1. Lolohea
2. Nofoaluma
3. Marsters
4. Fonua
5. Thompson

6. Marshall
7. Brooks

8. Packer
9. Godinet
10. Matulino
11. Rochow
12. Lawrence
13. Taylor

14. Gamble
15. Eisenhuth
16. Twal
17. Aloiai (if fit)

It's a harsh call dropping MWZ, but I think Nofo deserves the spot.
I'd honestly be a bit more comfortable with Mcilwrick at hooker, but Godinet played well against the rorters, and he's also quite versatile, so I'd be keeping him there for another game.
I also think that Fonua would be the best for the other spot in the centres, though I'm not entirely convinced on him.

Balmain boy needs glasses if he thinks Lawrence pllayed well.Aloiai for Lawrence in my opinion and anyone u like in the centres as long as its not Kev.Id go with Fonua we need some grunt on the left side seeing as we have no speed
Can’t say I agree with you regarding Lawrence but I’m not worried as every judge who knows anything about footy (coaches, assistant coaches etc) has Lawrence in their team (and in their leadership group) (and captain of that leadership group) but hey you’re entitled to your opinion.

I do think Fonua for Kev has merit. Fonua’s problem on Saturday was the high ball and if he moved one in he is somewhat protected from that. Not sure his defence would hold but his grunt in attack would be good.
What about Fonua in the middle a benchy for the backrowers?

If the Storm score down Nofo's side what will we be saying
I would give him more time in ISP
Make him real hungry for his spot
I wouldn't give it back that easy

Ivan's selection this week will be interesting. It will show us whether Ivan will pick a team that he thinks can challenge the Storm. I have trust that Ivan will pick the best team for the occasion. Perhaps bringing in Fonua for Kevie... offloads to Fonua would send shivers up the Storm's spine.
But does Fonua pass the ball or hog it?

I wouldn't be picking Fonua in the NRL just yet. He was good running the ball back but he dropped two kicks as cold as a spud. If I'm Bellamy I'd be telling my kickers to kick to him all game. He needs more time with the Magpies.

I cant see why you'd drop half of your three-quarters when we just held the premiership favs to 8 points.

Was thinking that myself. With a bit of a rest either side of half-time, he could be tough to handle. He's a little nugget!

This is exactly right there is no point dropping him for one game and saying welcome back when those in the top grade have done no wrong. Make him earn his spot through consistent good performances not just one. It’s easy to prove a point once not so much to do it multiple times.

No, he earns his spot like everyone else.

Rochow and MCK were both good and will stay. Lawrence the least impressive but eh's captain and won't be dropped anytime soon.
Ridiculous. Aloiai is our best backrower and should be close to the first person picked.
He's not our best back rower.

Cleary will stay loyal to those who played so well for us against the Roosters. 1000%
Are you kidding? Who is a better back rower than Aloiai?

1. Thompson to fullback, Lolohea to 5/8, Benji to 14 Nofo back in the team. (just a thought)

2. Anyone who doesnt think Josh Aloiai is a very special player isnt watching closely enough.
Its an opinion!

I’ve said before I’m not a fan of Kev. I loved his passion in the World Cup - it was special and I love his passion for the Tigers. But I just don’t see what he brings to the team. He has not offered much in attack for a long time and his defensive flaws are well documented. I totally trust Ivan’s judgement so I’m happy to be told I’m wrong - can anybody tell me the upside of Kev at number 4 for us?

I just want people to know that I was the first one to say we should give Eisenhuth a shot in first grade. You can all praise me now.
