Latrell has taken himself out of Origin and is committed to Souths.

They'll be without Cook, Arrow and Murray and we'll be without Ponga (most likely) and Gagai. Maybe even D-Saf, we'll see.

Basically I expect Alex Johnston to get a hat trick and Latrell to be super influential.

We get Brailey back though. Very interesting match-up I think and goes without saying, a must-win if we want to keep finals hopes alive.

I would more inclined to put Klemmer in to replace Haas….but we all know RCG will be picked and Paulo will start…..or Jordan Mcklean

It is very difficult to see how we win this now that Trell has decided to go Beast Mode and focus solely on his club’s fortunes. And Cody Walker of course finds form now That Trell’s runs create the space he needs on The left.

I'd actually be tempted to switch Dom and Tuala in defence... Otherwise it might get really ugly down that side.

They’ve got plenty of forwards out with Origin and injury. No reason we can’t win, outside of our inherit shitness.

Maybe carrying two 9s could be the plan
moving forward. Brailey’s workload will be a gradual easing in week to week.

That means more Randall, so I’m not really for that. Happy to ease Brailey back but he gets paid to be an 80 minute hooker, we’ll paid enough to not be sharing duties with Randall.

Other option is Mann back to 14 and Brailey starts. Could mean Fitzgibbon recalled.

would be happier with this (minus fitzy returning).

I just don’t see AOB moving Mann. Seems full steam ahead with Mann being our #13 and key ingredient, for some reason.

Brailey looks so happy. So happy for the lad.

Wonder if Best will have a blinder? I hope we use him as a centre and not a battering ram.
