A thread for all 2018 Round 4 team lists, discussions, news and views. Serves as a team list thread and game day discussion for all games through the week (besides the Warriors one of course :) ).

Feel free to add team lists as they become available people. Thank you...

The cream is rising to the top. The best matches IMO will be Sharks v Storm and our game. Cowboys v Penrith had potential until Cleary got injured. With Blair and Lisone potentially suspended we might be vulnerable. Plus Roarters are clicking. Cronk gives them a real edge.

i dont think i would ever read in my lifetime, "if lisone is missing we could be vulnerable"

and blair either misses 10 mins in the bin or gives away 5 penalties a game. We are going to have to agree to disagree on that one

Raise your hand if you couldn't even pick your nose last week?

As the defending champ in my tipping comp sitting dead last is has been a tough ride this year.

Yeah it's been tough.

I've gone 4,4,5 over the first three rounds.

The games seem a little bit more obvious this week but it's easy to say that before a ball has been kicked.

Interested to see how Jarome Luau goes of the bench another young Kiwi half making his debut this week.

Don't think there has ever been a time in the NRL where we have seen so many Kiwi eligible spine players playing. You've got these players playing this week eligible for the Kiwis.

Hasn't Ponga aligned with Queensland?

Surely the Raiders are going to win. If the coach is worth anything he will have the players breathing fire to avoid an 0-4 start,
He often breathes fire but it's often at the refs, the NRL etc. Needs to aim it closer to home. I was picking them as a top 8 side this year so don't ask me for to pick any winners.:oops:

We have been in that position quite often with slow starts. The opening rounds often have big swing arounds with sides losing one round blasting sides off the field the next week. Usually pissed off after training all off season and not getting the results.

They really are missing Hodgson out of dummy half although Havili has filled in quite well he just hasn't got someone replacing him like Hodgson had with Baptiste to keep thing moving.

I saw a few people tipping them but I think they will be up against it at Brookvale.

Geez a player slips and falls into a tackle and that is a head high. The refs are getting anally retentive for sure.

Another good match up scheduled for Thursday like last weeks Storm vs Cowboys. A bonus we don't have to get up early for work the next day.

See how the Panthers go without Cleary.

Should the Warriors be worried about these two?
