How close to the team announced on Saturday night will this team be?

I am tipping O'Neill to be in the main team and possibly Gordon Willoughby or one of the Old timer wingers to be included instead of Bouie.

I also think that Rex Mossop or Roy Bull will make the team ahead of Carroll and Roberts.

Wally O'Connell and one or two other old timers will also get a gong I reckon.

I agree with the team, except for Carroll, i'd cut him for O'Neill with Roy Bull coming onto the bench.

as for the last bench spot?? probably Crusher, Mossop or Ward

i think Kosef/fulton could cover the halves, with Menzies covering the backline, thats why i didn't play a utility on the bench

I am with you on O'Neill but I had to go with the votes. Ward was behind five Props in that poll, believe it or not.
