Yeah I know. If Liddle misses out I'd rather play Taylor at 9. Godinet is nothing more than a speed bump.
McIllwrick offers much more imo, not sure why Cleary keeps going to Godinet. I'm sure there's a reason but it's hard to see.

1. Corey Thompson
2. Mahe Fonua
3. Esan Marsters
4. Kev Naiqama
5. Malakai Watene-Zelezniak
6. Benji Marshall
7. Luke Brooks
8. Alex Twal
9. Jacob Liddle (if ok)
10. Ben Matulino
11. Chris Lawrence (if ok)
12. Robbie Rochow
13. Elijah Taylor

14. Tyson Gamble
15. Josh Aloiai
16. Matt Eisenhuth
17. MCK

18. Mckillrick cover for Liddle
19. McQueen Cover for Lawrence

Heavy machinery outside - two potential weapons in fonua and masters on the same side - or swap MWZ and Fonua for more balance.

Gamble to get blooded.
Looks a pretty good side to me. I think Fonua deserves his chance and Gamble too onto the interchange bench. McQueen should be getting match fit now and start to press the existing 2nd rowers for a shot- mainly Lawrence.
Yeah cause Lawrence has done nothing this year has he :bash
I agree Steve, Rowdy has been our most consistent forward so far this year.

I think we give Fonua a shot as i think the Eels will punish Nofo all day after his terrible effect on the weekend.

I would suggest it's because he offers more in attack. Between Godinet and McIlwrick its is Godinet that is closer to the Liddle style of play. Yes McIlwrick is a better defender but he jars the halves with his service and is slow at the PTB.

Cleary could be thinking something totally different.

Let's hope Liddle will get over his injury for this game.

Did you watch the trials? The difference was night and day.

3. McQueen
4. Naiqama
5. Lolohea

6. Gamble
7. Brooks

8. Twal
9. Liddle
10. Matulino
11. Aloiai
12. Lawrence
13. Taylor

14. Eisenhuth
15. Chee-Kam
16. Felise
17. Grant
Ivan's Laws

I saw one, but not sure trials are the best indicator.. We have 7 games of the season proper to use for reference now so I’d rather do that. Liddle is obviously better than both of them, but I think McIllwrick is a little more solid. I think it was the attempted kick by Godinet into the in goal for a repeat set that ended up in the grandstand.. twice, that sealed the deal.

Im still enjoying listening to my team play, whoever is in/out. I just want them to be able to compete and put in an honest effort. This year has been great for that- other years not so much. We dont get the NRL games up here in Indonesia on sports cable channels and video feeds with highlights are often blocked for some reason, so I rely and enjoy things like the live match updates here. Im just offering my 2 cents worth.

Whatever Cleary does I'll go with. He seems to have a good handle on the squad and knows what he is doing with the players.
Probably gambling advertising Indonesia has a problem with, so its blocked...I may be wrong.
I couldnt access my TAB acct when we were in Singapore recently, both got large muslim population


A worry if Liddles out, i think our biggest issue from last week was getting rolled in the ruck - i feel MM would help tighten this up, hopefully Rowdy back also assists this area.
We also need to focus on our R edge....Im sure we'll see better results reverting to the sliding structure we saw earlier.
Benji really needs to tighten his game up as well.

I would promote Twal to starting prop, move huth back to 13, if Lawrence fit he comes straight back in. Drop sue. Bench: mck, ja, et, Felise.

Tell Marshall to run straight, not overplay his hand and trust his inside men in Defence.

Agreed totally.... Brooks is playing nice and direct this season, looks fitter than ever and dangerous. Like to see Benji not overplay his hand and let Luke run the show.
Well its nearly time to have a 'CRACK'....Go you :sign:

Have been reading with interest that most seem to think the club has great depth ..I see it a bit differently there are certain positions that are very light on IMO .

Spot on Joel. This is the team I would pick if all the injury question marks come through.
