    They weren't talking about you Pedge. They were talkin about Peatsy :)

    If true he still sees Kaysa as a bench rake and not a starter, with his injury history probably not a bad idea to bring him in slowly.

    Hoping Peats won't be out too long. At least we have some very good fill ins. Pritchard looked good when he came on to replace Peats. DeGois is a toiler with plenty of experience, and King was a star until injured. Bennett wanted him at Newcastle. Be very interesting to see how he'd go at NRL level now.

    The pecking order for starting hooker is probably the same as previously:
    Peats > De Gois > Pricthard/King

    Pritchard has been re-signed, so - on account of his age - we obviously see potential there. But at the moment it's only as a bench option, rather than a starter. De Gois would still be the back-up to Peats when injured, as he was with reasonable success last season.

    I'm not sure why we signed King and have four hookers in our top squad? Maybe he came very cheap, or is on a Wenty contract? Good to have additional back up with top level experience, and see what comes of King's career this season as he recovers through the injury cobwebs.

    I'd say we'll only sign one of Peats/De Gois/King into our top 25 next season. Maybe King is our 2017 cover to play alongside Pritchard, if Peats attracts insane contract offers from elsewhere and De Gois retires or heads to England?

    I think he will miss Friday, still a good effort if he is back the week after.

    De gois playing - I reckon means Kaysa gets more game time. Perhaps 45-de gois - 35 Kaysa.

    Peats is a great hooker but de gois is also great. He may not have the same aggressive style or quite as sharp out of dummy half but his tackling technique is superior ( one of best in game ). He milks the penalty better if markers aren't square and is more of a leadership style player.

    Gordon said on the radio this morning that Peats turned up the morning recovery saying he would be playing.

    Gordon didn't say whether he would or not but did say he was tough and arrogant about an injury keeping him from playing.

    There was an interview with him of the Matty Johns Show, he said he was told he will be out for three weeks but he will be back in two

    I see the forum stalker is back, which is kinda creepy

    Mustn't be much happening in your life if you have to rely on stalking anonymous users on an internet forum to get your jollies

    Sad really

    Lol.

    Replying to comments on an Internet forum is stalking now?

    Seems there's another word you don't know the meaning of.

    I'd say starting order is correct, but Pritchard is ahead of IDG overall because of what he offers from bench late in game. Also I think the King signing maybe a pressure builder on Peats to either perform or accept an offer less than what we would have otherwise had to offer
