    With three hookers named in the 18, Berrigan on standby and Ta'ai possibly out, our final team make up is a bit uncertain.

    Locke was awesome at fullback against the Titans and Manu looked destructive in his return though he clearly lacked lateral movement and was shown up for 2 tries down his wing, the 3rd being Brown's fault.

    Our only first choice players missing are Ropati, Rapira, and arguably Fish. Without Rapira our props look a bit thin and that's our main weakness area in my opinion, particularly if Ta'ai doesn't play; we lose a lot of aggression and intensity.

    Thanks to our "centres" both being second rowers we make up a bit of size out wide though.

    Inu and Manu on the wings will be dangerous for the Knights, and Locke and Maloney running off Mateo's offloads could be the game breaker.

    Us by 12.

    ...and this season we have won every game Ukuma Ta'ai has played and lost every game he hasn't.

    Knights by 14, expecting a big game from Houston to further stake his Origin claims.

    Home factor gives it to the Knights, but would not be surprised if the Warriors gave them a touch-up here.

    This is a hard game to pick. I'll tip the Knights on the basis that it is a home game for them.

    Opposite sides of the field I'm pretty certain?

    Uate is marking Vatuvei.

    Will be good to watch, Vatuvei gave him a bit of a bath last time.

    Marvin and Marvin - Filipo and Karawana - to come in for the Knights is what I heard.

    yep- same here. Will be a good clash. It will be Inu v McManus. What's he (McManus) like under the high ball?

    One of the best leapers in the comp. Pretty much got selected for NSW for his ability to match Folau in the leaping stakes.

    It will be two great matchups on the wings, the size and strength of the two best wingers in the world on one side, and on the other side Inu and McManus trying to outleap eachother.
