    The reality is that Hiku, Gavet and probably Satae will be there.

    Must win game by some points too. Ladder is becoming congested, and the negative f/a stands out.

    To me, Satae has upside that can't be ignored. A rotation of Paasi, Afoa, Gavet and Satae is inexperienced but at least offers something about it.

    1. RTS
    2. Fus
    3. Beale
    4. Kata
    5. Maumalo
    6. Green
    7. SJ
    8. Afoa
    9. Luke
    10. Paasi
    11. Mannering
    12. Harris
    13. Blair

    14. Tevaga/Lawton
    15. Satae
    16. Papalii/Sao (not convinced Papalii is NRL standard of late)
    17. Gavet

    Strongest side for some weeks, perhaps all year, regardless. No excuses now. Manly are hard to gauge, bpvery hot and cold, though more likely cold away from Brookie.

    Interesting game, a lot will depend on how the origin players back up, and whether our middle can hold up

    Is Hiku that player that coach will persist with when all fans are begging to drop him? There's one every year!

    Looks like the temperature could get up to double digits for this game. But also, probably not.

    Holy moly cannot believe Lane is playing. He was in a bad bad way last week, worse than what Tohu was when he copped his knock

    Hopefully the return of our stars will lift the confidence of the side in the same way it boosts fans.

    This is a very balanced team named. Clearly having an ISP game during the Bye offered the Coaches a really good look at their options, this year it seems we have been brave enough to make changes are big losses in first grade.

    The most noticeable change is the return of Sao...making the extended bench is better than where he was on the naughty chair. We will need him going forward...he has a grit...no frills...middle forward toughness that is lacking at the moment.

    Satae cements a place, I am happy with that, his defence has been solid enough for first grade, the other parts of the game dont bother me with greenhorns...the fancy bits can come later...not being a liability is all I care about...not surprising then that the Storm are after him.

    I really hope Lawton goes well, his dummy half passes are not perfect..but about a thousand times better than Jazz.

    Having Johnson back should shore up our defence by a long way.

    Johnson playing on the right and marking up against Hodkinson. Hopefully SJ takes advantage of the match-up. Te Marie Martin targeted him a couple times last week but the Cows didn’t seem to get to ball to him enough. Surely we won’t make the same mistake
