NRL.com says: Tommy Talau will push for a starting centre spot sooner rather than later. Moses Mbye could play centre or fullback, or even hooker depending how recent off-field issues concerning Josh Reynolds progress. Young Queensland recruit Jake Simpkin is also an option if promoted to the top 30 roster.

Former Dragon Luciano Leilua is in the frame for a starting edge spot but the club has plenty of forwards in every position pushing each other through pre-season.

Jamie Soward says: I’ve got Talau to start at centre with Mbye to hooker and Reynolds on the bench. I like the look of young Jake Simpkin at hooker but they’ve have to upgrade him from his development contract to play him before June 30.

Ollie Clark starts at prop so Aloiai and Twal can come off the bench together. Elijah Taylor keeps the starting lock spot because he’s important as a link man. I don’t have Leilua in my 17 for round one – he needs to improve his fitness and prove he wants to be in first grade.

Does anybody check this crap before posting, with the entire paragraph of reasoning bar Aloiai, being opposite to the lineup.

Then the clutch as a starter and one prop on the bench.

Bwaith

I reckon the listed team will be pretty close but I can’t see Reynolds cutting it at 9. Soward has no idea at all.

To be fair, I think Sowards’s opinion is different to the suggested line up.

Moylan wins in the punchable head department

Probable team selection from the pen of an expert? How can it be when he is the supposed Canterbury Cup specialist?

  1. Corey Thompson
  2. David Nofoaluma
  3. Moses Mbye
  4. Tommy Talau
  5. Paul Momorovski
  6. Benji Marshall
  7. Luke Brooks
  8. Alex Twal
  9. Josh Reynolds
  10. Thomas Mikaele
  11. Luciano Leilua
  12. Luke Garner
  13. Elijah Taylor

Bench
14. Michael Chee Kam
15. Russell Packer
16. Josh Aloaia
17. Zane Musgrove

Would be stoked if we ran out with this team Round 1
