    I know he shouldn’t be but if Madge doesn’t get him firing he won’t get another chance in nrl



  • As has been mentioned, we have a lot off contract next year, and if Bennett has a few follow him to Souths we may pick up a few from there

    16. Aloiai
    17. Eisenhuth

    Not sure what I make of this team tbh. I believe it’s our strongest… but it’s simply not all that strong at all



  • Cameron Murray please



  • Maguire will make Twal a leading prop in the NRL, he may break the Huth though.



  • @:

    Cameron Murray please

    Don’t know if true but heard he bleeds red and green. And wouldn’t consider any one else

    After their respective perfirmances this season Chee Kam deserves to be in the 17 before Aloiai IMO. MCK was one of our most consistent players this season, he definately has more impact as a bench player than in the starting side though, yet Aloiai was a massive disappointment. The broken jaw or whatever he sustained in the pre-season would have upset his start to 2018 but hopefully he pulls out a huge 2019 and fulfills his (gulp) P.O.T.E.N.T.I.A.L. That is a scary word to say when used in regards to our club.

    I was just thinking more in terms of size. Our bench is quite small, otherwise. You’re right though, MCK performed well when he was coming off the bench.



  • Cameron Murray has agreed to a long contract extension with Souths - 2023 or something along those lines (From the horses mouth)

    Madge was always about that Power game so I intend to agree regarding Twal going to that next level - A big emphasis was the middle three forwards for Souths so all three of the Burgess twins (A 20 minute stint from Tyrrell also)

    I’d be very surprised if Madge went with Elijah Taylor at Lock - I just don’t see that as being Madge’s style.

    I think this pack is likely

    8. Matulino 9. Farah 10. Packer 11. Matterson 12. Lawrence 13. Twal

    14. Aloai 15. Eisenhuth 16. Taylor 17. Michael Chee-Kam

    McQueen is a real chance at a bench spot but will have to build the confidence needed after his neck issues and get back to that form -He is a real X Factor that really contributed to getting Souths over the line in some games from his time there - If he is fit and firing he’ll no doubt be picked.



  • A few people predicting 2019 team. Everyone has Lawrence and Matterson as 2nd row. Fair enough. But no one has mentioned (remembered) Garner. I thought he looked very promising. Bench spot??

    10. Twal
    11. Lawrence
    12. Matterson
    13. Packer (a Maguire type of lock)

    14. Chee Kam
    15. Aloiai
    16/17 Eisenhuth/Garner/ McQueen/ Clarke

    If Liddle is fit, has a good pre-season and can play 80 minutes play him at 9, otherwise play Farah. Not both.
    & we definitely need an actual impact forward (or two) for the bench. Hopefully Maguire can turn Aloiai into one.

    I would only imagine Packer in short stints at Lock and basically be Madge’s David Tyrrell whom plays in short spurts - It’s obvious Russ is a better player but I don’t think he an 80 minute lock by any stretch.

    If I was a betting man I’m confident Twal will be Lock like Nathan Brown was and Sam Burgess was under Madge’s guidance at Souths (He is just that type of, a very high work-rate player)

    He did have Cameron Murray stationed at Lock for his last few games at the Rabbitohs but Souths weren’t doing well at the time and he moved Sam to Prop which wasn’t desirable - So I think Madge definitely prefer strong, physical and preferably athletic type locks.



  • Matterson to lock imo. Made some good cover tackles in finals for chooks. Also used to be a half so ball playing lock. Haven’t seen him much so I don’t know about ball playing ability though.
    Has anyone seen him pull off a big hit?
