I think Chee Kam will play and Buchanan will be 18th.

Hope they do the business, but it kinda shows how far behind we are if Lovett and Buchanan are still getting FG gigs.

14 and 17 are exhibits A and B to be used against the people who think we've recruited well because we've "added depth".

So is Cherrington really going to play 80? This selection makes no sense to me at all.

with Lovett putting on the extra Kegs this year, it quite a big bench..no matter who's the 18th man.
Good to see Aloiai there. Really it's going to be of balance between Chee Kam and Buchanan. do you go for versatility or the extra Prop?

Jack the plodder in front of MCK, its like leaving the v8 in the garage and driving your daughters four cylinder car.

Other than that it is the best available I suppose

It's a good team. I'm surprised that Taylor isn't giving Cherrington a backup and that he seems have chosen a big bench assuming Buchanan plays ahead of MCK. I'm not stating it's the wrong choice either.

I reckon we have a good chance.

I am reasonably happy with the team. UNTIL I saw then bench. Lovett and Buchanan come on they showed last year they struggled big time in first grade. I would rather chee kam and griffin get a run. Both Lovett and Buchanan must have compromising photos of JT.

Good squad given the folk we have missing. Lovett went OK in the sharks trial & hit the line pretty hard. Prefer versatility of MCK over Buchanan.

Good luck boys!

I know there was talk out of the WTs that Cherrington is an 80min player.. However, If he does tire who goes into Dummy Half?
Rankin Or Littlejohn
It would require a lot of shuffling , with no 2nd DH on the bench. But u could go Cherrington subbed. Little-john to DH (as he is probably a slightly better defender than Rankin) and Rankin to half. Lawerence to wing/centre and Aloiai on in 2nd row.
This is assuming Chee Kam is 18th man as per the team listings.

Ditto, provides much better utility value.

Maybe Buchanan is on the bench over MCK because he wants Sue playing 80 at lock with a 4 prop rotation. I still don't like it.

I'd also have preferred MCK over Lovett for utility purposes.
