Let me be an argumentative jerk and say ...

I would take all of these players over Lovett and Buchanan with the exception of J Wright and A Elliott but only the latter because he hasn't played first grade yet so how could you criticise the kid, he might be awesome?

Elliott is a St Gregs kid too and was captain of Wests Harold Matts and SG Ball I think?

You can't really add the most highly regarded young prop in the game in Ofahengaue with those others. Far from a plodder, but yes still young and cementing his spot in a highly competitive Broncos pack.

Half of those players would walk onto our bench, the other half i've never even heard of.

There is little argument that this is probably the best 18 man squad we can field this week. Sure Lovett and Buchanan aren't my first choice, however lets face it we don't have better FG options at this point in time. I have not been a big fan of either of them, but I too noticed some intent and hunger in Lovett during the trials - so I am hoping he is lifting his game. As for Jack, I would think that when Edwards comes good he will come in to the side at 13 and Sue will be the 4th prop. MCK looks a good option on the bench but Halatau probably needs a spot to cover dummy half. Maybe Lovett's bench spot could be the one.

My bigger concern for this opener is that Brooks has looked good and really lifted the team in attack when he has come on during the trial period. Whether JLJ can fill that void remains to be seen. Rankin has a tough intro as well. No interchange for Cherrington could hurt us badly as I'm not sure he can handle the Warriors big forwards for 80.

All in all - I think we are going to struggle but as long as the effort is there you never know. The Warriors can be anything on any given day so let's hope it's not one of their magical days!!

Elliott is a St Gregs kid too and was captain of Wests Harold Matts and SG Ball I think?
captain of aus schoolboys and played u20s origin with moses and lodge, played nsw cup origin last year too at just 20.

but agree with ink, all teams have plodders. bolton, baptiste, elliott, marketo and prior not really plodders though. the above listed players are more like our seumanufagai, cherrington, sironen, lawrence etc. unproven and haven't even had a break out game yet.
My Round 1 Team 2018

1. lolo 2. noffa 3. suli 4. milne 5. fonua
6. reynolds 7. brooks
8. packer 9. ET 10. Twal
11. McQuen 12. Lawrence 13. Eiso
14. Matulino 15. McIllwrick 16. Sue 17. Aloiai
18. Marsters 19. Benji 20. Grant 21. K Naiqama

A ball hasn't been kicked in anger yet...Lovett was good in the trials and Buchanan at least has 1st Grade experience..we won't win or loose because they are in the team...it's a team game..we'll loose if we can't control the football and miss a zillion tackles...
Roy and HG invented just such a scale many moons ago - rating how many 'Hardwicks' each player was equivalent to. Do I recall some players being equal to 6 or 7 Hardwicks?? Not sure but it was all quite funny.
