all teams have these players....
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.
Scott Bolton would be a starting prop at this club and would probably start at a number of others on form (Raiders, Panthers, Sharks, Souths, Titans, Knights, Dragons and Storm). He's overshadowed by the starting props at the Cowboys but he was bloody good last year.

He certainly can play the whole 80. But he won't be able to deliver quality footy, for the whole 80.
Anyway, good luck to the boys.

Actually I'll be in Fiji for this so just looking forward to it full stop!

The off-season has been too long. Up the Tigers!!!

Hey Raven,I'm going to Fiji in June,the Naviti on the coral coast,can you let me know if they show the NRL over there please....cheers mate....

Go the Tigers...hoping for very few injuries this year so we don't have to swap and change players into different positions every week....
You won't have a problem watching NRL in Fiji...they are footy mad over there. Near every bar I went to had the whole weeks games being played over and over again. I took 10 footballs over with me for the local kids (and a couple of cheap pumps) talking footy is a great way to engage with the locals. They took me to local games and invited me to play touch footy every arvo with them..just before beer time.
That's nice Tigerdon. A few years ago we went there for a holiday. My son and BH brought with them half a suitcase full of old ( but in good condition) footy shorts, footy boots and socks, flags, WT hats and a couple of old jerseys to give away to the locals. They were so grateful and happy to receive the gifts. Needless to say we made some friends instantly. Lovely people. :P

I was willing to give Taylor the benefit this season for last year's aberration as it was really only his first year, but selecting Buchanan is alone enough reason to seriously doubt him. It shows he has learnt nothing and will therefore continue making the same mistakes, running this team into the ground with no thought for present success or future progress.

Buchanan is not that bad he just has not done anything amazing.

Looking at our 18 man squad either he or Lovett will miss out

I'm guessing it will be Buchanan because no matter what people are saying Cherrington won't get the 80 minutes and I'm also guessing that Lovett will play middle of the ruck in defence and someone will slot into the make shift hooker role

We may even get a late change and both drop off the bench

Picking Buchanan if we are going to make a late change isn't a bad idea as the Warriors can't really see how we will attack this game with a particular game plan

Actually, he is that bad. He has no penetration as a big forward. He doesn't pass. He goes to ground easily. He is predictable. He concedes silly penalties way too often and is generally a liability.
I would rather us play with one man less on the bench than him there.

Lovett is more reliable.

Saw a scoop today stating Lawrence will play 5/8 with Little John at 9 for the start of the game until Cherrington comes on.

Sheens is back???

pretty much sums him up. im sure he's a great guy who trains the house down, but at the end of the day what he has produced in first grade has been way below acceptable for a number of years now. i fail to believe guys like Dallas Graham, Jordan Grant or Rod Griffin would be any worse, at least give them a go to see what theyev got. Buchanan has now played first grade for 4 seasons, he wont get any better.
