Tsak
Gothruk
Finnian Left-3rd/Falco Right-4th

Sable
Kiwina
Rolth

Rear

This gives us an extra 5 foot space up front for the medium-sized PC to step into if necessary to get off a shot or close spell (color spray!) with Gothruk right behind to use his reach and combat reflexes for AoOs if the enemy tries to step up to that square instead. Rolth and Kiwina have plenty of movement to cross the whole party in one move action if the need to get ahead of the front rank for some reason.
