Sironen, Grant heavily on notice from Liolevave, Felise, McConachie. Lovett only plays as a cut price version of Chris Lawrence in case on injury. Moses also has to fire or Littlejohn and Rankin can have a crack at his spot.
personally, unlike most of the forum i rate lovett. think he has a strong workrate for a young player.

so id swap chee kam with lovett. we need more defensive bulk on the team anyway. besides that it looks perfect

Moses.

Edwards can start in NSW cup since he needs match fitness. If he is good enough then he will get a go at some point. He isn't owed a walk up first grade spot. He was a fringe first grader at two other nuffie clubs.

I think Chee Kam is perfect for right centre. He can defend, has good size and deceptive speed.
Looks like Josh Aloai could be a very good young player and has some decent size and power about him. I'd have him on the bench for some impact coming on with Ava.

Given injuries and recent form I think our best lineup is:

1. Tedesco
2. Nofoaluma
3. Simona
4. Chee-Kam
5. Naiqama
6. Moses
7. Brooks
8. Woods
9. Farah
10. Grant
11. Sironen
12. Lawrence
13. Sue

14. Ava
15. Aloai
16. Cherrington
17. Dallas Graham

Who ever was responsible for recruitment,they have done a good job with so many good forward options showing up. I think Chee kam is a must for centre. Let Aldo Carr spend some time in state cup learning how to defend as well. The forwards selections will be a happy problem for Taylor,

I like Lovett also, but Cheeky can cover centre and Lovett can't.

fair point but we've already got lawrence there. not a fan of carrying excessive utilities or players just cuz they can play other positions too much

wonder how ballins going to fit in anyway. he'll be such a boon for the side during origin. i think it'll be an extra 1-2 wins more than we normally get in the season.

I'm not sold on Lovett but I don't think he is that bad and he may even become a solid first grade player. I think he has to be played in the backrow though because he doesn't have the pace in the centres.

I'm wondering how he fits in as well but I think its left right out. I reckon Cherrington has to be first picked as a back-up to Robbie or off the bench.

Still I hope you are right.

Farah averages about 17 games a year, and I don't think Cherro is up to 80 minutes, so I'm sure Ballin will get used.

Honestly, while I want to see plenty of Cherrington, it will probably be good for his development to sometimes pull 80 in NSW Cup rather than 30 in first grade

I am gonna lay it down. We shouldn't put our eggs in Cherrington basket. Liddle looked the better player last night.

I have liked Liddle in every of the games that I've watched, solid as and dont think he has a bad game in him.

definitely a good purchase. but im thinking more about the first 10 rounds assuming farahs healthy.

cherrington in reserve grade with ballin off the bench? seems to be a waste of a spot since farah can still play 80min i reckon. but a 50/30 split could work very well with the new rules/interchanges you never know. however, if the new rules were to help out a 2 hooker system it would be with farah and cherrington as they complement each other a lot more than ballin/farah.

oh definitely not on the centres. if anyones rating him on how hes performed at centre theyre crazy :crazy

hes a 2nd rower, and i think he can develop into a very good workhorse for us. kind of like fults but he has a long way to go before he gets there.

We have depth this year for the second row/lock positions and if Lawrence, Sirro, Sue are not performing then we have the Ipswich boys, Lovett, Edwards, Chee Kam and Loivevave.

Dallas Graham and JJ Felise also add some prop depth and pressure this year.

I feel Rankin/Hunt will fight it out for a wing spot and goal kicking duties.

Addo-Carr to develop his tackling technique in State Cup until he is ready for a shot at NRL.

Noffo and Simona being injury free this year will provide a lot of attacking options this year.

That looks a pretty good side. We are going to have to score heaps of tries in 2016. Because we are going to,have one of the lowest goalkicking percentages.

Bracketed players ready replacements for injury/underperformance
1. Tedesco
2. Nofoaluma
3. Simona
4. Naiquama
5. Rankin (Addo-Carr/Karwhin)
6. Moses
7. Brooks (Littlejon for either half)
8. Woods
9. Farah (Cherrington)
10. Grant
11. Sironen (Aloiai)
12. Lawrence
13. Sue

14. Seumanufagai
15. Aloiai
16. Halatau/Chee Kam
17. Edwards

Can't find room for Cherrington on the bench due to lack of utility value and the fact that he would get limited minutes, but he would be promoted to starter if Farah continues with some of those kicks he put in tonight.
