    Looks awesome mate I don't think too top heavy at all.

    You have one gun at centre (backrower) and one gun at WFP (man sauce) that's plenty. Your rookies have similar potential as mid rangers

    They scored 36 points in first half anf his only involvemnet in them was a lucky bounce from a kick he caught passed to BJ who sent the winger over for a try. He will be playing outside Austin and inside BJ both massive ball hogs. Papali the way to go on the left with Sezer and Crocker
    Cheers mate how about his minutes? He been on the whole game?

    Feeney with another try assist this time on the other side of the field this time to Mata'utai who stepped Waqa with the commentator dropping this gem "better step than Michael Jackson"

    If/when Mullen goes down injured this year Brock Lamb is going to be a brilliant mid season cash cow

    I know the Knights like Lamb but i think it depends on if they persist with Feeney at FB. If say Mamo moves there i think Feeney will be first cover in halves or backs.

    He made a few mistakes early but he has been brilliant since then

    You are right mate, tough to gauge his involvement defensively where his base stats will be coming from, disappointing he didn't get involved much as he is a very dangerous line runner

    Played whole first half. They pretty much switched the whole team at halftime. I seitched off just after ht don't know if he got back on.

    Soli looked pretty comfortable playing middle.Could be his spot this season...

    The guy who looked real good was Boyd but you worry he played big minutes just to get his fitness jump started and come the season he wont be needed for that big a stint.

    As posted before Hodgson if no bench hooker named is a must have, he is almost worth the risk even if one named. Right now i have Seggy/Peats but could easily swap any of them for Hodgson or Liccha

    Cheers mate, as soon as he settles he is going to be a weapon for the raiders, just tough to gauge their backline make up without fenno starting, TLT will reveal all!

    Austin didnt play tonight (my previous post might have been misleading) but Sezer stayed on the left and Williams on the right so cant see much changing and doubt there will be much link up. Overal though the forwards laid a great platform and the team look fit and fast

    Barba should have FB spot wrapped up after that great little run out from his own end. He's going to be gold this season

    I mentioned weeks back his avg playing 80 minutes is 56, I have also seriously been considering running Lichaa and Hodgson and using the Smith cash to get Tedesco in the WFB!

    Tedesco's defensive reads have been amazing and making some really big important tackles.
    He is a genuine gun

    Feeney would have scored around 30-35 tonight I would think.

    try, 2 TA, 2 line break assists

    They wont be fantasy options but Norman Foran combo looking very good, both playing both sides of the ruck just like the old days
