    With Siro and Parker fit who is our best 17? Elliott looked strong at centre and probably offers more in attack than parker, would be hard to drop elliott if he keeps performing although needs to learn to pass to his support players...
    Gosiewski is a tricky one, he definitely has X factor about him but is very much rocks and diamonds. Personally id probably have him in my 17 ahead of Boyle at the moment, can cover centre and adds impact off the bench.
    Paseka I wish he would develop leg drive, probably his best game last night but really needs to develop his leg drive to become an elite prop

      Im just happy if the guys that have to make way for the stars are first cab off the rank.
      Elliott has been outstanding and deserves his spot.

        Elliott's failure to pass that ball may be one of the reasons he has struggled to locke down a FG gig ... decision making under stress ... having said that, 2 good runs last night ... but I prefr Parker for both defense and knowing how and when to pass ...

        GoJetSki is an interesting one ... very much a work in progress .... still young and plenty of upside if he becomes consistent ....

        I get the feeling with Paseka he is still a young man in a big mans body .... the next 12 months of maturity will be the make or break for him and define his limits .... my hope as he matures is that he develops the confidence and killer instinct his frame threatens ..

          Elliott botched it absolutely. Maybe not the first time from memory
          Last week DCE dead set hogged it and cost us a try, very similar. Not botched , hogged. Nothing was mentioned on here from memory.

            I'd like to see Paseka develop a good face palm, he is growing into a decent forward, defenders are trying to cut him in half (how could you tackle him high) And dropping down early to tackle him.

              He has been improving but we need more performances like last night, and not just against former teams. But he is young and patience is worth it at this time

                  The thing which has surprised me with Elliott is his ability to make his own attack, and why I may have him ahead of Parker

                  Not just a one off for Elliott either, he did Josh Morris like a dogs dinner at Shark Park and he is one of the best defensive centres around

                      So happy that we can even have a thread like this. Twelve months can be an age in football.

                        Pretty much agree Robbo, but with finals comes a far more physical arena and for that very reason I feel Parkers defence is a Must to not only stop them, but hurt and create error.
                        Also his attack is not as electric as what Elliott showed last night, but more robust and he will be needed when the game turns into war fare come finals.
                        The Jetski surprised me, he seems to grab at the ball every time, yet when he holds is quite a powerful edge runner and can be a handful, ahead of Boyle imo..
                        Paseka is a definate Top 17 based on that game and Waddell is also a fair bloke to come off the wood late in halves and will only improve.

                          Until Lawrence axed Paseka last night he was 5-10 post contact all night.....he dipped after that, so wasn't as upright as he does have a big target area, but who in the hell would want to get in front of that Monster ?

                            I'm sure Parker and Siro will be back in and no dought Jetski and Elliot will play the role when injuries occur.

                              As well as Elliot played last night, not passing to DCE aside, I would still rather Brad Parker. Elliot is a decent defender, but I think Scorpio is better. And of course he does know how to and does pass to support players.

                              Jetski is a tough one. Siro definitely comes back in when over his injury, but does Jack then drop to the bench, and in place of who? Or does he drop back to Blacktown. Or does he drop back to being the #18 or 19?

                              I have a feeling right now that if anyone on the bench is in jeopardy of dropping off the bench to accommodate Jetski when Siro returns (provided of course that Jack doesn't get injured and continues playing well) it might actually be Waddell. Des has shown faith in Boyle and Paseka to be the bench props, and Jetski can do what Waddell can do, cover back row, front row and centre.

                                I'd like to see Suli take his own hit ups after a tap from the kick for touch.
                                He is a very good runner and does damage with a start. Why pass it just tap and go hard.

                                  Which is why I'd like to see a fend, I think it would get him more aggressive and intimidating.

                                      I didn't see myself on the Parker bandwagon coming into 2019, but I think he is still under rated in attack, I mean the try against Storm - takes that bomb and has the vision to set up support for a vital try to Thommo, plus has scored a few solo tries from close range beating 2-3 defenders....and most importantly his hands have appeared very safe thus far and smashes the ball out of trouble doing ugly hitups many outside backs stay away from and what I admire most - his energy, always fighting for his mates in every play.

                                          Probably agree with that. Des is well known to be a fan of a couple of big boppers on the bench, and whilst Wadell has played some in the middle, he doesnt quite have the body shape to play prop.
                                          Also i notice hes playing less and less minutes the last few weeks, not sure if that is by design or something else..
