I personally would still replace Everingham with Goodwin as he seems like a quicker and more solid version with the added bonus of a top quality back up for goal kicking

I like Goodwin but he is a little mistake prone. Everingham is a freak, if he is not scoring he is assisting. He also plays well above his weight. Never thought he would last but he is special talent. http://forums.rleague.com/images/icons/icon6.png

Everingham did get that ball inside for Champion to score and Goodwin dropped one when in the clear.

I think you are right about Everingham.He is a potential rep player---he is reliable & has good speed.He is deceptive in size at 92 kgs & 189 cms tall---an excellent build for wing.
Goodwin is behind him,IMO!

I think you are right doyen, unless Reynolds is injured and a kicker is required, Everingham should be selected.

We have kickers in Issac & Merritt so Goodwin is not necessary.

I think Goodwin is better.

I wouldn't be surprise if Everingham miss out, he didn't really stand out like the others in the CS.

An injury free Lima is a certainty, and don't be surprised to see Tom Burgess pop his head up on the team list.....he was easily ahead of George in the first trial ( IMO )..... I am hoping to see Asotasi, G B, Lima and TB as the prop rotation and Sam sent out wider to take care of SBW

Only reason i wouldn't have Lima is because he hasn't played yet this year, Tom Burgess could make the bench but i just feel like George would make it after the charity shield but i think it could be either Lowe or Tom on the bench.

Lima will be in the side if fit, I hope Sam Burgess plays in the 2nd row for Thursday nights game.

Sam's a waste of time gunghoing his way out wide!!
Can do far more damage softening up the opposition in the engine room!!

Where has LIMA BEAN!!! Asleep in his pod!

I disagree just have a look in the CS for example Tyrell and George Burgess had more of a impact on the game, in some parts he went missing during the game now go back to last year in the finals against the Raiders Sam had more of a role to play out wide. Sam is not a prop IMO he is more suited to the 2nd row or lock position

Maybe swap G Burgess and Tyrell for the early softening up period.........Burgess is bigger.

Everytime i look at it i change it, so many options....this is so good, sure put him their...or you could put 10 others their, me if i was the coach i would throw a spanner in the works and put Justin Hunt their

I was about to put George in the starting line up but seeing Tyrell has more 1st grade exp. Then George that's the reason why I went with that choice but I would like to see Tom in there to but I like Maguire will leave him out of the side for this one.

By the way I'm hearing the teams for Thursday nights game will be named on Monday

Sam's more likely to get injured too in the backrow;jumping here,there & everywhere like a locust on speed.He tends to
hurl himself about the place with no respect for his body,especially in defence---the guy's over 115 kgs,is big,tough & hard, & IMO,is better served in the real tight stuff where he can more easily smash the opposition.He needs to play "smarter" in his own interest!!
Sam is prone to injury & when he is quiet I am suspicious that he may be carrying a niggle of some sort!
