Likely Dylan Walker or Koroisau, unless they sign someone new

slater def a lock as an early season NPR if he comes in at rookie price!flasSId* wrote:Similar thoughts mate, and Slater at Rookie is probably a lock as well. Even though I DO NOT WANT TO PICK HIM he will probably be an NPR at the least. I will be interested to see how many get conned by Stewart at Rookie price, allthough having Slater as an option will probably save a few from that perennial mistake.
By the way, did I see that you got engaged or did I dream it? Punching above ya weight there mate, the Mrs is gorgeous!

You'd think so. McWillrick shaping up to take Halataus place on the bench maybe and rotate with Ballin? Unless they use Liddle off the bench (would be my preference).
Isn't 2nd tier cap issues the only reason Liddle didn't get a run this year?
I am not considering Ballin at this stage. Even if he gets a start round 1, I just don't trust his knees anymore.
I have similar doubts about Slater, but he'll probably end up too tempting too resists.
CTR and WFB will be where the best cheapies are this year I think. Hayne/Slater/RTS would be a very affordable back 3 with great potential. Fill the last 2 spots with 2 promising rookies, and upgrade to Munster/Tedesco later in the season.
Whare is cheap, and I think there is another centre who'll be cheap who's name escapes me right now. Hurrell and Idris will also both be somewhat affordable too relative to their potential output.

flasSId* wrote:Yep, Liddle was due to 2nd tier issues. Ballin/Liddle would be my preferred combination personally. I guess we don't need a "Halatau" on the bench with Ballin in the side anyway as he can slot into Lock if a re-shuffle is required. Mind you, Halatau could also cover Centre. Not sure if McWillrick can?
Ballin to tackle his guts (and knees) out and then inject Liddle each side of half time hopefully for the Tigers sake.
Shaun Lane? What has happened to make him an option?
Couldn't get a run at 2 clubs last year.
