we'll never know Ryan but I cant believe I am agreeing with a Yart, dunno much about this Bani but cant really disagree except maybe Nueman in the centers.

Unfortunately it will never happen.

It may go ok, but it has never been tested so we will never know

Hicks to left centre has merit, only concern being that the Stewart/Bell/Hicks combination is lost and he would never have played beside Robertson before.

Put jack A on the bench instead of bryant and I would agree.

At leasdt jack a looks like making a break and putting someone into a gap with his ball skills. Bryant never looks like breaking out of a jog.

Why are Manly tolerating mediocre players now.

I remember Bryant making a bust against the Tigers (I think) last year. When he got through he had no idea what to do so he tried to run over the fullback :lol:

I despise Ryan's YART obsession, but for once I'm going to pick the side which is bleeding obvious should be on the paddock this weekend:

B Stewart
Robertson
Bell
Hicks
NBQ
Monaghan
Orford
Menzies
Williamson
Watmough
King
Ballin
Kite

G Stewart
Bryant
Cuthbertson
Burns

at full strength we should be:

B Stewart
Robertson
Bell
Lyon
Hicks
Monaghan
Orford
Menzies
Williamson
Watmough
Kite
Ballin
King

G Stewart
Bryant
Cuthbertson
Burns

with the bench blokes placed on notice that any **** displays and they will be ousted by the other fellows that have had a taste of First Grade this year.

Apart from Glen Stewart on the bench you might be pretty right Matas

It is a choice between Willo or G Stewart on the bench. You have to decide who is better starting and who gives impact off the bench.

No doubt Willo starches up the defence so he starts. Stewart far more likely to break a tiring defensive line - so he gets the impact bench role.

Thats a team i'd go for Mata. Glad to see you've got Monas in the team, even better being at 5/8 ;)

I'd place menzies at Lock and Willow to the bench though.

Menzies is at lock and my reasons for starting Willo ahead of Stewart are noted above.

I'm not saying Willo is better than Stewart. Stewart is more effective than Willo as impact off the bench and Willo adds the most to the side when he starts and plays long minutes.
