    Rep time last year is when the wheels started falling off. It's very important we keep picking up wins here and there because our squad depth will be tested probably more than others. When you take BK, Menzies, Orford, Bell, Kite, etc out of our lineup, it hurts us more than when you take star players out of other teams lineups, because we rely so heavily on these guys. The Club needs to set a goal of say three wins during the six week or so SOO period. We should have BK, but we can assume Beaver and Bell will be out, Kite's looking more likely, and Orford very well could jump ahead of Gower and Barrett for that Origin berth. It looks like we have a couple at Brookie during the weeks when the players aren't available, but it looks like they're all against quality opposition.

    id have to disagree slightly. I beleive we have better depth then most. Just look at Newcastle , One player is out they crumble. I beleive we can still be competative . We could slide Monas in at half and Ballin in at hooker. Centres i am not sure about but again i think other teams will suffer more than we should.

    Assuming Ox, BK, Beaver, Kite, Bell get chosen and are out and there are no other injury of concerns an indicative team would be:

    Stewart
    Robertson
    Matai
    Steppa
    Hicks
    Burns
    Witt
    Stewart G
    Choc
    Williamson
    King
    Monas
    Bryant

    Bench:
    Rose
    Kylie
    Dunley
    Cuthbo

    If anything i think we will just be like a more confident version of last years team. Our depth is great. To have such a team that one week Steppa scores 2 tries and then be back in Premier League the next i think we are in an amazing position. I am looking forward to it a lot. Oh and im going to be at Origin 1, oooooooh Yeah

    Clon, if you think Mexico would be colder than Brisvegas, Corso Pete apparently has a warm safari suit you might be able to borrow.

    at to CW's points that at the moment one loss can see you out of the 8 and its even more important.

    Any game worries me, there are no easy games. Apart from Souths most teams can beat each other on any given day.

    Tigers in Tigertown will be difficult especially with Stewart out and BK and Beaver baking up.

    Having said that I believe we can beat them if we play to our ability
