We are improving week to week with the same team. Why not go for 8 on the trot?

No Hoff, Lillyman or Kata! I like, apart from Luke still at 9.

Lillyman has been one of our most consistant forwards in terms of metres gained. He's not the player he used to be, but still one of the first picked in this mob.

Kearney needs to show Kata can't keep being rewarded with first grade starts for his inept performances, he should've been dropped 5 weeks ago and he would probably be back now with a new hunger for the game. You've got CNK who is 3rd (equal) try scorer this year for the club, can't get a look in.

Anyone who can get into formation and then tackle, and can run lines on attack.

Stop trying to develope players who aren't trying to develope themselves.

How's that for a culture shift?

Picking Kata and leaving out CNK just does my head in.

This is a poor side in that although there a rock stars, some as SK says are just not FG. That is not Kearney's fault but why does he ignore CNK, who can play FG for a guy who just cannot.

Centre is a pivotal position. Kata needs massive reprogramming, and FG is not the place to do that.

I know everybody blames Kearney for the performance but if half the squad is not up to FG even Bennett would have trouble, but I wonder if Bennett would pick Kata when he has the option of CNK.

The pressure of First Grade is far too immense for learning the basic skills... You just get absolutely blitzed on every single fuck up.. And when you name is Solo Kata, you're getting blitzed a lot. Nobody can learn under that kind of pressure.

Our prop stocks are shot and I can't condone more midget props like Bell and Tevaga....and I simply don't like Gubb so...

1. RTS
2. Fusitua
3. Ayshford
4. Allwood (I suspect he's the only one the NRL will let us play)
5. CNK
6. Hingano
7. SJ
8. Satae (Go hard, give him extra time before stint 2)
9. Luke
10. Matulino
11. Hoffman
12. Papali'i
13. Mannering

14. Lisone
15. Afoa (at prop)
16. Maumalo (sub Papali'i)
17. Tevaga (can cover hooker if need be)

Assuming that Vete, Lillyman, Roache, Foran, Thompson, Gavet, Sao are all still unavailable.

Yup Lillymans meters have been fine, problem is our middle is as soft as coke dick, and hes one of the two meant to shore it up.
Still missing Michael Luck in that regard, as while 100m a game is fine from Lillyman, he cant put a shot on, he cant shoot out and stick a heavy one on one tackle, in fact he gets turned inside as regularly as the Hoff, which is a lot.

Lillyman would be a great bench prop if we had the numbers.
