I'd prefer to wait until we see everyone get a run, but I get the feeling the following will be there:

1. Lolohea
2. [MWZ or Thompson]
3. Naiqama
4. Marsters
5. Nofoaluma
6. Reynolds
7. Brooks
8. [either Packer, Twal or Matulino]
9. [id suggest ET will start here]
10. [either Packer, Twal or Matulino]
11. Lawrence
12. Aloiai
13. Eisenhurth
Who’s on your bench?
Cant pick a bench until you choose a starting 13, but obviously one of Packer, Twal or Matulino will be there.

HUSH, HUSH

Which half and his coach are at loggerheads over team selections?

This player wants to swap a member of their spine with a rookie as they’ve struck up quite the combination at training but the coach won’t budge.

Who are we thinking? To do with Moses? Robbie? Cleary Junior? Couldn't be a current Tigers player, as Brooks is our half and arguably of our spine he's on the most shaky ground of all.

Pretty much my thoughts as well. Fonua then Kev for first and second replacements in the backs come injury or terrible form.

I'd like another prop on the bench though. Either a Sue/ Grant/ Felise, but I don't know who to leave out??

Anyone leaving Aloiai out of the side is doing a huge injustice to the team. He is our best forward. Beast.
Couldn't agree more. For me he should be the first forward picked each week.

I reckon Thompson needs to be in the 17 somewhere as a back replacement...he is doing very well from all reports.... ;)
You may see me struggle...but you will never see me quit... :D

I know this is a bit left field but I like the looks of this team
1. Tui
2.Nofo
3.Masters.
4.Miline.
5.Thompson (If he can handle left wing) or MWZ
6.Reynolds.
7,Gamble
8. Packer
9.Brooks (UNTIL Liddle is ready)
10. Matalino
11.Eisenhuth
12 Mc Queen
13. Taylor.

14. Twal
15. Aloai
16. Felise or sue or Grant
17. Marshall or Fonua
Fonua's fitness won't last 40min so an impact bench player only at best

Imagine a team with
Tui Reynolds Brooks Gamble and Marshall
I think there would be a lot of play options and keep the opposition guessing all game
i thought Gamble was a 5/8. Has he played much number 7?
One thing I did like about the Brooks/Reynolds pairing is one is a 7 and one is a 6. Something we haven't had for years. I would want to run out two 5/8's and no halfback.
Having said that i'd like to see Gamble is the side but i think he won't oust Reynolds at 5/8 or Lolo at 1 or Marsters/Milne in the centres and Benji will probably be the utility.

I reckon that is very very close to the team that will run out round 1

Very realistic. .

Marsters is the back up goal kicker...
Seeing Esan was played on both sides the other night, it certainly looks that one spot is his, with the combination with wingers being considered. Unless Taane puts in a performance that demands selection, I also think Kev may well get first shot with MWZ on the left.

My thoughts are it is either Ash Taylor, Milford, Foran or Reynolds

Gamble looks like a Matt Moylan style of 6 or 1, not a halfback. Bigger then Moylan, but similar ball playing and running style.

I would start him at 1 in state cup and see how he looks. I can picture him being a classy fullback linking with the halves and picking up Lolo in the centres who is at his best when he just runs hard. Could really see this balance working if Gamble is good enough.

Whats with this fascination of naiqama at centre? If he gets put in the centres in front of milne and marsters I will be spewing. He can play wing or a backup fullback. Thats it.

Why is everyone prepared to play people out of their best positions to accommodate players that probably are not as good as them in t he first place.

E.g. Lolo to centre (which he isn't) so Gamble can play Full back?

Reynolds to DH (which he isn't) so Gamble can play 5/8.

Brooks to DH (which he isn't) so Gamble can play half (which he isn't).

What Gamble needs to do is get it together in ISP - if he does (meanwhile we see what the NRL guys are doing) then look at who he replaces if they are not going well.

What is the rush (on one lousy trial against an uncommitted Cowboys)?
