Don't see the point in having Austin as 18th man, either pick him in first grade or let him play state cup. It benefits no one to have him sitting out for a week.
He who is not everyday conquering some fear has not learnt the secret of life.

Austin may take over as hooker when Luaini needs a break.

He won't be sitting out. If he isn't in firsts he'll be in state cup.

I really hope so,Anasta can't get a start every week regardless of form,and I would hope Potter selects like that.

No Fulton would do this....Austin is only there incase the named team has an issue later in the week...plus I;m sure its Potter's way of keeping Austin keen and Braith on alert

Really like Potter picking like for like and not upsetting team balance.

I think he picked Austin to show him that even if hr gets dropped by weekend he is highly regarded. What a debut last week really seemed to compliment Brooks.

Really getting excited about our chances this yeat.

Shame about the off field

Good on Mick for selecting Blake in this squad... While I believe Anasta is a must until later in the year, Blake should feel proud he is apart of this group rather than being discarded back to Reggies straight away.

When he is released, I hope he uses his time in NSW Cup to keep his energy high and push for selection.

This group of boys are gona make a statement to the NRL over the next 3 months!!!

I just watched there team announcement on the WT site and have to admit that I still got excited by what I saw. Ok Farah is out so experience and guile will be lacking, but the team still looks balanced. Give Luaini his go. Rowe let rip. We've got great juniors and I (deleted) the Eels. Go Tigers.

Would have to be the youngest and most inexperienced spine ever in the NRL (not including the 5/8 of course).
The older guys will definitely need to be helping them the whole game.

The team list on the website says Fulton is captain but in the text underneath it says Anasta.

I would be tempted to run with Austin and Anasta over Brooks this round. Not because Brooks deserves to be dropped but mostly because Brooks might struggle without Farah to feed him when appropriate on top of no Tedesco to aim at. Austin, Rowe and Luani have a few game together and Austin will have more experience running basic plays and his history of being in and out of the top grade gives him the experience of having played with a wide variety of different styles and structures whereas Brooks has dropped off a bit without Tedesco in the side much less without Farah.

A bit of horses for courses.
