Clearly shows Westerman is our 13 then with Jax covering McShane at 9.

Not sure that Massey would be our starting prop.
With his lack of size and aggression, I reckon LR will regard him as back up, and will be used from the bench at best.
With regard to Milner to SR, we seem to have quite a few who IMO would be chosen before Adz, unless LR has seen something special from him in pre-season that shows why he was wanted in the NRL😂

I dont think Milner will be our starting back rower either but it gives him a good chance of been on bench with him been able to cover any position it pack.

Powell loved massey but Radford might not feel the same, i think he'd prefer a more aggressive style of prop.

I see Westerman as Millingtons replacement, ball playing prop.

Massey is an essential cog . Does alot of the hard work what goes unnoticed.

LF is used in many cases as a ball handling prop. Joe has always had exceptional ball handling skills & now he’s put a bit more timber on, that’s a great role for him.

I'd expect Watts and Massey as starting props with Matagi offering some hard running off the bench. Westerman is nailed on at 13 for me and my backrow would be Edwards with Sutcliffe or Blair depending on form. I suppose Milner has been asked to play backrow as it's highly unlikely he'll get in at 9 or 13 but he'd still be my 4th choice there if that, unless there's some mad idea to play Sutcliffe at centre which isn't where we want him at all imo. At least with so much cover in backrow it leaves Griffin, Smith and Hepi as depth at prop. Maybe we'll finally see a year at Cas that isn't completely spoiled by injuries

A Big aggressive prop and a Decent scrum half away from a side what could go all the way.
