Time for you couch coaches to have your say once again.

This time it's Grand Final week, we've made the big dance, everyone is fit and healthy.

Who would you trust most, to handle the jandle, and bring home our first ever premiership victory.

Everyone gets 17 votes max. Please use up your full 17 to make it more complete.

Then the top 17 players, by the number of individual votes, go into the final team (and get shuffled as best as is possible to fit them into their preferred positions).

The list was taken off the Wikipedia page as it is today, so hopefully I haven't left anyone out.

Happy voting.

From the early voting it looks like we've got 12 shoe in starters. But the other 5 spots are still very much up for grabs...

Lisone is on the same as Gubb now.

I also think that your team is squeued because we don't have a right winger who will attract sufficient votes a cross the board to cement a spot.
Lolohea is definitely in the 17 somewhere, but like you say, with the lack of another obvious right winger, he's mr fix it.

Your top 18. Hard to know what to do with Thomas Leuluai when he has 26 votes. Are people voting him as their to preferred five-eight or do we have to play him on the bench because Jeff Robson makes the top 18? With Tuimoala Lolohea on 27 does he get his preferred half role? You also have 3 centres to find places for with Solomone Kata, Konrad Hurrell and Blake Ayshford making the cut...

Just don't play him at all ;)

This was my team based on my selections.

1. Roger Tuivasa-Sheck
2. Fusitua
3. Hurrell
4. Ayshford
5. Lolohea
6. Robson
7. Shaun Johnson

8. Lillyman
9. Luke
10. Mutts
11. Bodene
12. Hoff
13. Mannering

14. Lisone
15. Vete
16. Lauitiiti
17. Manu

Robson provides hooker cover, Lolohea halves/fullback cover and Manu outside back cover. TL can captain the NSWarriors or something and showcase that outstanding leadership the club seems to rate him so highly for.

I think that team means all 8 forwards get picked, 5 starting and 3 on the bench. So the lowest ranked of the rest is Ayshford who drops to 18th man.

Our big three spine players get their spots.

This leaves us with Manu, Hurrell, Kata and Lolohea as our outside backs, pushing either Robson or TL to the bench. But seeing as Robson is a specialist 7 and TL is more dummy half who can cover multiple positions I'd expect him to start of the bench.

My Team to get us the big win...

1. RTS
2. Wright
3. Lolohea
4. Ayshford
5. Manu
6. Shaun Johnson
7. Robson

8. Lillyman
9. Luke
10. Matulino
11. Thompson
12. Hoffman
13. Mannering

14. Leuluai
15. Vete
16. Lauitiiti
17. Sao

There's plenty of defence power right across that line up, with more than enough strike power to win a footy game..

Lauitiiti to be kept on ice until the big game where he goes out with a bang...

Thing is Blake Ayshford can play in the forwards.

Anyway. Going to start a thread where people can vote based on positions. Really interested to see how a forum 17 stacks up against our actual starting 17 come Round 1...
