HI all.. my first post after reading your great site for years. Commentators consistently underestimate our depth for three reasons: 1) they don't follow lower grades like we do 2) they wrongly equate Reserve grade/ NYC success with depth 3) they are morons who hate us Surely, the true test of depth is the quality of your 18-25 ranked players... ie those who will do most of the back-up. On that measure, I struggle to find a team with a better quality 18-25 this year. Can you? Based on my team selection (see below) our 18-25 is; 18. Horo 19. Tafua 20. Wolfman 21. Blair 22. Vave 23. Hodges 24. Hasson 25. Jake T My team: Snake / Hiku / Killer / Matai / Gutherson / Foran / DCE / Lawrence / Ballin / Starling/ Symonds / Lui / Buher... Reserves: Jesse SL / Mateo / Burgess / Mason As an aside, that is the biggest bench we have had in years. Can't think of a team with a bigger, more impactful bench than that this year.
