That's a good looking side. Much better then the Dragons in my opinion. But matches aren't won on paper. A good attitude will go a long way to winning this match.

Good looking side. Really like the bench. Looking forward to seeing how the new players go in the team.

I'm glad Seumanafagai was able to grab a bench spot along with Sue. It's good to see they've been rewarded for their efforts last season.
Only thing to raise an eyebrow is Thompson in ahead of BMM. Seems strange. We'll just have to trust Potter's judgement.

Koro needs to spend some time in NSW Cup and work on his defensive reads. He's great in attack but it's not the NFL where you can take them off in defence. We can't afford to have a winger constantly jamming in and leaving the line exposed. Nofo and Richards both read well in defence so IMO are better suited. Richards or Nofo could also play centre if needed but that would be my back 5.

Well when Nofo comes back in Rd 2 then We can put him in but atm their is no one else...
Yeah, that's what I said. Drop Koro for Nofo (obviously when available)

The starting back row does not excite me at all , none of them can bend the line or intimidate the opposition , Boedene had one good game last year against the storm and his starting , as for Blair he better start earning the money were paying him.

Given injuries I think this is about the best side available ATM. Thought Austin was a chance for a bench spot, but it's only round 1.

I think it shows the depth in the squad given you'd probably pick Galloway, sironen, nofoaluma, simona when fit.

They should beat the red Vs this week. Can't wait! :sign:

Going into the game with 6 props, that's good to see & very different to what we're used to!

Hope we have a blinder.

Happy with the team, great to see Taupau starting!

I also love having a coach that isn't afraid to put 4 forwards on the bench :)

I'm hoping Lulia & Marika have good starts to the year and put pressure on those backs wanting to come back into the side.

That's a cracker team! Looks like Potter is now calling the shots.

I agree. Hoping Sue & Big Ava can do the same in the forwards. Really looking forward to seeing how they developed over the off-season.

For some reason I am super confident even without Simona and Nofoaluma.

Really pleased for Bodene. Injury and suspension cruelled him last year. However he has obviously had an outstanding off season and some reasonable trial form and gets a start ahead of some pretty handy players on the bench.

I really love the size of this squad. All players on the bench are able to make impact which I really feel we have lacked.
I personally think Patterson would have been better to start at 11 and have Bodene on bench. If there is an injury to any backs, Bodene can slot in at centre and move corresponding player to wing/fullback if needed.
I never rated Bodene too highly but I never thought he was crap either. Hopefully we can see the same mongrel and aggression we saw in that Storm game and if he keeps it up then there is no reason he shouldn't be in the starting 17.

Rd2 will be interesting as Galloway, Simona and Nufo are all coming back. I suspect that Nufo and Galloway will push out Koro and Ava but if they really show some terrific form in RD1 then you never know. I'm thinking that Simona will play a game or two in NSW cup just to get himself back into the swing of things...he did have a shoulder reconstruction after all.
