Will wait until after next week's trial to name a team, but on last night and in the presumed early season absence of Liddle, I would much rather have Godinet in the nine than MM in the meantime
I am not sure that Godinet can cope with the defensive workload in the middle of the field over big minutes.
Neither am I, but whilst MM can put on a hit, he falls down in other areas for mine, including defensively from marker and particularly so after decent minutes. He also just doesn't do the little things in attack that help take the defensive focus off pummelling his runners. They are both players that have been around for a while without cementing an NRL spot, with MM likely only getting the majority of his games last season because of Liddle's absence.

Godinet does not have the sit you on your arse tackle in his arsenal, but works hard and is no walkover, whilst adding a lot more spark than his current competitors for the spot

I agree on Godinet until Liddle is ready. He was a real good late pick up.

MM is too one dimensional and slow - good defender but after that the box is empty.

Anyone leaving Aloiai out of the side is doing a huge injustice to the team. He is our best forward. Beast.
I'd have him starting on the right edge for sure.

Don't mind your team except for MWZ at 5, I doubt he'll make Cleary's team we have potentially 4 first grade wingers, he'll play that beast who got sent off..it took 4 cowgirls to pull him down when he ran the ball and he plays the ball quicker than a heart beat..a very,very important attribute to have for a winger, I can see him and Nofo bringing the ball back on play and making plenty of metres.
Fonua, Nofo and Tui will get us off to a good start to our sets regularly. Fonua looked really hard to tackle and he has a quick play the ball.

I'm not sure where to play Aloiai but he has to be one of the first forwards picked.

We have a lot of depth this year it’s clear to see when Cowboys has Scott and Thurston off we were a class above. Our second unit is very good and I wouldn’t be surprised if we win NSW Cup.

My lineup is 1. Tui 2. MWZ 3. Marsters 4. Milne 5. Nofa 6. Reynolds 7. Brooks 8. Packer 9. Liddle 10. Matulino 11. Lawrence 12. ET 13. Eiso 14. Twal 15. Aloai 16. McQueen 17. Sue 18. Marshall
Can't see Lawrence keeping McQueen out of the starting side.
Thought he matched up well against Ethan Lowe last night and he is a player that I would like at WT.
Yep agree Lawrence is the definition of a great club man but surely McQueen pips him for skill at this stage of their careers
McQueen is the better player but coming back from injury I think he is probably eased back in from the bench. He is more versatile and covers plenty of positions.

I know this is a bit left field but I like the looks of this team
1. Tui
2.Nofo
3.Masters.
4.Miline.
5.Thompson (If he can handle left wing) or MWZ
6.Reynolds.
7,Gamble
8. Packer
9.Brooks (UNTIL Liddle is ready)
10. Matalino
11.Eisenhuth
12 Mc Queen
13. Taylor.

14. Twal
15. Aloai
16. Felise or sue or Grant
17. Marshall or Fonua
Fonua's fitness won't last 40min so an impact bench player only at best

Imagine a team with
Tui Reynolds Brooks Gamble and Marshall
I think there would be a lot of play options and keep the opposition guessing all game
