    Not understanding any attraction to Brown. Coming off injury and averaged 68 minutes last season. Where is the upside in a much stronger pack with Paulo available this year, Alvaro having a great season last year and Terepo showing he could play big minutes too. His minutes are coming down this season.

    They won't come down mate, Brown is an animal! his full non injury games he averages around 57 but I wouldn't trust him again after last few years of knocks

    Not that much stronger IMO but Brown was injury affected last year which is where I see upside. If he misses trials though which is likely I'll probably rethink him

    With Bennett at Rabs anyone worried Murray gets moved between, lock and edge like Pangai was last year and doesn't lock down get the consistent minutes?

    @multiple.scoregasms wrote:It’s a matter of when, not if, teen sensation Bronson Xerri makes his NRL debut for Cronulla in 2019, according to new head coach John Morris.
    Morris doesn’t hesitate to nominate Xerri when asked who has impressed him since he initially took the reins from Shane Flanagan as interim coach in late December.

    “The kid who is jumping out of the box is Bronson Xerri,” Morris told AAP.

    After losing four of their starting back five — Valentine Holmes, Edrick Lee, Ricky Leutele and Jesse Ramien — the Sharks will be forced into a backline reshuffle.

    Matt Moylan will start the year at fullback and Josh Morris and Josh Dugan have locked down the centre roles, leaving Sosaia Feki, Aaron Gray, Sione Katoa and Xerri to compete for the two wing spots.

    I am also high on Xerri he may find it hard to get a start but will surely be first guy up. As WL said they wanted him playing last year but couldn't.

    Guilty! And for a high functioning alcoholic you have a tremendous memory cheer

    Everyone jokes about this sort of thing but I started to take a good look at my self the other week, took my boy to cricket trials and weren't allowed to watch. So went to seafront and into the pavillion, bar had lights on but no staff, i asked for a pint, they said they weren't open and I caused a massive fuss over not being allowed a swift cider or 2!

    Sad but funny now when i think back, so said fuck it ill have a few weeks off!

    Then 6 nations rolls around and I sunk 15 bottles of apples in a short stint, crying then joyous over the Welsh result!

    think i may have an issue Embarassed

    I quit both cigarettes and chuff nearly 15 years ago at the same time. Within 6 months I was giving the piss a decent nudge nearly every other night. For the last 10 years or so it's been 1 night a week, occasionally 2. The weight I'd put on got me motivated to cut right down, and then when I got to about 35 I was getting pretty bad hangovers. They certainly helped me not want to drink through the week.

    Good, I don't want to move him out!

    I'm pretty settled on the following currently

    Macca
    TPJ
    Murray, Gillett, Stimson
    Morgan, Munster
    Capewell, Hampton
    Tedesco, Edwards

    Not including my cheapies and rookie halves

    What do you think Hampton needs to be worth it? and what do you think he gets?

    I don't or rarely ever get hangovers. Getting better with age some would even say! Made a switch from larger to cider last few months as well for the additional vitamin C cheer

    Where’s the talk of a four forward bench? Will Smith will be there most likely.

    White Lightning mentioned it here:

    I went snooping somewhere at the time (one eyed eel I think) and found a lot of talk to back it up. Now I can't seem to find it again.

    I wanted to bring it up before but how are people not going with Smith or Cook? Rule number 1 has always been to pick smith, put the C on and forget. Cook now comes under the rule of course
