As long as it's not Maxwell, I'm happy.

Is Beau Ryan injured, or just out of favour? (I hope for the latter)

Is BMM injured, or still recovering from surgery?

It is a trial, so i am willing to see what Utai has got. We know what Ryan can do, and we know Sheens is a fan, so I would not think this is a sign Utai has the spot wrapped up. Also, Brown's best spot seems to be at fullback, and IMO he doesn't seem very good when on the wing.

Kul wrote:well if anything, the fact that it's a limited bench means that we'll get a good chance to see how each player is going instead of seeing everyone running on and off every few minutes.

Going off last week's use of the bench we'll probably see Moltzen replace McKinnon for 30 minutes or so before moving into the halves for the final quarter of the game.
Meany will probably come on at fullback when Moltz moves to the halves, unless Sheens pulls Marshall? Hmmm....?
Bit of juggling, but it will be great to see how all the combos go.

Ditto the above comments re. Utai
Kul,

How did Utai go in the trial last week? :?:

Tagive was MILES better than Utai in the trial last week. I only hope that he hasn't been named over Utai because he will be eligible to trial for NYC beforehand.

Happy to see Utai have a run in this trial but Brown, Latu, Tagive, Ryan and co must be in front of him IMO. Other than the Utai selection looks like to good side and a chance for a few to show what they've got.

And I thought Beau Ryan had that role all sewn up... Game on!!

roosters squad is pretty much full strength, except with the young fullback kheirallah at 5/8 and fpn on the bench so i think this might be another rough outing for the tigs. having seen the squad it wouldnt surprise me to see utai on the wing in round one, sheens always favours experience early in the comp and rarely trials youngsters early on in the season.

Symonds will likely split the 5/8 duties I feel for the chooks in this one.

I can only assume that Sheens will promote Begovich, Junior and maybe a Spence from the NYC game

How Utai has earned a starting spot on the wing ahead of Brown, let alone Latu and Tagive is mind boggling. He lacks the pace of the three aforementioned players, and can't jump for a high ball. Really struggling to understand the logic behind that choice.

Rest of the squad looks good, particularly since Payten and Ellis are yet to join the forward pack.

BMM is still on the mend from surgery.

Ahead of Daniela and even Beau is equally surprising.
