Unless I'm mistaken Pryce will have Frizell and Gagai next to him. Obviously that won't fix all the defensive issues but at the same time it's a decent safety blanket and they'll be at him for the full 80 as to where to be/what to do.

If Gagai gets activated as 18th man, probably won't play this week right? Lucas and Frizz down that side isn't bad either I guess.

I think if the 21yo, who has looked loose defensively to date, playing his first NRL game has a shocker... it's not too far from what is expected tbh. As long as there are some good signs, even with athleticism. This isn't a "must win". The season is long done.
It's certainly easier to swallow than the 100gm player who looks like he's never seen rugby league before.

I guess if Pryce has a shocker, hope he goes really well, then Crosslands can be moved to 6 with Brailey to 9 at anytime during game

Does Pryce have a good long kick? Sick and tired of us kicking for the worst metres week in week out. I reckon Crossland should take some long kicks also.

Who will Pryce be defending against? Asking for a friend. Oh who am I kidding I'll just go with Shaun SBW Lane.

Hey guys so talk Ponga could be back round 19. Sharpe has been very good last two weeks do you reckon there is a chance he takes Tuala wing spot when KP is back or just reckon Sharpe goes back to Cup?

I would say 99% that Sharpe will go back to cup once KP is back. Tuala is a coach favourite and always does well enough to not be our worst on park in any given game. Unexciting but dependable. Sharpe by then will have had his taste of firsts and probably be ready to drop back for a rest anyway. I don't see Sharpe as a winger in any case, Armstrong would have to be a chance to get another run out wide if it really came to that.

Sharpe's going pretty good, but not good enough that he's forcing the coach to pick him in the 17 at the expense of a specialist in the position. If we had another injury or two those discussions could start happening.

Good luck in Supercoach.

We should be looking at KPP right, Lucas left for our future, yes Friz is and has been great but his time is coming, he won’t be with us much longer, can contribute greatly in middle
He is natural right player. Was right centre and edge at Wigan .absolutely playing him the wrong side. I bet if he switches he starts creating plenty.
