    Nikora looks to have the inside running for an edge spot. Otherwise team looks as expected.

    Interesting and disappointing.

    I heard an interview with Morris before this team was named and he said the run on team named against the Knights would pretty much be the team that starts Round 1.

    Looks like Xerri not in the team.

    I f**king hope so. Besides all the crap we are enduring, the merkin won us a comp and knows how to manage youngsters and bring the best out of them. What more do you want?

    My daughter is at QUT about to start her 2nd year .. She was born in the same month/year as Xerri.. just saying.

    Xerri still big chance round 1, Dugan still 90% chance off getting injured between now and game day round 1

    Not sure what the 2nd paragraph means but xerri deserves a shot over katoa. I think he has shown enough to warrant it. Kotoa on the other hand. Meh

    Guess I will have to be happy with Nikora getting a debut.

    Bet he is happy the kiwi half is here, hit the hole mate.

    I predict a Curtis Scott style release request if Xerri hasn’t played firsts by round 5.

    Anyone who suggests Katoa is a worthy first grader doesn’t know what they are watching. He shouldn’t be near the best 17. Put Xerri in and back him from minute 1. Let him know it’s ok to f**k up.

    Nope.

    Two different personalities.

    One is a f**k wit.

    The other is humble and loyal.

    I like your positivity, I’d love to agree but I think we will take a while to click.
    Once we do though, look out

    For now. His name is in the paper a lot. People change.

    I say play him. If he is good enough he’ll cope. I’m sick of the babying of players.

    I totally agree.

    The sooner he is in the starting line up the better.

    He has that spark that the backline needs after Val and Ramien left last season.
