I think the balance with Matulino off the bench is right..

both Eisenhuth and Twal were great in conjunction with Packer and Matulino..

Some more minutes out of Packer would be behttp://www.weststigersforum.com/viewforum.php?f=264tter,,
Once again I was impressed with Twal's late step before the line and strength when getting over the advantage line but Eisenhuth? Great worker and low tackler but, to me, he is a real plodder with the ball.

No doubt that we have a couple of gems in Packer and Matulino. They really got us over the advantage line.

I like the idea of splitting up Matulino and Packer. They're both "first up" props, which provides a platform for the other prop and the rest of the forwards. It's a better balance with one of them coming off the bench.

2016 - Raiders, Bulldogs, Titans
2015 - Rabbitohs, Dragons

Agreed. It will help us to play well for the full 80 and provide a platform for Marsters and Benji to terrorize the opposition.

Yep, wouldn't start both.

We need the experience of one to come off the bench.

All I know is with Packer and Mats Twal Sue Aloai and Eisenhuth they soon will be calling us the best pack in the comp.
Taylor and Lawrence be plugging the edges .
