It’s sad tho the callibre of players we have out…, plenty of first grade experience but I’ve just looked at Des’ dilemma. Should beat them still I reckon.
I’d rather have Corey Thompson replacing Mbye than Brendon Elliot replacing Trbojevic but that’s me
I believe Benji will be fine in the early rounds. He showed last year in round 1 that he has the ability to manage a game.
I have doubts that he will be able to do it for 25 rounds but a good starter and Leichhardt should be good enough against a poor set of backs from Manly.
The forwards just need to produce a platform for Brooks to create some havoc.Looking forward to seeing Mikaele show his talent in first grade as he has a good motor and bends the line, if Aloaia gets his hands right then we could have two strong bench players with a couple of workers.
Mbye will be missed but I applaud the coach as he needs him fit for the year and a knee injury is better fixed now than carry it for the rest of the year.Cory will be keen to cement a spot so will bust a gut to stay in the 17.
Can’t wait until Saturday afternoon hope the weather prediction is wrong as we want it dry and fast.
