    Witt???

    Stewy
    Steppa
    Alberts/hicks
    bell
    Hicks/robbo
    Monas
    Orford
    King
    Ballin
    Kite
    watmough
    beaver
    BK

    Cuthbo
    lulu
    Dunners/willo
    rose/bryant

    willo was effective in attack for once but i feel that our established 2nd row left the foor open. Cuthbo has earned a spot

    I would go with:

    1. Stewart
    2. Stephenson
    3. Alberts/Matai (depending on Alberts fitness, he might need a run or 2 in PL for match fitness also)
    4. Bell
    5. Hicks
    6. Monaghan
    7. Orford
    8. Kite
    9. Balin
    10. King
    11. Menzies
    12. Watmough
    13. Kennedy

    14. Dunely
    15. Leulaui
    16. Bryant
    17. Williamson

    Main worries are:
    * Lack of quality goal kickers in starting 13
    * How Monaghan at 5/8 will affect Orford
    * Whilst the right hand side of Hicks and Bell are very strong in both attack and defence our left hand side is suspect. There are 2 main contenders for both the center and wing positions (Alberts/Matai and Stephenson/Robertson) but all have been a worry (especially in defence) in the past. Some people have suggested Hicks should go to center, however I don't agree with weakening our very strong right hand side just to help out our problematic left hand side.
    * Leaving Cuthbertson out of the top 17. I think he is ready for 1st grade but Williamson's goal kicking and defence is to good to pass up at the moment. He will get his chance this year though.
    * Our front row depth if we get a serious injury or suspension, however the form of our top 5 props during our trials has eased my concerns a lot

    1. Stewart
    2. Stephenson
    3. Bell
    4. Matai
    5. Hicks
    6. Monaghan
    7. Orford
    8. King
    9. Ballin
    10. Kite
    11. Menzies
    12. Watmough
    13. Kennedy (c)

    14. Lulu
    15. Dunley
    16. Willow
    17. Bryant


    Goal kicking should be taken by Hicks. Get Arnold down and focus on him as our number 1 kicker. We cant afford to bring in a 5/8 who cannot play in defence or attack (witt). Willow most likely wont be in the side all the time so Hicks is the obvious choice. He wasnt too bad.
