Our best side v off contract best side

Just wondering how many of the off contract players you reckon would make the Tigers best 17


1 Tedesco
2 Nofoaluma
3 Lawrence
4 Simona
5 Richards
6 Moses
7 Brooks
8 Woods
9 Farah
10 Keefy
11 Sue
12 Thompson
13 Blair

14 Sironen
15 Taupau
16 Ava
17 Austin / Gavet/Lodge

Off contract side

1 N Gardner
2 M Duffie
3 M Fonua
4 K Auva’a
5 C Thompson
6 T Carney
7 R Lui
8 L Bailey
9 H Lestrange
10 B Hannant
11 J Buhrer
12 J Picker
13 B Lowe

14 W Mason
15 C Houston
16 S Vave
17 T Arona

Some positions are very weak particularly the 1 and 9 for the off contract side

If anyone has resigned with another club apologies ,this is going off Zero Tackle figures

I like Copley
Duffie will do

These five are the only ones that would make our side and it’s very arguable. The backs would probably only get past our first stringers when they get hurt five minutes into round 1. The two props would probably jump a few guys into the side for better or worse though.

I actually think Bailey would be a good signing. He obviously doesn’t want to retire yet or he would have and the Titans would have signed him by now if they were going to. He’d be closer to home and would come cheap. He’d be like a way better version of the Ray Cashmere signing. While we don’t lack props we don’t lack a grizzled hardheader forward leader so he’d add some value.

I’d be surprised if Fonua didn’t stay with Melbourne since he’s the only Victorian in the NRL. Auva’a will go elsewhere though because he is a reggies player that Souths wouldn’t have picked as needing to upgrade but after the season he’s had they will need to and they won’t have budgeted for it, so he’ll get poached by somebody. He’s good too.
