    Just an opinion, but if it wasn't for injuries I couldn't see Mannah getting back in our top 17.

    And is it just me, or did Will Smith offer everything and more at dummy half/hooker that Kaysa does?

    He really played a strong game. Having said that, kaysa has been strong the past few weeks too.

    I don't think either is an 80min hooker at this stage

    Shame DeGois is out, Having Kaysa come on as impact for 15-20 min worked well last year and I dare say was the plan for this year. Maybe this can work well with Kaysa/Smith? Im not a fan of using Brown as dummy half

    I can. He's still our 3rd best prop imo. Brown and Alvaro being the best. Although Beau Scott is slowly creeping up the ranks. But still Mannah would be our 4th best prop and we need at least 5.

    Although he might wanna look into headgear. It's like he's this generation's Martin Kennedy.

    I still don't get the Mannah hate, Sure he's not at his best any more, but starting week in week out is a different ball game than coming of the bench. Look no further than the improvement in Scott's game since starting off the bench for evidence of that.

    Shame we don't have the bye this weekend. We are busted and the Cows are in hot form even without JT.

    Hot form? 70% of possession in the first half and down 6-8 and finish with 62% of possession and only win 20-8? They've got stuff all even with Thurston...They've struggled all year to win games even with 60% of possession

    Sheesh - watching that you wonder why the f**k we ever moved him off the wing. He is a gun winger - and plenty of his tries were not even on the wing. He made some of his opposite wingers look foolish. Put him back there. Gutho to FB.

    He scored six of his 19 tries in two games at fullback.

    Why would you do that? He served our club for many many years, almost single handedly took us to a GF, scored near 100 tries and provided years of enjoyment for Eels fans. Yeah he really deserves a heckle.

    Foran signed for 4 years and pissed off after 8 or 9 games. I will give you that one.

    yeah we all know that. But look at the tries he scored on the wing. He created most of them himself. The fullback tries were mostly from backing up. Not all but most.

    I won't be heckling Hayne, i was just trying to make a point,badly obviously, that there will be some people that will give it to Hayne worse than they did Foran, i wonder if ANZ security will be told the same thing in regards to Hayne being heckled. I hope that makes sense.

    So a creative player is probably best utilised somewhere other than the wing. French's problem isn't that he is playing fullback, it is that he is down on fitness and confidence.
