    Why do coaches never have selection gut aches? Or selection sore throats?

    Why don't they get a selection sprain from wrestling with a dilemma?

    Don't encourage him. If you look in any thread of the last two weeks you'll find one.

    Williams/Matai would have to be the slowest centre pairing since the Iro brothers.

    Matas we agree on something, that centre pairing of Williams and Matai is a worry.  Slow to turn and chase, poor and inexperienced in defensive strategies.  Lyon to centre for mine to give them some tips and clean up.  Hodkinson at half and Foran at 5/8th.  Lyon is the best defensive centre in the game imo.

    Possible that Des will play safe and start with Farrar and Matai in the centres, the only other mystery is the bench 2 props, Seu Seu, Galuvao, and Rodney. Who's going to miss out ?

    Some here seem to think that T-Rexs form at centre in the eels under 20s is the indicator.

    Why isnt he being looked at as a 2nd rower coming off the bench ?

    I think that center partnership is the most likely course of action given Des' history. I can see T-Rex coming in to cover for Farrar if he's still injured by the start of the season.

    Out of those players above i'd say that Seu Seu will miss out. Ballin can play 80min no problem & last year Des showed signs of making Ballin play 80min permanently. Seu Seu is just a depth signing.

    Noel Cleal when we signed him, "We see him as a Frank Pritchard like player".

    Here is Des' round one team (not taking into consideration possible injury):-

    01. Brett Stewart (I'm good with this)
    02. Michael Robertson (even better)
    03. Steve Matai (not my prefered option these days, but meh)
    04. Ben Farrar (or Tony Williams in the event of injury)
    05. David Williams (hopefully a better year ahead)
    06. Jamie Lyon (I'm good here - Jamie is a gun anywhere)
    07. Keiran Foran (Want him at 5/8, with Hodko at 1/2, but hey)
    08. Jason King (well deserved - has stepped up)
    09. Matt Ballin (Always reliable, always consistent)
    10. Josh Perry (Needs to lift - last year was atrocious)
    11. Anthony Watmough (needs to stay focused)
    12. Chris Bailey
    13. Glenn Stewart (Is a great player)

    14. Terrence Seu Seu (or Farrar - only question)
    15. Brent Kite (Hopefully is better)
    16. George Rose (Should be starting)
    17. Joe Galuvao (Hopefully is decent)

    Players who shouldn't have missed out:-

    18. Shane Rodney (How he will play for SCSE over Bailey is a joke)
    19. Trent Hodkinson (we actually have NO 1/2 backs in our team)

    As always Ryan...interesting.

    I think you are close BUT I reckon we'll see

    Lyon at Centre
    Foran an 5/8
    Hodgkinson at 7

    Who misses out.....mmmm..maybe Matai??

    Also I think Shane Rodney offered more at the end of 2009 than Chris Bailey, so I see Rodney in and Bailey out.

    A lot of this depends on how the young halves go this weekend
