    Just from that conversation, what's your (most likely) NSW Cup side [MENTION=243]Billy[/MENTION]?

    I suspect we will find there are a lot of guys trying out for a spot in NSW cup this year, but i'll have a guess at;

    Donovan
    Ross (because he will be seen as a firstgrade wing prospect)
    Pat Mat
    Chanel
    Robson
    Cook
    Pearsall
    Koopu
    Freeman
    Mataora
    Fitzgibbon
    Jacob Saifiti
    Yates

    Bhana
    Baker
    Daniel Saifiti
    Josh King
    James Taylor
    Braidie Smith

    I think they are trying to find a spot for him, and they probably will.

    Bryce Donovan isn't bad but I don't know if he's good enough for NSW Cup.

    I quite liked the look of Pythian last year. I'd give him another crack instead.

    Donovan is training with firstgrade and was the biggest improver in the beep test so far. I think he was well up there in the last test. He also has the chance to get great coaching from Potter, which can only improve him as a fullback.
    I think he is proving to be like James McManus in 2007 - not the most talented guy in the squad, but making up for that by working his arse off.
    As a player he is fearless. He gets smashed by going for balls when only a crazy person would do it, and gets back up to do it again.

    Phythian is in the part time squad I hope. He can play in the halves as well as fullback and is a really elusive runner. Lantry did wonders with young guys last year, and Donovan and Phythian are both guys who can improve as much as Holland, Tuha and Mamo did last year.

    Talking of Honeti Tuha and training, the photo from his Parra training session is insane.
    He looks like he has been in the gym doing arm and shoulder reps for the last 3 months.

    Any chance you can give us some updates from the trial games tonight [MENTION=243]Billy[/MENTION]? Interested to see how Bhana goes, now that Tapine is gone.

    The wife's thrown a spanner in the works and wants to go to Mrs Browns boys! :fist:

    I think we fielded a strong first half and second string second half. Does anyone know If wenty did the same or had the same squad all game?

    2 or 4 points in it, so it's nothing drastic. Second string team looked ordinary as anything though.
