    below is the team I would select to start against the dogs in rd 17, the 5 Origin reps to come straight back in except for Kite to the Bench, I would retain the young fella Foran as the kid shows class and can get even better with some more NRL match fitness
    but I have 7 names to go into 2 bench spots (glad I'm not Des )

    1 Michael Robertson
    2 Tony Williams
    3 Jamie Lyon
    4 Steve Matai
    5 David Williams
    6 Kieren Foran
    7 Matt Orford (c)
    8 Jason King
    9 Matt Ballin
    10 Josh Perry
    11 Anthony Watmough
    12 Glenn Hall
    13 Glenn Stewart
    Interchange
    14 Brent Kite  
    15 George Rose
    16  
    17
    Heath L’Estrange,Ben Farrar, Chris Bailey, Shane Rodney, Jared Waerea-Hargreaves, Adam Cuthbertson

    I am leaning towards Ballin playing 80 min because 2 hooker thing that worked so well in 08 is not working as well this season
    Probably have Bailey & Rodney fill the last 2 spots

    Des won't stick with Foran, far too adventureous. It'll be back to business as usual you can bank on that. It'll be the same 17 we are used to, with Rose instead of Cuthbo on the bench. If Rodney's knee doesn't pull up then Cuthbo may get a reprieve.

    Spot on Ryan and C&C.

    If Rodney is out, then Hall starts, Cuthbo on the bench.

    I tend to think theres a very good chance of Foran playing against the dogs if SR is out with bailey moving into the forwards as he did this week.

    It's certianly a better option the Cuthbonator.

    Heath - i like him but Des doesnt use him. a waste.
    Heagraves - hes gone.. no point using him
    Rodney - will be injured otherwise hed be starting
    Cuthbo - see Heagraves.. and he played crap

    That team has utilities with Bailey moving into the halves and Williams in the backs if needed

    Kaza I would say that would be one of the strongest teams we could name, and would suit against the dogs

    Gee, we are all getting a woodie over a kid who has played one NRL game against some pretty mediocre opposition. Granted he played pretty well and his defence was pretty solid, which is always a good indicator of whether they may offer something, but I can't see Mr Conservative Hasler making changes to accommodate him unless injuries on Wednesday night force his hand. It'll be Bailey back to 5/8 and Foran back to Toyota Cup, which is the way it should be.

    The only change I can possibly see is Farrar on the wing for Iro Williams, who was only adequate again yesterday.

    The problem i find with Farrer on the wing is his hieght and his jumping skills under the high ball, im not saying its bad but just curious / worried as to how he would preform.

    The "YART" Ryan has suggested will be close to the mark!!

    I thought Foran was fantastic yesterday BUT his time will come (2010).

    Sad to say but Cuthbo looks like a liability, maybe a bit rusty BUT maybe it's a good thing he has gone to the Sharks!!

    Didn't seem like an issue in the games I watched him play in for the cows - he's got a good leap for a little bloke.

    I like Kaza's team but expect it will be more like Ryan's.

    If the side does end up being KaZa's to paraphrase a line out of Jaws "We're gunna need a bigger bench"

    Would that be the biggest set of reserves ever seen?

    I will admit to a little blood flow at times, let's hope it develops into something to rival the effect that Beaver had on it.

    Given the workload Kite will have in SOO, he can come off the bench, King really has stepped up lately.

    Ben Farrer can cover positions 1-5 if Dessie needs to rest Lyon or Wolfman who will both play 80mins of origin.

    I want Tony Williams to finally step up and terrorise that great midget Hazem.

    Foran can take the confidence he learned yesterday and dominate the under 20's. Des will not risk him against the dogs, as he will getr further opportunities in 3 weeks time prior to SoO3.

    Never thought i'd say this, but Cuthbo to play in QLD.

    Williams goes back to QLD to play in the forwards, Cuthbo was in great form earlier in the year but had a shocker against the Raiders and we can really only afford to carry one of him and Rose on the bench.

    Love it  :) except i would leave heathy there, and drop t-rex. I think the dogs will have trouble with heath if des times it right.

    as others have said.. i can see dessy dropping foran as he tends to do with other kiddos.. but i think foran is different. foran had one of the best debuts from a manly baby for a long time.. very impressive.
