We have 1 very experienced fit out of form hooker ( Farah ), 1 makeshift hooker who doesn't offer a lot anymore (Halatau) and 2 inexperienced youngsters who really aren't up to !st grade standard ( Cherrington and Liddle)
Who do you pick? It really is a no brainer isn't it?

A very predictable team. Everyone is giving their opinion so I may as well give mine. I think Chee Kam should start for Naiqama. I like Kev but he's proven to be a defensive liability for too long. I also think Nofo should be demoted but we don't have a ready made replacement who's going to be any better. Same goes for JAC, who some might argue should be left out of first grade for the rest of the season. Again, no replacements except for, maybe Peni ,and I don't think Josh's departure is all his doing.....Keep a match winner there.I would swap Sue for Alouai because of his aggression and line bending ability and I'd also drop Grant in favor of Felise. This might sound crazy but has anyone thought of trying Teddy in the centres? He's a champion fullback but.....he can tackle, has footwork and a fend. I thought Rankin went all right at the back and he has ball skills that could be utilised.....Ok, howl me down, ha ha!

Very predictable team. No way Naiqama should be there. MCK should be starting Center with Naiqama in reserves. Felise should defo be on the team, at least on the bench. I actually don't mind Dene's selection, at least he's versatile and can play a number of positions if Farah or one of the other forwards go down injured.
Let's hope this is just a draft team list JT sent out to make the deadline for team announcements and a few changes are on the way. Wonder what ONeill thinks of this team list

Aside from Littlejohn potentially giving the recently re-signed Brooks a spell, it doesn't seem like anyone in reggies has killed it in their previous two losses or over the course of the season. Chee-Kam and JAC have been given call ups.

Some pretty rational ideas actually. Tedesco has a bit of the Dugan about him and would go fine in the centres but he's an amazing fullback.

Let's see how Kev goes with JAC next to him and Nofo w Simona.

We will get 20 minutes of sheer brilliance and 20 minutes of inept incompetence and 40 minutes of anywhere in between

Whether that 20 minutes of brilliance outdoes the 20 minutes of incompetence is yet to be seen

We leak points through our right edge week after week and nothing has been done to address it In regards to team selection. Besides JAC getting promoted and Sironen getting dropped a couple of weeks ago tell me what has changed in regards to under performers not being held accountable.

So MCK as 18th man, do we know if someone is under an injury cloud or can we expect the possibility of Naiqama being replaced.

Given recent run with injuries during warm ups the 18th man is a big show of getting a run :lol:

Some Forum member's comments make me laugh.

Based on their comments JAC, Halatua and Farah should not play for the NRL side again this year due to them signing elsewhere, retiring or moving on.

You have to pick your best 17 available and forget 2017.

Given how weak our right hand defence is, maybe MCK should trip Naiqama over during the warm up and then be elevated to starting centre. (lol).

Naiqama and Noffo have to be on the game plan of every opposition coach. Free tries available by running down the right side.

No wonder why we do not win many games with underperformers constantly rewarded with NRL spots.

Love to give Chance Peni a try in the top grade and let the other two learn how to tackle in State Cup indefinitely.

Why not just try Rankin at centre?
