    For sure they have the playing talent.
    The Broncos? I doubt it, the forward pack is relatively weak.

    No way, I'm expecting us to miss the 8. Backline is good, but the forwards are below par and the depth is worrying.

Though David has played a fair bit of fullback and centres in lower grades as well and has a lot more potential.

    I actually rate Rodney if he can get back to his early career form at the Panthers. Will add a lot of depth to our backrow once he gets back near full fitness. Reckon he will be in and out of squad depending on injuries. But I was worried if Mauro or Waerea-Hargreaves had to play that role this season. We wont lose much when Rodney gets a few games, as we would with the others. Though I don't think he will never be a starting forward, will always be at his best off the bench.
    Rodney was always average, can't see him playing anything but a bit part role for Manly. Given the money they are supposedly paying for Williams he will have to be somewhere in the mix. Would be disappointed for Robbo if he was moved to the centres, hes a good natural tryscorer playing on the wing, nothing else.

    Word is the NRL are going to de-list Matua.

    He really should bring a restraint of trade case - he'd win it easy.

    Yeh really apart from be a douchebag he's done nothing wrong, unlike Greg Bird (if hes found guilty in court) and Todd Carney he hasnt broken any laws etc...
    Obviously hes breached his contract with the Bulldogs and thats their call to sack him, but if a team (lets say Newcastle or Canberra or the Tigers) wanted to sign him then there shouldnt be a problem with that.

    But, say if the Forwards do fire they will be strong. Like, they strong fowards in:

    * Joel Clinton
    * Corey Parker
    * Ashton Sims (or has he left the club...?)
    * David Stagg
    * Sam Thaiday

    It may not be their best forward back lately, but it's still really strong.

    And if worse comes to worse, Falou would do an alright job in the back row.

    Forgive my ignorance, but what's he done this time?

    EDIT: Matua I mean.
    Cricket Web's 2013/14 Premier League Tipping Champion

    - As featured in The Independent.

    "The committee discussed the issue of illegal bowling actions, and believed that there are a number of bowlers currently employing suspect actions in international cricket, and that the ICC's reporting and testing procedures are not adequately scrutinising these bowlers."
    - Even the ICC's own official press release thinks things must change

    Id guess our starting pack will look like
    8 Joel Clinton
    9 Aaron Gorrell
    10 Nick Kenny
    11 Corey Parker
    12 Sam Thaiday
    13 Lagi Setu
    One the bench
    14 Ashton Sims
    15 David Stagg
    16 Ben Te'o

    It's decent, but one of the poorest out of the so called top sides. Lockyer will keep us in and win plenty of games, but I see us finishing something around 6-10

        miraculously with the ball still caught in his scrotal area! Out!

    **** off, was gun towards the end of the year and the world cup. Reckon he'll play 15+ matches next season and we'll probably win at least half of them, mainly because of him.

    Brisbane to keep developing gun backs from the ranks and keep buying mediocre forwards.

    Webcke, Civinoceva, Tallis and Thorn was too good to be true.
    Stedders' Supported XI (in batting order)
    NJ Kruger, *SM Katich, LA Carseldine, MEK Hussey, Mohammad Ashraful, NT Broom, AA Noffke, +Mushfiqur Rahim, Mashrafe Mortaza, DE Bollinger, WAP Mendis.

    Never claimed anything otherwise at any stage. I never even mentioned the Roosters.

    Typical League fan though, one of the main reasons I've slowed out of following league in recent years.
