You get the sense from some of mata's posts that our pack could be the weakness this year. He maybe right but lets look at the pack. Id break it up like this The Leaders - the blokes you know will perform week in week out Brent Kite - super season last year and will back it up Menzies - No origin to worry about this year, Experienced players who need to suport the leaders Watmough - really should be one of the forward leaders but hasnt shown the form he did early in 2005. King - Saw and improvement last year but we need to see more of it more often. Mongahan - was great last year but will be under preasure from Burns and ballin Bryant - Needs to fill the same roll heckenburg did, very solid benchman sometimes his handling lets him down. Really u would expect the those six to walk in to the first side des picks. Then you have the ones who should be there George Rose - Was great last year and improved everyweek looks leaner and could move ahead of byrant and king. Burns as second hooker You then look at the others and theres lots of question marks Williamson - I hate sayin this but i think willows had his time in first grade and by the season end he wont be in our best 17 however there will be times thru out the year when we will need him in first grade and while hes not goin to have the impact of others he will be solid. Dunley Same as willow, hes reached his used by date, while his dummy half runs are explosive his defense isnt at good as burns and monas Glenn Stewart probably deserves first go at lock hes been solid before in first grade its just his size thats been a problem Ballin - i dont know what to expect from ballin havent seen alot, have heard lots of positive stuff and based on that i think he deserves and opportunity at some stage this year. Hall - only wanted a one season contract so he could try to impress and get a better deal. I like that, it will mean hes hungry to perform. Sione big and strong, but will he be agile enough to be effective in the defensive line and to play the ball quick. Jake A Lots of wraps on this bloke and like the other signings in the pack hes a wildcard 1 of the 3 have to work out u would think. Cuthbertson gotta a chance last year and appeared to try to hard and made silly handling errors Based on that the pack i think he des will go with Round would be like this Kite Monas King Menzies Watmough Stewart Rose Burns/Dunley (based on whose 5/8) Williamson Bryant While it would appear the quality is a bit thin i think the fact there will be some heavy competion for places in 1st grade my go along way to make up for that.
