Yeah Im not expecting many if any changes. Certainly not wholesale changes like bring in half the reserve grade team. Someone posted up before that the Warriors have used 33 players this year. Id be amazed if anyone else was given a debut this year. Matt Elliott once said unless it was completely necessary you didnt want to use more than about 30 players a year. Cappy would be the same Id imagine...
Dont know TBH but all TPAs need to be approved by the NRL first. Dont see it being allowed as the Panthers and the Eels in the recent past have gotten into trouble for going over the salary cap after using too many 2nd tier players. Panthers was injury related. Eels was when Sticky was trying to clear the decks...
Drop Tui to reserves until he shows he's willing to put his body on the line for his team
Fusitua to Fullback, Ayshford to Centre, Big bopper to Bench (Sipley or Afoa). No to Jono Wright, he's just as slow as Maumalo! Bring up Well's, a winger/fullback with speed to burn and good positioning.
Depends I guess on who Cappy sees as the biggest culprit, Lolo or Maumalo. Lolo might get the nod back the to wing as he is a bit more versatile, but he was hooked which doesn't bode well.. Afoa, Gavet or Sipley to take the last bench spot and actually be used. With Roache on the bench we dont need need another back cover. The cowboys forward pack has size and talent, at least give our boys a chance by selecting a team to try and match it Cappster.
He’s hardly the supreme athlete, fit or no fit, does it make a difference?
2. There is no good all-around option, won’t complain if it was any of 4 different players (wright, allwood, ken, tui) none of them are really suitable, but its sudden death, gotta balance who won’t be exposed on D, but can also finish a chance…. Wright. Or Tui. Maybe.
