    BA confirmed in the pre-game presser this morning that Fergo should be sweet to play if he gets through the captains run, but Alvaro will be given a week to recover from the knock and won’t play.

    Also confirmed Ma’u will replace him

    Last year, when Marata debuted, I thought he would become a gun player. I've seen nothing so far to suggest that wont happen.

    I think you're starting to be proven correct.

    I didn't see much in him in 2018, but he has come along nicely.

    You probably just proved the first part of his theorem.

    I reckon you could be right. A real danger game. Newcastle are under-performing big time; but they've got a damn good side. Parramatta will have to come down from a massive high, and focus 100 per cent on this game. If Parramatta wins tomorrow, it will be very impressive.

    Marata is learning for sure. But I still don't see a gun attacking player there. He's started to run a good line but has next to no passing game or offload for eg. I think his strength will always be his defence and work rate.

    Nothing wrong with that, but pretty much bang on with what those in the know said about him.

    Lane is the surprise for me over the last season and a bit.

    He’d be harshly done by, if he misses out on starting if all players are available. He’s been enormous for us thus far.

    I think the only walk up start of injured players is Drown. Even Nrown would struggle to get guaranteed start atm, although I’d say he def be in 17

    They're all danger games these days. 5th plays a struggling 16th at their home ground is a recipe for anything. Good, improving teams like Parra have a chance to stake a claim in the 8 by winning such games. I wouldn't call a win in Newcastle 'impressive'. I'd call it 'expected' if we're going to make a dent in this competition. It'a up to BA and the team to make it so.

    So Alvaro misses out on this game due to concussion.
    It's a good thing the refs didn't judge that he was fit enough to maybe come back onto the field last Monday, thus not sin binning the Tigers player responsible for his injury.
    Poor Jennings was binned for 10 mins and also was suspended for the next game when he did it.

    I'd be tempted to leave Timmy in the role he's been playing from the bench so far, it has been great for our rotation. I'd prolly start Tep up front with Jnr and Terepo in the 13. Keep Mannah on the bench...
