    Considering that the Titans are now above us on the table after starting 0-4... yes, probably, we do.

    Yep almost goodbye 2019 if we don't win.

    I'd run out:

    Aekins
    Too
    Blake
    Johns
    DWZ
    Maloney
    Cleary
    Grant
    Egan
    Tamou
    Kikau
    Yeo
    JFH

    Sele
    Martin
    Leota
    Mansour ( backrow)

    Realistically

    Sele in for Whare will be the only change

    Is Johns within our top 30 ?


    If so Johns at centre, Edwards on wing, DWZ at fullback.


    I don't think it's quite panic stations yet. If we improve as much as we did from Titians to Sharks we may snag a win ?

    Does anyone know what's happened with Jack Herthington is he injured or just been a naughty boy ?

    Who replaced May? Remember NRL stood him down. Allowing clubs to replace as needed. So can use the May and Phillips spots on Johns/Too and fix a few gaps

    Mansour backrow o_O:eek::confused:
    People been saying this for years. Have never understood it.
    He's a (slow now ineffective) winger or nothing.

    He is past it as a winger. Have him for 4 years. So why not try it?

    I think whoever our recruitment officer is needs to go Bush and find some big fast outside backs.The only guy that fits that description is brayden mcgrady and hes out with an acl.Im over our back 3 getting monstered and run down in the clear.Waqa blake is our only shining light in this department.

    I don’t think we can run with one Hooker against Souths. I also think Fui will be at centre & tbh he’ll probably hold his own against Turner.

    Tempted to run with Lui Toso on the bench for a bit of extra impact & size.

    I like this team. Being realistic, Whare's injury has provided the opportunity for change. IMO, including Aekins has more upside than Fui.

    Unfortunately Fui will be named in the centres.

    Not what I want, just what I think.

    Agreed. I liked what I saw of DWZ as a centre. Certainly better than the other options if no one is promoted

    His contract is up at the end of 2021. So only 2.5 years more.
