    Okunbor worries me with his defensive reads (or lack of) and his catching ability under the high ball... I think I would prefer to give young Averillo a go.

    You can't start with a pack that has Jackson Elliott and Tolman all in the starting pack. It's no wonder we get monstered every week.

    in order for us to win this, we are going to have to bash them into submission and put them off their game..

    The eels have far too many points in them when they are on song.. being r1 theres a better chance they wont be on song.

    I think I'd rather Katoa as bench utility over Holland.
    I like Ogden but he looked a little unfit in the trials. I hope I am wrong.

    Please please we need to pressure and monster Moses,Gutho and either Fergo or Sivo to stand a chance.
    Pay should put some of his forwards on notice and get them to really rip in and win that front battle.

    Cant wait! Dogs 28 Eels 10

    Averillo looks promising talent. But wonder whether his kick returns will be strong enough?
    Look at Parramattas two wingers and their kick return ability. Geez. I can't wait for this game.

    Parramatta's lineup looks good on paper, but I love the way we're playing as a team with our young and inexperienced players.

    If we turn up ready to play this season, in similar fashion to the end of last season then I'm tipping the doggies.

    I think we need to start some big boppers try win the opening exchange, along with that letting Averillo float around the ruck would be helpful

    I hope Ogden plays.
    Does anyone know if JMK is fit to play?
