    Many teams with a game in hand, but we are up there.
    Looking at teams with a game in hand, probably we are 4th.

    Damo I tend to agree with your assumptions on Host. At this point in time there is no evidence to suggest that Host is being treated any better or worse than any of the other youngsters. He has been injured a couple of times already throughout this season so he has had a disrupted season to date.


    The initial statement suggested he was not going to be considered in Mary’s top 21 – I would suggest that has been disproven given he’s been named in the 21 and has made it onto the bench.


    I also assume that initially Luciano was preferred as the next in line given the couple of chances he has had on the bench and the extended game time (at least in comparison to the others on the bench) he has played. I think though that LL has proven he still needs work.


    All of these guys are training with the NRL team and are familiar with the same structures, defence etc. So there should be no excuse for them not to be killing it at the ISP level. I haven’t watched many ISP games but if I am to go by the comments of the posters in here, it would seem that they are up and down week by week. Sounds like they still have some way to go to be consistent enough to be stepping up to the big time.

    I agree 100%. It's odd really, considering the individual achievements of our forwards this year.

    Exactly Belta. Almost all of our forwards have proven to be standouts in the league - Sims, Vaughn, Frizzell, JDB all getting picked for origin. Graham for England. The only 2 are the bench players - LAM and Lats - both of whom have not taken a step backward and are proving themselves week in week out (to the point where LAM is in demand from other clubs). Competition for these spots are tough - you would expect the ISP players to be putting in week in week out and challenging them.
