Good team. Hopefully Chee Kam gets lots of mins at centre. Fine is out of the naughty corner, for now. Cassell return from injury. Griffen at lock (let’s see his match fitness )

Fine was never in the Naughty Cnr,It was more about players available as the NRL extended Squad was in QLD…with 3 Hookers… meaning Marshall-King had to play 9…

When Drinkwater Littlejohn and possibly Rankin and Hunt are available for the halves …Fine’s spot is cemented in the backrow…

It’s a strong looking State Cup Squad this year …Hoping Stringer can get them more interested than last…

Watson-Heleta at FB will be interesting to watch.

Guess Parahi’s ankle is still bung.

no mate… I’m expecting updates as good as mine last week. Hope your up for it?!

Looking good for Gold Coast though!

Surprising to see Heleta at fullback having never played out of the centres before. Sadly it would appear that Milone is still ahead of him in the pecking order. And i guess they don’t want to move Addo Carr as they’re possibly considering him as a backup for first grade.

I just cant imagine Heleta at fullback?

Wonder if this is indication of where they fit in the pecking order?

Makes Madness and Liomavale along way down the list.

Its a pretty good team isn’t it.

Not necessarily, they may just see them as possible impact bench players for first grade given their fitness levels so that’s where they’re testing them out.

Heleta at fullback is just strange. I think that probably does mean Milone and Chee Kam are ahead of him at centre.

Looks like we’ve got some decent depth though, I wouldn’t mind seeing some of that squad in first grade throughout the season.

Not a bad looking side, a bit of impact off the bench too for a change.

If this is where Liolevave stands he’s fallen quite a way from his junior hype level.

Still rooting for him to come good…

Remember there is an extended squad selected for the NRL side. Rather than seeing Heleta as third string centre, you can probably consider him second/third string fullback.

Rankin or Hunt will be back next week to take fullback spot. Thats when it will he interesting to see who is selceted as first choice centres.
