Myers is the big ?, but has a greater ceiling than anyone to join Koula in the centres
Fainu I think will feature often, as will Fulton.
Younger bro Latu Fainu is a Smokey and 100% in the 17 by 2024
Condon don't know much about, but seems likely to push for a spot.
Explosive dummy half off the bench a MUST and I reckon our new coaching staff will do exactly that

Think this will be pretty close to the mark with Condons spot possibly going to B Trbojevic, Bullemor, Fifita or S Fainu

See that Manly have Fletcher- Myers on the books for 2024 as well , obviously can see his potential . Really hope that he can get a run in the trials . Weekes on the wing , good to rule nothing out with a talented young player but not even sure if he has played there previously . Real dilemma , obviously has a lot to offer , maybe the coaching staff can bite the bullet and give him a crack at centre . Fulton starting as a 13 . maybe will depend on how well an off season he has had and getting to that consistent nest level . could be a bench option . Samael Fainu again could surprise ,seems to be really coming on well

I would consider Weekes on the wing despite not having played there. Main reason is that wing shares a lot of the characteristics of full back and is why they often fit well in those positions (Garrick merely the latest, but even Turbo started on the wing in first grade). This kid is being tutored to cover Turbo and often wingers interchange with full backs. Like full back they handle the up and unders well, return the ball from deep kicks, aren't burnt out by heavy defense, can have a bit of a roving role in the back line. Full backs need to be clever, line breakers, with speed and evasive qualities. Good wingers share that quality. Does that remind you of Weekes

Why no Turbo? Three weeks ago, Seibold said he will be fit for Round One. The recovery time for his 14th December hamstring injury was said to be 6-8 weeks. Also, Weekes is being groomed as Turbo's understudy & I expect he will selected in that position when Turbo is unavailable.

Everyone's guesses all seem a slight variation of the same team but I would have to strongly disagree with Aloiai as our starting prop. When fully fit, it's time for Paseka and Keppie to be our leading front row combination.

Happy 2023 everyone, Go Manly

I went with Aloiai and Paseka starting but can definitely see merit in benching Aloiai. Paseka and Keppie have both preformed to another level on the odd occasion they have been given a starting spot. Josh and Sips do what they do regardless.

Be good to see Bulemor in the mix somewhere . Rare speed for a forward and probably not that far off producing something really worthwhile in the pack somewhere
If the attitude in all the forwards goes up a gear, as it needs to. I can see Bullemor just running a muck at 13. Give Jake joint Captaincy and Prop. I'd love nothing more than to see him be a bloody leader of the pack. Every one of our forwards has to up the ante.

Even if other options present themselves we need Jake and Croker in the middle somewhere, for as many minutes as they can handle. They are our defensive glue in the middle.

He is our most serviceable option at centre. Not gonna set the world on fire but will do a job and won't let you down. Shifting Garrick to centre and bringing in a rookie on the wing involves more risk. We have plenty of flashy players around him, someone with the consistency of a metronome can be important.
