Seve can't be too far away from dropping out of the team. Can't get away with doing nothing every game for too much longer.

Yep. I thought Lee showed a bit in pre-season too, so Seve's selection continues to surprise me.

Surely Vete/Schonig comes in for NAS, not Jacks.

Based on Frank's words on Sports Day radio, our squad make-up moving forward will likely include less big guys and more smaller, quicker, more mobile players. Perhaps Lee will snag a bench spot, or he will start with Seve on the bench (which we have done before and probably offers more impact).

Thought that might happen ...new rules help the little guys play

Sucks to the clubs who have been buying up big guys for years now won’t need them as much

Including us

Anyone else feel that Bellamy might pull a fast one and change the halves here by moving Jacks to start at halfback?

Could potentially mean Hughes moves back to fullback allowing Papenhuyzen to do what he did last year albeit now under the new rules.

I'd like to think we give Lee a go here too. He's quick and would suit an up-pace game. I think even if Bellamy chooses to go with a smaller pack here they should be able to handle the Rabbitohs up front.

Craig hasn't messed around. Some pretty big changes to our line-up on the cards for this game. I hope the game plan itself has been overhauled also.

Got some inside info on team line up changes yourhero ?

Don't expect you to announce them here...but sounds like Craig and players are trying to adapt quickly.

I think that actually has quite a lot of merit - bring a fresh Paps on after 20

Mattpoet was thinking the same thing re club debut. Could be more than one club debut and if Schonig and / or Lewis play would be NRL debut.

NAS is already out. Still a chance that Lee replaces Seve at centre and that either Tino and / or Max drop out.

Can't believe we didn't drop Hughes or Papenhuyzen so Jacks could play.
