Pick Your Team 2017 Rnd 3 - Warriors vs Bulldogs

NRL+Rd+7+Bulldogs+v+Warriors+pcQcYyQo4UXx.jpg

After the Round 2 game against the Melbourne Storm at Mt Smart Stadium do you want to see any changes for the Round 3 game against the Canterbury-Bankstown Bulldogs at Forsyth Barr Stadium?

Promotions?
Demotions?
Any new injury concerns?
Any returning players?
Any tweaks to the bench?​
Discuss...

My bet is Foran won't make the field.

If it's injury related, so be it.

But the idea of playing Ata ahead of Foz is absolute madness. Kieran is one of the best players in the world, if his body is right to go, he'll be playing.

Siply has to get a shot. Him and Mutts are the only forwards in our squad who can bend the line.

We need the Roosters forward attack. JWH bends the line and gets the quick PTB. Moa runs in real fast to take advantage of the back peddling defense.

We could do that with Siply and Bunty/Lisone... We can do that with Manu leading the charge as well.

We've got to get more time for our halves somehow, or it's just gonna rinse and repeat all season.

Foran was one of the best players in the world with a wonderful understanding with Shaun Johnson. To have that on the field would be special.

At the very least I don't think any NRL club would risk him straight up into first grade without a warmup match. The speed of the game alone would have him gagging and I don't think they can carry him on the bench. That is aside from the drum beats that Chris Rattue has picked up. That might be in Rattue's dreams or something he has been fed, or it might be true. Who knows?

If SK picks him it will definitely be his decision, so I would be prepared to trust him though. Maybe they are feeding Rattue to mislead the Bulldogs.
 
After last night, how could Tui be selected? He was hopeless. No confidence or reading of the game. Defense, well, what defense?

Hey zeuss, that would be a gamble of hail mary proportions. The fecker hasn't played for a whole season and you want to throw him straight in against that mob?

Every single nrl club would play him.

Agree - not sure why people would still be picking him, he's gotta go - surely there's someone else that could play that gives a toss. :D:D

I doubt Foran will be playing FG for at least a couple more weeks.

He is lacking match fitness so it wouldn't surprise me if he has a run with the reserves prior to make his FG debut.

As I have said time and time again and now proven to be right, Gubb and Maumalo need to go, Lolohea can join them, Sipley and Manu in, Alwood for Lolohea

Will be same team next week though, Kearney is so stubborn

Line bending wont be a priority. It'll be defending our middle and middle edges. We need Albert Vete, Charlie Gubb and Jacob Lillyman for that. If Toafofoa is to replace anyone it has to be because his defence is better than the man he replaces. With David Klemmer, James Graham, Aidan Tolman, Sam Kasiano and Greg Eastwood running at you you better have the manpower to contain them and shut down their second phase play.

Only change I would make at the back is Manu Vatuvei but is his defence going to be any better than Ken Maumalo's or Tuimoala Lolohea's? One bonus would be getting the sets off right but not if he's going to be leaking points with the Morris' running riot...
