IMHO

1\. McKinnon
2\. Tuiaki
3\. Lawrence
4\. Ayshford
5\. Tuqiri
6\. Marshall
7\. Lui
8\. Galloway
9\. Farah
10\. Gibbs
11\. Payten
12\. Ellis
13\. Heighington

14\. Fifita
15\. Dwyer
16\. Fulton
17\. Moors
18\. Ryan
19\. Flanagan

The are some huge decisions to be made.

1\. You'd think that Cayless won't be returning this year.
2\. Tuiaki will return, although he will have to spend a few weeks in state cup
3\. Either Fulton of Flanagan will have to play state cup as they can't both be in the team
4\. Has Daniella stolen the centre position off Ayshford, meaning Ayshford to backrow.
and…
5\. Even though Fitzhenry did play well, IMO he just couldn't squeeze into full strength side.

Thoughts????

18\. Daniella

Some extremely hard decisions to be made there, and as much as Daniella had a brilliant game, I rate Ayshford as a better centre, with more potential. The rest of it is pretty much stock standard.

The other thing I think is, TNT may well be back this year, but will not be in the rampaging form he was in. if we were naming a 2011 team though, he'd probably be in it.

Great team there HT, that's how I'd have mine especially like you said, Tuiaki and Moltzen can't be considered. If Tuiaki is fit I'd drop Ryan for him but if Moltzen is fit, Sheens would definitely have a conundrum of massive proportions. Eventually he'll have to decide who his halfback will be. Who'd ever imagine that we'd have a half back problem like this. If it doesn't rain it pours.

Our Best 17, including injuries:

1\. McKinnon - speed, size and a good defender
2\. Tuiaki - outside Lawrence is perfect to confuse any defence
3\. Lawrence - 1 of 4 guys the team should be picked around
4\. Moltzen - his running game is his greatest asset and takes the pressure of Benji on the right
5\. Tuqiri - outside of Moltzen, he will be more devastating
6\. Marshall - playing left and right and linking with Moltzen and Lawrence is enough said
7\. Lui - will grow to control the ruck and offer a good kicking game/5th tackle options
8\. Gibbs - the domestic prop
9\. Farah - creative and scheming 9 who has a great kicking game from dummy half
10\. Galloway - the enforcer. needs to be interchanged better
11\. Ellis - workhorse, defends tight and defends well wide…
12\. Payten - Always talking to the forwards and allows us to be a better defensive unit when he is out there.
13\. Heighington - workhorse, plays it tight and wide well.
14\. Fulton - can play any position except frontrow, high workrate and offloads
15\. Moors - starting to hit his straps and running straight.
16\. Fafita - impact prop that has an X factor
17\. Dwyer - good worker and offers linebreaking and offloads around a tiring ruck

Is McKinnon going to go straight into First Grade or will he spend a couple of games in the NSW Cup, if he does have to play NSW Cup who will he be assigned to?, will McKinnon play fullback with Fitzy in such superb form

Great teams! only change payten with fulton, fulton can offer more utility basis style of play, therefore flanngan and dwyer can exchange their spots amongst eachother, mainly on the basis of who we play! and what style of game we are going to play!…for example if we need size cos we are going to run up the ruck, dwyer is in, but if the we a wider more expansive brand flanagan comes into conntention! Daniela has secured his spot for my mind!...he at least knows how to feed his winger ball when he makes a half decent break, unlike ayshford who plays more a second rower's game! :eek:pen_mouth:

BUT BEING REALISTICALLY, WE FOLLOW WESTS TIGERS "WE ARE NEVER FULL STRENGTH!!!"....hate to be a nazi and all but the truth is the truth!

I will reserve my judgment on Daniela till has had a game or two against a big fast well organized opposition. His speed is a great asset, I just see teams having big backrowers parked out wide running at him all day. I suppose it all gets down to where Sheens uses him in the defensive line

this team is at least a 2, 3 in a row premiership winning team!..may have to do something similar to the storm for it to happen tho! :smiling_imp:
would it be stupid to bring tuiaki into the centres? particularly on lote's wing! think about TNT more than likely has lost speed, therefore he can come into the centre position, where lawrence would then go to the wing to form a more attacking combination with moltz, only question is defence, but if moltz can play fullbaclk surely the bloke can takle!
