    Who cares. Most of our full strength wooden spoon standard team is out injured or suspended. May as well forfeit.

    That's what I'd go with. No elliott, fat mata'utia (though i think he's improved since his break from FG), Adams (worthless) or King (too many errors - needs a break anyway)

    I had looked at this game a few weeks ago as a possible win. Given Manly were horribly out of form. I we could have kept the team from the Canberra/ Melbourne games on the field I would have given us a big chance against Manly.

    This one is just funny...

    Back 2 games then another 6 months on the sideline? Please just retire, or head for the Super League (he'd dominate for once)

    Well no, this one isn't a bad one and he'll be back in 1-2 weeks.

    I do agree though, it is getting close to curtains for Mullen.

    Looking forward to seeing Cogger get some more opportunity actually. His last first grade game against the Raiders was by far his best and he looked composed in attack and was strong in defence, not missing a single tackle with Papalli running at him all day. Since then he's captained the NSW U20s Blues to victory and got a personal phone call from Cooper Cronk to say he admires him as a player. Should be full of confidence for this weeks game.

    Poor old Mickey Paea... Actually been OK this season when he's got time but can't seem to get a run and when he does he gets less minutes then all the other forwards. Browny obviously doesn't rate him.

    Bhana and King starting... Meh, give em all a go I suppose.

    Paea should be on the bench. He's been solid every time he's been called upon.
    I like the fact that gags is back at centre though

    Interesting Mamo has been named at fullback ahead of Gagai. The right move IMO. While he makes more mistakes he has more of a spark back there and let's be honest we're not at a stage in our season where we have to be too careful about errors lol.

    Gagai made 4 and missed 7 tackles last weekend. That's just taking the piss.

    Those stats are hardly surprising considering this is his tackling technique

    Do I Dare Say It ........ but he wouldn't be waving his arms around like Kermit if he was playing for ...........................

    But hey, a quality player in our side shouldn't be expected to play like........ a quality player. ;)

    Im glad Gags is out of the No.1 slot, but id love to see Pete Mat get another run there...

    Of all our options from this year, he has shown the most (and in his first game back too)
