    I am looking forward to our round 5 game against the Raiders. We have the chance to extend our winning streak to 22 regular games, and to keep our position at the top of the ladder.

    I am interest to see if anyone things our squad needs improvement, or positional changes? Me, I say keep the way things as they are.

    Again nothing will be changed unless forced to, and with Kenny getting off his suspension I expect the team to be the same 1-17 from this week.

    Always love when we play against Canberra, seems to be an extra spiciness to this fixture in the last few seasons.

    Really just loving watching our team play at the moment, both in attack and defence it’s so entertaining.

    I was worried about Kenny but the NRL went right past the tackle no worries which was good.

    I am loving all our silly arguments. How often in our history have we been able to argue the case for 3 players in a position with back up options for any moving needed. What a time.

    I don't expect any difference in the 17 we just might see Staines have a few attacking runs at Fullback here and there.

    The fact that they went back a whole set to penalise us for it was so ridiculous, I hope this isn’t a new trend going forward and was more the case of them trying to make sure we don’t win the game by 60+.

    Yeah on report should be sufficient in that case.

    Really hope our backline looks like this.

    1. Staines
    2. Naden/momirovski
    3. Burton
    4. Crichton
    5. To'o.

    The team won’t change, we are 4-0 to start the season and have only conceded three tries so far - including two games conceding no tries and a win against the reigning premiers. Only changes will be forced through injury and suspension which we don’t seem to have any new worries with that.

    Naden? No way. He does not deserve to be in the top side.

    This. Aside from injury it would take a loss and several errors from a player to make changes

    I am still not sold on Eisenhuth yet. Certainly not sure why he comes on before Leinu.

    Has a few silly errors in him and doesn't bend the line back like the rest but there will be no changes

    Eisenhuth is going well i think over 100m off the bench every week and strong defence.

    I think he's there to be just solid and get through some minutes while Lenui is the impact hulk smash player.

    He should start or not be in the 17 then. Really seems a waste of a bench spot

    What's wrong with having the two different styles coming off the bench?

    Should never have been on report. Kenny had another player on his back, so he could pull back. More incompetence from the bunker

    He comes on before leniu because spencer has much better impact against tiring defence. He also gets fatigued quicker.

    He hadn't been on for long last night when manly score but his effort trying to stop it was average.

    Very very good player but I can understand why he comes on when he does atm.

    Only change id make is Burton in the 1
    Critta back at centre.

    Won't happen but I'd love to see it. He'd offer so so much

    I was more talking about going back a full set for the penalty. Putting an earlier incident on report in general seems the more appropriate action.
