    I guess this is what depth looks like.

    He came back well early from a pretty awful ankle injury with only 40 minutes of match fitness under his belt from NSW Cup the week before. He hasn't fallen, it's clear he's not fit enough to be in first grade just yet.

    Shit ain't a complex mystery.

    Assume if needed that Mann fills in for backs with Moga on

    With Pearce a certainty, there is no need for Crossland.

    We already have 4 halves/pseudo halves in the starting side.

    If Pearce wants a rest, Mann to 6, Lino 7, and Moga left centre.

    If Levi needs a break, Watson to hooker, Mann at the back, Moga centre.

    It is different, Moga on the bench, but he could probably fill the left edge backrower slot in a short stint.

    Looks strange, but much better flexibility than having a kid half on the bench and giving them a token 10 minutes for no reason.

    Hope Moga gets some time on the field and aims up. Having the big unit fit and motivated could come in handy later on.

    The only way I see Moga off the bench working is with Mann to FB and Watson to hooker with Levi taking a break.
    But then I reckon we have enough on the field to share out dummy half a bit.

    I can see some merit in getting players NRL match time in case we need them later in the season.

    I'm glad Moga is getting a go. If he could turn the clock back to 2017 form then he could be an x factor going into the finals. The comments I've heard re his form this year haven't filled me with a lot of confidence however.

    Who is Not sorry??

    I would love to see more JSaifiti but I can see the reason why going Moga would be a smart decision.

    Yeah that’s an odd one. No comparison really between how they can influence the game. I think JSaf’s absolute best is probably better than Gavet’s too.

    Am sure of it, it’s called potential, he just needs to follow his brother
