    Good side but there is no sub to cater for the injury to a back. (We are going to miss Beaver's utility value.)

    I still wonder if Cuthbo is better off the bench at the end of the halves when the defence starts to tire. King could then start with Hall in the second row.Is there a utility sub who could be on the bench?

    Heath will have to cover the Half spot - Bailey will have to cover Centre & 5/8. Lyon will cover Centre & 5/8.

    But your right the wing spot will be an issue.

    We need Tony Williams fit when the comp starts.

    I note also that you don't have Rodney in that squad and yet I think he will be in the side.

    Could Hargreaves cover a centre possie or is he too big?

    C & C I'd be worried about Cuthbo's propensity to try the offload in what I see as a very wet and dour game.  Rosey-boy might get a start if it's a slush pit.  Just tell him to plough up the middle and carry defenders.  Bailey, Le Snack and Rodney seem like a lightish bench, something that Des doesn't favour.  Rambo's side looks the goods although I'd swap Hall for King.

    Big George was feted on here as being a creative ball player forward....the next Arthur Beetson according to some, so I think he is just as prone to pushing passes as Cuthbo. Also if the conditions are boggy he really will be a hapless water buffalo in the swamp, come defence time. I don't see what Cuthbo has done wrong to not be given first crack, Rose doesn't offer that much more IMO. The loss of Kite is a big blow and leaves us a bit light in the forwards no doubt, but Hall can play up front no worries. I can't see JWH getting a run barring 2 or 3 injuries in the warm up game. He is going along for experience only I reckon, and might get a run against Harlequins. Bailey is on bench for utility value. Rodney is open for discussion, but I think he'll get the nod.

    Of course this is assuming that Des sticks with Killer at 5/8, which means that Neumann will play...........which seems to have been his preference in the past. Maybe he will surprise and start Bailey at 5/8 and bench Neumann

    Someone posted it on here the other day.

    I'm pretty sure it was Channel 9 who have it on live Monday morning (March 2), starts at 4 or 5 in the morning from memory.
