Graham for me.
Me too unfortunately

He is lock #3 and in a full healthy squad we only need Cam and Dale.

WILLIAMS- we are a young team who shat the bed in the finals last yr.Experience will count in Coaches eyes for a return series.The Nut less experienced sure, but bigger,and less errors as well than Williams.
Could be him, looked like he was outside top 17 to start season (although so was big Tommy). Williams one of our best forwards just a few season ago which was quickly forgotten by handling issues before and after. But he could def secure his spot if he can tidy up.

Currently error+penalty per minutes
  1. Tracey 0.0375
  2. Hynes 0.0316
  3. Williams 0.0228
  4. Hunt 0.0224
  5. McInnes 0.0222
  6. BHU 0.0203
  7. Wilton 0.0181
  8. Finucane 0.0177
  9. Katoa 0.0170
  10. Ramien 0.170
  11. Hazelton 0.0167
  12. Trindall 0.0156
Without numbers but to round out top 20: Ronnie, Moylan, Brailey, Graham, Kennedy, Rudolf, Nikora, Talakai

Not accounting for touches or circumstances but comparable positions are probably semi-comparable.
Does support criticism of Williams, Hunt and McInnes - maybe we are a touch harsh on Wilton but still I think we all agree we'd love it to improve slightly from him

I think you're all dreaming if you think Wade Graham is not going to be in our top 17 when all are fit.

Yes, I agree he's not what he once was, but I just can't see Fitz dropping him. Ever.

I think when everyone is fit we'll see this pack and bench:

Rudolf
Brailey
BHU
Wilton
Nikora
Finucane

McInnes
Kafusi
Graham
Hunt

Williams and Hazleton miss out unfortunately and I certainly like both of these players.

No Kaufusi??? He’s been very good since he’s been shifted to the starting role. Please tell me you only just forgot him.
Haha I knew I forgot someone. Kaufusi definitely is in. Then it leaves one spot for Williams/Hazleton depending on match ups. Whether we need to be bigger or more mobile.

This is definitely a conversation of what it should be, rather than what I think it will be. Dropping Graham at the pointy end will be a big call, and I agree I don't think Fitz will do it. It's also a hypothetical world where everyone is fit, which this year has been very unlikely.

Maybe Williams instead of Graham. I can't see that happening, though.
