No BMM is a mistake. Thompson being there is a mistake

Really don't understand Thompson over Lawrence in the centres. Would've also taken Fulton instead of Cherrington to cover back-row/lock/hooker.

But of all the selections I really would have liked to see Big T and BMM there somewhere, they could've been devastating in this format. Fitness may have been their biggest downfall though.

Think Lawrence maybe a preservation thing...

He's been injury ridden, his focus should be round 1, getting on the field.

I think it is a good squad we are taking a real good mixture of youth and experience .
It just depends what mind set Potter is in , Is he taking it a bit serious but also looking to give the younger guys more of a run?
It depends who you talk to on this Forum, if you are Optimistic? it's because your delusional and need a reality check. If you are Pessimistic? Your accused of being a negative Nancy and to go and follow another Club.

im going to withold judgement about bodene. i think he could be a surprise package for us this year.

Fulton is injured.

BMM and Big T have really faded away, seems like they are disinterested, lazy etc. from all reports. But they definitely could have a big impact in 9s

About as good a squad that could of been picked

Maybe Thompson may have been thought to have been stronger and been able to create more space for outside players dragging multiple defenders in

Its a new concept , we will wait and see what does and doesn't works

Hopefully Potter is on the money , because the money would be fantastic for the Tigers coffers and possibly help attract talent for 2015

T played in the centres in Alice Springs for large chunks of the game.

This preseason is about getting as many highly involved minutes in he and Benny's legs as possible it seems. Have therm primed to fire out of the gate

Sorry Happy, I have heard no news on Fulton and Sue's injuries. I know Moltzen is ahead of schedule but still ages away, Simona is progressing well but look for him in round 4 or 5. Brooks will start contact work in the next week or so.

A few things I noticed in the squad named on the official WT site:

Austin is recorded as tipping the scales at 97kg;
Blair has bulked up and is listed as 111kg;
Woods has bulked up and is listed as 114kg;
Gavet is listed as 108kg;
Thompson is listed as 107kg;
Sirro at 104kg (Although I believe he is closer to 107kg); and
Taupau listed as 112kg.

Throw is Sue at 107kg, BMM, Buchanan, Galloway and Ava S and we've definitely got the makings of a more solid forward pack this year which hopefully translates into a tougher ruck and more go forward for us.

There's a few players such as Koro, Moses, Nofo, Teddy and Paterson who I think will really enjoy this tournament.

Like that Potter is giving younger players some game time during the off season.

Great looking team!

What position does Delouise Hoeter play?
