Wasn't expecting that but glad Cleary is making some changes. I have a feeling tho that there will be a bit of shuffling before kick off, maybe Heleta goes to fullback and Naqama goes to wing with MWZ dropping out.

Good to see Brooks back on deck and interested in seeing how he and Tui go as a halves pairing.

Glad Eisenhuth and Tatola are in the extended side, very interested to see what we have with these two.

With our season pretty much cactus at least we can focus on giving some up and comers a run in the side to see what we've got.

just glad to see some change, just praying it's not like shuffling deck chairs on the titanic
Oh it is shuffling, but the one single upside is Cronulla are heavily weakened due to Origin - no Fifita, Bird, Maloney, Graham, Holmes.
Still get pumped by 30 is my guess.

Well Kev went ok for Fiji at fullback. Otherwise it really shows how ordinary our forward pack is. Sharks missing plenty though so hopefully we keep them honest.

Even their bench is as good, if not better than our starting pack. Our recruitment the past 5 years has been absolutely pathetic (except ET, McIlwrick and a rare few).

Hopefully we fire up and it's a good game. It's about all we can ask for at this stage.

That's the price you pay for paying big dollars on potential. Not much chance of leaving much cash for others. Unfortunately we aren't Melbourne where we can play 3 or 4 stars then load up on nuffies and still be successful.

Frozone at fullback? Was expecting Nofo, but ok. Glad to see Brooks back
Played Fb for Fiji in the test did ok, so i assume the selection is on the back of that. This may be his best chance of getting a contract extension as a back up to Lolo.

personally not fussed between the two when it comes to high balls
Neither are as safe as a good Fullback
Naiqama just needs to be alert as a FB, not play like a wing and be left stranded

Slater, Chambers, Vunivalu, Addo-Carr, Munster, Cronk, J Bromwich, C Smith, J McLean, T Harris, F Kaufusi, D Finucane, Nelson Asofa-Solomona, Glasby, K Bromwich

That's 15 non-nuffies of which at least 6 are stars...

Yes I would take Nuffie Bromwich X 2, Plodder Finucane, Numby Harris, Clueless Chambers, Gumby Munster, No name Vunivalu and Far out Kafusi....

Just for depth but...
Wests Tigers don't need a Coach.. The playing group has taken over..
