    Assuming Kylie, Hecks, Kite are out and all rep players back up for City/Country game here is my team for this weekend.

    Stewart
    Donald
    Matai
    Hill
    Hicks
    Witt
    Monas
    BK
    Beaver
    Watmough
    Harris
    Williamson
    King

    Reggies
    Stewart
    Morewood
    Dunley
    Cutherbertson


    I can’t pick Chad Randall in the side as we need Williamson’s size due to the fact we have lost most of our forward bulk. I think Des will probably put in Kane Cleal as he has had some NRL experience but IMO Cutherberston has more potential than Kane and I have seen him stand up to a “near� NRL pack in a P/L semi final last year.

    If we loose any more forwards in the city/country game we will be in more poo than a duck at a sewerage farm.

    I reckon Solo or Ian Donnelly would have been handy this weekend. !BDH! %-6 :(( :lol:

    starting pack looks ok, our bench, which has been the strength thus far is obvioulsy much weaker and these guys will have to stand up, Dunley will have to have a huge game to make up for the loss of quality props, im sure he will lift another cog as he does when we are under the pump, much like being a man down against the sharks.

    Yeah not bad, but I'd still play Randall, and put Williamson on the bench for Morwood. The more experience the better I feel.

    we know we can win with randall in the team and Willow on the bench so for mine Randall has to play. I would look at Curtis instead of Cuthbertson though

    I would be tempted to play cuthbo - i think he would use the experience to guage what he needs to work on when he goes back to PL - also he is a bit bigger than curtis.

    Curtis has been good this year but i feel with watmough, beaver, bk, willo and G stewart we have enough of that style of player

    Blunty's backline with Dessie's forward pack would do me just fine. Dessie's Bench.

    I like the idea of having hicks back in the centres as well

    Tezza, I don't know he really got found out on Friday (I spose most did). I don't know if he is physically up to it any more.

    Yeah I agree with Daniel, Hicks must be back in the centres and Matai looks good.

    no room for mullane??

    lol

    he played fullback in PL on the weekend until halden got injured. maybe getting looked at as back up.

    i would like to see a hicks/hill combo with taylor/cleary or even johnson on the wing.

    but i dont think hicks will be in the centres

    The packs you suggest are very lightweight. We need some big men to make the metres in the early tackles in our own territory. Tigers are not huge but their bigger men can still play!

    Agree CW, we don't want any pygmies running around. The Broncos game showed us what can happen if we don't win the forward battle.
