    With Kingy now gone for the season i believe that Georgey will step up for his absence and proove to Des that hes worth a contract ! Im not sure how Hoppas injury may go ? hes been abit on and off with his hammy since the start of the year, and hopefully matais injury isnt to serious either. So with the remaining players we have, i hope this would be the team that Des heads into the finals with, with the exception of no injuries.

    01.Stewart
    02.Robertson
    03.Matai
    04.Lyon
    05. (The winger position could go to either Wolfman or Hoppa) Hard.
    06.Foran
    07.DCE
    08.Kite
    09.Ballin
    10.Rose
    11.Watmough
    12.Galuvou
    13.Stewart

    14.Buhrer (Hasnt got alot of game time recently, dont know why ?)
    15.Rodney
    16.Williams
    17.Robinson (I see him more of a front rower than Mauro, he works hard, he runs hard and tackles tackles tackles.

    Very close, imo.
    I'd start with Rodney instead of Joe who I'd keep as a replacement front rower. Then I'd have Lussick in the 17 for Robinson. Mauro and Robertson would be 18 & 19-men - needed in the finals squad.
    If Hoppa is fit he'd stay - he is terrific under the bombs, but we don't lose anything in attack by having Wolfman.

    In my opinion Robbos ahead of wolfie in the pecking order. Lussick and Robinson are very much alike, both work hard in defence and make the metres that they should be making when on the field !

    This is the team Dessie will probably go with if there are no more injuries other than King, and the others are all fit. After a while you begin to read Des's team selections like an open book.

    1. B. Stewart
    2. M. Robertson
    3. J. Lyon
    4. S. Matai
    5. W. Hopoate
    6. K. Foran
    7. DCE
    8. G. Rose
    9. M. Ballin
    10. B. Kite
    11. A. Watmough
    12. J. Galuvao
    13. G. Stewart
    14. T. Williams
    15. J. Buhrer
    16. S. Rodney
    17. V. Mauro
    18. D.Lussick

      Kite, Watmough and Rodney need to step up the most imo, in the absence of Kingy

      With a view to the big games ahead Mauro will be in ahead of Robinson & Lussick simply on the score of experience (that is my prediction anyhow).

      Like everyone else this year I reckon Joe has been great but I reckon he plays his best footy off the bench when that early sting is out of the game. Despite being old he still has great leg speed & really punches at the line. In the first 20 mins its much tighter for forwards and less of an impact can be made by runners - so I would start with Mauro or Lussick, they are strong but a bit less impact/leg speed hitting the line than Joe in my opinion- keep Joe as our 'energy' off the bench.

      And to be honest these days bench forwards who come on fresh & fire are just as important as starters.

      Robbo is a better finisher than Wolfman and also safer hands under the high ball. Wolfman is better at making meters on a return kick...hard decision

      Robbo for sure!!!

      Wolfman and Robbo can both score tries and finish well, BUT Robbo saves them as well, which Wolfman doesn't do very well.

      Anyone know when the Wolfman is due back?

      Hopefully also Robbo can overcome his concussion soon.

      Perfect Foward line-up, maybe Rodney in the run on with Smokin Joe as impact?

      You're nuts if you think Wolfman's defence is on par with that of Robbo's.

      Can you remind me of an awesome trysaver Robbo has pulled off? Wolf has the weakness of coming in off the wing and that is it

      I'm not taking about 'an awesome try saving tackle', I'm talking about being in the right position defensively, catching bombs, and reading the play almost constantly. Wolfman is no doubt a better sprinter and Robbo doesn't hold a candle up to him in pace, but I'd prefer the Wangman's security over Wolfman's runs.

      i like oldfield and think he will go on to good things, and for his experience he is doing a good job filling in, but missing Robbo has been very noticeable in the last few weeks, just those little things he does, always right place, right time, it may only be one or two noticeable things per game, but its the stuff you don't really notice on first glance that proves we need him. cant wait until he's back for the finals, fresh and hungry, the little break will do him good, same with wolfy, if we stay injury free next few rounds, i daresay we'll have the freshest legs in many positions coming into the finals. king is a big loss no doubt, especially in the big games, but great chance now for someone to make their mark and step up. im excited.
