Not too shabby, Pats should be higher thoughI'll give it a crack.
6) St Pats
Unless Peters have a stack of imports not sure where the smokiness is coming from. 1sts lost every game, the 2nds lost to Ash 4ths and the 10's had 1 team and didn't even contest scrums. Hope for the sake of AIC rugby they do pick their game up though.
They will be as good defensively. The 9 and 10 next year will be much better defensively. As a team they will be as good defensively, and attack wise, they will probably be stronger, with a better 10 who will drive the team around the park and a better kicking game.
Who will be 9 and 10? Back 3 should be the same as last year. Nick Baker will move to 8 I'd imagine. Not sure on the tight 5, will all be new faces. Other year 11's I can see in the team will be Maxi Streathern and Will Andreas in the back row. 13?
I’d expect Matt Mitchell to be the 9, Harry Whitten to be the 10, both Second XV this year.
Wings will be Dwayne Ludwick and Hunter Dreghorn, both back from this year’s First XV, same with Floyd Aubrey back at 15.
Centres will probably be Hayden Lammon at 12 (Qld U15 rep in both league and union this year) and Josh Billing (First XV this year until he did an ACL in Round 1 v SLC).
I think Baker will probably play at 8, locks should be Lachy Laffer (First XV this year) and John Spencer.
Darcy Hammond will be one of the front rowers, the other two spots are up for grabs, as are the flankers although I wouldn’t be too surprised if Baker stays at 6 for team balance with Maxi S having a shot at 8.[/quot
