Love that bench :)
& if you look at the size of the State Cup bench there may be a pattern forming...
Madgic!

He was very good against the Sharks and surprised me with the quality of his work, hit hard in defence and ran the ball hard. He could very well be in for a good season if his attitude is anything to go by so far.

Looks like we have a few troops back on deck for round 2 but I'm really liking the bench with the size and impact we have.

I didn't notice BMM or Buchanan listed in NSW Cup so I assume they're on standby...

bodene will surprise many.

if you doubt him, go watch round 24 vs the dragons and lookout for bodene in defence. I honestly believe we may have come close to losing that game if not for him and braith.

Not really feeling Thompson and Fulton being in the starting line up together. They are very similar players who get their work done but aren't anything overly special. Would have preferred Paterson to start.

Disappointed with BMM as well like many, I think his attitude isn't quite right. It's a real shame because he can be such a great weapon for us but he just hasn't been in the right head space over the last few years. This may be the last year he has to impress, otherwise I'm worried we might lose him.

who loses their spot for sauce when he returns and when does he return?
how do we see the minutes for the forwards?

Ava mate... I can see it being evenly split, woods knee, probably no point pushing him 60+ mins a game if the other forwards are pulling their weight.

sounds good to me
as long as we dont field taupau and gavet at the same time we have a front row worth fearing
our 2nd row is a tad disappointing at the moment, but when sirro returns it could be a damaging pack
austin hopefully bides his time and proves his worth in juniors, and im sure he will get his opportunity in due time

I dont know why so many dont like the Fulton/Thompson starting combo... Im a fan, they can grind us into the game, then once we open the rotation up we have all kinds of angry and damaging runners and hitters with Gavet, Sue and Patterson... Ava isnt a slouch either.

That is exactly how I saw that match also.

Don't like Teddy Blair at lock, don't like Waste Anasta in the 17. Bodene Thompson and Martin Taupau need to play well to cement their spots.
Today we saw a true champion in Winx, and a true bludger in Cleary!

No one questions Fulton heart or commitment to the team he gives 100 percent every game but we always get rolled in the forwards because he lacks size and power as does Boedene and as for Blair well look at the last two seasons enough said his overrated and over paid.

If we want to compete with the better sides we need a better back row , to be honest can only see Fulton coming of the bench once Sironen is back.

you know, for some reason i always see fulton's name and go "meh", but he always plays well. i think i, along with a lot of others, get put off because he isnt that big.

he deserves to be there. he will outplay expectations as always. :)

Patterson should've got the starting spot over Thompson

I know Bodene is small in stature but I think what people seem to forget is that he is one of the strongest players (in terms of muscle strength) in the squad, I think that over the preseason he has began to use that and tighten his defensive technique. His pace and footwork combined make him an extremely damaging backrower if he can take advantage of this skill set.

Only thing to raise an eyebrow is Thompson in ahead of BMM. Seems strange. We'll just have to trust Potter's judgement.
BMM does not deserve to be in the team. I am glad Ava made the squad I watched both trials and he deserves to be there as does Thompson.
I was also impressed with Lulia and Richards.
Looks like Potter has taken his own advice and picked the team on form..... except for Blair.....OK Mick give Blair two games max and that's it we can't afford to carry him.
