    Good point. Didn't even notice that.

    And Blair is missing who is apparently staying behind because he has just welcomed his second child.

    Great to see S'ua and Fai heading overseas. These two will be regular inclusions in the first grade squad this year along with Pearson and Arrow.

    I like the fact he didnt just turn up and get a go . Make him work for it , the boys have obviously worked hard in the off season and been rewarded .

  9. I don't mind the idea of leaving Sims behind, let him play big minutes in the trial against the Jets and give him some more time to settle in to Brisbane.

  10. Those are some interesting omissions.

    Blair will obviously come into the Round 1 side, but Korbin's omission can definitely be read into. I didn't think he was bad on Saturday and I'm sure he'll come into the squad at some point but right now he's below the pecking order and the club doesn't view him as a long term option. At least not compared to others who were named ahead of him.

    That last bench spot is going to be interesting. Pearson is headed over just for the experience, but there's a case for either Su'A or Fai getting that last spot. If I was to lean one way, I'd assume they'd be more interested in giving Su'A that experience since he's ahead of George but it's far from a near certainty.

    Also Su'A has versatility that George doesn't probably giving him an edge for the bench spot.

    Good mix of youth and experience in that side.
  13. It depends on the agenda really.

    With Benji's achilles injury it opens the door for a player like Su'A, especially in that game against Cronulla where having bigger bodies coming off the bench can be a plus.

    On the other hand, that front row position is wide open and this is something of an audition for Ofahengaue, Ese'ese, Arrow and Fai.

    I think Sims will be on the bench for round 1. This is a chance for Joe, Ese'ese and Arrow to put their hands up for the starting spot.
    The great thing is that Wayne is showing some faith in these young guys.

    Sims will be there round 1.
    The players picked ahead of him are being rewarded for a great off season.

    That mean only one spot either bench or starting side. So Arrow, Big joe and Herman Ese'ese fighting for final spot.

    My money is on Herman

    And wouldn't rule out a left field Sua selection

    I'd be going with something like:

    1. Boyd (c)
    2. Oates
    3. Roberts
    4. Kahu
    5. Mead
    6. Milford
    7. Hunt
    8. McGuire
    9. McCullough
    10. Joffa
    11. Sua
    12. Gillett
    13. Arrow

    14. Thaiday
    15. Fai
    16. TPJ
    17. Glenn

    Obviously Thaiday starts come the season proper but he is comign back from injury. I'd actually leave him out and give Ese'ese a run in his place.

    You reckon Fai is ahead of Arrow and Ofahengaue?
