Unless his form says otherwise, Ava probably deserves a last hurrah next week at Leichhardt.

That's in 2 weeks. Next week we've got the Cowboys at Campbelltown.

Yeah okay, fortnight will do. Lost count of the rounds and haven't looked at the table for months.

JLJ is still a waste of space. Throw JJ Felise in there, we need the forward power against the Chooks and Taylor showed last week he can handle 9. Certainly no worse than JLJ in that regard but a better defender.

Joel Edwards???? An improvement on JLJ, but surely Felise would have been a better option

I don't know. Felise has been very ordinary when he's played first grade for mine.

Ive only just stopped laughing. This guys has had plenty of chances to cement a first grademspot and play well for us regularly. He is in reserves because he is soft. No one deserves a first grade game unless they earn it. He hasnt.

Felise had one ordinary game this year and a couple of decent ones. Given the game time he was getting and that he coming onto a side that was being badly beaten, he has done okay.

He is a first grader and I would rather we develop him then pick a player who is unlikely to here next year.

I thought Felise was going to be great this year but he hasn't really had a chance. Edwards is a backrower more so than Felise. Aloiai to me is better up the middle but he can play on the edge. I worry about his defence more playing that role.

I'm also worried about ET at hooker in relation to making a bust out of dummy half so look for him to do that and score a try.

Still I like the team. Play more forwards and give McIlwrick a break at the start of the game rather than the end.

So ET in the middle for the first 20 before moving to an edge I'm guessing. Not sure about Edwards on the bench
