    IMO I dont think he will have any trouble making the team I would have him starting with Dan.

    Wouldn't surprise me if Lillyman starts. He averaged 127m this year in a ****e team.
    Ese ese is great impact off the bench.
    Either is a good starting option. Great headache to have.

    How good is it to be arguing who will make the cut nice problem to have.

    Since I got serious about the Knights in 03 I don't think we've ever had legitimate competition for spots.

    Dan Saifiti had his best numbers in 2016 off the bench by a long way, and Jake was showing a lot of promise as an impact prop as well. If we have two props who can soak up the starting pressure and then throw the twins on to plough up the middle of the field, that could work.

    Be good for them to play less minutes as well, have all props doing 40 each for high impact would be great.

    Levi, Watson and Lamb running at a retreating defense with Ponga and co lurking on the inside is an exciting proposition

    Compared to our Round 1 side this season we'll have swapped Stockwell and Starling for Ese'Ese and Lillyman. Pretty massive upgrade.

    Awesome.
    I was a little worried it wouldn't happen.
    One more prop, one great outside back & that's an awesome team.
    if we get that pommy prop that'll do me for forwards.
    & Cronk or Maloney would be a bonus but not necessary.

    It's now 7 quality new signings for next year plus SKD signed mid year! The bad times are definitely over.

    This is a great pick up. He has been a workhorse for the Warriors. It’ll be great to watch Lillyman/the Saifiti’s/Ese’ese all churn out 100 metres for us. Prop rotation suddenly looks fantastic for the first time in years.

    We started 2017 very hopeful, Pythian full back, Mullen 5/8, Kostyjin hooker backup, lots of forwards in backup but alas came to nothing, injuries etc and we are done.. Lots of very good signings, more where they came from than what they might give.
    It's all about what you put on the paddock week after week and how the squad as a whole perform.
    We are looking good despite one or two positions, we will be competitive, next year 2019 even better
