    It's going to be tough ask for whoever comes in. Hopefully this will fire the team up to try and protect whoever comes up, might be just the salt the forwards need to dominate the Queens pack.

    All those kids mentioned are really showing promise.

    It'll be a good reward for whoever gets the gig.

    I reckon Oldfield or Shorter on the left wing. Both go really well and having matai next them should help (except in defence) if Gasnier tears Matai like McDougall did. It will be between these 2 as Davey has only returned from injury and Sheehan is ordinary at best.

    I wouldn't be surprised if none of them came up, and Seu Seu and Bailey were used to somehow cover.

    Bailey could play wing in attack & switch with Mattai to centre in defence which will keep Mattai safe from injuring his neck.

    I must have had 1 too many Red Bulls this morning, because i can't believe some of the posts that some people are writing.

    MATAI SHOULD NEVER BE AT WING!!!

    Just wanted to make that clear to everyone. Bring in one of the young blokes from the U20's. They will do 10 times better than Bailey starting in the backline.
