    I reckon this is a really good take WD. Dearden is a great example too. There was a plethora of couch coaches writing him off saying he wasn't going to be an NRL player after he struggled as a young half in a struggling team. Anyone who had seen the work this kid put in, and his ability coming through juniors and Qcup knew what potential he had and the parts of his game that would eventually translate, and the Cowboys are now the beneficiaries of that. He's only going to get better as well.

    Do you think Sexton has those same qualities and if so, what is required to help him make the step up?

    I say blood our players. What have we got to lose honestly. I'd rather watch them lose than "so called professionals" pretending to play.

    I couldn't help but think of Taylor and Rankin when I read this. Elgey too.

    I’d have to say overall I’m happy cause 1. Clark not at hooker, 2. Proctor not in the side, 3. some debutants and players dropped. But wtf Tanah has trained at hooker all year and then you put him at 6, why not just keep Turner there. And how does Marzhew deserve to be dropped?

    Swap Herbert for Marzhew and I could live with this team for the rest of the season. Herbert is not 1st grade standard

    agreed, Marzhew brings so much effort and impact to attack and deserves a spot

    Looks like there is a god haha just don't let us get flogged this week. I do like Sami in the centers for Kelly he needs a wake up call. Id even chuck marzhew on the bench instead of turner and have him run wild in the middle at the end of a half for Tino and run wild just cause what else is there to lose
