Rest of the squad looks good, particularly since Payten and Ellis are yet to join the forward pack.
Ahead of Daniela and even Beau is equally surprising.

I would assume because it was his number last week and his body shape means it is easier to use the same jersey

Makes a little more sense then, but what about Daniela, Latu or Tagive? Well it's only a trial I guess and now is as good a time as any to see if Utai will be a good replacement if we're hit with injuries during the year.

I think everyone knows what we can get from Daniela. He sure his quick, can finish a movement and a willing defender. Utai is an unknown and this is a trial.

Im happy we aren't playing Parra in the first few rounds. We will need to find some form before we have a hit out against them. They will BE the team to beat this year. The older players will bring needed experience. With Kearney they will make the most of having the best player in the game, Jarryd Hayne.

It's a good opportunity to give an Utai a free hit out without the risk of a possible error plagued game costing us two points. I hate the Cocks with a passion and will always take pleasure watching our boys do them over, but if we're going to test the waters and try the untested, now is the time to do it. If he has a crap game, its no loss, we can put Brown/Latu/Tagive/Ryan in for the first round.

Jarryd Hayne the best player in the game? I don't think so. Benji Marshall was voted the best player in the world and the best player in the NRL. Wise up.

Cheap tickets? As opposed to the full price ones the rest of us are buying? Just turn up on the day unless you have your heart set on a particular section.

With this post and the joke that you posted about Rowdy going to the Eels on a two year deal, I can safely guess that you're Parra fan.

Jarryd Hayne couldn't find his way in a defensive line, shows up for 10 minutes a game and relies on broken & support play to be remotely effective.

Take off back to the Eels forum with all the other geriatric Eels supporters.

I'm talking about buying them at the ticket window on game day. I'm not suggesting you buy of a scalper but I'd would say given it's not a sellout, I'd be stunned if someone was trying to flog tickets out there ABOVE the face value. More likely someone with extra tickets will give you a decent price.

Have not seen it yet Watto. It should make an appearance sometime before Sunday one would hope.

Was Parata injured or is he also a possibility for BRET?
