    When I seen the selection I felt like throwing my phone into the concrete. Just trying to make some sense of it. Difficult but trying my best. With the current goings on though this season makes the JDB saga look like a walk in the park and Jayden Okunbur, who's he?

    Maybe Flanno was saying "put another nail in your coffin Mary"
    surely he has got to lose the support from players???

    Just the mention of Aitken has made me realise Dufty's selection is not all that bad.:rolleyes::rolleyes:

    The comp may be suspended for a few weeks after game 2. Mary going for the win to say..look we are in the 8. But the Panthers have other ideas.
    Dont worry it is a smokescreen for something else.

    Yeah well Lomax has shown a good playmaking ability so id use him out the back on sweeping plays and use Dufty on any play up the middle. He would be lethal if used correctly. That try he scored tying Tedesco in a knot in the charity shield is still and always will be one the greatest tries score in a red v.

    A few people have mention Saab lack of form in 9's and trials as a reason for non selection. Fair enough. I think he was solid on the weekend with a nice runaway try.
    What has Dufty done to gain selection.
    He was dropped late last year. Played a game at FB and centre and his last two games were on the wing. All performances were lackluster and he looked like he didnt want to be there.
    Has not played a game since....

    He must have had a cracker off season I'm not too sure as to the inner workings of the side. Im sure its not a lone Mary decision though. He and Flanno must have discussed it. Maybe they feel Saab needs a few weeks against men. Im not sure, I just hope they don't push him out. Personally id go with him to keep continuity at the back and give him a bit more of a run but as I said I don't know what happened behind the scenes. Maybe Rava and Dufty went really well and Saab struggled? This season might only last a few weeks though so why not give some of the young guns a go with no crowd pressure to build up the confidence.

    I wouldn't be surprised to see the classic 11th hour trickster change that Mary loves and has been doing for years - Lomax to FB, Dufty out, and the prodigal son Aitken back in to loosen up defence in those centres with Lafai on a wing or vice versa.

    You could very well be right.

    I’m not sure what would piss me off more. The f**king stupid decision that he has made with the lineup now. Or the smarmy look on his stupid face if he does what you’ve said.

    I can totally see this happening and I can totally see myself throwing my remote through the TV when Aitken rushes out of the line and Hunt gets a season ending injury after being trampled by Kikau when he scores a try.

    It looks like the end of Mary is near. I only hope that it is Sheppard to be interim coach.

    We just won't win with Dufty at fullback and Aiken at right centre. None of this makes sense to me.
