A weak starting pack. Hopefully they can aim up.

considering we play Manly only 4 days after this clash the usual of Liddle, Reynolds, Taylor, Talau might not drop down if any of the guys are carrying knocks. If they dont you’d think they’ll struggle, even against a last placed Workers.

They’ll be strengthened somewhat with a few players dropping back from FG.

Liddle, Talau and McQueen not playing, Reynolds is.

I would play Seyfarth for the 80mins at lock. Feel like he could come good in our first grade side next year as a lock with Matterson going back to the backrow because our stocks there are weak.

Liddel, Talau and McQueen didn’t play due to the injuries and possible suspensions in first grade.

Madden got injured.
