For a change, I thought I'd actually have a go at naming a team. Like, seriously. But then I had to stop, cos I was just sitting at the table, head in hands, muttering "OK, so that's #13 sorted... what the fucking fuck do I do now?" I was ready to soldier on, but got sidetracked again by the realisation that Kearney must do that every single week. It's no wonder our coaches have so often opted for incumbent players... they'd have been staring at a piece of paper with Mannering's name on it for the whole day, then have to name the team 30 seconds before deadline.
Roger Tuivasa-Sheck Fusi Ashyford Kata CNK Foran Johnson Gavet Luke (60 minutes only please) Vete Matulino Hoffman (would love to drop his arse, talks it up in the media about dedication while being one of our worst..) Mannering
Roache (maybe use him this time???) Afoa Gubb/Lisone This one is tearing me up, don't rate either TBH. A Sipley, I don't care which one, we need a big mongrel bastard in there.
