    No Lolohea in the 21 brings much joy. Also no more ET at #9.

    Well done, Ivan!

    He is listed at hooker on the team announcement video that they put up on the Facebook page. MM is on the bench and Eisenhuth at lock. So who knows which one is correct!

    Bloody hell.

    Well to be fair, ET's service was better against the Sharks than previous weeks.

    Probably the best side we have atm. Maybe Huth in for Rochow?

    The team to me looks better but ET is still at hooker and I don't know who we play as edge backrowers. Lawrence should make 80 as usual. Rochow was playing (I think) close to 80 at the start of the season. Maybe ET will move to the right edge and spell Rochow.

    Still Tui probably had to go. Thompson is currently the best fullback at the club. We also have some speed with our wingers. The problem is we have a back three that is pretty weak although our centres will belt it up to help our the Kiwi props.

    Aloiai hopefully is practicing holding the ball.

    I reckon Rochow will aim up again this week. Started the year very well, hopefully a few weeks of minnow bashing in the ISP he'll have his tail up again.

    The team is very good.

    Would like Macca to start, with ET starting at lock and Hazlewood on the bench.

    Maybe Grant to start for Mats as well.

    Glad Lolohea finally got dumped. He's only interested when we have the ball and he's up in the line. Every other facet of the fullback role he looks totally uninterested.

    I hope its a ploy to make him do something on the field. Just seems weird to reward someome for doing nothing .

    Right second row is a real issue for us. Rochow started the year well but fell away. Aloiai has always looked promising but is being let down by his hands lately. Chee Kam has been ordinary on the right, always played his best on the left however that’s where Lawrence has been so good for us.

    Id be looking to move ET there fulltime if I was Ivan.

    Casino perhaps? I've been forced to go there a couple of times to watch games, although there are sports clubs kicking around.

    I like this idea. If ET nails that right edge we should get solid performances there and hopefully that side isn't an issue.

    I reckon Chee-Kam has been good on the right but he only appears to have minimal quality minutes per game. Playing him there for 80 minutes has been a failure.

    ET on the edge would also allow us to play a massive and good middle forward rotation. Packer/Matulino/Aloiai/Twal/Eisenhuth and one of Grant, Sue or Felise playing at lock and prop.

    ET adds nothing on the edge. If he is going to be in the team he needs to be in the middle doing everyone else's tackling with a bit of ball playing.

    On the edge he would be solid defensively but not be making as many tackles, offers no threat running the ball and would have no or very limited ball playing opportunities.

    I think he is better in the middle but I think he could do the job on that right edge. He isn't the guy who is going to dent the line but he defends really well and he may add something offensively. I reckon it's worth a go plus we have a lot of middle forwards.
