No point in looking at a replacement for BK as there is none... might aswell use what we got as best we can.

I'm happy to answer any questions :D

Willow at 13 :doh: if that is who is our starting lock we are in strife.

Stewart is a better option and Wells along with Cuthbo need to step up.

Yeah, your right about Glenn Stewart... to be honest i totally forgot about him... hmm i might need some editing... i'll wait and see what others reckon.

I dare say cuthbo would get the nod ahead of styles.. from the limited PL i have watched styles has provided some good thrust off the bench and seems to be a player who could have that "X Factor"

Willow is a dead loss unfortunately, Matai might go OK at lock with a better forwards coach, as might Cuthbertson.

I can't see Monaghan, Dunley or Williamson in our team next year. We need a ball playing second rower greatly.

I will be interested to see if we blood some of the younger forwards. Cuthbertson and Ballin must be due to get a run.

I am slowly leaning towards Lyon at 5/8 with the late season form of Matai. If Lyon thinks he could handle it and wants to play there then he should be given a shot in the trials at least, Burns is a tough player who can do the job but his imaginative play doesn't go far beyond his right foot step and his kicking game is ineffective.

With the way things are if Lyon had a little success at 5/8 he could end up there in SOO with the lack of quality in that position at the moment.

One thing's for sure, there's a lot up in the air, some tough decisions could be made, if the coaching staff are willing to make them, recent history shows they won't.

The positioning of Lyon and what that means for Dunly, Ballin Burns, Mattai, Monas is sure to be the only real interesting thing that is tossed about by all & sundry during the off-season.

But at least for today i am boycotting this discussion as YAJCT makes no sense whatsoever. :p

Ok, reason for the changes...

1. Steve Bell is a Rep Centre and Steve Matai is on the improve and is about to become an international representative centre.

2. Jamie Lyon is a class above most players, and i've watched him.. he can play 5/8 and play it extremely well.

3. You were right about Glenn Stewart.. i'm a fan of his aswell and believe yes he should be locking the scrums next year.

4. Travis Burns needs to be in the side and will be just as efficient from the 9 as he was the 6.

5. Too early for styles.. hopefully cuthbo has improved since his last stint and can make a spot his own.

I should have called it a

I was unsure about the placement of Lyon all season, until the last few games.

I would have him at 6. With Burns possibly filling a Dunley role

Reasoning, I think we will be a better attacking side with Lyon at 5/8, he has more options in attack than Burns who is limited at this stage, and that may help Orford, and also Matais work from dummy half has been awesome lately, and with our forwards underperforming he was regularly getting us away from our line. He and Robbo also have a better combination

Also i think we are a better defensive team with Lyon at 6. Burns and Matai both have deficiences in their defence, but both try bloody hard. Basically i would have more faith in a Matai/Lyon combo than a Burns/Lyon combo defensively

01. Brett Stewart
02. Michael Robertson
03. Steve Bell
04. Steve Matai
05. Chris Hicks
06. Jamie Lyon
07. Matt Orford
08. Jason King
09. Matt Ballin

11. Steve Menzies
12. Anthony Watmough
13. Glenn Stewart

14. Travis Burns
15. Adam Cuthbertson
16. Mark Bryant
17. George Rose

Michael Monaghan has gone off to play halfback in England or something (although he has done a great job here, fromw hat I've seen, Ballin could do better and Monaghan doesn't exactly look happy unfortunately =/). Williamson and Dunley are kept in PL as depth because of their experience.

Same team as mine downie except for ballin > Mona's

Haven't seen Ballin play so can't comment but you guys seem to think he's a good thing.. so i look forward to seeing him

Well, if you consider that Witt and Cherry have been our halves for some time (with Halden coming off the bench I think), Ballin must be doing something right in attack :p

That said, I think Wiit is/was leading the try scoring list for PL.

The only full match I've seen Ballin play was the trial PL match against the Tigers. I remember him putting Styles through gaps to give him both of his tries in a period of about 5 minutes. He was the best on field in that game, in my opinion.
