Titans played well against Cows but they ran out of steam.
We will likely have DSaf out. Cogger at 6 but expect Crossland to fill in a lot.
If ever there's a time to give Pryce a run it's now.
Us for a slight win.

Not to bank on other's teams injuries, but Brimson will likely be out at least 1 week too.

I’d pick Crossland but it will definitely be Cogger. He got pulled from NSW Cup today (presumably to avoid him getting injured too).

I’m with the majority Crosslands over Cogger but as a bit of a realist it will be Cogger, he missed Cup yesterday to ensure fit, Obi already stated that we have Cogger and he was bought to fill in at half back And it involves only one change to team set up.
I know we don’t make drastic changes mid season but I always think of Cogger as a 7 from his earlier days at Knights and hasn’t Hastings played a fair bit of 6, just a thought🫣

I think it's less about Cogger's attack than it is about his defense. Fifita is going to run at him all day. How many tries is he going to let in? I'm much more confident in the Frizz/Crossland combination marking up against Fifita.

It might be a bridge too far to be hopeful about the weekend with those outs away from home. Even an ugly win would be quite impressive. We're lucky they've got some big outs too, we're going to have to get right in the trenches and scrap for it.

Maybe Lucas at centre, cartwright to second row and *random cup forward* on the bench?

I think it's just his general ability start to finish as a first grade footballer. What he lacks in defence (pretty much everything) isn't made up for when he's also a negative with the ball.
