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.
The other thing worth mentioning is that sometimes, actually a lot of times a coach favours players in a trial he has in mind for back up roles.

he already knows what Matulino, packer, Twal, Grant and Sue can do.

Felise is project player and thats why he is getting large minutes in a TRIAL
Its an opinion!

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
Where is Chris Lawrence..?

Would love to see Twal or JJ Felise start at prop with Packer with Matalino starting from the bench.

love we have size in the pack this year.

Hoping Aloiai and Twal kick on this year

How close is the team selected, for Saturday, expected to be for Round 1? Surely we can’t stick with the back line from last year. You have to get Milne or Fonua, or both, and a good goal kicker in somehow.

Stupid to select a team without a goalkicker. From the trials Marsters & Milne are terrible, Gamble will not play round 1, Lolohea has to be there

Have to score tries in order to get the right to kick goals.

So long as Kev is on the wing and Twal and Marshall are in the 17, I think i'll be fairly happy.

Reynolds used to kick goals in lower grades at the Dogs.

In this game I reported on, he scored 4 tries and 11 goals (38 points)

It’s great to have good depth, finally, but will be 0/6 if this is our back line. I just don’t see why we would include Benji on the bench when you have CLaw and McQueen in the side. Lolo could move into the halves, Thompson to FB etc. Forwards look great. Too many to fit in. It’s a shame ET doesn’t move to Hooker, leaving 4 forwards on the bench.
