    Radley reminds me a fair bit of chris Flannery, who was one on my favourites in the early nought years
    I said this in another thread but whilst Chrichton hitting some form at lock is awesome it's really not for the balance of our best 17. For the balance of our best 17 Crichton really needs to be a 2nd rower but he just hasn't produced in that position this year and it puts him in a 3-way battle with Butcher & Radley for 2 lock spots.

    There's less upside to Aubusson but you know what you're going to get from him and when our right egde was humming at the business end of the season it was Aubusson who was shifted there 1 week before finals so I'd suggest they're looking to reignite that combo.

    I think Radley may end up being a victim of his versatility and end up sliding into that utility role. It's definitely an interesting situation.

      Sorry if its a stupid question but would Butcher be considered a prop or a second rower? He and Sitili have both been really impressive this year. Sitili is maybe more aggressive but Butcher is a real footballer. I just hope the poor guy stops getting compared to Gallen. Metres yes but steroids and all of the rest no.

        I think he looks a little too small for a traditional prop, I prefer him roaming and utilising his offloading skills rather than be a battering ram ala sam moa. But I trust the coaching hierarchy will know the best use of his talents.

            Have I missed something? Thought Angus has played second row this year.

              He has been coming off the bench as a lock forward the last 2 weeks.

                Horses for courses the way Trent is selecting.

                What he is playing is if someone gets injured, we have adequate seasoned players to fill the void. Players getting valuable field time in a range of positions.

                  12. Crichton - I think he's a starter when he finds the form
                  13. Radley

                  14. Maubs
                  15. Liu
                  16. Tetevano
                  17. Sitili - I think 4 forwards with Maubs as the utility is our strongest option. Maubs and Crichton could also switch on this basis so that we're putting on Crichton, Sitili and Tetevano as soon as the opposition looks a bit tired. It works!!

                  Cant ever see Aubo being left out of the top 17

                        It's not that I don't rate Tets. But rather that the other two are just offering so much that they'll be hard to leave out.
                        Yep, Tetevano has been a little disappointing.

                          On the right wing it appears it's a shootout between BMoz and Halldog, with H having the inside running. In the forwards, with JWH and SST capable of playing big minutes, Trent might be tempted to play both Butch and Sitili ahead of Tets, especially if they play well in the next couple of weeks.

                            As much as I am a huge Farmer Silly fan, I think itís between Sitilli and Butcher atm, Iíd lean towards Sitilli, Butcher and Maubs play the same style of footy, you need the X factor of a Sitilli on the bench, if all fit itís a decent situation to be in, get on Nth Sydney for the premiership

                              I already took the Easts/Bears double at the start of the year. Injuries and rep games have caused both teams to drop games, but hopefully both now will go on a run.

                              Thracian, do you know why the Bears aren't playing the undercard at Gosford this Sunday? They are playing at NSO at the same time which seems crazy.

                                One thing is certain, we are in a great position to go back to back. Our depth is impressive.
