Thewlis n longstaff should get ample game time and there will we will have competition for places too from others too.


Is Bullock injured or recovering from an op?

I see no J.Clark there, but with Magoulis out I can definately see him being in the 17.

Why Holmes at 13? I suppose if he played in his usual position it would mean a move for Currie and potentially Hughes.

I was going with the idea of all fully fit strongest 17.

Holmes at 13 would be similar to Harrison (minus size) ay 13 could be used to run the ball in buy also has the hands and brains to have moves and plays set around him. He hits gaps well so can see opportunities. It keeps Currie at second row with Hughes. I know that he has his knockers myself included but workrate and reliability are also needed in the team and he has that sprinkle a bit of Powelldust on and who knows

. I like longstaff and thewlis plus Dean and wrench but don't see the rush to get them in the team just because they are young and have been a shining light in what's been a dull few seasons. How will they compare with the "experianced" pros under a new regime if Powell can get our team playing and motivated will they stand out as much ? I think thewlis n longstaff would still be able to play and not see a drop in performance.

Magoulis, he has to earn his place in the team, not an experianced NRL player not really a big money signing a speculative on that could pay off, he could be starting loose with Holmes on the bench...

I was underwhelmed initially at the signings matautia and Harrison were 2 ones I was ok with, however IF Powell has the effect of improving players and getting the best out of the TEAM available then it is not as bad as I thought. An awful lot of the hope is based on the Powell effect, building a team, and improving key individuals then we could well be surprised, bullock Harrison are interesting pair Harrison has looked better than championship when I've seen him and is a very good speculative signing, I think that next season is when we will start to see the best of him now tho. How bullock turns out will be key I think if Powell can get him playing to his size and ability he will become our starting forward it's all .IFS and buts until the season starts and we see the 1st team selection.

Yes, I can see your logic there Dezzie.

We do seem to have decent players quite far down the playing roster which is good to see.
Lets hope Coops manages to stay injury free. The fact we could have Philbin, Bullock or Mulhern starting shows we've no 'Hill' type figure. I'm still disappointed we couldn't reach agreement to keep him.

Looking forward to the 1st match now, and not before time! Im usually chomping at the bit in early Jan, but last year just seemed to 'limp by'.
Things needed to be freshened up in the coaching department.
Still find it strange how sport appears to be different to most other professions where typically continuity is seen as a positive.

Toby King is out for a month at least. A leg injury I believe. I’d swap him for George King in a heartbeat.

I think George King has insufficient pace to play centre.

I don't like the idea of Holmes at 13 at all, with him and Matau'tia on the right together we suddenly have an aggressive attacking right side with i'm excited for.
Starting props for me udeally would be Cooper and Mulhern, with Philbin and Bullock off the bench, and Hopefully Rob Butler has gotten back in to shape and can find his pre-warrington form.
I think we'll see more of Ellis Robson aswell, i know he has his doubters but he hits hard in attack and defense and is aggressive. He's good cover for 2nd row and loose, having Longstaff, wrench etc fighting for a spot can only be a great thing for the whole team.
People can't relax and have to be on form as Powell actually drops underperforming players unlike Price.
And Powell has a proven track record to take players up a gear so i'm buzzing for this season, not been this hyped for a season in years and years :-)

Not sure how you can leave the captain out of the first 13 picks.
I’m very aware that Hughes wasn’t up to his 2019 form, but he had been hampered by injury.
However it looks like he is missing another pre season.
In hindsight we have now, I would add another captain or vice captain in his absence.

[b][quote="rubber duckie"]Not sure how you can leave the captain out of the first 13 picks.

I think that this was the point of the thread. Yes interesting to see who's in our 13/17 with a fully fit squad but additionally would Hughes get into that match day squad and I'm being kind here as you'd 'shirley' want your captain in the 13 and one of the first names on the team sheet?
