Probably, but I'd add Taylor as a starter for his leadership & defence, and Aloiai on the bench.
Yep. I don't think anyone can say for certain who will run out in remaining 9 positions much before R1 kicks offs. Which is more than half the spots in the 17.
18th man Lawrence.
I really wanted to see Marsters progress this year in NRL however if Suli and Milne are 100% fit I'd say they are very slightly ahead at centre and I went Benji on the bench ahead of Marsters on the bench as a utility (only because of what he did for the Broncos from the bench in 2017). Taylor is my backrow option on the bench ,once again just ahead of Marsters because he can play all backrow positions as well as DH (he may even start at DH). I'm sure Marsters will get his chance soon enough.
Lawrence, Grant, Rochow, Kev, Fonua, MWZ will all be very good back ups. If any player in the 17 isn't 100% fit, they shouldn't start as all our replacements are experienced NRL players and there isn't much between them. So however is fittest should start.

fonua is definatly a handy back-up.....but didnt we want speed in our backline?...i thought MWZ was fitter and therefore faster over the offseason
2017 was a shocking season for the WestsTigers. However I don't think the Wests Tigers were really dominated in the forwards after Eisenhuth started at lock for the last 6 games of the year. Didn't he average something like 130 metres and a crap load of tackles. He had the ability to wrap the ball up and turn the ball carrier. His play was a bright end to a bad season. Why change one of the only good things out of 2017?

Fully agree with u > i believe Eiso is a definate starter
ok, making the team:
4. suli (milne if suli not fit)
i like the look of that team
I completely agree. I think a likely backrow is Taylor at lock in the centre and Lawrence and McQueen as edge backrowers.
Personally I think I'd play Taylor on the right edge and play 3 props which is how most teams play now.
Double shoulder surgery takes time to heal...has not even began contact work yet...
Wests Tigers don't need a Coach.. The playing group has taken over..
