    Reading between the lines BK was the preferred captain last year but he declined the position to establish himself.

    Also good to note that Monaghan has trained well and has a positive attitude.

    It'll be interesting to see where Monas runs out as against the Tiges.

    Reckon they'll start Monas as hooker in the first trial. Will give Burns a chance to show whether he is ready for first grade at 5/8.

    If he doesn't impress in the trials expect Monas to start the season with the number 6.

    Monas has built up apparently during the off season - his future I reckon is in the forwards however is handy back up half or 5/8

    I still think Witt will start the season at number 6.

    Where did Jason Wells play in the trial? Can't he play 5/8-lock, could give him a go, or even Clint Halden? There are a few options open for Manly at the moment.

    I didn't see the game but I believe he played in the back row.

    I've changed my mind on this matter.

    06. Monaghan
    07. Orford
    09. Willow/Dunley

    Dunley will play his normal role with willow having a break and maybe used as another second row late in the game.

    i would like to see Monnas as starting hooker,with Witty as 5/8 and then give (Monty) Burns a go if Wittys defence has not improved

    how good is it to have so many options for key positions compared to the last few years

    HIs attack will have needed to improve significantly - averaged about 1 try assist for every 5 games last year
