Potter needs to pick the best 17 available each and every week.

We are a real chance to play semis this year.

If Teddy's form drops then I am happy for him to be dropped.

If we drop out the finals race then look to blood Simona or Rowe at full back.
The real question is whether Teddy will consistently play flat out and as a team man for the rest of the seaon. So many players in his current position lose interest. The pressure will be on him . If he plays well he earns selection. If he loses interest he gets dropped.

Of course, there's probably no one else anyway, unless we give Simona a go at fullback.
How about we just pick the best 17 each week .

If late in the season we aren't a chance of making finals , then I would drop tedesco to give others game time

I believe that they should play Moses this week. Simple reason is he will be full of confidence and riding high from his genuinely impressive display against Wenty. In addition Fulton is out and hence there is a good chance Siro will start.

This will give him a ready made combo with Siro and Brooks from which to succeed.

If they are going to play him in firsts this year then this week is perfect.

I would have Austin on the bench as a utility.

I think that Moses is a first-grader through and through. The sole reason he's not already in the side in my opinion is his size. If he partners Brooks in the halves, the opposition will just run their forwards at the two of them all day.

He is twice the player Anasta is at the moment, in my opinion. In attack, anyway.

I think this notion that Moses is too small for first grade is BS... The boys in under 20's aren't exactly little these days... NSW cup is full of first graders every day of the week and he carved them up already... Bring the kid up already, he is no smaller than bro okay and he is loving the challenge... Drop anasta and bring in Moses now, some of the best tradesmen are thrown in at the deep end...

Front row for Teddy in the lowest grade he can possibly play. Directions to run it up for the first 5 tackles. If he doesn't do it he doesn't get paid.

If we drop out the finals race then look to blood Simona or Rowe at full back.

Screw Tedesco, he's told the Tigers he doesn't want to play for them in 2015 and beyond, so why should we want him in 2014?

Yep thats how I feel. He can go now. I will feel zero enjoyment supporting a team with him in it.

First time I have felt this way in 30 years of watching league.

Lawrence and Anasta are now past 1st grade standard for what ever reason. They were both good players and nobody can take that away from them but we have to pick the best 17 players and they are not in the mix.

Maybe you might give Lawrence a couple of weeks playing outside a no6 that might put a ball on that actually gives him some daylight, but what I have seen their are a couple of outside backs in reserve grade screaming out for a shot.

I have been Potters no1 supporter, but he needs to make some very hard calls because if walks away from these calls, Mayer and the board will judge him on the teams results and that will mean curtains, because the results will not happen with the current set up

I agree Lawrence and Anasta should go. Adding nothing to current side.

Nofo to centre and Koro to wing (try scoring machine)

Austin or Moses to five eight.

Need 4 big bloppers on the bench

Sirro to start with Thompson in the second row.

Re fullback selection:
I don't agree with the twisted knickers view about Tedesco being not selected. He's a kid and has to live with his decision, good or bad.
I also don't agree that selecting him (because we have to select our best) is wise. I don't necessarily agree he is now our best. He has moved on. He will not be wanting to put his body on the line for his (now-ex) team.
I believe we need to be building the team for the future and making positional selections on that basis. Rowe or another. I don't write Rowe off under Potter's tutelage.
Hopefully, Potter can see the above and I will trust in his selection. If he needs to pick Tedesco while sorting out his replacement I won't be outraged, but I hope he starts the chosen replacement well before the end of the season.

For the same reason Iam calling for Anasta and Lawrence to be replaced,is why I think Tedesco must be selected. We must pick our best 17 and give the team the best chance of winning. A winning team generates interest and that generates money in the clubs bank account
