    Not sure about the halfback and five-eighth. Don't we have better options?

    That would probably be the worst pack ever in my opinion. Lui and Horo???

    Hope Killer is fit otherwise we will be pretty light on in the centres.

    It looks like Gutherson will become a regular in our first grade squad and I'm happy about that.

    I think we might see the 2013 Horo back. His last chance this year otherwise it might be cya later.

    Apart from the form of Mason and Mateo, I'm most looking forward to see Leary, Chee-Kam and Jake Turbo's form this year.

    At the trial against the roosters Horo had a big go, I think he knows how hard it'll be for him to get a spot in our side. If he gets the start due to injuries he'll give it everything.
    Despite everyone's fears and the media bagging out our forward pack I'm very excited to see them in action.
    Starling, Lui and jsl all had solid first full seasons in first grade, I'm expecting all 3 to take big steps forward.
    Jake T will hopefully earn a bench spot, it'll pay off hugely later in the season to get him game time in the early rounds.
    At the trial hiku was listed as a winger but defended in the centres. If Matai is out you'd think he'll play centre, Santini would be a very, very surprising selection.

    I rate lui. I dunno about horo starting. I'd maybe even start jsl. Don't forget Tyson Andrews too

    I agree with @NewwyEagle. At the trial Horo really got stuck in, he was looking for work and to me actually stood out as one of the players who did well.

    The biggest thing I like this year is I think we have a lot of options and a lot of players fighting for first grade spots. Personally I'd line them up as

    Snake, Gutherson, Killer, Matai, Hiku Foz, DCE
    Starling, Ballin, Lawrence, Lui, Mateo, Horo

    Bench: Jake T, Mason, JSL, Burgess

    The bench would then have some size, those are 4 pretty big boppers who could come on and cause havoc for 10-20mins spurts.

    With everything going on lately including that "parra" thread, I just hope some of you can accept the possibility that this game is definitely not in the bag. If we lose, i am predicting some to pop a sphincter.

    There were times last year when Horo's hands really let him down; he kept coffing the ball up in traffic, which is the worst thing a hole runner can do. Part of being an effective hole runner, is to take the occasional hit when the defence reads things correctly.

    However, he finished the year off quite nicely, running hard, and tearing in when the opposition had the ball. He did leave a gapping hole for Sam Perrett to score in the SF, but that was playing out of position at hooker, otherwise he had a fantastic game against the Dogs. Personally, I don't think we've seen the last of Horo; he will have a strong year.
