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...

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

Shaun Johnson 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.

Not on what I saw yesterday.
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
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.

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.
