    Interesting team list this week, is Ferguson back, if so is Taka in the top 17. Who replaces Nrown? While it appears stone made a successful return in NSW cup

    NRL.com said in a team predictions thread that Stone will slot straight in.

    I find that hard to believe TBH.

    Not team list related, but if anyone wants a ticket to the game, you can have mine, as I won't be traveling up for the game.

    Yeah I doubt that, but reckon he may be in the 21.

    He is also probably our best option to give Mahoney a break. His service isn’t as good as Mahoney but keeps Gutho as fullback. And we won’t lose much defensively.

    Stefano to debut and be a standout. You heard it here first!

    Probably a good chance as he has been in the 21 men squad (and the final 19 I think) for the last few weeks.

    However I reckon it depends if Ferguson plays or not, if he plays Taka probably takes the spot.

    I think Gower replaces Brown at 13.
    Taka to bench along with Stone, Nuikore and Stefano.

    That's what I would do anyway. I think we need high energy off the bench against the Broncos. Fast PTB and hit them in behind the ruck. I think it will be a high scoring game.

    Tepai, Alvaro and Penishands miss out. Time to see what the youth can do in a high pressure situation that actually isn't really high pressure at all.

    WouIdnt surprise me to see Manu play in the middle. But reckon he starts on the edge and is moved to the middle when Taka comes on (assuming Ferguson plays)

    I’d have Taka at 13 if Fergo is back

    Gower looks like he needs a rest to me.

    Tepai needs to go to union now

    Niukore gets the nod in the 13 for mine with Taka on the bench alongside Gower, Alvaro and Stone or Stefano

    Will be interesting to see whether we still have a forward taking fourth tackle settlers or whether Brown is just a ballhog. My guess is it will continue.

    Yep, in his previous game against us he did just that.
    He played 59 minutes, ran 12 times for 107 metres, including 40 post-contact metres (avg. 8.91 mpr)
    Obviously we don't have the defence to contain him (especially now that your favourite Eel, Nathan Brown is out hey??)

    When he played against the Dogs in Round 14, he also ran 12 times, but made 139 metres (avg 11.5 mpr). I guess the Dogs defence is a little bit softer than your average tub of margarine.
    In his game against the Rabbits which everyone is raging about, he managed 11 runs for 122 metres (avg. 11.09 mpr).

    Not saying he won't carve us up, but gee you talk through your butt.

    What's Mannah done wrong?

    Tepai has been gunk
    Stones had 40 odd mins in 8 weeks

    I'd have to think he has upset someone. His form was solid and has been the standout for Wenty.

    Might’ve been the fact he tried to walk out on the club mid season... I’m not saying that’s the case but who knows.

    Looks a longshot atm but a man can dream. Probably just getting him tuned up for the finals.
