Jarome Luai looks very sharp and is a sound POD option in the 5/8 position.
Brian To’o had lots of carries and tackle breaks. He will be a premium CTW option this year, I’m sure of that.
Obviously in a bid to kickstart their stuttering attack, Parra have switched Moses and Matto to the left side with Brown and Lane now lining up on the right. The left looks super sharp, the right not so much.
Momirovski will likely start as the right side centre with Charlie Staines and from what I saw I think it’s fair to say the left side attack for the Panthers will dominate early.
That’s good news for Luai, To’o and Crichton. They’ll hit a right post in attack a lot for left side shifts.
Jahrome Hughes looked very good. He was very busy, probing and playing very direct. I wasn’t considering him before the trial, but now I am.
There’s a serious watch on Harry Grant’s knee injury. If he’s out, Brandon Smith comes right into calculations. Some vintage Cheese in the trial reminded us he was supposed to be Cam Smith’s successor, before a bloke called Harry jumped the queue.
Cam Munster was quiet for the Storm. Melbourne’s right wing spot is intriguing.
It’s most likely Reimis Smith gets the role, but Dean Ieremia and Connelly Lumelume are pressing their claims.
Bradman Best looked dangerous, but wait until Ponga’s back.
