    02. Ashley Alberts

    04. Jamie Lyon

    14. Shayne Dunley
    15. Kylie Leuleuai
    16. Luke Williamson
    17. Kane Cleal

    I'd personally put in Bryant for King - But Dessy is infatuated with him.
    I'd say Rose would be pushing for Cleal's spot.

    What would be your other option for Jamie Lyon?. I have doubts he will be here in 2006 (God I hope I'm wrong). Maybe Stephenson on the wing, Alberts in to centre .... Matai???

    A couple of things:
    1. Why put Lyon in there? If you are trying to be serious about the side, there's no point putting him in - it's too speculative. Put Robertson or Steppa onto the wing and Flash Ash into the centres.
    2. I'd personally like to give Monas a try at 5/8. Down the road I'd like him at hooker, but short-term I think he's better than Witt.
    3. I'd have Bryant ahead of Kylie, although probably Cleal ahead of Kylie and King. Kylie is inconsistent in defence, and King just plain can't play. At least Cleal has an upside to him. I'd like to see Cleal get a decent run this year. I think he will be good down the track.
    4. I know our options are thin, but is Willow still 1st Grade standard? He looked quite immobile down the stretch this season. I know he tries his heart out but not sure if that's good enough.

    then depending on form or injury, king, matai, alberts and cleal would be my first choice replacements, and monnas is only in there to support orford he is not the main play maker, if he thinks for one second he is king dik of the fanny tribe then he'll get punted to premier league and we'll give someon else a go. BTW lyon will NOT be at manly in 2006, we have to wait another year.

    :)

    I think I said before that he played better in 2004 than 2005. Very disappointing!

    Same here, but I guess it's the same every year. I remember similar expectation (disappointments) for king last year and a lot didn't change.

    Roll on 2006 though.

    Cleal can't possibly be in the 1st 17.

    Michael Robertson isn't a bad player . He'll be in the 1st grade squad. Not that there's much competition.

    I agree with Cleal not been there, Bryant would be infront of him by a long shot.

    You guys should re-watch the the Wests Tigers game @ Brookie this year. Apart from the unfortunate head high tackle Cleal got two weeks for, he was by FAR the best forward (prop) that day.

    Brent Kite, Jason King, Kylie Leuleuai, Daniel Heckenberg were all out.

    It was Curtis, Cleal, Bryant in. Cleal was the only prop to make line breaks, & show agression. The others were solid, but went missing. What I noticed about Cleal though, is that he was always in motion in attack, giving the dummy 1/2 options, whereas the other two went missing a little bit. Also he is excellent laterally in defence at dummy 1/2, something Hecks was atroucious at.

    One benefit of ALL these players though is that they all have a quick play the ball.

    By the was BK scored 3 tries in that one match. Shayne Dunley also had a blinder.
