    Plenty of depth, just a little skinny around the halves as expected.


    Tony Williams added to 5/8 (won a qld cup grand final playing there) as per eggson.

    That's not bad at all when you look at it.  Don't forget T Williams at 5/8 also  ;)

    2 injuries in the backline and we are in trouble I reckon, especially in the centres. Say if we lose Snake and Killer (worse case scenario) then we are looking decidedly shakey.

    1. Robbo
    2. Wolfman
    3. Matai
    4. Farrar / Foran
    5. T-Rex / Farrar
    6. Foran / Bailey
    7. Hodko

    Adequate but not premiership threatening IMO.

    Our depth is better than many sides....have a look at say Penrith / Sharks and Raiders.....I agree halves will be tested, but otherwise I'm pretty cool wqith these guys!!

    Our front row is a bit scary.  Ideally you want at least 4, preferably 5 on a rotation.  5th on your list is a guy better suited to 2nd row, 6th is a guy coming back from major injury, 7th is undersized and destined for park football soon and 8th is a guy that, well it's Morwood!  2-3 injuries (as can happen in such an attritional position) and we're in trouble it would seem.

    Actually Matabele i disagree, I think we a very well covered in that position compared to other teams and other positions wihtin our own team.

    We have the two starting props then the two on the bench (thats what des uses) and then we have cover for two injuries then if a third injury to the props position occurs then thats when we sart to go to second graders which is very good compared to other teams.

    Then you compare that too the Second row/Lock where we usually have 3 starting (inc Lock) and one on the bench. So if we have one injury then we have Bailey two injuries we have T.Williams who are both playing out of position, i mean honestly Bailey isnt a proper second rower and T.Williams is being trained to cover the centre and would be playing out of position. 

    That is according to Kings Depth for 2010 though, I thought Cross could also cover Second row or is he another prop?

    But as with everyone else I am more concerned about the centres

    Cross is a prop and played of the bench for the storm, 5 first graders is pretty good depth, not many teams could top that.

    Saturday night will give a pointer to what's going on.  I just hope all the lazy play from last year is gone and some steel come back into the team.

    Don't turn up on Sat night DSM5 or it'll be very quiet at Shark Park.

    We were pretty lucky with prop injuries last year. If that reverses this year I also think we're not looking too bad. If 3 go down at once any team would struggle but usually it's not as concentrated as that.

    Add in Tooves as water boy. He is worth a few points in a decoy or obstruction play.

    yeah thank **** they both went to the dogs, as they have been both training with them for yrs. full strength is very scary but thats me being bias. the 3 quaters will be interesting, as loads of players there, halves too, but forwards just keep going forward.
