11 day stand down so Charnze Nicoll-Klokstad will be back and will play fullback.Are Ford and Charnze Nicoll-Klokstad both out for 2 weeks (failed HIA 11 day stand downs), or were their head knocks not "category 1"?
If Ford is back, he slots in for Barnett on the edge (apparently left stadium on a stretcher - hopefully just as a precaution!), or takes Sironen's bench spot if Barnett is good to go.
Assuming Egan will be out, Lussick comes in.
Wiliame back in for Vailea (if Charnze Nicoll-Klokstad is out) - Vailea wasn't bad, but wasn't good either. Would rather the safe option for the must-win against the Doggies.
The biggest question is what Webby does if Charnze Nicoll-Klokstad is available... I think that if Charnze Nicoll-Klokstad is available, he'll just swap in for Tuaupiki. However, some have posted for Charnze Nicoll-Klokstad to come in at centre - Charnze Nicoll-Klokstad has had mixed success at centre when playing there for the Kiwis, but would be an upgrade on Wiliame I think. Pompey has probably played well enough to retain his jersey... for now. Pompey's defence is solid, and he has shown glimpses on attack, but the dumb plays can be a killer...
Otherwise, same team.
Good to know - I think that in the excitement of looking to what the boys can offer up next week, I let my maths slip haha.11 day stand down so Charnze Nicoll-Klokstad will be back and will play fullback.
There is no chance that Barnett is playing, I can't imagine the team risking it.1 Nicoll-Klokstad
Yeah, just read he was taken to hospital in a neck brace so will update my lineup as who knows how long he will be out for. Dallin Watene-Zelezniak might be a chance but round 5 was his expected return.There is no chance that Barnett is playing, I can't imagine the team risking it.
Switch Tevega and Lussick, Afoa in the 10, Dallin Watene-Zelezniak in possibly for Kosi with Siro/Curran coming on the bench.
Would imagine it's precautionary going into round 4 against the Dogs.I see Lussick is out of today's NSW Cup team. Is it because of injury?
He was 18th man so he travelled with the team and wouldn't get back to Auckland for the gameI see Lussick is out of today's NSW Cup team. Is it because of injury?
I think he's ready, and our forwards will have his back if the Flogs try a little Freddy bashing. We're not the affable nice guys of the nrl anymore, it's 2023 and we're Sam Rapira core.Lussick has proven himself a capable replacement and probably deserves a game given his performances in Cup in the first couple of rounds.
Jazz is going to intimidate many this year, looked fucken evil after he scored that try and the camera was on him running back.I think he's ready, and our forwards will have his back if the Flogs try a little Freddy bashing.

I had no idea. With that being the case he would have come close to being activated last night.He was 18th man so he travelled with the team and wouldn't get back to Auckland for the game
Probably didnt need him. I think getting Ale as many valuable minutes early in the season is smart. Build his confidence and fitness and keep Bunty fresh. Its a long season, and Bunty is a play every game type guy so will be invaluable if we make a run at the finals.Was there a reason Bunty only played limited minutes? Think he only played 17 total?
