surplus to requirements...glad you agree... I sense quite a bit of angst in your replies or am I getting this Wrong ?

I have never purposely shown any disrespect towards you .... The use of my name in capitals implies Shouting...hence the reason for asking the question.

Anyway, I will move on...I wish you no ill will and if you have misconstrued anything that I have said, then except my apologies as this was never my intention.

My prime purpose for coming on here is to congregate with fellow supporters of our team and other teams. I am not interested in getting into arguments with anyone on a personal level.

All the best to you @Crush.
