1. Moltzen/Teddy
2. Marika Koroibete
3. Chris Lawrence
4. Blake Ayshford
5. Rory Brien

Definitely has more speed than what we had before, Rory Brien is a great player with speed still young and captained the Parra NYC squad.

6. Benji Marshall
7. Jacob Miller

No complaints about yesterdays game, both were at there best and destroyed the eels.

8. Keith Galloway
9. Robbie Farah
10. Aaron Woods

Forwards went pretty well last year and were the highlight of our season, won't make any changes.

11. Braith Anasta
12. Eddy Pettybourne
13. Adam Blair

Anasta and Pettybourne have been really good buys so far hope they can keep up the good work. Blair may have found his new position for 2013 at lock.

14. Jack Buchanan
15. Ben Murdoch Masila
16. Liam Fulton
17. Big T

Fulton will also play a Utlity role.
Amazing how you think BMM will automatically be on the bench, he was so poor in reggies, the only happy person would be Fletcher, hopping you are right.
I agree, aside from one barnstorming run for a try BMM had a shocker!

Looks, in the main, disinterested.

My team

1. Teddy (natural fullback)
2. Koro (speed)
3. Rowdy (quality player)
4. Ashyford (give him 4 weeks to make position his own)
5. Utai (hard to put down, plays with heart)
6. Marshall (his best position and best 5/8 in the game)
7. Miller (persist with him for 6 weeks and let him play a half back role)
8. Bell (good defence)
9. Farah (c) (legend)
10. Woods (best player in 2012)
11. Pettybourne (adds size and good defence)
12. Anasta (experience and kicking game required)
13. Blair (seemed to have bulked up. lock might be his position)


14. Galloway (rotation prop) need experience once Woods and Bell come off
15. Buchanan (rotation prop) promising young player
16. Fulton (Utility) - one of our best players. Needs more size but quality player
17. Big Taqele (desperately need an impact player from the bench)

Fringe players

BMM (needs to show something in State Cup)
Ava (need props)

I just watched the highlights and although I didnt watch the whole game from what I seen in the highlights the tries were soft. The break that Galloway made was just pathetic defence. IMO we will need to be much, much better on saturday night.... The eels are in for a long long season and Tigers shouldnt take much out of that trial at all.

Miller got throttled by Sandow in one tackle....

would rather have utai than a lazy lote any day, what lacks in speed he make up for in effort, if only lote would take a leaf out of his book.

I don't really agree that Lote is lazy, I just think he is a real casual bloke and that shows on the field, doesn't seem to play with the junkyard dog attitude of Utai.

Lote's biggest issue is that his ball-handling last season was like he was playing with one of those giant inflatable hands at the end of each of his arms, he needs to improve dramatically with his handling and ball security.

I hope Lote can prove me and the doubters wrong, but I just get the feeling he is going to play until he is shoved rather than make the decision to retire on his own.

Ayshford looked promising for the first time since 2011. BMM looked smaller!? Utai for now at least. Lawrence was deadly quiet from the highlights. I'd be happy if lote never pulled on the boots again but love him for his time at WT apart from 2012
2 October 2005 was the greatest day of my life ...
