now the squad numbers have been given out thought id pick my first 17

some hard choices! which is good, could easily swap a few round


mamo

mcgillvary
cudjoe
turner (though im yet to be convinced by him)
murphy (mcintosh too)

leeming
brough
rankin (gaskell can also slot in)

symonds (taai)
hinchcliffe
ferguson (roberts/lawrence)

ikahihifo
wakeman

bench-

roberts
taai
walne (clough)
obrien




where are people thinking taai will play, will he push up into the props as cant see a need for him in the second row..

not even mentioned mellor or smith!! or new signing roche !

decent squad. top 6 if we have luck with injuries and then who knows what can happen in the super 8's..

the new half back combination needs to work though

Finally a very difficult group to pick from!

Mamo
Jerry
Leroy
Turner
Murphy
Rankin
Brough
Seb
Leeming
Ta'ai
Bruno
Ferguson
Hinchcliffe

Wakeman, Walne, Roberts, O'Brien.

I'm still unsure on the use of Brough. Not been the same since losing his captaincy. I feel he let the team down with his suspensions and dummy spitting last season.. Class player but is he losing his touch!?
Sadly topped it off with disgracing the internationals and again letting his team down.
I hope he can get back on the ball and see his career out at the Giants in style..
But to build we can't afford guaranteed spots for players.

Cracking squad this year though.

i think brough is having less of an influence now, our attack is not great and the halves are supposed to create but i dont think brough does... maybe working with rankin will help

lets hope he has one last big hurrah for us next season! no bans or arguing with refs!

1. Mamo
2. Jerry
3. Cudjoe
4. Turner
5. McIntosh
6. Gaskell
7. Brough (hope its Broughs last season)
8. Seb
9. Leeming
10. Walne
11. Symonds (has a lot to prove for me. Another injury early on and I would release him)
12. Lawrence
13. Hinchliffe

14. O Brien
15. Ukuma Taai
16. Wakeman
17. Roberts

I'm not a fan of fergy personally and Murphy has been gradually getting slower each season.

I still think we're a prop short too!

Given that this year you get a decent run with minimal injuries as against last season, where do you realistically hope/expect to finish this season?

Half back not Jordan Rankin's best position.
If Mamo stays fit think he will play on the wing.

Rankin was very specific in the piece on him on the website...he is in the halves this season so that gives you 2 from 3.....the arguments for Brough being a shoe in are diminishing in my opinion....even his goalkicking was very average last year and I'm getting fed up of his blow ups....hopefully he will be back to his best and be tantrum free! This could be though the indication that maybe we are looking at an alternative half back pairing. Is it possible Cudjoe may not be starting the season and Gaskell will be in the centre? Still a fair time to wait and speculate!

Distinct possibility seeing as Leroy is still wearing strapping on his leg.
