    Surprise selection: Aitken ( ffs )
    Who will shine: Vaughan
    Thin Ice: Dufty
    I just have that horrible feeling that Aitken will get selected at right centre

    I hate to say , but for me its a bullshit comp so I want to be on the bottom of the comp after 6 rounds ..... Surely that will spell the end of the one who thinks he can coach .....

    Surprise selection: Aitken, although not too much of a surprise.
    On ice: Dufty.

    No surprise selections they will all make perfect sense just you wait and see.

    I’m more interested to see who gets to sit with career coach at the presser.

    I think the surprise selection will be Fuimano in the starting 13... either at 13 or in Frizzes spot and Frizz to 13.
    Thin ice? I think it will be lafai.
    Zac will start on the wing, then move into the centres the following week.
    Shine? Williame, Hunt, and Fuimano.
    Kerr will shine off the bench.

    Hopefully surprise selection is Clune, can’t see Normy putting in the hard yards in quarantine. Someone like Lomax would have been working like a champ, I imagine this will shuffle the decks a bit.

    How's are those guys on thin ice?
    Merrin and Luke have only played 2 games and played pretty well and K Sims is coming back from a long run of injuries.
    I like your surprise and shine though, I reckon Saab will be there and Dragons will win.

    I have no idea, but i'll play:

    Surprise selection - Dufty on the bench
    On thin ice - well I heard the bus's motor kicking over the other day (but seriously it has to he Lafai)
    Shine - McGregors bald head in the pressers (but seriously I think our captain will be the light)

    I think Mc85 will go with this:
    1. Lomax
    2. Ravalawa
    3. Lafai
    4. Williame
    5. Periera
    6. Norman
    7. Hunt
    8. Graham
    9. McInnes
    10. Vaughan
    11. T. Sims
    12. Frizell
    13. Fuimaono

    14. Lawrie
    15. K. Sims
    16. Luke
    17. Dufty

    They and the next 5 sides we play will be doing us a favor by beating us and then , surely , surely the Board just can't be seen sitting on their hands and do nothing.

    All I mentioned are on thin ice Crush IMO as they are on the verge of being dropped if they dont perform.
    Positions 1-5 as no one else is on thin ice in McPick & Sticks eyes except the backs as per norm..they are the 1st to go but who is a mystery.
    But Merrin has done nothing thus far...Fuimaino whatever his name is... deserves a start in front of him
    KSims why does he deserve to walk back in for Kerr to be dropped.

    Brittain has more zip than Luke as is 1 or 2 poor games from being dropped like he did at the Warriors.

    It pains me to say it, but for the first time in a lifetime of watching and supporting the Dragons, I don't really care if they win or lose. I can't help feeling that many of the Dragons players are going through the motions with an eye on somewhere else next year. Certainly Frizz is, possibly Vaughan and Graham as well.

    A fraudulent team with a fraudulent coach.
