Pretty sure Blair will miss a week so Mannering back to lock. Not ideal to bring Pulu straight back after one isp game but we have vuna to give him a spell when he needs it.
Bench of
Afoa
Satae
Vuna
Jazz- come on for mannering

1 is better on attack & the other is better on defence...so in some games we're fucked either way..being putting up with katas tunnel vision a bit longer though

Do you think we basically have Stockholm Syndrome when it comes to Kata? He will make one or two great plays and we forgive all his previous sins. Don't get me wrong, I was calling for Hiku's head after the Panthers game but at least he knows how to pass the ball!

Gavet needs to be dropped. He is lacking effort and Im sick of seeing him keeled over with his hands on his hips all the time

I can't work out what has happened to Gavet

I can only assume in reality he was just the best in a bad bunch last couple of seasons.

Otherwise, why would he regress while others (Bunty, Maumalo, Luke, Fusitua plus more) have improved immeasurably.

when was the last time he had a line break? looks like he goes a 100 miles but no impact on the line

In the end his body shape long and lean and his lack of foot speed is not condusive to NRL top prop credentials. Its sad cause he's gutsy but his lack of speed and size evaporates his effectiveness. In the end he is an average run of the mill player, but he must have mana with in the team which gives him a spot.

He seems like a real gutsy player but he's battled with injuries earlier in the season. He's been averaging around 40 minutes a game since returning and cementing a spot so I'm not sure why he looks like he's still battling with fitness.

He looks like he's going full pelt into the line but not making any impact which suggests he may not be carrying enough weight relative to his height (BMI). Considering his straight and hard approach like Paasi, you'd expect him to weigh around 112-115kg in order to make a similar impact . Not sure exactly how big he is now but says 108kg which is lighter than Tohu Harris and around Blair who also doesn't make much of an impact at the line.

I had the impression, that he was carrying some bruises, and was afraid of the contact and looked like he was wincing after running it up a few times. With each more recent outing he has been getting more and more fearless to the point that he held his own against Bromwich and NAS on the weekend, who are two of the better props in the world.

He looks fine now and at least he is coming good down the business end of the season. About 6-7 games ago he looked ginger.
