    With KPritchard likely to be out and Tepai gone for a week, there will be some changes to the 17 for Round 4 against the premiers. Have a go at picking early what you think BA will do.

    My pick is:

    1. French
    2. Semi
    3. Jennings
    4. Taka
    5. Hoffman
    6. Gutho
    7. Norman
    8. Matagi
    9. Brown
    10. Mannah
    11. Manu
    12. Gower
    13. Scott

    14. Robson
    15. Alvaro
    16. Windscreens (unless Vave is deemed match fit)
    17. FPritchard

    16. King

    Yebbity yebbitar. Though I'd reckon Taka might start from the bench.

    I think Robson may be picked at 9.

    We are in trouble if Brown is picked at 9.

    So am I right that apart from Souths (Damian Cook) that coaches don't carry a specialist hooker on the bench ?

    Seems that they have shifted towards a utility or just 4 forwards ?

    I'll give the club away if Brown plays as the first choice dummy half next week.

    My thought exactly on Taka to the second row and putting Auva'a in the 3/4

    Do we bring him on if we are winning to make the game more interesting for neutral supporters? He can't tackle...

    Why the hell are people putting Nathan Brown at hooker after the display on Friday?

    Are they thinking of the ex dragons player and now knights coach, or are they just stupid merkins?

    Would Sam Gorman be a chance at 9?

    I'm slightly interested in seeing Brown playing first choice hooker next week just to see if people do follow through with outlandish statements

    Either way they should be slapped around the chops in the same way that Trent Barrett was.

    He'd be two chances. He's not even on an NRL contract. Brown would play hooker before him.

    A question for Forty 20 I guess but have the Eels actually had a single training session at ANZ yet?

    I'm all for any move the gets Taka out of defending on the right side of the field. Even a shitty, pedestrian attack like the Titans was able to expose Taka like Portuguese chicken.
