If Cotric has another good game at centre maybe him of Ramien......that right centre spot the toughest pick

I like that team I'd stick with James Roberts and have Keary at 7 and Walker at 6.

Hope Cody Walker flicks Peachey off the bench :nod:

Fergie won't get picked by Freddy. He didn't bother to turn up for some pre season Blues Camp :confused:

I filled out one of those pick your origin team surveys on NRL.com and Brendon Elliot was one of the options for QLD fullback. I know he has been awesome, but an origin option at this stage??? or more a case of listing current qld eligible fullbacks. A crack at an emerging origin squad would be a massive bonus/reward tho.

@Disco, I’d have Gutho in the centres for Ramien and Murray on the bench for Matterson. I’d also consider Finucane over McLean.

No utility on the bench then?

I like Murray but Matterson can cover centre, 5/8 and backrow

No doubt he is a good player but I want more spark from a bench utility. Someone like Cody Walker for example. If there’s no injuries, your carrying someone who is solid but unlikely to be a game breaker.

So I wouldn’t go with a true utility but Murray has the ability to change the tempo of the game through quick play the balls.

In my team, if Cook goes down, I reckon Murray could pinch hit at hooker (like Radley - I think if Matterson is the utility, you’d have to move Keary of Cleary to hooker so in my view the overall team is further weakened). If a half or FB goes down, move Mitchell to 5/8 and Chricton to the centres.

We’re splitting hairs here - either way it’s a strong team!

Ramien has been struggling a bit this year hasn’t he ? If it is a one game caretaker scenario until Tom gets back I’d go Josh Morris probably

Haven’t thought enough about it to name a full 17, but I’m pretty concerned about losing Jake, he holds that middle together defensively and does a huge job that is irreplaceable

Halves I would go Keary and Reynolds, for a few reasons. It has the club combo of Keary/Cordner/Mitchell operating on the left, Keary and Reynolds won a comp together, and there is also the Cook/Reynolds club combo too

Aubusson is the most versatile player in the NRL. He never lets Easts down and is just a true professional. I'd love him to be in the Manly squad.
