    It looks as though they're going to pick an outside back to replace Johns.

    This is good news as I was worried they might plump for Orford and deny him the benefit of a proper off-season with his new team.

    They already have Gower & Prince in the squad so it was a good choice, Grothe was very strong strong it the semi against us.

    But how do you replace a winger with a 2nd rower and a half back with a winger?

    Bennet will figure it out. He's the best player selector i've ever seen.

    It's a pity Monnas was caught up in the cyclone otherwise I am sure bennet would have picked him as john's replacement.

    Monnas would have had no problem running rings (circles) around the poms.

    Speaking of Bennett, I'll be interested to see how our new poll pans out.

    I hate the guy, but I voted it would be better, mainly coz of his no-nosense policy which is exactly what we need. I feel sick......

    I said "about the same"

    I think it's the players that can turn 2006 around not the coach.

    Far too much credit and blame gets given to the coach in my opinion. Bennett has trouble getting a motza of highly paid stars and state players to perform at the end of the season (3 more wins than Manly). What hope does he have with a team with an centre on a walking stick, no five-eighth, Wingers who can't catch, a prop who makes 8 metres a game when he plays etc

    Des did okay with what he had and overachieved. :lol2:
