General Pick Your Team 2016 Rnd 7 - Bulldogs vs Warriors

A few boys in Reserve grade putting their best foot forward, time for Cappy to look at rotating some of our bench players back through NSW Cup. I'd be looking at Ligi Sao starting at lock if Bodene is still out injured. Shaun Lane also would have to come into contention and Henare Wells seems solid at the back and has rocket shoes.

I think a few changes this week could help our focus, Bulldogs will be on a 5 day turn around and we should be looking to take advantage of that.

Outside of Thompson getting better and Hurrell suddenly becoming the 80 minute player we'd all like him to be and usurping Ayshford, I'm not sure how our team could get stronger on paper than that one.
 
what ever team gets picked we need aggression. when they dogs have been beaten or struggled the other team has really taken it to them. the way manly tackled matulino in the first hit up is the aggression we need.

if not i got this scary feeling that klemmer is going to terrorize us. whats the bet he runs at robson if he robson is in the team?

Good Team and good size on the bench, that will be important against the dogs ... we'll need to match their aggression.

No actual special reason for picking this side.
Other than a heap of power and potential to open a game up.
 
Looking at the Bulldogs forward pack that played this week fills me with dread when I look at the dominance Manlys pack had over us. Could get real ugly at the Caketin.

It could get ugly if Cappy gets selection wrong again. We've got enough firepower to match it with the Dogs including our starters AND potential bench if he gets it right!

Both Graham and Tolman have high workrates and neither of them ran for over 55 mins in their last 2 outings (Tolman did run for 66 mins 3 rounds back and Graham longer in rounds 1 and 2)?

Interesting I thought Muts played too long; 72 minutes and he looked wasted at the end of both halves! Dropped ball and got bumped off from Matai who scored (yeah when he was having a laugh with Myles). Thought he lacked that same sting with his hit ups too! Noticed the same last week when he ran for nearly 70 mins.

Just an observation.

I like the idea of an eighty minute Prop or close to it like him.
However this was possibly one of the dumbest times to start transitioning Mutts into an eighty minute Prop.

If you are going to do it, don't do it when :


1) Vatuvei is out
2) against Manly / Dogs/ Souths.
3) you will lose impact as you say, therefore the bench rotation of the other forwards must include all the players who can compensate for trading away Mutts impact.
 
Time for change

1. Roger Tuivasa-Sheck
2. Ken Maumalo
3. Blake Ayshford
4. Solomone Kata
5. Manu Vatuvei
6. Tuimoala Lolohea
7. Shaun Johnson
8. James Gavet
9. Isaac Luke
10. Ben Matulino
11. Bodene Thompson
12. Ryan Hoffman
13. Simon Mannering

14. Thomas Leuluai
15. Jacob Lillyman
16. Sam Lisone
17. Shaun Lane

18. Ligi Sao

Robson although he played better this week is gone for me Tui to 6 Maumalo gets a shot on the right Manu back to left. A week to early for Ligi Sao for me. Charlie and Albert drop out after poor numbers poor reads on D and poor offloads. Matulino is no 72 min player unless he is on an edge not in the middle 60max 30 in first 30 at end. Lillyman off the bench I think would benefit us more also. Lane to debut for us against his old boys may get 20-30mins depending on how Thompson goes. Konrad to play 80 in NSW cup will benefit him more.
