I picked a best 22 rather than a balanced 22.  There are so many genuine contenders that I'm not really sure whether my team below reflects my best 22 but it is my best 25.

That's about as good of a starting 22 as we can muster at the moment.

There may be argy bargy about some on the fringe, but actually that it the best thing right now, general quality and consistency of those on the fringe has greatly increased so we are just settling for the last few spots, they actually have to perform!

I'd probably start Cerra and have Doc on the bench, simply because Doc can be given some quick instructions and go anywhere on the ground to fix an issue, and be trusted to make a difference. I think Doc staying fit and healthy he will become our Mr Fixit over the next couple of seasons, a bit like Sidebottom for the Filth.

I can comprehend there was a lot of anti-ruck duo discussion on this site, and this survey shows 85% picked a ruck duo, with associated assertions of players being overpaid while underperforming.

So it seems like the noise was coming from a very very noisy minority.

As has been mentioned previously, i picked 2 rucks and 2 key forwards (and Jack)....and i regret it.
Similar to DJC, i picked a best 22, rather than a balanced 22.

So be careful projecting your own perceptions onto other people. ;)

I have not been one of those LP, except for one match, the last match of the year, when Pitto looked like he needed a rest, looked sore and indeed he did miss that dead-rubber match in any case.

This is the end of year best 22, it's subject to change next season. I really like Cincotta and it was very hard for me to omit him. He played how many games in a row? He's our best option on smaller defenders with his speed and medium height imo.

In fact Cincotta in for Boyd. The latter played well against Brisbane, has very good speed and disposal by foot, but needs to be more consistent and do it more in games. He does have something, needs to be more fitter to impact more. But Cincotta has those qualities and a much better defensive game. He just dropped off later, probably one of the many who were tired and perhaps even sore too.
