I'm hoping for this team to start 2018:

1. Lolohea
2. Nofoaluma
3. Milne
4. Suli
5. Fonua
6. Reynolds
7. Brooks
8. Packer
9. McIllwick
10. Matulino
11. McQueen
12. Taylor
13. Eisenhuth

14. Twal
15. Grant
16. Aloiai
17. Marsters

18. Marshall
I think this is the best side possible.

There are still spots up for grabs.

Fonua could be replaced by MWZ or Kev
Grant could be replaced by Sue

I have faith in Cleary and that whoever he picks is the right man for the job!

Bring on 2018
I really like the team as well but just think we also need to find game time for liddle as well as i think he has a great future.

That could mean swapping MM and Liddle or having Liddle on bench in place of Grant.

I know ET could fill in as hooker as well but we need to keep Liddle in the loop

I hear what you're saying about Liddle. Probably a straight swap with MM further into the season would work best, especially if MM's fitness isn't holding up. Taylor will always be there also if Liddle finds himself struggling.

There is no way I would replace a prop on the bench with an extra hooker though. We're too light on in the prop department as it is and we don't have the luxury of Woods playing big minutes anymore, so there will be much more forward rotation happening next season.

I like this selection as well for a couple of reasons:
Milne with more try assists than any player in the RLWC indicates he needs to be a centre not a winger.
MM is a better choice then Liddle at the moment.
Marsters on the bench gives versatility in the backs and forwards
Grant is my only doubt but Sue has to prove he's hungry enough week in week out.
Yeah Milne is very good at setting up his outside man, he's got a few handy trick passes up his sleeve. He's a specialist centre, probably the only one we have.
Indeed! Could be happy times for Nofo if he and Milne can strike up a good combination :mrgreen:

Lawrence and Liddle will be in the 17 come round one if fit. Not saying I agree, but they will be there . Maybe Liddle may struggle after a double shoulder operation, but if fit he will be there

Supercoach, I don't think Lawrence is a shoe-in anymore. Cleary knows he needs to show results moving forward and sentiment isn't part of that. There are better second rowers and those who will play games more consistently (referring to injury). Wasn't Tim Sheens sniffing around recently trying to poach a forward? I reckon this was Lawrence and I also think he knows his days are numbered in first grade in the NRL. I love him, don't get me wrong - but he isn't our way forward anymore. We could rely on his experience previously for the young guys but now we have that in droves with Reynolds, Matulino, McQueen etc.

Last one before 2018........................unless we sign more players.

1. Tuimoala Lolohea
2. David Nofoaluma
3. Esan Marsters
4. Moses Suli
5. Taane Milne
6. Josh Reynolds(c)
7. Luke Brooks
8. Russell Packer
9. Jacob Liddle
10. Ben Matulino
11. Chris McQueen
12. Elijah Taylor(c)
13. Matt Eisenhuth

14. Chris Lawrence
15. Josh Aloiai
16. Alex Twal
17. Jesse Sue But not really. Michael Chee-Kam

Rowdy to sub for Eiso at lock. Aloiai for McQueen. Twal for Matulino. Sue for Packer. And Taylor can go to 9 if Liddle is struggling.
Think you have pretty well nailed it at this stage Tacky, however I would definitely swap Grant for Sue on last years form. The rest look good at the moment without knowing what will happen during the pre-season. Well done.
I'm thinking we need 1 workhorse and 1 impact prop on the bench. I'm not too sold on Sue either but, I want to keep Aloiai in the backrow. I like Twal as a workhorse but, he's not really known for his damaging runs. Sue just needs to play like he did against Manly every week and I think he'll fit right in.

Head knocks may become an even bigger problem with Suaso and particularly so if he cops one early season.

I agree. I’m reading posts saying last years players should get priority for positions. No way. We haven’t brought in a new crop for reserve grade. I admire Lawrence greatly but based on the new acquisitions (and the development late last year) I think he will struggle to secure a spot. I wrote how much I admired Kev’s Passion but I don’t think he will be in our top 17.

I think those that bag Lawrence will be in for a surprise.
If the team is playing better around him, he will look better. If the team isn't, people will be asking why the hell we signed McQueen

What happened to all those people suggesting Nofo would be playing reserve grade in 2018?

Almost every team I've seen has him on the wing.

Noff is our most naturally talented attacking winger. Anyone who thinks he's starting in reserve grade next year needs their head examined.
