I'm quite hoping that Chessie will start the season's first game by selecting a team that has never let us down and understands what it means to play for Wakefield. Something along the lines of

Max Jowett
Ben J-Bishop
Reece Lyne
Bill Tupou
Tom Johnstone
Danny Brough
Ryan Hampshire
David Fafita
Kyle Wood
Craig Kopzac
Matty Ashurst
James Bachelor
Tinirau Arona

Kelepi Tanganoa
Jordan Crowther
Ryan Atkins
Chris Green

I suppose that looking at the players not in the first named team we have much greater strength in depth than for many years.

I`m hoping that he goes with his very best team, for me you are missing a few key players out there.

Chester has said it is nice to have a genuine ball playing 13 in the team in Westerman, which will allow him to play Arona as a middle man which is where he wants him to be.

Miller will start at 6 for me, would have Hampshire over Brough but not too sure he will start like that.

Walker I think is likely to be first choice at the back.

Would 100% also have Josh Wood on the bench, Wood is not an 80 minute hooker.

At the risk of offending a few on here I have to agree with you.

A couple of places are hard, I could see Hampshire at FB, Pitts being on the bench , maybe Tangata may get a bench spot. See what happens in Pre season games.

Ben J-Bishop

Much as I like Crowther, Batchelor and Hampshire you go for experience first. Why would you leave out Westerman? Ditto Miller. If it were not for the fact that when fit Tupou and Lyne are top notch I'd have Atkins at Centre but tbh it's hard to separate them. If these players don't do the job then you replace them with players like Hampshire but you at least start with those established layers in established positions.

Players like Crowther etc will get their chance but on day one you have to start with your very best players and see how it goes.
