It won’t be Oates it will be Selwyn if Coates was to get dropped and I think you’ll find that Palasia gets dropped and Riki will be starting or even Glenn might be back and there’s no chance he doesn’t start (sadly)

Not so confident now that Haas is out. Lodge and Gamble will be welcomed back with party poppers and champagne.

I'm going for something a touch crazy. Just because it hasn't been tried yet

1. Isaako
2. Coates
3. Farnworth
4. Arthars
5. Mead
6. Kelly
7. Gamble
8. Glenn
9. Pangai jr
10. Turpin(still dummy half, but he wouldn't play 80)
11. Paliasa
12. Riki
13. Lodge
14. Hetherington
15. Flegler
16. Robati
17. Piakura

Robati, Glenn, Turpin and Hetherington become mobile props. Flegler covers TPJ or Lodge. Piakura covers Riki or Paliasa.

P.S 😆 I highly doubt anybody would remotely consider this. I was just going for originality

How that Palasia guy makes anyone’s team after that performance is beyond me. He was dreadful.

Straight swap for him and Riki (Riki is shit too but better then him). Lodge if he is here for haas and Asiata to start at lock.

1. isaako
2. Mead
3. Staggs / arthars
4. Farnsworth
5. Cobbo (let’s blood him now. The season is done and dusted)
6. Gamble
7. Kelly
8. lodge
9. Turpin
10. Kennedy
11. TPJ
12. Riki
13. Asiata
14. Bullemore
15. Robati
16. Herthrington
17. Fleglar

The general consensus on here a lot of the time is don't rush players, let them play ISC for one or more seasons but then plenty of people pick Cobbo and Piakura.

I will say now neither have shown enough of their craft to be playing NRL. I have watched all their ISC games in full- some good things- Cobbo ability to beat tackles and explode off the back from behind the halves has been excellent and Piakura has defended well and tied in well when under pressure- with one good game of running v Souths.

Cobbo hasn't had single try assist or had to make a tackle all year- Wynnum's defence is so good. He's just running around like a school kid on the oval making metres and beating tackles. He has to develop other skills first.

Then the kids leave because they're too impatient to wait their chance.

The battle of the Brisbane Broncos and the Broncos you ordered from wish, who will win?

But which is which?

Genuine question - would you have said Walsh was ready to play NRL prior to his debut?
