The problem with people suggesting Gamble at 7 is the structure which has been set by Cleary. Cleary has Luke playing both sides of the ruck in an organising manner, more aligned to a traditional halfback.

Gamble is a ball runner, not an organising halfback. Tyson's frame is his best asset, and he belongs wider of the ruck creating havoc with his ball playing, size and speed.

If we are to see Gamble get a run in the Halves, it will be at the expense of Reynolds.
Newtown Jets handled Gamble's havoc quite comfortably...
Wests Tigers don't need a Coach.. The playing group has taken over..

Yeah and even Taylor would be a gamble but i think Twal, Sue and Marshall will need a run in ISP to get some game fitness.

Thats disappointing... Admittedly its also only a trial but as I said earlier in the weekend, these bloke in Reserve Grade need to be working harder than those in NRL to get their chance.

I'm not convinced on Reynolds, so I'm hoping to see Benji get a run sooner to see how he works with Luke, but Tyson might also be a good option if he works hard enough.

For me:

1. Thompson
2. Nofa
3. Kev (with Milne being watched in ISP)
4. Marsters
5. Fonua (sure a risk but we can't be a conservative team)
6. Reynolds
7. Brooks (in the absence of choice)
13. E Taylor
12. Rochow (v impressive on Sat)
11. Aloia
10. Matulino
9. Godinet
8. Packer

14. Marshall (sure hasn't played but I reckon he'd be fit enough off the bench and he's cover for a lot of positions)
15. Twal
16. Grant
17. Eisenhuth

For me Godinet has looked much better at dummy half. Lawrence just doesn't deserve a spot right now.

I hope IC does not pick players who failed to play any trial games.

Marshall, Sue, Twal, Taylor should all return through lower grades and earn their spots.

Would split Packer and Matulino up and start with Grant.

My bench

Matulino
JJ Feilse
Aliolo
McQueen

Need 4 forwards on bench when playing the Roosters

I agree with a lot of this. I think Fonua has to be picked as he dents the line and gets us going forward. I can't pick Kev but I can understand him being there. That backrow looks decent. Aloia and Rochow on the edges gives our pack some size. I'd pick Lawrence but I can understand Rochow being there as well.

1. Nofoaluma- was a fullback in juniors, is a liability on the wing but has the enthusiasm to make fullback work, tops tackle brakes.

2. Thompson - no nonsense try scoring finisher, solid reader and defender

3. Marsters

4. Lolohea- more suited in the centres. Not fast enough on the wing or skillful enough for fullback. With great hands and a good step, can provide wingers plenty of chances. I see this as his only spot that he can make his own.

5. Naiqama

6. Reynolds

7. Brooks

8. Packer

9 Mcilwrick- Offers better dummy half service than Liddle. More predictable passing to runners catch zone, giving the hit up runner more time and less pressure to plan his attack.

10. Matulino

11. Aloiai

12. McQueen

13. Taylor

14. Twal

15. Grant

16. Chee-Kam

17. Rochow

You had me to a point until I got to McIlwrick - I'll give you the benefit of believing you haven't seen him play.

1. Tui - Thompson deserves the spot but we need some speed and power so Tui gets it.
2. Fonua - tackle busting winger with poor defence. Same as Nofo. We have to pick him because we need some speed and/or power in our backline.
3. Marsters
4. Milne
5. Nofo
6. Reynolds
7. Brooks

8. Packer
9. Taylor - we have no choice here. I'd rather play him at lock or on the edge but we need better service.
10. Matulino
11. Rochow
12. Lawrence
13. Aloiai

14. Twal
15. Eisenhuth
16. Chee-Kam
17. Benji

Benji and Gamble should be putting both halves under pressure. Chee-Kam to give Lawrence or Rochow a spell. Aloiai is our best forward and deserves to start.

If Liddle comes back and plays well maybe move Taylor to lock and Aloiai to an edge spot.

1. Lolohea - adds spark and can kick goals
2. Nofaoluma
3. Masters - best centre at the club imo, offloads, post contact metres
4. Naiqama - haven't seen enough of milne defensively so far the spot goes to kevvie
5. Thompson - deserves a spot somewhere in the 17
6. Reynolds
7. Brooks - Gamble and Benji knocking the door down
8. Packer
9. Godinet - Tempted to go with ET but he lacks spark out of dummy half/ until liddle is fit
10. Mataulino
11. Mcqueen - i love him, rather him over Lawrence but i love his effort
12. ET - should play on the edge
13. Eisenhuth - with a little more aggression he reminds of Nathan Brown at parra last year

14. Twal - Our next origin player
15. Rochow - impressed me during trials, massive frame aswell
16. Aloiai - unlucky he isn't starting love energy
17. Benji - Utility
I don't know why but Braith Anasta pisses me off :mrgreen:

So so close but no cigar lol.

You really need Lawrence and Eisenhuth there.

Biggest issue is that McIllwrick is bog average
Its an opinion!

I don't know how anyone could name McIlwrick starting at 9 over Godinet at this stage. Our attack is snuffed out before the ball even gets to Brooks his passing is that slow off the ground.

Lets see what you say after 40 minutes haha.

Honestly dont know what to think. Like the forward pack except hooker. The 1-7 is very ordinary.
