name the 21 man squad assuming tpj and Oates resign
Resign, or re-sign?
I thought it’s a 30 man squad?
FMD...the 2019 side has hit 2 major stumbling blocks already!!
My 17 + an 18th man:
4. Bird (c?)
5. Isaako (c?)
6. Milf (c?)
7. SOS/ Paix/ Boyd? (up for grabs)
10. Lodge (c?)
11. Gillet (c)
12. Su'a/ Fifita
13. TPJ/ Joffa with Su'a a smokie
15. TPJ/ Joffa
Unless TPJ can play JT13 minutes for the entirety of the season I would move him to the bench and use him in the prop rotation with Joffa playing big mins as the stat machine. Joffa never seems to tire when he's out there, and is ripe for a breakout year. Su'a might be able to play at lock which would allow Fifita to start, but I doubt that happens.
Isaako and Boyd could very well switch positions if Isaako develops a passing game in the off season.
We need to go with two co-captains. Bird looks good in theory as he's got the competitive grit about him, but I see potential in Lodge, Isaako, and Milf when it comes to leadership. Joffa and TPJ could also be in the running here.
My team for 2019
1. D. Boyd/ Isakko
5. Isakko/ D. Boyd
7. T. Boyd/ O’Sullivan
I have Kahu and Glenn leaving the club but if they stay still ain’t in my top 17 and as for bird I’m unsure of his future so I’ve left him out but if he stays, he will be in the top 17 somewhere.
Needs more Maranta
Bring back the future immortal Minto.
17 Carrigan ( Turpin if we want a hooker interchange )
15 Turpin/Sullivan/ utility role
Not yet. A lot would depend on trial for tbf.
My prediction of our line up for round 1.
17 Pangai Junior
If Bennett is still our coach for 2019 I'd say that this will be bang on barring any pre season injuries and the Kahu/Glenn rumours are correct. You would hope that Niko either improves dramatically in the pre season or SOS pushes him out during the year and they swap roles. McGuire at lock again will drive me to drink but hopefully someone sees some sense and moves him back to prop.
Nothing worse than a header that has spelling errors and a lack of grammar. I might as well hang out on Facebook because the two are becoming very similar.
The squad may look something like this:
I see you are including the typical Bennett final-year-of-contract dud signings.
Those are totally out of left field but as you said, there will be a couple of new guys around the place.
18th man Fifita
This is a mixture between the side I believe will be next year and the side that I want to see.
