    I’d put both our 2 new signings in there as direct swaps for Fusitua (missing first few weeks due to late quarantined start) and Papalii who in rounds 1 and 2 was very much run of the mill.
    *Blair dam lucky to be there as well imo

    Now see I do not get this, just test him......FFS.

    NRL must have testing capacity, surely they can test one player.

    I think it’s more SK has said he won’t be ready till round 4-5 as has missed 3 weeks with the team as spent his 14 days in Sydney hotel totally away from squad trainings and only joining team in Gosford this week. But yes if good enough i’d slit him in. Fitness will be the decider i guess

    Yep, I'd be happy with that team at this point, but in all honesty with the injuries we've had I can't see Kearney being that proactive with moving Papalii out and Blair to prop.

    My guess at what hell do:
    Paasi
    Egan
    Burr
    Katoa
    Tohu
    Blair

    Nikorima
    JTB
    Papalii
    Murchie/Roache/Curran

    I hope I'm wrong and they drop Pap

    Just an error - he signed with Newcastle this year. Has been like that (on the squad list) for months. I imagine we're next to Newcastle in their back end (alphabetical).

    Yeah Pompeys in Aus with team. I clear forgot about him. I guess him or Beale would be leaders for any opening on the wing

    Considering how s**t we were in those 1st couple of rounds, am pretty dam excited for Team Naming Tuesday. But.... if SK names pretty much same 17 as played v Knights n Raiders, then that excitement going to disappear bloody quick

    Duuuuude I'm the same. Been looking forward to tnt and seeing who else we are picking up this week.

    I'm really worried tho, we all know what Kearney is like and there's a good chance we have no changes. Really hoping that's not the case

    How to lull the opposition into complacency.Name a team like this.The reserves look more exciting than the named starters-but overall the Dragons wont be too concerned imo.

    So we drop CHT and keep that ball bags Papalii. Has he been blowing SK these last few weeks while away from the missus or something!!
    Katoa dropped to the bench? Way to reward probably our best player v Raiders. We are so going to get fkn owned by those Dragons forwards.

    Wow, super disappointing line up.
    CTH needs to be there, as does Katoa, who WAS our best player in the first two games.

    Feeling deflated with that
