Ive loaded up on

BET 1

Dogs win
Manly win (roosters are slow starters, no cordner and manly have Foran and Turbo back)
Souths win

$20/1 through sports bet.

BET 2

Dogs win
Manly win
Souths win
Titans win

$35/1 through sportsbet.

My informer here on the GC tells me C Smith has signed with titans.
If manly were at brookvale maybe...roosters will be fitter without playing world club challenges for the last two years.

Like to see Stimson start in the 17. He was good off the bench for the storm. Last year he was over weight, playing a different role before getting injured. Interested to see how he plays under Barrett.

Reliable source. Katoa is the stronger more elusive ball carrier and that's more valuable to us. Meaney will probably be the reserve grade fullback.
Havent seen much of him besides the trial. Has a good left foot step. Will have to wait and see.
Flanno allen and Cotric to score against knights

Similar style to his brother, just not as explosive.

Can I be a Debbie downer and ask for cotric to play wing?
He’s a brilliant finisher and brings the ball back from kicks strong
He was tried at centre at canberra and failed

I don’t know just don’t see it working

I reckon he has the attributes to make a good centre. Unlike Reimis smith.

Rfm won’t start round one
May jag a bench role but won’t start
Look for the likes of waddel Stimson to fill the void til he’s more fit

Problem is we don't have anyone else to play centre. I'd play him there for the time being but have massive doubts over him performing better there than on the wing.

Waddell somehow find his way into the 13, who could've predicted that :tearsofjoy:
