Outside of RTS, Harris and Egan, I don't think anyone is certain, even with Harris there is conjecture in how and where he will play.

Every player will have to fulfill all the core functions of his position. That is why I think Hiku might be in doubt because of his defence. If our pack is getting metres do we need big Wings, who have been used to try and paper over cracks in metre gain.

Another thing is the standard of distribution/passing, until Egan this has been at an unacceptably low standard. If we can get guys like Jazz and Sironin distributing effectively both can be a bonus rather than just a fill in with their other skills. I believe that this was the key for the success last year. As a former Hooker hopefully Brown will be all over this.

On paper, and the game isn't played there, this squad is well balanced, a bit light in Hooker and Halves, but have the ability to compete against all teams. This is a very tight competition that is physically and mentally draining, injuries will be a factor, we dodged a bullet with BMM, hopefully that is a good sign.

18th man Jazz or JTB depending on game plan/oppostion.

How can you not have a talent like Paul Turner in your 17.
Katoa is a special player too. He is the complete package which includes great game smarts.
If they all perform consistently at or close to their best we easily make the top 4.
Good times people.
