    Nick is one of the only blokes that was talking and getting fired up, if he can do the job maybe he deserves a crack at it.

    Gotta agree with Matabele.
    Same side, ho hum. I suppose there was not gonna be any wholesale changes.
    We have let so many halves go in the last few years, yet kept the faith with the OX. Not saying I would have kept all of them. But GEEZ, the OX hasn't produced on a consistent basis. We should expect a top 4 finish from now on, that is our expectation. With the INSISTENCE of picking Lyon at 5/8th, its just pure madness. He was  one of the best centres in the game, (Proved it when he was playing there in some games  last year),and now, tagged " most over rated". He reads the papers, and I'm sure it effects his game. We all see it don't we?
    What have we got in reserves?? NBQ at 5/8th?? Arr hahahahhahahahahhahahahhahahahahahhahahahahahahahahahahahahhahahahahahaha

    Dont forget Robson, who has been a perennial reserve grade 1/2 for, what 4 years???
    Man, we should have offered that punk from Canberra a million a season...Its SO obvious where we are short.

    Now I hear we should place Menzies at 5/8th!!! The man is a true LEGEND, he ain't no 5/8th

    I wonder how much game time Willo and Bryant will get this week?
    10 minutes for Willo last week. Can ANYONE explain the logic? I dare you...

    DES, DON'T TURN ME INTO A CLONE MATABELE CYNIC!!!

    I will not stand for mediocrity!!!

    Strange in the side is a good start.

    Look at it this way. He has basically picked the side that came 2nd last year, who didn't fire in week 1 of the new season.

    It could be seen as a panic move if Des was to make wholesale changes.

    I think there's mainly one or two changes/ommissions that people are wanting and most wanted it to happen last season.

      I expect he will drop off the 5 man bench.

    Maybe Vaeliki will get the chop or should I say I hope it is him who drops out.

    There is noting in P/L who will help us solve the halves issue, yoi have to look at Under 20s IMO

    You won't see Keiran Foran in NRL this year.  He is only 17 and still eligible for S G Ball so Des will not consider him for at least another year or two proboably until end of 2009 when Orford's contract expires.

    The only value i can see with willo on th bench is, Lets say we are Leading with about 30 odd minutes to go or less, You take of an attacking player and replace them with a defensive player. But in the case when we are trailing as we were Vsing Cronulla well there isnt much use for him at all.
