How does it make sense? How much fullback has Hoppa played? How much nrl has he played recently. Hunt means only one change.Thou Norman would be a better fullback and Kelly would probably do just as well as norman at 5/8 who has been a tad dissapointing

How much NRL has Hunt played recently??

I will throw in another option having read a few different reports and that is Pewharanghi into the centres.

I'd probably prefer Vai in the centres personally....wasn't that impressed with Api last season but I admittedly have seen no NSW Cup this year. That said if Morgs travelled with the side to Townsville he's the obvious in.

Or maybe his GPS was interfered with and he ended up driving to Bowraville Oval (that's in QLD) and was surprised to find his mates weren't there? Surely that's even more likely.

He was int the dressing room before the cowboys game. Was back up in case one of the backs got injured in the warm up.

Typical nfi post.

Cheers mate but it's already been covered.

The game was delayed here (indefinitely and at the last minute) due to a rain delay at the Asian Golf Tour. I got sick of waiting for the coverage to start so I watched the start of the Bulldogs-Knights match. When I finally checked the Eels/Asian golfers, the game had already kicked off.

So I didn't see Morgan in the change room. In light of that there was nothing wrong with my assessment. Morgan has a history of being injury prone and he's good enough that other clubs will be interested, and probably earning enough that we would be open to offers.

Hayne carried the injury for about 78 minutes the other night. Obviously effected his performance which was uncharacteristically poor.

Sio to fullback and Morgan on the wing. I wouldn't change anything in the halves.This will prove to be Arthurs biggest test so far. None of our recent coaches have been successful without Hayne.

Hunt to fullback. He did well covering when Inglis was out for Souths.

Hopefully we don't lose Hayne for long only the sharks game.

Hopoate is an excellent fullback. He doesn't seem to be able to drop bombs that are kicked at him, and will bring down a man one on one.

In previous years, any time Hayne was out, we were blessed with Mullaney or Burt at fullback, two of the worst in the business at the aforementioned skills. So every linebreak resulted in a try.

I feel fairly confident that IF Hayne is out for a couple of weeks, it won't be as bad as 'before'. Hopefully Hoppa gets the gig, and we're able to restructure that right side defence (Morgan and Sandow side by side is terrifying!)

Arthur's was two from six without Hayne in 2012. Not too bad.
