So updated team for The:
1.
2. Lee
3. Lee
4. Aitken
5. Isaako
6. Milford
7. O'Sullivan
8. Bromwich
9. Graham
10. Wallace
11. Bromwich
12. Kaufusi
13. Gilbert

14. Nikorima
15. Nicholls
16. Lemuelu
17. Stone

18. Marshall-King
19. Collins
20. Bostock
21. Katoa
22. Jennings
23. Teague
24. Te Whare

It is serviceable.

at this stage Graham is signed as a development player so won't be able to play until round 11

I'm also pretty sure that at this stage Isaako will be their fullback

I know and if Isaako is their fullback, well The is going nowhere next year.

Should really refer to them as ‘the The’
No it's just 'The' You don't refer to us as The Brisbane or The Souths.

I would support them (as my 2nd team) if they were called Moreton Bay or Sunshine Coast, but just being called The Dolphins insults my intelligence and I'm refusing to support them. Also, Milford.

I really wish there were talk about them chasing Wighton, he is on a player option for next season, would be a massive Get. I hate that there's no media speculation about him like there would be a Broncos player, even if he is 0.1% chance of leaving the Raiders.

Let's do a hypothetical here.

1. Niu
6. ??
7. O'Sullivan
9. Graham
14. ??

If the Dolphins are smart, they would make a play at Tesi. He won't be expensive and he has the potential to be a gun fullback. It is definitely a risk worth taking when your other option is Isaako. Niu might well be gettable with Walsh coming in and then with Cobbo and Herbs as well.

If the Dolphins do it, they need a mature 6 and stopping short of Munster who they likely won't get, who would compliment the above spine?
It's a little late on the reply, but I still think Pearce for a year or two wouldn't of been a bad fit with Milford and O'Sullivan there for them.

Long term though I think the Dolphins should really look at assembling a tier 2 nation like Fiji, Lebanon or P.N.G spine and see if they can replicate the Queensland/Melbourne Big three with international players.

The NRL is so progressive. First non-binary team is an amazing step forward and so inclusive. Demi Lovato will be chuffed as

Milf to The is finally official. Will be great to hear about how he has always wanted to represent The. So I guess O'Sullivan and Milf will be The's inaugural halves pairing. Now if The can get a fullback and at least something of a backline threat, who knows, they might go alright.
I don't see Milf and O'Sullivan as a halves combo taking them very far.....looking at the likely team list (and with WB at the helm) they'll win a few, likely enough to keep them in front of the real strugglers like the Tigers, but top 8 feels a bridge too far to me.
But then again, what do I know?

Milf back to fullback last night was a good chance to see if he has changed at all and nope, no desire to run, no desire to compete and no desire to the 1 percenters. He has no speed and no evasiveness. It’s really sad to see. He could have been an all time great.

His defence on that Crichton try was disgusting. Yeah, he wasn’t stopping him but there was zero effort. He didn’t even put a hand out.

I'm going with either The Redcliffe or Redcliffe Thes.
