SEA EAGLES NRL TEAM: Brett Stewart, Michael Robertson, Steve Bell, Steve Matai, Chris Hicks, Travis Burns, Matt Orford ©, Jason King, Michael Monaghan, Brent Kite, Steve Menzies, Anthony Watmough, Luke Williamson
Interchange: Shayne Dunley, Kylie Leuluai, Mark Bryant, George Rose

Looks like no Kennedy but I'm still pretty happy if that's the team that takes the field.

This is this weeks Match ups. The M or S next to the line is who I think is the better player. I've got 7 Manlys and 6 Storms. So I guess we should expect a close game ;)

I would question some of those but good enough Byso

There are a few i feel are even - King and Bell, Turner and Hicks, and Kafousi and King.

And mata funnily enough the storm's 2 starting props both struggle to make 100m regularly, Kafousi only making 100m twice in his last 8 games, averaging 80

Matchups like that are useless. It is how the team performs as a whole that counts. If the pack together makes 700/800m etc it is more important than which player does. Halves, hookers, fullbacks etc have a much bigger play than the rest and there is also the ability to limit mistakes, have composure, kick for field position and the x factor that ultimately decides success - plus who is playing at home.

Burns is better than Hill. Sharper, fitter, better defender. We can win this if Matai doesn't stuff up and our fowards play like last Saturday.
