I think having Edwards in the 17 wouldn't be the worst idea

But not at the expense of JJ

A bench of Ava, JJ, Liddle & MCK For mine.
With Lawerence at 5/8.
Lovett , Alioia & ET starting in the back row.
If Liddle does play , then I think have to play an extra forward against a very big Bulldog side.

With our three Origin players out. That's not a bad side. I'm not saying it's in the same class as the Bulldogs. But all things considered, Not bad either.
I did here a media person mention Simona may be used at fullback.

I know this is a view in the minority, but Id rather see the kids play the rep games, even at the expense of the NRL.

It is a big deal to represent your state or country even at age group level, I think it should be fostered and encouraged.

Last year 3 players (Nat Butcher, Robert Jennings and Jack Cogger) were withdrawn from the Aus Schoolboys cause they were 2 valuable to their clubs (there were no games being played at the time), I reckon that is rubbish.

If they have taken Liddle out of SOO so he can play NRL, I think it is wrong.

Totally agree they have plenty of time to make NRL debut but the opportunity to play in rep games are limited. Unless he makes it big in the NRL this could be his last chance to play rep footy

Liddle did play 20s origin last year, does it really matter?
Brooks and moses only played 1 game each.

I was critical of Potter at the time for not letting Brooks play and although this is a very subjective thing, IMO it does matter.

He has played in this game before, but opportunities to play for state or country are rare, and should be IMO prioritised as such.

Interesting that Kev has been swapped over to the other side... so MCK can defend against the Morris twins?

Will look forward to seeing Liddle come on against some tiring dogs forwards - hope we can get some quick ruck happening for him!

I agree with the Pom's side. Can see it happening before moving Moses. And Barra, in case you didn't realise the numbers mean nothing. Nofo is listed at 2 every week yet has played every single game on the right wing. It will be JAC+ MCK and Kev+Nof on the right, just like it has been every other match.

Ah - okay thanks BB.

Cheers for the heads up! All things considered, that's about the best side we can name given rep duties/injuries.

Not too keen on Simona at fullback. In the games i have seen him play there he doesn't look comfortable.

I think if you asked Liddle which game he wanted to play he would choose an NRL game over 20's origin every day of the week.

honestly i wouldnt even mind noffa at fullback over simona. he displaced teddy for fullback in aussie schoolboys IIRC.

but, top preference is clearly rankin then naiqama then noffa.

not too big a fan of moses there since hes doing well at 6 and want him to play as much as possible with brooks in the halves. also we'd have to promote a pretty average half up

Rankin has been cleared so Simona will stay in the centres.
