Better than what I thought it would be, ie Payten and Gibbs not being injured.

GET PUMPED MATT UTAI!

I can swallow that... Sheens has a rep of sticking by his man, How Mitch Brown is not there after his Semis' form is beyond me!!
Looking forward to seeing Utai in Action.
Bring It ON!!

Great to see Payton and Gibbs named . I hope Utai selection doesn't turn around and bite us . Was their any explanations on the Brown \Ryan non inclusions ????

Perfect side IMO, personally I much prefer Utai to Brown.

Strong team. Woods can count himself unlucky as he showed arguably better trial form than Fifita, but his time will come soon enough. Payten offers great defence coming off the bench though he'll definitely be short of a run. Feel sorry for Brown getting overlooked by Utai. Dogs will definitely try and show him up in defence.

Will be interesting to see if Brown gets named in the lower grades or if he is injured.
I'm happy with the team, I reckon Utai will put in a top performance against his old team.
Look out Bulldogs!

Good looking Side. Isnt Brown Injured? I think that may be the reason Utai is there.

Should he run on Utai will be the 141st player to pull on our colours.

here we go! the season has as good as started.

i haven't seen brown do to too much playing wing (and wasn't he injured), plus this will take the high ball pressure off lote as they'll kick to utai. which surely can't be any worse.

great to see all the big boys named. though todd on the bench may just be him coming back from injury but could it be permanent move with reduced minutes because of his knees. especially at these early stages as there i a long year ahead.

From the press conference:

Q1 - Will Marshall and Lui be ready for Round 1
Sheens - Talked about players having personal lives. Lui at home with partner. Mentioned how press wanted Lui to be sacked.

Q2 - About Utai starting
Sheens - Beau Ryan would have started if fit. Utai played well in trials esp Roosters game. Made more yards and runs than anyone else in Rossters game. Sheens impressed by his fitness.

Q3 - People are picking Tigers to win comp
Sheens - Up to others to say that. We're confident but doing the hard work. Made fun of sucess rate of tippers
