It still looks decent but the addition of Liddle and Suli would be good. The bench is still really good.

That bench is pretty weak. There's no way you could carry a hooker and a utility. It's one or the other.

Granted....Maybe swap Taylor and McLLwrick around.
I do like Geo's bench (starting Twal and Packer as impact) however Marshall off the bench for the Broncos did work in 2017.

I think there's definitely a spot for Marshall. But we'll need 3 big bodies on the bench too.

Many are suggesting Marshall as a bench reserve , but his defence playing in the middle in the back up 9 jersey would be very concerning for many

If he needed to play big minutes for any reason and was needing to make 30 plus tackles ....

You lads are very confident in Aloiais motor being able to play very big minutes ......

Sue struggles in the back row laterally he can't be expected to play more than 20 minutes

Hope he can , just hope it doesn't effect his explosiveness

Aloiai has gone missing for periods before when asked to play long minutes. Although he is still very young and his consistency will grow. I think Aloiai will play a solid 50 minutes this year. That’s the beauty of having Taylor start at DH. He can switch to backrow around to the 20-30 minute mark once Mcllwrick/Liddle come on.

I haven’t put the pen through Suli’s name yet for round 1, but it is in my hand. Looks like Liddle is another one who probably won’t be fit. That could open the door for Marshall to be the bench utility.

With 2 international props who have played 350 games between them, there’s no way Twal starts. Could be a different story in a year, but he doesn’t need to start yet. Besides, when he does, I’d be playing him at lock.

This is the best structured team to date factoring in Suli & Liddle not being ready. Any idea of playing a Utility and a 2nd DH on the same bench is simply crazy. For the first 4-6 weeks, we need to play structured football building on the implemented structures of the Pre-Season [these are traditionally simple]. Maybe once we can achieve these things week-to-week, we may see an expansive style of football that includes 3 Halves? [Winning the GF wont be important until September]

However, I wont be surprised to see Kev get a start over Fonua though, considering his good WC and tenure at the club? [both are plodders]
