    Has the makings of a strong side - although I thought last years team looked strong at first too. Vickings will be a big challenge first up. Hopefully that all the talk of Thorn's focus on defence shows up on the field.

    It'll be good to see Hamish Stewart & Caleb Timu get some time.

    Biggest questions will be how the youngsters like Hockings, Wright & Scott-Young step up & which CFS will turn up.

    4 of those backs aren't renowned defenders, so yeah will require a bit improvement, but it's needed. il be happy if they only improve their defensive technique and nothing else this season

    Great depth for this competition making NRC stronger with the experience of new recruits to the comp should we lose some to Wallabies duties

    Let's hope big Brad Thorn coaches them to a win this week.

    It is important for him, moving forward in the professional coaching ranks to have a successful team.

    Bond Uni won’t be hosting a QLD Country NRC semi-final, QRU dictate where the finals matches are held and are apparently leaning towards Ballymore

    Toowoomba apparently an option too but, yes, Ballymore is the likely option

    Richie Arnold is looking the goods, I believe. Has excellent ball skills, seems to love the tough stuff, and most importantly really looks to be enjoying himself out on the pitch. Don't think he is far behind Rory atm.

    Congrats to Queensland Country on a magnificent year.

    Tongan Thor and Daugunu were easily my best forward/best back combo in a team full of players who excelled.

    lets hope Brad Thorns magic rubs over on the Queensland Reds in 2018

    Nothing wrong with your picks SouthernX - but why stop there.

    For mine Paia’aua was the most influential guy on the field most games I saw. He really does seem to have found his groove.

    And very keen to see Timu turn out in Red next year. There is plenty to like about guys like Naisarani, Valetini & Dempsey but I wonder if Timu might not just be the pick of them.

    Must say I like the look of Blythe too. I know he got pulled up a couple of times yesterday for a couple of penalties. But he looks a real goer.
