    What did he do wrong? He means we aren't doing switcharoos to the starting 13 because of concussion protocols. Ol mate keeps our team pretty settled and Levi could do big minutes at a pinch if need be.

    He'll probably be really good for us. Will be able to cover fullback, wing, centre, halves, hooker & lock. Might be a victim of versatility & have games where he may hardly get on the field, but he'll be useful when we need him.

    For my money I would run with size and muscle in the engine room first up , with which ever hooker just moving them around in calculated, premeditated pattern.

    8. Klemmer
    9. Levi
    10. Gavet
    11. Fitzgibbon
    12. Guerra
    13. Glasby
    14. Mann
    15. Ese ese
    16. D saf
    17. Sione

    Starting pack should be tough for softening up , which is why I have gone for Gavet over Esse/ ( still plenty of size , skills and they will be much better after the heat is gone from the game).
    Glasby will work hard and not go missing at lock, nor will he have to with Guerra and Fitz on either side to stiffen up D on either side.
    I have started Levi ahead of Mann only because of Manns versatility ( watched game 25 and he gave us grief and is a competitor who will contribute where ever he slots )
    Sione ( if he needs to be in the 17 ) offers more off the bench in short bursts either 2nd row or centre

    8. Klemmer
    9. Levi
    10. D.Saifiti
    11. Fitzgibbon
    12. Guerra
    13. Ese,ese
    14. Mann
    15.Glasby
    16. Gavet
    17. Sione / Barnett
    Personally I would go this way I think Klemmer would teach Daniel aggression so I would have them starting .
    Ese,ese likes playing lock and would give everything for 80 minutes .
    I would have Glasby and Gavet as reserve front rowers because last season and the one before it was at the back end of each half that we started to fall apart through lack of discipline and experience and Glasby and Gavet would give us that when needed the most especially in the last 15 minutes of the game.

    Nothing wrong with this as an option either - Great to have so many quality options available, with none really weakening the line up.

    G'day Ethan hope your doing well champion.

    Nice pack you have put up for the starting side, though i feel we would lose way to much go in the rotaion once Gavet and Glasby came on with no Saf or Klem on the field.
    Glasbys best 2 features are big motor and discipline, he wont provide the spark you need from the bench. Needs to be at lock to be effective for us.
    Klem and ese upfront with Dan and Gavet off the bench is my best rotation of the front row.

    88 may well be back josh2010, but he is correct.

    Compared to new signings Klem, Glasby and Gavet, the twins are behind them and need to really put in to make the bench, let alone starting 13.

    I'd have Dan well over Gavet at the moment personally, everyone loves picking him to peices but his averaged well over a 100 metres in a crap pack whilst Gavet often couldn't make a decent pack.

    Yes Gavets making all the right noises ATM but lets see how Dan goes know he doesn't have to carry our go forward.

    If we are going well for the next couple of years Psaulo could easily overtake Gavet, who for me has a pretty poor ceiling and if we are doing well is a 40 minute bench player.

    Dan is a beast he has been slow to get going the last couple of years due to injury and not being fit. But at the back end of the last two seasons he Is up there with the best. Hopefully he hits the ground running this year.

    Gavet brings us some much needed aggression and the kind of in game pump up that we have sorely been missing.

    Gavet started 17 out of 19 games last year. He got demoted because of contract tensions and they put him back when they realised how awful they were without him starting.

    Klemmer is our only outstanding middle forward.
    All the others seem like decent firstgraders - not quite rep standard.
    If I were backing any to step up to rep standard this year it would be the guys in their early 20s - Eseese and Dan - not they guys in their 30s - Gavet and Glasby.
    My feeling is that Eseese is on the verge of a breakout year. He was better than expected all last season and at his best at the end of the season, and from all reports is leading the way in the gym this off season.
    If Jake Saifiti ever gets an injury free run, he could come from the clouds and go past all of them - weirder things have happened.

    Hi 88 good to see you back mate hope you had a good holiday ...You could be right there too although I would still start Daniel with Klem but Gavet and Ese,ese of the bench maybe with Glasby at lock . I think Daniel plays better when he starts and as I said Klem would teach him aggression .
    Its a bit funny but I reckon Klem , Daniel , Glasby and Ese,ese will all go well but Gavet is the one I'm looking forward to watching playing the most and I'm not sure why .

    IMO in hi best games Jacob looked better than Dan but that was only a couple of times , not nearly consistant enough .

    Yeah I still reckon Dans got more runs on the board and is a better front rower, no issue with Gavet starting but you wont get the same output and too me his enforcer/aggression is debatable.

    I think Brown will use Gavet in a similar way he wanted to use Lillyman.
    He wants a no fuss experienced front rower for the 1st and last 10-15 minutes.
    And Dan and Ese will play longer minutes in the middle of games.
    Anyway thats what i think.

    Let's hope he goes better than Lillyman.
