After the Round 12 game against the North Queensland Cowboys at Queensland Country Bank Stadium do you want to see any changes for the Round 14 game against the Melbourne Storm at Central Coast Stadium?

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

Discuss...

WE HAVE A BYE NEXT WEEK IN ROUND 13

Sean O’Sullivan has to have a go IMO. Has a better organisation game then both Cody and CHT, better kicking game, and takes the line on more. Is able to build pressure and force repeat sets, which we can’t do. Kodi and CHT have 8 between them in 18 games, SOS has 5 in 4 games.
We looked a bit stagnant in attack when he was playing, but more structured. With Reece at the back, we have that attack we were missing.

Knee jerk reaction is to put Walsh in the halves. He looks great at FB, setting up tries and scoring them. We shouldn’t ruin that

From nrl.com

“Walsh and Dunn were hit with charges over the same incident, Dunn with a grade one dangerous contact charge on Walsh and Walsh with a grade one striking charge as he retaliated. Both will receive a one-match ban with an early guilty plea or risk two-match bans if they plead not guilty and lose at the judiciary.


Pompey is also facing a one-match ban with an early plea or two at the judiciary for a crusher tackle”

That means we are down two backs
Berry obviously comes back...does Ken come back for this game? might have to.

I would like to see Brown swing the Ax on Jazz for 3-4 games to give him time to reflect.
I would bring Ken back for this game as Murchie was sound defensively but Naff offensively at centre last time so don't want a second rower

1 RTS
2 Montoya (Thank goodness we picked him up in the off season)
3 Berry
4 Aitken
5 Ken
6 Kodi
7 CHT
8 Addin Fonua-Blake - Yeah Boy
9 Egan
10 Evans
11 Curran - should be back
12 Murchie
13 Harris

14 Sironen - oh wait he is out. SOS then on the bench at 14.
15 LAM
16 JTB - Pick him over Bunty as both are Naff runners but JTB probably gets through the more tackles. Bunty 22.2 tackles per game and JTB 25.5 tackles per game. JTB avg running metres 54 and Bunty 68
17 Ben Murdoch-Masila

Addin Fonua-Blake/LAM/Evans to get big minutes and JTB to only get a 12 minute stint. Like SK used to give garbage minutes to the most junior forward on the bench.

Pompey is out likely with a suspension, unfortunately.

Want to see Berry given a shot in the halves due to his long kicking game, showed a lot of it in Union playing fullback, and its something we will need with Walsh out. But he probably won't provide much in terms of last tackle options (not that we're good in that department anyway). Nikorima lucky to even be on the bench with Otukolo lurking. Wanted to drop CHT also but lets be honest, he's better than SOS in every facet. Want to see Vailea given a shot on the wing. Tevaga dropped and I probably won't select him again this year, unless injuries happen.
