  1. Gutho will be back round 3 I heard

    That’s a pretty good side
    Wentys team is a strong side too
    A lot of depth at parramatta this year
    Should be aiming at top 4

    Looks like Cam King has the inside running

  2. I know it’s a trial, but round one Taka needs to play centre and Hayne should be on the wing. Kaysa should start and King can be an interchange

    • I’d love to see Taka stay in second row and get hammered each week. I can’t stand the bloke. Parra are looking good on paper. The comp is always good when Parra are up there I recon.

  3. Parramatta round 1 side should be

    1: B French
    2: J Hoffman
    3: M Jennings
    4: J Hayne
    5: K Avau’a
    6: C Norman
    7: M Moses
    8: T Mannah C
    9: C King
