    Hard to demote CH-T to the bench - he started the offence from the kick off.
    But I guess SK will stick with the status quo.

    It would be a real shame to drop CHT. He's been a standout in our last two games. Seeing as all of our hookers are injured or suspended, I'd love to see Niko play most of the game at hooker. But Potato probably won't go for it.

    What's the deal with Herbert? He's back from injury but hasn't been good enough for first grade?

    Pulu's also dropped-off from contention, ay?

    He was really good in his first year with us.

    As it stands on Sunday, we're likely to go into this important game without three of our four best players, Luke, Harris and Fusitu'a.

    That hurts any side but particularly strugglers like us. For starters, I strongly doubt we have a coach who can 'think outside the square' in a moment of crisis.

    Yeah, I suppose that’s a viable option. Desperate times and all that

    Would be poor to drop CHT to bench, and poor to drop Sao... the former likely to happen this week, the latter soon...

    CHT deserves to keep the 6, we know that Tevaga is a rubbish hooker for the most part - Kodi to start off the bench and play dummy half when the 1st middle forward has a breather?

    What's up with Herbert's omission? Is he stinking it up in reserve grade? Did he poop in Kearney's cornflakes?

    This would give us some hope if we can pull off another upset this week.

    Is Nikorima not totally fit yet? Weird selecting him as 18. Feels like if he's fit he should take AK's spot?

    might swap him in late if he's fit? I reckon you swap Nikorima to the bench for this first game back anyways. Jazzhands stays at the 9 and shifts to the 13 when Nikorima comes in.

    Haven't been on in a long time and haven't been watching (so a lot happier in life generally). But how long is The Fus and Tohu out for?

    Tohu is out for the season. Fusitua injured himself warming up against Sharks (not the first time hes done this mind you) and was supposed to be 4 weeks. so cant be too far away from returning.

    Any one got any oil on Herbert? Wondering if he did a Ligi or something and he has to spend the next 12 months in purgatory... oops i mean reserve grade....
