1. Meaney
2. DWZ
3. Cotric
4. Hopoate
5. T. Katoa
6. Averillo
7. Flanagan
8. Hetherington
9. JMK
10. Atoni
11. Jackson
12. RFM
13. Elliott

14. Waddell
15. Ogden
16. Napa
17. Stimson

Jackson and Elliott can swap positions if Barrett thinks that's the best thing for the team. I think Elliott's ball playing ability is very valuable tho.
I don't know anything about Harding, if he's better than T. Katoa then throw him in instead.
Averillo's preferred/best position is five-eighth and we need a runner next to Flanagan.
I still think we need at least 1 of Burton (gets Averillo to fullback) or JAC (we're light at wing) for 2021 as well as another quality signing, preferably at hooker.

Not sure why so many people keep naming Hetherington on the bench...he's a lock in the 13 under Baz.
Because he's a good impact player. Good acceleration and runs hard. Will be hard to tackle around tired defenders.

Without Burton and not gaining / signing anyone else along with Thompson out this would be my R1 side.

1. Averillo
2. Meaney (people don't like him but genuine speed outside Cotric is appealing imo)
3. Cotric
4. Hopoate
5. DWZ / Schoupp
6. Biondi-Odo
7. Flanagan
8. Hetherington
9. JMK
10. Mariner (has to play middle why Thompson is out, fuck having Napa and Ogden in the same side, too lazy and risky to have them on at same time imo)
11. Elliot
12. Waddell
13. Jackson

14. Topine
15. Doorey
16. Atoni
17. Napa

Like Napa was a good "impact player". It's a load of shit. You're better forwards start, end of. Baz didn't bring him over to start games on the bench.
Hetherington will most likely start in 22. Hate on Napa but he will most likely start. He's a good player just down on form like most of our squad. Doubt he will be re signed though so that's when hethro takes over

Napa isnt down of form, he's just bog average. Hetherington is ahead of him, I know this for a fact.

I dont think so but he's got every chance to impress. Flanagan an organiser, having a ad lib running 6 would be exciting and better than anything Lewis or Wakeham could provide with Kyle
That's true. Will have to see if he is elevated.
