Pick Your Team 2016 Rnd 19 - Manly vs Warriors


Please bare in mind that we have the BYE next week during Round 18.

After the Round 17 game against the Gold Coast Titans at Mt Smart Stadium do you want to see any changes for the Round 18 game against the Manly-Warringah Sea Eagles at nib Stadium?

Promotions?
Demotions?
Any new injury concerns?
Any returning players?
Any tweaks to the bench?

Discuss...

Vatuvei for Lolohea. Big ken might finally get a try scoring chance on the right wing.

Hoffman for afoa. Wish we had a impact backrower for the bench, is Lane worth at least trying in that role? Roache isn't going to play much but for injury and TL can cover hooker, Thompson cover centre...

Same Team accept Manu in For Ken, Hoff In For Gubb. Both ken and Gubb on the Bench while Afoa and Roach drop out of the side. Maybe Roach 18th man.

I think the promotion of Afoa pretty much sums up the chances of Lane being here next year or playing a prominent role in our season this year.

The Manu, Ken, Matalino and Vete on the charge set is something I want to see followed by some Johnson magic. Those first few tackles would wear the shoulder down

Hoffman can sit this one out. SJ hobbling is freaking me out. Manu can sit this one out too. Basically only worried about SJ at this point. Every damn game really to be honest

They're just another team in the way of our finals run.

SJ having 2 weeks to recover should sharpen our attack up.

I'd like to see a score line resemblant of the Knights game rather than the Roosters games. But wins are wins.

Manu in to replace LoLo, I think Ken has done enough to to hold onto his spot for another game.

Sipley in aswell.

Not on what I saw yesterday.

Vete has a fearsome build. Fifteen decent hitups from him and even the toughest tackler would be wincing. I wonder if he really knows that though, first grade players don't start wincing until they have really been knocked sideways, and that doesn't happen with a couple of hit ups.

U think hoff needs 3 weeks off to recover from a cold?
What kind of flu is this? Bird?
What are we missing without him? Didn't notice the Warriors being worse off without him last night.

Same team for mine, other than the obvious which is Hoffman back in for Afoa. Maumalo has been playing well, and I don't think shoving Manu back in there who will make a guaranteed couple of errors in a rusty return is worth it. Especially in Perth, where we have struggled. Keep the match fit players on the park and try conserve as much momentum and cohesion that they've gained over the past month.

Can't remember Manu having many happy matches against Manly now that you mention it, but then again the Warriors as a whole haven't had a great time of it against Manly.

Time to break a couple of bad records. Manly and Perth.

I like this line of thinking, Ken to provide back cover and can play minutes in the middle. I like Roach but for mine he doesn't add enough impact when he comes on, I would prefer 4 fowards on the bench.
