Forum outing to St Lukes movies on Sunday at 4pm.. Black Widow or Space Jam 2? Should I start a poll?

From the NRL.com article. "There were no charges from Sunday's Sharks v Warriors,"

Well that's some good news at least.

I was a fan of having the two bulls start the match, and we saw why.

However our bench was mud when they came on compared to where they need to be.

That will teach them for dropping Kane Evans for useless Murchie.

They should have gone large all the way while they could.

So unless they bring Evans in, and even if they do...they probably need to split the two Starting Props.

Toss a coin over who starts, both are equally good.

Next year hopefully Pene means we don’t lose too much opmph when one of or both of Addin Fonua-Blake and Lodge are off the field.

Curran comes in for Katoa or Siro, I do not really mind who, probably Katoa since his defence is suspect.

Aitken in for Berry.

Glad Osullivan gets another run, he deserves, I do not understand why a guy so young has his whole nrl career written off as rubbish when clearly he has an excellent kicking game and needs a lot of road milles and patience.

Happy to see him get that experience in reggies but I do not think the Warriors should throw him away.

Bunty was good.

Brown sucks with his bench use.

I wouldn't be surprised to see Curran & Aitken both listed somewhere from 18-22 after their 2 weeks in iso & no matches for a month. Sliding into the team on Sunday if they're not too underdone.
Seeing as we constantly finish matches with 1 unused Interchange (with the aid of HIA's some weeks) I would like to see Otukolo in the #14

Aitken I’m picking will be right to go, total pro and a fitness fanatic - would’ve been on the exercise equipment I have no doubt and doing all he can. Curren… he could be 10 kilos heavier if he’s been bored out of his brain and smashing the room service for two whole weeks 😀

As solid as Montoya has been, surely Rocco Berry gets to play the rest of the season. He's been touted as one of our rising stars like Walsh, so isn't now the perfect opportunity to get him bedded in to first grade, similar to the game time Walsh is getting at present? Especially so now that the finals chances are slim at best so that pressure is off. Thought he was one of the few players who had a bit of x factor in the weekend.

If we're having two props play 55m there's 0 reason not to take Otukolo on the bench. Egan is alright, but he's not an 80m player.

If you are struggling to get to the forty when your starting props go off, another Prop is a good idea.
Evans runs hard in his starting Bursts.

Clearly Addin Fonua-Blake and or Lodge can play for eighty minutes, they should use Evans to short spell them.
You rate him above LAM & Bunty?

I’m still trying to get over his shirt grab that cost us the game against the Knights….

Seasons over

Get the new blood in.

And given Kosi another run…
Pompey too.

Finishing in 11th instead of 14th is a big deal in terms of recruitment.

Would probably strike a mix of trying to win with blooding some guys

However against Panthers we are definitely losing so would go all in on youth this game and maybe even rest Addin Fonua-Blake and Egan and some other key guys.

NRL wouldn't like that but who cares after what they did to us on the weekend with not charging that guy for breaking Siros nose with a closed fist.

"There were no charges from Sunday's Sharks v Warriors,"


What is going on. Bad enough the guy didn't get sin binned but not charged?

I used to be a union fan but found the reffing decisions impenetrable in terms of understanding or transparency.,

I can't keep following league if guys can do full on thug life hits on our warriors players with no consequences.

Jamayne Tounua-Brown got suspended earlier this year for three games for a phantom crusher tackle that was by accident and barely bent the guys neck.

S Katoa pole axed Sironen on purpose and gets a simple penalty that just restarted our tackle count in the red zone. Ie we got little benefit from it.
He was placed on report and I assumed justice would be done with 2-3 games.

I find things completely illogical and painful to my head to think about.

Why isn't Sione being charged? This is absurd at new levels I havn't seen in any professional sports for any sporting code I have followed. Well maybe cricket with the under arm bowl back in 1981.

What the fuck is going on?

I have thought about it and I can see the logic of not charging S Katoa.

They were aware it was a poor decision to not sin bin Katoa so the judiciary figures if they give 2-3 games it will highlight Suttons poor decision.

That's all can come up with ?

All three were on the bench till silly turn overs Murchie was bumped up the line up.

I was a fan of running three props plus Ben Murdoch-Masila, a big bench, to avoid the slump in meters when Lodge and Addin Fonua-Blake came off.

I know the tackle you mean, it was lousy, overall his defence had been ok, good at slowing the ptb down up till that one moment.

So a swinging fist to the face is only worth a penalty and no journalists say anything. That would of been a sending off in magic round. Anyone can tell me why i should keep watching this garbage product!
