    I know we've had Covid this season but there seems to be more "off-season" type threads while the comp's been going this year :joy:

    Lomax instead of Dufty? Freddy's amusing, inexplicable love for the bloke seems to be contagious

    this thread makes sense now IMO. The top 8 is settled and we’re waiting around for the finals

    but always good to get your take

    How anyone can pick Staggs in anything except the worst team of the year is beyond me.
    Sure he can run around looking wonderful for 5 mins in a game but he is honestly one of the worst players in the game at the moment, Not only can the guy not tackle his positional play is attrocious

    I reckon you could pick a best 13 of players from teams 4 to 16 and it still wouldn’t beat any of the top 3 sides. Such is the gulf in talent this year between the top 3 and the rest.

    Only time you'll see Tigers players with rep honours.

    Have to agree with you. Staggs defence is so bad, by comparison, he makes Jamie Soward look like the second coming of David Gillespie.

    I seriously thought that Taumalolo and Trbojevic have had relatively quiet years

    You give this Raiders team T.Trbojevic at fullback, Latrell at centre and Grant at hooker and i think they'd win the comp.
    You could do the same exercise with the Rabbitohs and Knights... you'd only need 3-5 players to turn those teams into juggernauts

    But ignoring these fanciful hypotheticals, with the teams being what they are, its nearly impossible for me to conjure a way for a team outside the top 3 to win the comp. They're head and shoulders above the others

    Feldt has been terrible as well in the few games if watched him.
