Heard J Reynolds going to have possible game time in the hooking role at some point during the game.

All this talk of Taylor Reynolds and who ever playing the no9 role suggests to me that Liddle is still a way off playing and his trip to Cairns is a bonding exercise. Although in Reynolds case, if the play Benji 14 in the real comp games, they may slot Reynolds into 9 when the super sub comes into the game. Anyway not long to go now and we can actually talk about real football

i hope he does have a stint there during the trial. i'd be interested to see how he'd go there. Hopefully he kills it. Not many standout DH in NSW these days.

I wonder if McIntyre is a smokey for left centre? From memory he was a right sided back rower but having been a centre in his juniors he could be in with a shot. Depends if he has a particularly strong step/fend with a certain foot/hand.

Marsters had never played centre in his life before he came into first grade.

Masters did a pretty good job of centre. Our RHS D immediately improved once he came into the side (however, Moses did leave at similar time and Lolohea did well in D as well).
I'm very much interested to see if McIntyre gets much game time in the trail. He's a big boy.
In a bad season last year, one thing did was a positive was how well our rookies went. We don't have many rookies likely to make the 17 this year. I guess McIntyre one that is a slight chance.

Marsters played just about an entire year in ISP at centre before making his NRL debut...

That's true he did end up playing about 10 games in the centres due to the backs being so depleted after the first month or so

McQueen has no injury concerns.
So why isn’t he playing?
He's named in the squad....
I’m guessing you missed Geo’s comment stating that McQueen and Liddle won’t play?
So, Geo is now the coach and selector?

We will see.

I have lived in cains for 36 years now
It's not the high temperatures that get you
The humidity this year has been a killer at times
The boys will feel it
But that will be good conditioning for them

Yes, and with the humidity, if it's still it will kill. Any breeze will help. The prediction for Cairns is very light breezes (3 knots) around game time. They will feel it.
