I think you will find Koula will play rd1, International rules are different from NRL and there are also trial matches that can be taken into account.
Other than that I think your close, but will be a toss of the coin for Burbo and Gordie, I would go Gordie to change the game with his play from dummy half when he comes on.

Burbo is just a solid forward and really no impact.

Don't be surprised to see Waddell/ Brown and Burbo fight out a bench spot. If Brown can get back to his form of 2019-2021 then he will be a certain top 17 option.

Didn't know about the International rule you mentioned. Koula into centre, pushing Garrick to wing, and Paulo to Blacktown. GCKT would be my bench 14 but I don't see Seibs doing this in R1, trial yes R1 no. Schuster as 14 Waddell in the no.12??

I don't think we're going to see much more of Aloiai at 13, given he was switched back to prop by that Sharks game. Sure, we don't have a purpose built 13, but Aloiai won't magically become one, and Jake at the moment is the best link man we could put there. I think Seibold will be quite conservative for Round 1 in my view, except the wing spot is up for grabs.

1. Turbo
2. Saab
3. Koula
4. Garrick
5. Tui / Paulo / Vaega
6. Brooks
7. DCE
8. Paseka (if available)
9. Croker
10. Sipley
11. Haumole
12. Schuster (If he regains Seibold's trust in the pre-season)
13. Jake

GCKT isn't going anywhere given the absolute riots that will occur from some people if he doesn't return. Croker needs a break.

14. GCKT
15. Aloiai / James / Brown (depending on their pre-season performance)
16. Bully
17. Burbo / Waddell
 
If Brown can show that same mongrel he's reknowned for, Id put him in ahead of Waddell.
I dont how Aloai can factor in the equation. I prefer Lodge, Bully and Paseka as the prop rotation.
Vaega showed he can compete at this level in the last few games. Id give him a starters jersey in r1.

We need at least 4 solid middles, for mine it's Sipley, Paseka, Lodge and Bully.

Currently my thoughts but so much can change. Josh needs to earn that spot, he no longer gets gifted things in my view

I have felt the same way for some time about Burbo....but I just noticed as he added a bit of size to his frame once he came back, started poking his nose though holes and looking like "more" than a replacement.
I spent some time with him recently and is an absolute top shelf bloke, but that does not mean you give the nice guy the job and I feel 2024 is a "Must" breakout and make the impact that was expected before his debut.... i do agree with you 90% Jay Eagle let me add, though I just seen a few "moments" in his later games that kind of call out for a bit more opportunity and that there is more in the bag with this bloke.
After all that being said, I would have Gordie on the bench before him if I was picking sides today :wait:

Unlikely that Lodge will be ready for Round 1

6-9 months is the estimate. So that would have him back between Feb/April. I'm backing him to return round 2.
 

40 nil

It's only a game ...
A key to first round selection will be who is selected in which position in the trials. Also, Siebold probably won't wish to experiment too much for the big event season opener in Vegas. I think the tendency will be to go with the incumbents from the end of the season winning team. I would suggest something like this (barring injuries in the trials)
