Any new injury concerns?
Any returning players?
Any tweaks to the bench?
He tweaked his calf at training yesterday, unsure on severity.
It happens, there are a number of genetic conditions that make you really prone to soft tissue damage - may have lost the genetic lottery there.Thats the problem with dudes like him, mansour etc. They are cut to ribbons, and for some reason that appears to make you more prone to injury. Either that or they're just made of glass.
Awen Gutenbiel springs to mind, used to be one of the biggest hitters in the NRL, then started breaking down, they mentioned a genetic issue.It happens, there are a number of genetic conditions that make you really prone to soft tissue damage - may have lost the genetic lottery there.
His calves are the size of watermelons, how the heck he tweak one of those?
Found scroll bar, will take back what I said about Pulu, 5 missed tackles, 2 penalties conceded and only 8 runs for 71 meters in 72 minutes. Doesn't sound too hot. Foward depth definitely looking a bit shaky.
He actually ran well compared to the others
ISP for sure then
I would like to see him get a decent kick up the arse. He is highly paid, he isn't allowed dud games.
Mate it is the forwards that are the problem, and always have been during the SK reign.Awen Gutenbiel springs to mind, used to be one of the biggest hitters in the NRL, then started breaking down, they mentioned a genetic issue.
The big hits went out the window, he leaned down to a skinny forward, and became an Elijah Taylor type, a softer tacklebot.
I'm guessing that the only change Kearney will make will be Sao who made his extended bench, probably will take Lisone's spot while he is suspended.
There might be other injury enforced changes of course.
Hoping Roach is fit and we therefore get to see what SK thinks if the three little men are all available all at once.
Hope Taane Milne comes through for us this year.
