    Gives us more grunt off the bench defensively in particular, which was a worry last week. Good calls, I wonder how the death riders will spin it lol

    I'm sure Taupau and Fonua Blake agree... They bludge when it's ten degrees, they're flat out going to die if it's 35 plus

    I too like the look of those changes.

    We will lose nothing in defence as our starters are subbed. And in this heat the speed of smith coming on to tiring forwards will be potentially massive

    Better balanced side providing Taka and Evans do their job early. Fire up Matagi.

    I predict a stunning loss. Every time I predict a win we get done. So a loss it is.

    I like freddy's strategy with the weather better than barretts ... ie dont mention it as opposed to saying hotter the better - if you say that you are thinking about how hot it is

    I noticed manlys player numbers are at about 600 ... whereas ours are close to 800 .... we have used 200 more players than them after coming into the league at the same time .... i assume they maybe dont include any northern eagles players???

    My brother is a Manly fan.

    I've not spoken to him in about 20 years.
