Mamo
Jerry
Leroy
Turner
Darnell
Gaskell
Rankin
Seb
Kruise
Walne
Symonds
Taai
Hinchy

AOB
Wakeman
Roberts
Bruno/Walne/Clough/Smith/Mellor/Dickinson

Hard to pick a team to provide maximum quality for 80min, I'd maybe put Taai on the bench and start Roberts to give us a bit more impact from the bench.

I hope Brough comes back refreshed for us, hes been a shadow if himself the last 2 years.

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?


It's a tough league, so I'm hoping if we are injury free we should comfortably be in the top 8.
Rick Stone has kept to his word so far about gradually improving us so I guess I'm expecting the same.
I'll be happy with us challenging for top 4 in the final few games of the 8's AND not losing out in the CC to a out of form lower league opposition.

If we can keep relatively injury free are the key words, some other teams were badly hit by injuries last year with yours just about being the worst yet you still managed 8th spot, Wakey by comparison were lucky with injuries which maybe reflects why we did so well, so if you are lucky to keep your key players fit then perhaps 4th is not unrealistic, as for the cup there are two many imponderables so fingers crossed and hope your your lucks in is how I always look at it.

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!



He may want to play in the half's but he is not a half back.Full back is his best position but whilst Mamo is fit its unlikely he will get a game there.
Thats why i think he will end up playing on the left wing.All his first team games in Australia for Wests were on the left wing.

I did hear last week that Leroy would not be fit until halfway through the season and that his injury was worse than Bruno's from last season

:shock: out till may time?! that would be a big blow, already! him and mcgillvary with that link up. Last i read stone said it will take most of the off season till he is right... which you would think means he will be right for the start of the season! no rush even if he misses a few weeks of the start we have a ready replacement in gaskell/wood/mellor but no where near as good

saw him in the gym doing light weights with his knee still supported though
