For what it's worth, Bolton would have been my pick as the bench prop but in the grand scheme of things it doesn't make a huge difference. It isn't like we're leaving a Steve Price or Petero Civoniceiva out of the team.

No qualms with Cooper. An edge backrow has got to have a good understanding with his half and Cooper has been a big part of the Cowboys success in recent years. Kaufusi can consider himself unlucky, but the only way he would have got a look in was at the expense of Gillett where he could have combined with Cronk.

Don't get the Holmes love. He's a poor man's RTS. Weird. And I thought Thaiday & Oates deserved another go, but as a Broncos fan I'm thrilled.

I like Bolton but for the role that he is going to play I'm not too worried about Glasby. Better leg speed than Bolton and a better defender even though Bolton is clearly the better player. Won't be many minutes for him either way

Holmes was massive in the finals last year as a winger. He carries it back hard and makes plenty of metres. As a fullback he hasn't showed much but wing he was huge last year. Him, Bird and Feki got them off to massive headstarts. Runs it straight and hard off kicks.

Just saw Wallace's charge. No way he gets off that one. Especially at the NSWRL judiciary

So it was (according to dumbshit media) the Broncos-aligned selectors faults that Boyd was picked at fullback, is the Oates snubbing now some kind of retribution? There is no logic to dropping him.

Mate, Glasby will be expected to play plenty of minutes with the bench that we are likely to have.

I don't think it's going to make a huge difference, but Bolton has been close to his best form so far this season, while Glasby has been down on form.

Only logic is to get Slater and Holmes into the backline.

No chance. The two backrowers are going to play 80. Napa will play 45-50 Papalli probably the same if not more. McGuire 50-60. Than you have got to find the remaining minutes with Hess, Glasby Morgan and Wallace/Whoever they replace him with. He won't play much at all.

I personally don't get the calls for Sims. He started the season alright but I haven't been overly impressed by him other than that.

Runs for less than 90 meters a game and is generally ineffective.

Huge chance that he will be asked to play 30-40 minutes.
