    **** me dead that is a hard ask however for what it is worth I can't split Teams A, H & F.

    The reason is some of other teams contain a few 'dogs' eg John lomax, Adam Muir, Gavin Miller, Phil Blake, Mick Potter, Craig Smith

    Phil Blake had a good year in him.  Can't remember which one it was, but it was good.

    I know - since we have won the premiership, I have become way too complacent. It's like reading the end to a book...I don't know what to do next....

    BRING ON THE SEASON MATEYS !

    Good pickup clon, I was struggling to remember the 17, must have been a Freudian slip :)

    I was tempted to put Cuthbo on the wing, but its been done..

    Ryan's team is pretty close to nirvana. can't bring myself to include SBW. Backs always feast on the work of the pigs. Here's a pack from these squads:

    Ray Price
    Brad Clyde and Beaver
    Glenn Lazarus, Steve Walters, Les Davidson

    with Webcke, Ben Kennedy, Ian Roberts on rotation.
    Power, mobility, skill, defensive commitment, fear factor.
