I'm torn between Suli and Marsters or Suli and Milne. I definitely have Nofo and Fonua on the wing though.
Suli and Milne, with Marsters being our bench utility

3. Milne
4. Suli

14. Marsters

Wow with all this great depth in the backs and forwards I'm not sure why we are not Premiership favourites,,
hmmm... Stars?

I like Lolohea, but he is no Tedesco, Tribovich or Slater.
Likewise I like Brooks as a person, but he does not compare with Cronk, Thurston, Milford, DCE, etc.

and our forward pack is good. But put Packer, Matalino and Twal against Tolomolo, Scott, Cooper or against Gallen, Fifita and Lewis Or against Bromwich and the storm and you can see were not a top 4 side.... Not yet.

That does not worry me. We will get there. We may do very very well this year or we may come 12th..... Good teams take time to GEL and if we do better then 10th I will be impressed.

I agree with Geo. I reckon we will win the comp this year.

I keep reading our team list and I am just seeing too many backs. Everyone seems to knock the speed of our players, weirdly I would not be surprised if Luke Brooks was faster then our wingers.

1. Lolohea
2. Nofoaluma
3. Milne
4. Suli
5. Fonua

Oh that leaves out:
Marsters, Naiqama, Thompson, Cheekam.

Far too much depth on that bench. Marsters is a welcome surprise, but having 3 spare tyres sucks. I think Cheekam is the odd one out.

It is a real shame because these guys are all semi first grade. Naiqama particularly has probably earned a starting spot (from a no way you play spot).

Cleary recruited one more player then he needed, meaning we could have upgraded someone to Graham, Heighinton, Morris or another player that was on the market. Its a mistake but not a bad one at all.
We've got plenty of depth in our forwards as well:

Backrowers: Chee-Kam, Lawrence, Aloiai, Eisenhuth, Taylor, McQueen, Sue, Rochow, Marsters.
Front rowers: Matulino, Packer, Twal, Grant, Sue, Eisenhuth, Felise.

Not looking to bad there. Also yeah, I'm pretty sure Brooks is faster than any of our outside backs.
maybe we should throw brooksy on the wing

Suli (if fit) and Milne with Marsters as bench utility.
The star of the team is the team.
