Yeah not bad. But Napa is shit as a starting prop but because he is on $600k a season I agree they have to find a spot for him in the 17 until his contract runs out. But he is raping us.

Not a huge fan of Wakeham yet, but can live with him on the bench.

Fingers crossed they get Averillo's defensive issues sorted in the off season.
Yep napa cant start

As much as I hate to admit it the predicted round 1 lineup by fox sports I think is going to be pretty close to the mark in terms of what baz will go with. If I had to make a bet my money would be on this team although I’d like to see avo on the bench instead of katoa.

1 Corey Allan
2 Nick Meaney
3 Nick Cotric
4 Will Hopoate
5 Dallin Watene-Zelezniak
6 Brandon Wakeham
7 Kyle Flanagan
8 Dylan Napa
9 Jeremy Marshall-King
10 Jack Hetherington
11 Raymond Faitala-Mariner
12 Josh Jackson
13 Adam Elliott

14 Sione Katoa
15 Renouf To’omaga
16 Joe Stimson
17 Corey Waddell

NRL.com's fixed their predicted round 1 line-up, a lot more respectful.

My changes would be starting Atoni over Napa and I'd drop Wakeham (I don't want to see Katoa anywhere near the side, at least Wakeham has potential) and bring Stimson in, but I couldn't complain at all if this was the starting line-up. I understand why you'd go with these 2 changes if so.

Elliott will most likely be starting lock, small chance in the second row. He's on decent coin so he's not going to be on the bench either (on ability he's a walk in starter anyways). No chance he's out of the side altogether, the club have already expressed their stance on Elliott afaik (slap on the wrist/professional help).

He'll definitely be in the 13 for rd 1, unless his family issues need some time, but we probably would have heard by now if he was taking time off.

0 chance of a 4 forward bench.

that will be pretty close to the mark. Depending on how Averillo is, maybe wakeham is on the bench to cover him.

I think he might be moved to the bench in favour of Waddell who Barrett bought over remember (so obviously is a big fan). Waddell could offer a bit more in attack, is a bit larger and I think this could be a slight punishment for Elliott's recent behaviour also.

If this Lisfranc injury is serious, we'll be down to Katoa and Wakeham in the 9 jumper...
