OK phew

Brisbane what will they do with Bird ......

Maybe light on up front , might move McGuire to front row rotation and Bird to 13

Cowboys I think will try and get 80 from Granville away from home but play TMM at home

WT's Sue /McIllwrick as a 17th player

Roosters I think will switch between Aubusson and Taukieauho , will depend on who is 1st choice goalkicker

Penrith , absolute plethora of back rowers could pick almost anyone , hardest call was Blake or Peachey in centres , if they get more ball to centres maybe Peachey , losing Moylan is a good thing

Saints have a top forward pack , weakness at back in Mann , would Jai Field be an answer ??

Parra , what a nightmare this was , I think this is the best set up , light on up front , again might need to move Brown to front row rotation with the amount of quality back rowers

Warriors , front row issues in my opinion , but think the back row of Paasi , Harris and Mannering could be close to the best in the NRL , picking their wingers and centres wasn't fun

Souths , could be light on up front and the Farah / Cook situation .... went with Farah because I think with their props they need some experience

Manly look pretty good if Walker is the answer at 6 , centres are a concern and if Walker isn't the answer getting quality ball to their outside men could be a problem

Cronulla really have screwed the pooch in the halves in my opinion , if it works they look pretty good , if not who knows , great forward pack still

Raiders I think Craig Garvey could end up the starting 9 , and the backs look great Spine is the problem , but if it fires again could really surprise

Titans look better than expected on paper , but wouldn't want too many injuries , the cupboard is empty

Dogs , forward pack looks good barring one back rower backline is the worst in the NRL

Wondering if Faamuu Brown could be the answer at 7 with Mbye off the bench , really rate him , had some injury issues though

Knights forward pack looks an issue , but it has an evenness about it and their bench is pretty good , short a prop I think

Not sure what will happen in regards to Watson or Lamb at 6 , backs OK

Storm are going to be a powerhouse again with such great depth in the backs , if Croft can back it up for 24 rounds Cows v Storm GF replay

Oh well , time for you to pull it apart ladies and gents

See what I mean about the locks , Wallace at 9 , Klemmer at 10 , what depth

Yes that one was tough , but when you have a player who can goal kick , has speed out of dummy half , plays like his live depends on it every week , can get 80 minutes and is a quality defender he is in the top few hookers in the game

Some positions I swapped so many times I got dizzy

Looking at the WT's more importantly I have some more optimism , will depend on how the younger players step up with another pre season and how many points Cleary can ring out of them

We find a way to average 20 points a game in attack we can make the 8 , but injuries will be crucial :sign: , depth is far better than the past

Typing wasn't the major thing , picking some of the 17 was incredibly hard Brisbane , WT's , Cronulla ,Penrith and Knights took some time

Storm and Cowboys I barely looked at their squads :lol: wish we were like that

I'll do it tonight when we get back from going out and the kids are in bed , pretty sunburnt , but the young fella broke his new rod in with a ripper Grunter and a decent flatty so it was worth it , I'm getting old , hour casting for live bait and 4 hours throwing lures has done me in :D

Maybe light on up front , might move McGuire to front row rotation and Bird to 13

Cowboys I think will try and get 80 from Granville away from home but play TMM at home Granville won't play 80, probably Hampton at hooker

WT's Sue /McIllwrick as a 17th player

Roosters I think will switch between Aubusson and Taukieauho , will depend on who is 1st choice goalkicker Taukeiaho won't play an edge, he'll be prop or lock. Cordner, Aubusson and Matterson will cover the edges.

Penrith , absolute plethora of back rowers could pick almost anyone , hardest call was Blake or Peachey in centres , if they get more ball to centres maybe Peachey , losing Moylan is a good thing Blake will be first centre picked. Peachey will be utility

Saints have a top forward pack , weakness at back in Mann , would Jai Field be an answer ?? Matt Dufty will be picked at fullback. Mann will probably be utility again, unless he ousts Nene on a wing.

Parra , what a nightmare this was , I think this is the best set up , light on up front , again might need to move Brown to front row rotation with the amount of quality back rowers Mannah, Evans, Matagi, Vave, Alvaro...they have enough props and Brown will stay lock.

Warriors , front row issues in my opinion , but think the back row of Paasi , Harris and Mannering could be close to the best in the NRL , picking their wingers and centres wasn't fun

Souths , could be light on up front and the Farah / Cook situation .... went with Farah because I think with their props they need some experience

Manly look pretty good if Walker is the answer at 6 , centres are a concern and if Walker isn't the answer getting quality ball to their outside men could be a problem There is no chance Manly move Walker back to 5/8, he was a disaster there. It will be Croker, Wright, Hastings, Cullen or Hodkinson (if they sign him).

Cronulla really have screwed the pooch in the halves in my opinion , if it works they look pretty good , if not who knows , great forward pack still

Raiders I think Craig Garvey could end up the starting 9 , and the backs look great Spine is the problem , but if it fires again could really surprise

Titans look better than expected on paper , but wouldn't want too many injuries , the cupboard is empty

Dogs , forward pack looks good barring one back rower backline is the worst in the NRL Mbye is going to play fullback. 1. Mbye 2. B Morris 3. J Morris 4. W Hopoate 5. Montoya...not sure it's the worst

Wondering if Faamuu Brown could be the answer at 7 with Mbye off the bench , really rate him , had some injury issues though

Knights forward pack looks an issue , but it has an evenness about it and their bench is pretty good , short a prop I think Ese'ese, Lillyman, D Saifiti, J Saifiti, Heighington...not great

Not sure what will happen in regards to Watson or Lamb at 6 , backs OK

Storm are going to be a powerhouse again with such great depth in the backs , if Croft can back it up for 24 rounds Cows v Storm GF replay
