    5. Chris Hicks
    6. Jamie Lyon
    7. Matt Orford (c)
    8. Jason King
    9. Michael Monaghan
    10. Brent Kite
    11. A Watmough

    13. Luke Williamson

    Interchange:

    I expected a large bench to be named with all the injuries hanging around, but i think Burns, Jack A, and Bryant will drop off.

    Everyones thoughts??

    I take it then that Stewart and Hicks are fit, or will be, to play. Who is the better defender, Ballin, Burns or Bryant? The answer to that question picks themselves on the bench.

    Beaver is isolated so others don't catch the flu in the lead up to the game.

    Beaver has a chest infection. If it is anything like the one I have had for the last 7 days then it will affect him dramatically. In fact I would say his only shot would be on the bench with the intention of using him for short periods.

    Last night's news still had Glenn and Chris in fibreglass casts so there must be serious doubt about both of these players also. If Hicks is out I expect Bani to make an appearance.

    This situation is really diabolical as who is in or out will have a huge impact on the bench. If Beaver is bad then I expect Burns to get a nod (hopefully not though) for any half injury. If Glenn misses out then Ballin might get a shot. We won't know until Saturday and it could look very different to what we are hoping for.
