    I wouldn’t mind 4 forwards on the bench. Ensures Tolman doesn’t play ridiculous minutes and our intensity is consistent over the 80. A genuine utility on the bench is only worth it if they can make a difference

    Halligan, El-Masri - not the best wingers in the world but the best goal kickers ever. Just saying, this has to come into consideration

    Holland is a great goal kicker also. Admittedly not as good as martin. But we are not in a position to carry someone just for goal kicking. We need to pick the best players we have in each position then choose a goal kicker after that. As I said CHN and RFM in my opinion are way better than martin.

    I agree, they are, but you just have to find room for Martin, don’t you? Maybe centres? Do not underestimate the confidence the team gets knowing they can score tries anywhere on the field with a guarantee 6 points

    Well u will be carrying holland for goal kicking cause anyone that sees talent in that bloke needs to give me some of what there taking. Rfm did nothing to prove he is an 80 minute footballer unlike martin. Raymond will definitely have to pull his socks up if he wants long minutes.

    Martin defends well, and can run a decent line and is a big body on the fringes. I would rotate CHN and RFM so we don't lose anything when one comes off and the other comes on.

    Martin will be in the 17. Mostly likely starting, because of his kicking. Holland will take over the duties when he’s subbed.

    11. CHN
    12. Martin
    13. Jackson

    14. Elliott
    15. RFM
    16. Sue
    17. Fualalo (although I’d personally prefer Ogden - but I think Pay will choose Fualalo based upon his consistent selection this season)

    We have a very good pack next season. Very capable bench and equally as capable depth in ISP.

    We all seem to have forgotten that form should be and hopefully will be the main factor in team selection,
    We are lacking quality in several positions and have bought players potentially to fill those positions, trials should determine who starts in first grade and who drops to reserves bearing in mind we might still add a quality player or two to the squad .

    I never said Holland is any good. I just said his a great goal kicker. Ive got Holland in the team because we have absolutely noone else to put in the centres. We have no depth in the centre position we have no choice but to put Holland there unless we buy someone. While the edge backrow position we have alot of depth.

    Besides if you really think Martin starts ahead of CHN,RFM or Jackson then tell me why he played in the nsw cup finals while r.smith and lewis didnt?

    I'll tell you why he played, he played because he's been the captain of the team for 2 years now and he deserves to get a win.

    I like Ogden. Get him a bit more fit and he will be a gun.

    FFS, he’s a professional athlete, I’d be more pissed if he’s not running around.
