Yes. We have options if Liddle goes off. Need a utility player on th e bench. Not a hooker.
Could use Benji in that role, similar to how Broncos used him off the bench.
Two props, a big backrower and a utility would be my ideal bench. No second hooker.
If every one is fit for R1 then Benji first up as the utility. If a half (Brooks or Reynolds) does a hammy or calf during the season, then the next round Benji to start in the halves and I'd slot Gamble into the bench utility role.
so a bench like:

14. Marshall
15. Twal
16. Grant/sue
17. Aloiai

If Gamble is playing good enough and kicking goals at 80% he may get a run at 5/8 with Reynolds on the bench. He would certainly lift the tempo of that game coming on fresh late in the half.
Some good choices Cleary may have.

I think if Gamble were to come into the side Cleary would either have Reynolds as hooker, or he will take Brooks place. Either or he look really good in the trail and is a pretty decently sized half from what i saw.

Gamble is 6 foot 2 inches tall and 97kg he could have played under 20's last year he wasn't a washed out 26 year old playing for Redcliff he must be included in the team at some point we don't want to lose him to other clubs..however I think Cleary will give him a few weeks in ISP and build him into the team as the year progresses.

I honestly think that we can roll the Chooks come Rd 1, our pack has the potential to steam roll the Chooks and have us come up trumps:

8> Matulino
9> McIlwrick or Liddle
10> Packer
11> McQueen
12> Lawrence
13> Taylor

14> Eisenhuth
15> Aloiai
16> Twal
17> Sue or Rochow or Grant

Can we play Thomas Mikaele or is it because he a Development player he cant play 1st grade this season ??

We have to promote Thomas in order for him to play 1st grade.
I have family in Balmain and the Western suburbs so i guess that makes me a Balmain Westie

Can't play him on a development contract.

Liddle probably not available until round 4.

Hope a back doesn't go down in the first 5 minutes. (McQueen / Taylor are not good enough for that now).

People still don't have Felise in their sides? He was our best forward in the trial, which at least gives him a bench spot in my side.

No doubting he was very good against the Cows which was great to see, the kid has talent and we never saw it last year. With the depth we have in the front row, it will be tough for him, but I think a lot will come down to Matulino and whether he is right for round 1 with his knee.

Let's see how he goes against the Sharks this weekend and whether the likes of Sue, Matulino and Packer all get a run.

I honestly would not select anyone for round 1 who has not played at least some of a trial. They would likely only be able to play limited minutes and if there are injuries, we would be left carrying tired players.
All the training under the sun will not produce match fitness

With the 2 Hammy bros in the halves there is going to be plenty of opportunity for players knocking on the door to get a run.

I'll wait until after the next trial to put mine up.
I'd like to include Gamble and JJF but I don't think they'll make my R1 team (unless a more experienced player is injured).

I am concerned about the thought that Lolohea won't play 1st grade in round 1 & Reynolds will spend time at hooker.

2 recruits signed long term on big money not being played in their primary positions. Why'd we sign them? What will the club do with them for the next 2 years +

Trial form is notoriously unreliable both for players and teams.I would be surprised if the starting team this week is the same for round 1.

Thoughts for our forward pack and bench

Packer 119kg
Mclwrick 97kg
Matalino 107kg
McQueen 106kg
Aloiai 106kg
Taylor 101kg

Twal 104kg _ Rochow 103kg
Eisenhuth 110kg _ JJ F 105kg
Grant 110kg _ Sue 105kg
Gamble 97kg _ Tui 94kg
A mixture of experience youth and plenty of size
Gamble can slot into the halves as back up or even in the centre's
Assuming Thompson at fullback
