As much as I'd like to agree with you.....Coates is tearing it up at Melb. Didn't he score 4 tries in a game a few weeks back. He can't be discounted that easily....
He's doing **** all to score those tries too. Good on him for falling over the try line for "less" money at Melbourne.

He’s been okay but his defensive decision making is still terrible as is his work out of their own end. He scored 4 tries in a game where is team won 70-4. Aroon Woods would’ve managed at least a double on the wing that night.

Yer look i tend to agree with everyone else's summation of Coates, i think his stats dont tell the whole story. I look at the game last night against Penrith, when the going get's tough, which it will in origin he just isn't ready and good enough. He constantly gets driven back from runs in his own end, still struggles with catching the high ball and cant tackle that well.

I still wouldn't go Cobbo tho.

1. Ponga
2. Oates
3. Gagai
4. Holmes
5. Hammer

Cobbo is just a better player then Coates, much better in defence and just seems like more of a heads up player.

Coates just seems to lack aggression to use his big body to it's full advantage.

Yeah I think Cobbo is the better winger all round... easily... but let's hope Billy looks at the try scoring numbers only and goes with the Vic.

Cobbo in the squad but not playing is the best result for us.

1. Ponga/Walsh
2. Oates
3. Holmes
4. Hammer
5. Cobbo
6. Munster
7. Cherry-Evans (really through lack of standout option)
8. Jensen
9. Grant
10. Cotter
11. Capewell
12. Nanai
13. Carrigan

14. Hunt
15. Flegler

How can you bold the word form, then pick Hammer who is coming off the bench.

Obviously centre is a massive issue, insert any name there. Gagai is out, Hammer is the incumbent and the only other option really, is Opacic. So if you makes you feel better, feel free to put Opacic in there.

Isn't Gagai due back soon? His form this year has been better.

Sure and if he is playing, he is obviously in but he isn't playing so by default, we have to scrape someone off the bottom of the barrel.

Sprojy, Jensen has been good value for money but he hasn’t been starting prop for QLD good. You’ve gone full Huge on this one.

His stats would suggest otherwise and this is the form team and not who will or should be there.

no doubt he’s playing well but, just as an example, Big Papa has better stats than Jensen.

Hehe yeah but I am not going to waste my time watching Raiders games...or pretty much anyone other than Brisbane or whatever teams are playing between AFL games or the Giro starting.

defiantly feel more confident with turbo and Latrell likely out for Game 1. The series they have not had these 2 in the team we have looked far more likely.

Im guessing there team will likely look like

1. Teddy
2. Addo Carr
3. Crichton
4. Staggs
5. To'o
6. Luai
7. Clearly
8. Paulo
9. Cook
10. Jurbo
11. Martin
12. Olakuata
13. Yeo

14. Hynes
15. Hass
16. D. Saifitit
17. Crichton

I think Turbo's injury was just a cork... looked like he picked it up when Staggs and Reynolds tackled him on a kick chase

He was pretty dismissive about it when asked after the game......certainly was making out it was no big deal.
