    02. Michael Bani
    03. Jamie Lyon
    04. Steve Matai
    05. Jake Webster
    06. Travis Burns
    07. Matt Orford
    08. Mark O'Meley
    09. Matt Ballin
    10. Brent Kite
    11. Anthony Watmough
    12. Steve Menzies
    13. Glenn Stewart

    14. George Rose
    15. Adam Cuthbertson

    Cut Williamson, Robertson, Hicks, Bell, King and Monaghan and only get Burns, O'Meley and Webster out of it, don't think you're getting value for money.

    Perry as well. I'd also shoot for a few fringe players (like the club has actually done TBH) as well.

    I'm glad you're not a selector then Ryan.
    The second team looks much sharper & more reliable.

    Duff - any team that is up an in our face in defense blow us away (point in case Melbourne). We lack intimidation and aggression. Our forwards will stand around and watch while one of our backs is getting beaten up !!
    It's great to have all nice guys in the team, but you need an enforcer.
    We have good forwards, great backs, but no enforcer. We certainly can't rely on Matai as our enforcer, as he is either suspended or injured.
    Reliable is great, that's what we have got with the Willow's and Afamasaga's, but I seriously think we need that steel edge, that angry attitude, and frankly, Kite / Menzies & co. just don't have that attitude in them. That's not saying they NEED to, but we need A forward in the team to be that way.
    Someone said on another site that Manly are already chasing Williams for 09. As ridiculous as that is, we need a player like him that won't take any guff !
    In the major semi, Paul Bowman elbowed G Stewart in the head as he was getting up, and I think it was J King standing behind him watching. I was appaulled, and guess what, Manly just take it. Teams are going to think they can bash us out of games.
    I seriously hope the Hargreaves dude is that player for us.

    I agree, we need an enforcer. That's only one change though.
    So I'd say keep the second YART & swap Perry for an O'Meley type, but that's it.
