Guessing at something like the following, the bulldogs are bad, just straight bad, Luke Thompson has become a bit of beast in his 2nd NRL season, but he’s suspended along with a few others, also Cotric and RFM gone, they are a straight out reserve grade side, so warriors should continue giving gametime to guys who will be part of next years team without worrying about them getting dented.
  1. Walsh
  2. Dallin Watene-Zelezniak/Kosi depending on judiciary, might be good game for Kosi to get some confidence
  3. Pompey - assume Vailea injured as well as Berry, would play Berry out of the 3 if fit
  4. Hiku – he’s not going to be here next year, but he does add something
  5. Montoya
  6. Chanel Harris-Tavita
  7. Sean O'Sullivan – not sure what they do with busted Chad, he’s still better than Sean O'Sullivan but guess there is no point playing him dragging an arm
  8. Addin Fonua-Blake – should have another field day against this depleted dogs pack
  9. Nikorima – again, Addin Fonua-Blake should have us on the front foot from the get go, see if Kodi can have more of an influence from the start. The bulldogs have no props, so can't see him getting worked over in the middle
  10. Jamayne Tounua-BrownLodge cover band
  11. Aitken
  12. Curran
  13. Tevaga – Think Sironen injured again, probably why Evans kept being bought back on, had run out of bench forwards
  14. Afoa
  15. Murchie
  16. Katoa
  17. Mystery selection, give a debut to Frei or Pride, I don’t think they can get to 21 players without naming injured guys like Chad and Berry to fill it out the reserves.
