    Kenny-Dowell’s spot is looking increasingly shaky. If Toa lined up against him he’d look a good 5 years older than what he is.

    Funnily, as far as I know To'a has had 3 games of wing in his life - the 2 trials and this game. Last year he either played fullback or centre.

    Will be interesting to see what happens towards the end of the season if Star keeps on this trajectory, I could be wrong but I reckon SKD has lost a yard of pace.

    Although I'm still more of a Ponga to fullback fan no point changing a winning team, Herm in for the injured Dsaf

    It might actually get boring this year regarding the weekly 'Your Team' thread if we keep winning lol

    Krusty, This is what I have been intimating for a while now holding Guerra back for the first rotation is a master stroke by Brownie, unlike last year there are no Lapses when the "run on players" rotate.

    This move is the best for the teams continuity, even though for my money Guerra is one of our best Second rowers he is far more valuable to the team off the bench.

    Bradman Best is still bigger, stronger, faster and a better defender than Star - but Star does have that Uate like 0 to 100 in 2 steps burst of speed from a standing start. That's a pretty handy skill to have.

    Star needs a lot more runs on the board then a 10m run for a try in a trial and a solid game in cup on the wing to knock off a international winger thats in the top 5 of trys scored in history and has time and again been a huge help in getting us out of chit from our own end.

    This just made me think about our spine, id happily bet $500 on our 1 6 7 9 being the quickest in the comp combined.
    Anyone think of a teams spine that could knock ours off in a 4x100 relay? Souths are the closest imo with Cook and Johnson but our halves are fast guys over 60m

    Reckon Morgan, Te Maire Martin & Granville would be pretty fast. Kahu would slow them down a bit though.

    Granville has slowed down a bit but compared to other hookers he'd still be one of the quicker ones. **** player though.

    Morgan would beat anyone of the guys named over 100 easily.

    Well maybe it's different now but Granville used to be a speedster. Was a fullback turned zippy hooker in his first few years out of QLD Cup.

    Granville has lost a yard or two of pace and gone downhill a lot these past couple years. One of Greens favourites so won’t face the chop anytime soon.

    How old is Bradman now?

    What side is he playing in? SG Ball or Flegg?
