    It will be interesting how they use Canterbury Cup this year, hopefully they use it to give our really good young players a go and try and build some strong combinations. Players like Wakeham and Averillo who I would rather in first grade should be given reigns of controlling the side. I’m probably more excited watching some of our up and comers coming through than our first grade lineup. I would go full youth with a couple of oldies and stick with this lineup all year.

    1. Nick Meaney
    2. Tui Katoa
    3. Aaron Schoup
    4. Morgan Harper
    5. Frank Kuresa
    6. Jake Averillo
    7. Brandon Wakeham
    8. Devonian Seumanutafa
    9. Ryan Gray
    10. Ofahiki Ogden
    11. Matthew Doorey
    12. Jackson Topine
    13. Javier Pitovaa

    14. Sione Katoa
    15. James Roumanos
    16. Peni Teaupa
    17. Kayne Kalache

    I feel that that is a great side but I know that those Marschke kids will be there. Also, I think Meany, Katoa and maybe Ogden will be in 1st grade.

    Ryan Gray needs to prove himself in Jersey Flegg first.

    Why the Marshke's? I've never really seen them play and haven't heard much about them on TK, so I'd be interested in any views.

    Hope Ogden's having a great off season. I'd rather he gets RFMs bench spot over Smith or Britt - although I don't know much about Britt. He hasn't got many NRL games for his age but his dad got better with age so maybe he's the same? I also reckon Katoa and Meaney are certainties for NRL Rd1 17, and hopefully Wakeham's there too.

    Shit, I can’t believe I forgot Kalache and Topine. I would have both in the side. Ryan Gray is really green and serious doubts about him handling the physicality but hopefully he fills in soon and kicks on. He has more upside than any other Hooker in our club.

    Yeah I know and he actually finished really strongly on the wing but I definitely think his position is fullback. If DWZ doesn’t work out, it would be good to have someone ready to go. I think a spine of Meaney, Averillo, Wakeham & Gray could be something special in the future.

    I thought we let Kalache go? I'm pretty sure one or both of the Marchke's.

    Meaney is first grade ready. He is also a good goal kicker. The debutantes in reserves are not ready. No brainer really.

    I can't see Pay not playing those guys in reggies. Id love to see that team Viking Valley named but there's no chance of it happening.

    I hope you’re right.

    I wouldn’t mind giving Britt benefit of the doubt for a few games and see what he can do. Other than that, nothing

    I would lik to see toomaga in First grade, but I'm concerned it wont happen... unfortunately I feel brit or Smith will get the nod ahead of him.

    I agree, but it wouldn't be the first time weve seen a silly move from pay.

    I cant recall any silly moves made by Pay. However, Toomaga will be in the 17 for sure.

    No chance we see this lineup. I’d expect the guys in our top 30 who don’t make first grade to be playing NSW Cup
