    Sweet, give him a game or two in reggies, no rush. Geez itโ€™s a nice luxury to have even being able to play Simon off the bench!

    Sao had a bad head knock against the Roosters...shoulder hits head, probably needs a few weeks rest....but looks like he is in the ISP cup side.

    Yep last week was a head knock and currently nobody bar maybe SJ, RTS or Luke walk straight back into the starting lineup after a break

    I would think Green would get an automatic pass.

    Even though Mannerings return via the bench was probably only about looking at what's best for him, Indirectly it sends a good message about not taking a form players start straight off him.

    No harm in it anyway since Mannering is secure in the knowledge that he's a senior player and his best role is a starter, not an impact player. Obviously pretty happy Mannering gets the message that his days of playing broken and having to do everyone else's work for them...are over. If anyone earned it...its him.

    Vete must really regret getting suspended in his last game 2017, how tough must that be now ?

    Even guys like Lisone must get a bit nervous when they're out for a week now (especially with Papalii in the Wings...another unfortunate to miss out this week).

    Competition for spots has just been a catch phrase at the club for it feels like forever.

    Beales coming online in time to push keep the backline honest as well.
    Happy days.

    Gillette out for the broncs. Neck fracture, 3 months. Big loss.

    Nikorima completely ruled out too.

    No Adam Blair at the Broncos, no Gillet, that's a lot of workload to pick up.

    Maybe that's a touch of karma for using us as a bargaining tool in his last contract, when he was never in a million years going to come here but publicly said he was weighing it up.

    Hope the injuries don't cause us to put the feet up a little bit. Would be disastrous.

    Interesting to see Jack Bird at 6. Neither he or Milford are organizers but they can't do any worse than the pairing of Milford and Nikorima.
