Hey guys, now that 2015 has finally been taken of life support I though we should look towards 2016. While I don't think we will be a special to win the competition from the start I believe we will be in a better position than we were this year. Below is what I think our first 17 and top 25 will look like: 1. B. Stewart 2. J. Taufua 3. C. Gutherson 4. S. Matai 5. P. Hiku 6. J. Lyon 7. D. Cherry-Evans 8. J. Trbojevic 9. A. Koroisau 10. N. Miles 11. J. Buhrer 12. L. Brown 13. F. Mateo 14. D. Lussick 15. B. Lawrence 16. J. Starling 17. A. Demetriou 18. M. Ballin 19. T. Trbojevic 20. T. Symonds 21. B. Leary 22. J. Sene-Lefao 23. T. Moltzen 24. M. Parcell 25. L. Burgess I've probably missed someone but I think that just about covers it. Looking at the team list above I still feel we are short a big impact prop and don't have terrific depth in the backline to cover injuries to be a true contender in 2016. Hopefully the combination of Jake, Lussick and Miles will get the work done up front to allow DCE to show his class with our still potent backline. I still feel that Matty is our best option as starting hooker, however due to injury I doubt he will start week one. I would see Koroisau coming off the bench either side of halftime and just before fulltime in place for a tired forward. I think the player to watch in 2016 will be Demetriou! This kid is going to be a wrecking ball playing on the edge of the ruck. He leads the U20s in 2015 in tackle busts by a significant margin. He is a nugget of a player who get very good leg drive. I see him as a future starting lock.
