That is a great side to face the Roosters. Great to see Lawrence and Farah back into the side. After the performance against the Eels it will be wonderful match. Who is going!?

Is BMM injured? Otherwise that is a strange omission IMO.

I think it's very clear that Utai will be our winger in RD1.

Interesting that Humble is named ahead of Reddy on the bench. It's probably nothing, but I would think Reddy will be in the 17 come the first round and not Humble.

Yeah I was shocked!

Good team, will be interesting to see who else gets a run or whether we use this as a close to NRL conditions type hit out.

Sheens said he would play this week- anybody know if he is still injured?

How is utai selected before reddy? I think that reddy is far more consistant than utai. He might not be as good from dummy half but if better under the high ball and in defence.

thasts a tough one... Humble offers more versatility as he can play 7 to 1 & Reddy gives you the double-up of playing in the Forwards or 5 to 1 (plus he can choose to hook Utai if he goes to water).

Sheens seems pretty content on the Moltzen experiment, so I'd say he wont be looking for coverage in the halves. Plus as we saw on the Kangaroo Tour, he still believes Lawrence can play 5/8, so I'd say Humble drops off on game day or off to BRET for him!

Hope Teddy has a blinder and gives Sheens no option but to pick him for the Sharks match.

I have a feeling though that if he is off his game we will see Reddy wearing the No 1 jersey in Round 1.

Very strong side and full strength minus Tuqiri and Murdoch. If Murdoch isn't injured not a bad move to give him a run for Balmain and get some more game time under his belt.

Would not surprise me though if Fulton is omitted and BMM is added to the bench if he isn't injured.

Plenty of action at C'Town! Cannot Wait!

Wonder if Moga goes up against Lawrence or Ayshford? Will be a great battle to watch either way. Who knows Moga or Tedesco could be fighting it out for the Rookie of the year

Bell played a lot better than BMM last week.BMM needs to stand up and be counted this year.
