    The most important selections for Saturday. Will Dessie go for Jack F, a noted lazy defender and not one to plug holes up the middle, but can cart the ball up? Obviously Murray will have noted his tackling style and if he's on, will suggest his little men target him. So if I was picking the bench I'd leave Jack for next season and go for tried and true defenders. Hall, Bryant, Wells and Cuthbo would be my selections. Maybe Ballin or Burns possibly. Burns is a noted penalty giver so doubt there. Ballin? what's his defense like? comments everyone.

    Menzies, Bryant (or Kite, depending if he's fit enough to start), Hall and Cuthbertson.

    Actually, it might be better if we start Bryant and King anyway so we don't have both Bryant and Cuthbertson on at the same time when everyone else is starting to tire, therefore bettering our defence around the ruck.

    That's the ideal team Ryan. The rotation of the bench is important. I'm with Downie on this. Bryant and Cutbo arn't as solid as I'd like in the D department. So I'd have King and Kite to start with Hall and Bryant on rotation but not together on the park for periods.

    Glenn Stewey is looking doubtful remember. Rumour seems to be he's gone.
    So I'd go with Ryans team, Beaver into the backrow & Ballin on the bench. Bani in for Hicks, most likely as well.

    The bloody wheels are falling off. I knew it.
