It's only a game ...
As the NRL currently has 17 teams, can you select your best possible 17 man squad with just one player from each team? Guidelines: not selecting players completely out of position plus selecting a standard bench (one utility, one backrower and two props).

This exercise has conundrums. For example are there any Dragons players, other than Hunt, worthy of selection? If Hunt's most suitable position is 14, how can Hynes or Ponga fit into the team? Similarly, are there any Tigers players, other than Api, worthy of selection? The Storm have the best five eighth & the best hooker in the NRL - who to omit, Munster or Grant?

In my team I've selected Hynes over Cleary because I think he has a better running game. I also pondered over these selections - Tapine or Young (Raiders), Kikau or Addo-Carr (Dogs), Tabuai-Fidow or Kaufusi (Dolphins), Carrigan or Haas (Broncos) & Faásuamaleau or Fifita (Titans).
  1. Tedesco (Roosters)
  2. Holmes (Cowboys)
  3. Trbojevic T. (Sea Eagles)
  4. Mitchell (Rabbitohs)
  5. Addo-Carr (Dogs)
  6. Munster (Storm)
  7. Hynes (Sharks)
  8. Haas (Broncos)
  9. Koroisau (Tigers)
  10. Campbell-Gillard (Eels)
  11. Kaufusi (Dolphins)
  12. Young (Raiders)
  13. Yeo (Panthers)
  14. Hunt (Dragons)
  15. Fifita D. (Titans)
  16. Saifiti D. (Knights)
  17. Fonua-Blake (Warriors)
It will be interesting to see your selections. To help, here is a pool of players from each club. You may wish to consider other players as well.

Broncos - Haas, Carrigan, Capewell
Bulldogs - Burton, Addo-Carr, Kikau
Cowboys - Holmes, Taumalolo, Nanai
Dolphins - Kaufusi, Bromwichs, Tabuai-Fidow
Dragons - Hunt, Ravalawa, Bird
Eels - Paulo, Campell-Gillard, Gutherson
Knights - Ponga, Fritzell, Saifitis, Gagai
Panthers - Cleary, Yeo, Martin, Fisher-Harris
Rabbitohs - Mitchell, Murray, Cook, Graham
Raiders - Wighton, Tapine, Young
Roosters - Tedesco, Manu, Crighton
Sea Eagles - Trbojevic (T), Olakau'atu, Cherry-Evans
Sharks - Hynes, Nikora, Katoa
Storm - Munster, Grant, Olam
Titans - Fifita (D), Faásuamaleaui, Brimson
Warriors - Fonua-Blake, Curran, Johnson
West Tigers - Koroisau, Papali'i, Klemmer

Think you nailed it. Only change I'd make would be Tapine on the bench and Fafita to backrow for Young.

Good fun idea and i like your team

I would play around with the knights and raiders and put Tyson Frizell in at 12 and put Tapine on the Bench for Saifiti.
