Huh, Dave Taylor gets dropped for being overweight, yet Greg Eastwood is listed? Hopefully we have a leaner and fitter Eastwood this year.

Would like Stagg to play the 80 to help the rotation. perhaps he is not fully fit or something
He is coming back from a shoulder reco so they should ease him back.

Don't know if that's entirely true...

From what I have seen and heard of Eastwood's efforts in the offseason his position is well deserved, as for Taylor he has the talent but needs to earn his way back into the side, no repeats wanted of Carlaw.

We have a great side this year. Obviously we are going to miss our big forwards of years gone by but who says we can change our game and lean towards quailty off loads and quick play the balls.

BTW people don't be surprised when we run out in our white away strip, its been a choice made by the Broncos to help with the heat and as a result force the Panthers to play in their black jersey.

I also want to extend a big good luck to Reece Robinson, making his first grade debut, his been impressive so far in the trial series and I certainly hope that continues in first grade.

He showed signs of very good footwork and speed in the Redcliffe trial and was impressive in our trials as well so while his not the biggest winger he may have other areas to his advantage.

Smart idea. The cowboys did the same thing last year in the finals against the warriors

Speed / footwork with 92kg will pose plenty questions for the defense.
 
1. Don't realise how Robinson could've proved himself in a trial match or two more than Kemp impressing in three NRL games for us, 'less he's injured, and Hewitt also showing he's all class in the top grade? Not sold on this one, but happy to be proven wrong.

2. What the **** is the point of having Stagg on the bench?

3. GREAT to see Michaels in the centres and Hannant as one starting prop.

Not bad, overall. Give 'em hell.

1. I totally agree with you, I simply fear we will lose the talented speedsters Kemp & Davies because if we don't use them someone else will... How much influnce does Mundine have???

2. I have no problem with Stagg on the bench, he is lighter and faster this year, so with the new 10 interchange rule he will be able to inflict a little more damage late in each half, let the bigger guys wear them out and then bring on Marsh and Staggy to tear'em apart... he's also our option for replacing an injured back.

2. Agree completely
