Two wingers for starters, Miller for Rooney, as much as I liked him Korky would be out for Fifita, Wood and Randall are better players than Obst and Pauli Pauli has the potential to replace Amor.

Even so, some good players in that team, but I think the current team as a collective is better.
1/10

Not sure about Smith on the bench

Changing Kear is a massive call PT and I would keep Rooney over Miller.
I like Miller but I think Rooney had a top kicking game, better then we currently have by some distance.
With the quality of wingers we've currently got, it's a bit of a surprise to see Cockayne on there. Again, I thought he was ok but, he's nowhere near Johnstone, BJB and MCB.
Again, Korkidas was trinity through and through but, wouldnt make the 17 at present.

I'm a big Kear fan but Chester has done something special. I'd happily have them together.
Rooney and Miller was a hard call. I decided on Miller because Brough was already in for the kicking game.

Shows how far we've come in such a short time. Could easily have put Ashurst or Arona in.
Another year and we'd be adding Pauli.
I'm not sure about Blaymire over Grix either but he stays for now.

1. Blaymire - Jowitt (liked Blaymire and Grix but this kid has more potential)
2. Tadulala - Tom Johnstone JUST CAN'T BE ARGUED WITH
3. Domic
4. Demetriou - Tupou
5. Cockayne - BJB
6. Rooney - Miller
7. Brough
8. Korkidas - Fifita
9. Obst - Wood (last two seasons best Hooker we have had IMHO and much better than Randell)
10. Watene - England or Huby not bothered
11. Solomona - JUST CAN'T BE ARGUED WITH
12. Elllis - JUST CAN'T BE ARGUED WITH
13. Poching - JD

14. Tim Smith - I'll go with Hampshire because we have an enigmatic genius in Brough and ala Solomona one is enough.
15. Kirmond - fit version
16. Lauititti - to much like Solomona and any team only needs one - so Ashurst for me.
17. Amor - Pauli Pauli

Coach John Kear - Chester and JK as per 2017

Pretty much exactly what I'd go with. The only questions/ doubts I have are -
Rocky, not sure he's done enough yet even over Smith. If he carries on improving he'll be in for me next year. Also maybe Jowitt as well, which like you say is more a potential thing rather than a few seasons of quality. So it's a hard one, because I do/did really rate Blaymire and Grix has also been a real asset to the side since he moved back over and has been a key player in many wins. I thought at the time Blaymire was generally massively underrated by SL fans and pundits and was very good for us for a few seasons.

Got to admit leaving Ali out is a big call but you need an Ashurst type player in your team.

Personally, I wouldn't say Wood is a much better Hooker than Randall or even better per se. I actually like what Randall brings to the team and he's just a different type of hooker to Wood.More strong defensively and although not as small, elusive and quick over 20 meters as Wood, he's got plenty of pace to make breaks like we've seen and you can see why he's been used as lock in the NRL at times. I actually think as a pair in a side they complement each other imo. But rightly over his time here, Wood has hardly put a foot wrong, so gets the place. Whether he's better than Obst I'm with you, he's a better overall Hooker than Sam was and I was a big Obst fan.


Just thinking about this years team imo we've got 3 players that should be up for dream team recognition with Tupou, Johnstone & Fififta.

Maybe in future but Jowitt and Hampshire don't make our "All time Super League team" yet.
Jowitt hasn't even proved himself to be the best in our current team yet.

Tim Smith is one of the best players I’ve seen in a trinity shirt, just happens to be a clown off the field.
