Any new injury concerns?
Any returning players?
Any tweaks to the bench?
He tweaked his calf at training yesterday, unsure on severity.I honestly can't have Luke in the team at the moment.
Scared of contact, not running North/South, no darts out of dummy half.
Roache was getting us over the advantage line. We need that extra speed
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?
ISP stats page only has tries/scoring and fantasy points for players - but according to that CHT, Herbert at FB, Lawton, Tom Ale and Pulu at least didn't have terrible games. Most telling stat is only 38% possession and 10 penalties conceded.
He actually ran well compared to the othersLisone has to be dropped
ISP for sure thenPulu, 5 missed tackles, 2 penalties conceded and only 8 runs for 71 meters in 72 minutes. Doesn't sound too hot.
I would like to see him get a decent kick up the arse. He is highly paid, he isn't allowed dud games.I'd like to see Blair go back to lock/prop
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.
