Riki in some doubt after he rolled his ankle at training. TC Robati will replace him in the starting team with Piakura to debut if Riki is rested from the game.

Tough game to pick, the last game felt like it could have gone either way but it changed after Gamble dislodged the ball from Ramien's possession. Both team have lost some very influential players from that game - Staggs and Gamble for the Broncos and Mulitalo & Johnson from the Sharks. Cronulla do have more to play for as a win would see them return to the Top 8 so they're not going to go away.

For Brisbane hopefully the forwards can lay a strong platform and allow Milford to create some space for Cobbo & Coates. I think if the Broncos have some success it will be down that right edge of the Sharks.


The boys are showing a lot more grit and I'm looking forward to next year. Swapping Glenn for Capewell will be great and I would like to apologise now to Souths fans for what they are to receive next season from Milford. Can't wait to have an experienced head like Reynolds steering the ship and supplying a proper kicking game instead of the bomb and hope trash we see at the moment. If Staggs can stay on the field all year I reckon we can get into the 8 but probably need another season for the young guys to get their footy smarts together.
