Who did you pick in today’s game, us or the dogs?
The doggies. But I was happy to be proven wrong (even if it was an ugly win). I genuinely think any other team beats us though

the cowboys have a lot more attacking threats over the park than the dogs and our defense is reserve grade standard

The game is in Townsville.
I don’t necessarily believe the cows are better than us but I agree with Speedy that our putrid reserve grade defence will prove the difference.
Cowboys should win.

Cowboys coach Todd Payten says his side hasn’t put together what he considers to be a complete performance “for a long time”

While Payten said this meant his side was “pushing it uphill” once it did have chances with ball in hand, he was still left to rue wasted opportunities.

“Every time we did get some sort of ascendancy we either couldn’t execute the play or gave away a penalty,” a frustrated Payten said.

Don't worry Toddy, your mob will look like world beaters next week.

I wish I was surprised but I’m not

I think Roberts will end up being a late inclusion

Don’t get why we carry cini on the bench. Simpkin should be there to spell Liddle

Carrying a back on the bench to cover for injury is just weak.

considering Liddle plays in the most important position on the field and he struggles, I think a back up specialist hooker would work well

don’t let the win on Sunday paper any cracks, we were terrible
We lost laurie early in the Warriors game and we struggled.
Mbye covers the backline and the 9, if Liddle gets gassed, then you need someone to cover for him. We all agree. But if we don't have a back on the bench, we have no one to cover a backs injury, where we had Mbye to cover?

I thought it was the solid option as we don't have a an 80min 9?

If we are so concerned about injury then swap Cini for Mbye. As dog shit as I think Mbye is he can cover multiple positions, albeit at at a reserve grade standard.

Sorry, I've lost your point? Do you mean play Cini at 1 for the whole game and Mbye from the bench? Not that it matters, but I just think this is the best of a bad situation, but who knows who will be in the final 17 and who starts?
