Totally agree.Fitzy is just a waste on the bench he has no real utility value being equally inept in all positions.Another forward should be there.

1. Tim Molzten (OK fullback - brilliant halfback. Will be good when he chimes into the backline or up the middle of the ruck at full pace. Has great talent but needs to be involved in every set of six and has to run off Benji's shoulder)
2. Lote Tuqiri (Wont know what has hit him out there with the pace of the game. You have to admire him for his guts coming straight back into the big time and the spotlight. Is a proud person who will give it his all)
3. Blake Ayshford (Pure talent. A typical 1980's style player in the Chris Mortimer mould. The offseason is what the Fonz was salivating for Blake to endure. Now that has happened I predict him to have a massive season. Needs to pass the ball more.)
4. Chris Lawrence (Needs to stay wide and run straight lines. Get those hands working. The Fonz has taught him to run sideways and dummy inside to runners which looks ridiculously silly when Chris does that. Just needs to run into holes at a zillion miles an hour and if he does that they will need the fire brigade on standby to extinguish the flames from the grass. Needs a big game to get back on track)
5. Beau Ryan (Mind on game. Concentrate. Get those hands working. Set that radar on the corner post. Needs to back himself and play with confidence because when he does he can match all wingers in every facet of the game)
6. Benji Marshall (Is God. Needs to focus and relax. Communicate with his team mates. Concentrate on his kicks. Be 2nd or 3rd receiver out wide. )
7. Robert Lui (Needs to give himself time to do things. Dont be rushed. Has greater skills than Foran but Foran has more time to do things and much more relaxed. Should be a great contest between these Schoolboy Champions)
8. Bryce Gibbs (Will be up to the task and what a massive task it is. He needs to hit very hard to match it with the great manly pack. He is hurting after being robbed of games last year after a ridiculous suspension.)
9. Robbie Farah (In my opinion the best player in the world today)
10. Keith Galloway (Best Front rower on the field along with Kite and Rose. Needs a massive game and needs to show that he can dominate against a great pack)
11. Liam Fulton (Good trial form sees Liam in the starting side. Looks extremely dangerous as he is about to hit the line with ball in hand but needs supporting players running off him at pace as he is about to hit the line so he always has a passing option. If he has support at the line we will carve up all year. He needs to be supported.)
12. Gareth Ellis (Worlds best 2nd rower with Nathan Hindmarsh. Needs support, needs to hit Watmough & Co very hard)
13. Chris Heighington (needs a big game as he is slipping down the ladder skills wise compared with the top backrowers of the game. Tackles all day but needs to expand his offensive game)

14. Jason Cayless (The jury is out as far as I am concerned. We will get a better idea after this game as to where Jason is at in regards to his rehab and ability to match it in the NRL in 2010. Replaces Skando on the Roster but can he replace him on the field?)
15. Junior Moors (Must be congratulated as he beat a field including David Gower who I rate but the Fonz does not. Also beat the Fifita brothers as well for a spot. He needs a massive game.)
16. Mark Flanagan (Unbelievable achievement to make this 17 as the man has only ever played 10 games in his life in the top grade in England. I am looking forward to seeing how he goes. He had massive ticker bringing himself to this country looking for a start. He played well in the trials and hit hard)
17. Daniel Fitzhenry (Needs to run straight and hard. Concentrate on his hands)

Is it not just possible that Fitzy is there this week to cover for Lote just incase he needs a breather? When Payten comes back it would be the 3 forwards and a utility surely.

That's an excellent write-up BB. Not sure Robbie is the best in the world and Watmough might resent not being included with Gareth and Hindy; but I nit-pick.

Good write up indeed. Although calling Moltzen a "brilliant halfback" is way too strong. I would actually agree that Farah at his best is probably the most influential player in the world. Fitzy got away a bit kindly. Flanagan must have shown something because it is my understanding it was never intended that he would slot straight into first grade.

I would have Galloway over Rose and Kite any day of the week.

What a joke. This is like a bad recurring nightmare. I can see Fitzy starting for Lote - with Lote not coming on until late in the 1st half, or early 2nd half.

How on earth Taumata is not used (unless he's injured) as a utility instead of Fitzy is beyond me!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Not too sure if Benji will be there. My mail has him in doubt for 2-3 weeks. Lets hope the magic spray is used to its full potential?!"Robbie Farah the best player in the world today". Love the passion, but Robbie is way down the list. He'd be lucky to make the Top 20!!!Moltzen, he is best suited at Fullback for now. He'll play for Australia as a Centre one day. Unfortunately, Moltz will be the Central Coast Bears number 1 signing!!!Good Luck boys for Monday. Hope we play the full 80 minutes...

These guys seem to think it will happen - at least they are working really hard towards it, and have willing sponsors awaiting.

i have no problem with us having a back on the bench to start the year.
sheens always does this to start.
2 years ago the protest was about moltzen on the bench.benji gets injured in the 1st half and we got through with a win.
last year it was hanbury who covered an injury.

wish it wasn't fitzy though,but if he has done the work over the off season,then good luck to him.

just on robbie, i got the feeling last year the whole farrah/SOO thing got too much focus on his part and to be a little brutal, the impression i got was that he was more concerned about himself than the team. i hope this changes this season. good luck to him, but tigers come first IMO.
i dont know the guy, and am completely open to being wrong about this - in fact, i hope i am!
and fitzy is sure to be under close scrutiny, but as bonstonker says, if he is good enough then fair enough.
