    Injuries aside who iS in our best 17? I'd go with:
    1 Snake
    2 Taufua
    3 Lyon
    4 Matai
    5 hiku
    6Foz
    7 DCE
    8 BJ
    9Balin
    10 King
    11 Choc
    12 Horo
    13 Gift
    14 Jamie B
    15 starling
    16 Lui
    17 JSL
    Wolf not going great so Blair or Hiku would be the first two choices, it would be so hard to tell Wolf he is dropped and not give him the chance to play his way out of his slump.
    Bench is harder from; Starling Lui Red JSL Hasson São Jake T - a lot to fit into a bench.

    That's a strong 17, and when you then look at the people left out.....shows we have plenty of quality.

      The only difference i would make is whether Hasson or T-red take starlings spot… JSL is a must and so is Lui and Ferris, but i think it all depends on the kind of side we are playing….

          Does a pink fit involve catching balls?

            In a choice between Blair and Hiku for a wing spot I'd go for Blair. Hiku just doesn't have the pace or aerial skills. How good it was to have a tallish winger who can jump to aim the last kick at on Sunday, giving us another backline target besides Jamie Lyon.

              1 - 13 ....I replicate except Wolf for Hiku....just

              14 - Hasson
              15 - Buhrer
              16 - Lui
              17 - Trjobovic

              Starling & JSL next in line.
              JSL seems the better impact player for short minutes while Starling is a slugger who plays long minutes like a starting prop, but has not shown enough to pip the others for that role.

              Yes young Jake is being groomed slowly & has plenty of time but rate him massive & think he deserves & will get a shot, then be a permanent fixture.

              It's damn hard to leave out a fit T Red.

                  If you can find one. Injuries have always hampered his career, unfortunately.

                  T Red before JSL

                  Starling is our 3rd best prop at the moment but the grind may wear hime down over time. Lui seems to be growing in confidence too getting better each week.

                    I'm excited by that squad and how it may develop in the next few years. Hoping we keep the bulk of it with Tooves and his crew putting their stamp on it.

                    I do like the look of Starling. You need sluggers who play long minutes and do the dirty work, allowing Cherry, Gift, Killer, Snake etc to create.

                    Horo and Lawrence are of this ilk but are yet to fire as strongly as last year just yet...their hands esp have let them down.

                    I Like Lui, Hasson, JSL and TRed too..and .like all clubs, we need luck with injuries, but we really do have a lot to look forward to!

                      You have five props in that squad, and no backup for an inquiry to one of the backs. Buhrer must be in the 17 for either Lui or Starling. I'd have Blair before Wolfman, currently on form. Hiku is very unlucky to miss out. He could be included for T-Red who wasn't impressive in Reserve grade on the weekend. Our backrowers play for 80 minutes so T-Red wouldn't get much game time anyway.

                        I'd like to see Tyson Andrews on the bench this week. His role? Search and destroy! :p

                        We are three from four and all the fringe players are pushing hard for spots. Good times at Manly.
