    The backline picks itself.

    08. Jason King
    09. Michael Monaghan
    10. Brent Kite

    The frontrow has been very dominant of late.

    11. Anthony Watmough
    12. Glenn Stewart
    13. Luke Williamson

    Dare I say this is the most "consistent" backrow in the competition?

    14. Mark Bryant
    15. Glenn Hall (toughest selection dilemma)
    16. Adam Cuthbertson
    17. Steve Menzies

    Great bench. I just think Hall adds more in attack...and well...in defence than Afamsaga? Afamsaga just doesn't seem up to the pace of the game??? Maybe with a full off season...who knows? He just still reminds me so much of Danny Lima and Mal Kafusi.....just lumberring, and immobile.

    This is how I think Melbourne will go:-

    01. Billy Slater
    02. Steve Turner
    03. Matt King
    04. Israel Falou
    05. Anthony Quinn
    06. Greg Inglis
    07. Cooper Cronk
    08. Brett White
    09. Cameron Smith
    10. Jeremy Smith
    11. Clint Newton
    12. Ryan Hoffman
    13. Dallas Johnson

    14. Matt Geyer
    15. Garrett Crossman
    16. Adam Blair
    17. Michael Crocker

    I actually think we can win this one off the bench. I also think that while Cameron Smith does some wonderful things out of dummy 1/2, Monnas is more diverse, and has a little more X factor (Can't believe I said that!!!)

    I think Orford / Lyon is a better 1/2's combo than Cronk / Inglis. Inglis is still just getting back into the swing of things after an injury plagued 2007.

    even though we all know it won't be, he will sneak a 2008 one in somewhere between now and Christmas :)

    When you are discussing 1 club and 17 blokes, there are only so many varied topics one can create over many years. Sometimes, topics will be re-hashed.

    I believe discussing the formation of the team is a week by week burning issue - hence the consistency around the topic.

    I agree with your selections and your sentiments re the team Ryan. Good call. Melbourne's outside backs were poor last Sunday and I hope they repeat their game. If our forwards do their job and hold their Melbourne counterparts then our backs are just that little bit better than the Storm's. Hall is better than Jack. Jack worries me in the defense department and can have a poor game with his hands. Hall should be fresh and raring to go. Monas will have to watch Smith and pressure him whenever he get the ball, move up on him fast and tackle. Beaver or Choc standing at 5/8 is a good call. Rock like defense around the ruck is a must. Please Des, put Lyon at centre to stop Filou or Hoffman running at the three quarter line. Matai, well will Matai lose us the game with one of his crap rushing out of the line moves? Just hold the line Stevie Wonder, pleeese.

    That's almost a 1st grade side !!!
    I expects a Bears, and a Manly victory this weekend.

    Manly should pinch Eddie Paea. Now that The Rabbits have signed Wing long term, and Jeremy Smith is playing ok...little Eddie might not get much of a chance !!!

    And that, right there, is the reason for so many years of failure. ;)
