Agree. The only way to beef up the forward pack is to give some of the up and comers a go:

8. Galloway
9. Farah
10. Woods
11. Pettybourne
12. BMM
13. Anasta

14. Blair
15. Seumanufagai
16. Groat
17. Naiyaravaro

Plenty of size with that bench (and there are a couple of other options not named) but bugger all experience aside from Blair. That's the problem Potter faces with bench selections, experience-wise we lack big time once a starting forward pack has been named.

I think it shapes to be a year where a few young guys get a go off the bench, provided Potter wants to see improved go forward.
No Fulton? He will be there somewhere

My post was directed purely at size among the forwards, which is why I didn't mention Fulton.

Don't think we will see much of Groat this year.

Full toe reconstruction.

would love to see seumanfagai and naiyaravaro, given a go to see if they can stand up to the NRL. With there size it would great to have them in the top 17.

Do you mean light as in KILOS or light as in not that many props?

Tigers may not have the biggest pack but I dont think thats an issue. Canberra have a a pretty big pack, So do the Warriors. That got them nowhere.

It comes down to skill level.

size is not everything , agresive hard hitting players are more dangerous , gavet type players , no fear

There won't be too many surprises for round 1, they'll get their chance throughout the year.

1. Moltzen
2. Koroibete
3. Ayshford
4. Lawrence
5. Tuquiri
6. Marshall
7. Miller
8. Woods
9. Farah
10. Galloway
11. Blair
12. Fulton
13. Anasta

14. Murdoch masila
13. Pettybourne
14. Thompson
15. Gavet

Moltzen is a real strike weapon and just needs to improve under the highball and attack the footy. Outside of this (and definitely needs BIG improvement) he is a quality fullback

Tuquiri has some strength in this area too, which is why I've got him over Utai

I think Gavet will get first crack in the front row rotation and will be big for us this year.

Fulton will fill the utility role and Anasta can cover the halves. This gives us a big, strong, aggressive and mobile bench which could really unsettle some quality sides

Correct Moltzen needs to improve under the high ball and attack the footy and back up and set up plays and do all the other things a normal fullback does but besides that his Great.

Tuquiri No not over Utai and Gavet is injured so more thinking required there.

Okay, first post of the year for me, this team has probably already been thrown up but here goes anyway!

1. Ted (if fit, otherwise Moltz)
2. Koro
3. Aysh
4. Lawr
5. Utai
6. Benj
7. Miller
8. Woods
9. Farah
10. Keithy
11. Blair
12. Fulton
13. Anasta

14. BMM
15. Bell
16. Pettybourne
18. Sironen (if a back got injured mid game, he could play centre just to get us through the game, i think hes fast enough etc)

19. Simona

(Gavet to replace Bell possibly once fit?)
(Tedesco is our future fullback, once fit, get him in and bring him upto speed even if it means struggling for a few weeks)
