    It'd be great to see Snake back at fullback but maybe 2012.

    I'd have to have Mullen at 6. At least Carney/Mullen.
    Mr 40/20 would be handy.

    Galloway would be the other one I'd look at (given that you explained why you picked Gidley). There are a few guys that could put their hand up for that spot but Galloway is definitely one of them.

    Basicaly I think it's too early. Way too much footy to happen between now & then.

    Lyon will not make the team which suits me.  Hopefully no one from Manly makes it.

    I don't think Hayne should get picked but he will.  You can rest assured that with Ricky Stuart being coach that Paul Gallen will be captain and Greg Bird will be in the team.  Guaranteed.

    I haven't seen the Titans this year, is Bird in form?  He wasn't playing all that well last year.

    Watmough won't even get picked for SOO unless there's a huge injury toll. His form has been mediocre at best.

    There are plenty of backrowers ahead of him. Gallen will be picked and even Bird might get the 13 jersey because of utility value.

    Remember Ricky Stuart loves the grubs. To me that says Ennis, Gallen, Bird and Watmough are locked in for spots.

    If Luke Bailey keeps his form up he'll be one of the first picked. He played 70 minutes on the weekend and was in absolutely everything. Given that and his origin experience he'll definately be there.

    It's probably also a given that if Pierce is the 7 Carney will be the 6.

    Swoop not sure which Watmough you've been watching but the Watmough in the Sea Eagles side is in pretty good form imo.

    I'll agree that it is way too early but I'll give it a crack anyway, always fun to look back & see how woefully wrong you were.

    1. Dugan
    2. Morris
    3. Jennings (Assuming he can stay fit)
    4. Lyon
    5. Hayne
    6. Mullen
    7. Pearce
    8. Galloway
    9. Ennis
    10. Snowden
    11. Watmough (undeserved, but will probably be there. Would pick Gifty over him)
    12. Gallen
    13. Lewis

    14. Bird
    15. Douglas
    16. Learoyd-Lars
    17. Idris

    I've been watching the one that consistantly gives away penalties and drops the ball at crucial times.

    He isn't it the form that dubbed him "the army of one". Until he brings that form back onto the field I consider him out of form.

    He's always dropped the balls and he's always given away the penalties. Nothings changed. He's 2nd in our squad to Matt Ballin in tackles made this year and 2nd only to Hoppa in run metres. I think your dislike of the man is clouding your judgement of the player.

    This weekend alone (according to the NRL site) he made no errors and had no penalties against, 14 hitups, 37 tackles, broke 3 tackles, scored a try and played 80 minutes.

    I'm not sure what you want from him?

    I can't see how Lyon will make the squad.  Someone should enlighten me.

    I want consistancy from him. I didn't see the game last week but it probably the first time in ages that he made no errors.

    BTW I don't dislike any Manly players. He'd be much more popular if he grew up and acts responsible. Just as we start getting good media coverage we have incidents like this and he's a serial offender. The bloke has to be thick.

    Some parents tar all footballers with the same brush, when they read or see all these incidents in the media. And potential sponsors could be turned off.

    I think they deserve the punishment.
