OK this is a forum game called last man standing.
In each of the remaining 4 teams lists I will post a question. Those that make a correct guess get to participate next week and so on until there is "one man left standing"

To enter you need to quote my post this week and answer the following Question

"In the match this week Will Katoa either drop/knock on a pass or spill the pill due to poor ball security when being tackled? (Yes or No)"

Go
No
 
If you're asking about one handling error or bone head play for Katoa Wrighty then no.
More than one most definitely yes.

The Doggies are on the rise and gaining momentum and I think we will struggle to beat them.
Walsh and Johnson will have to put away the big looping pass to DWZ or the Fox will have a field day with intercepts. I have watched a lot of Dogs games this year and when Addo-Carr sees sees that coming he is so quick to take advantage. And I don't think we are smart enough not to do it.

And who gets to catch the bombs from Burton? I can see the back 3 yelling "Yours" when one goes up

I think they will be too good this time. Too much firepower and a bit of confidence for us.

But please prove me wrong guys. I don't mind 🙂

Apologies for double posting but honestly what the f*** are the coaching staff thinking by making so many changes to the lineup every single week. Have they heard of building combinations, of consistency? Have they looked at the guest teams and realised they're not constantly moving their best players around? It does my f'ing head in.

We traditionally start slow, so we bench arguably our highest potential player to start f'ing Bunty Afoa. Great, look forward to Curran coming on when we're down 3 tries.
 
Wrightys analysis

Fullback Warriors
Wings double advantage dogs
centres Tie I like Aaron Schoupp
Halves Dogs
props warriors
Hooker double advantage warriors Marshall King is pants
Second row - dogs
lock - warriors

Bench
Warriors just. Weak benches

Warriors - 5 advantages
Dogs - 4 advantages

Warriors to take this by having a better bench
Effort and Ticker - Bulldogs.

Bulldogs out enthuse us and win by a decent margin.

I think Marshall King has come good lately, been a big part of their resurgence, distributes well and makes good decisions, looks dangerous when their pack gets a roll on. Can't pick this one, leaning towards the dogs having more strike out wide and running away with it late, but we might roll them up front early and gind it out. Lot of inexperience in both sides, anyone's game.
 
Asi to have a blinder playing at Mt Smart in front of a home crowd. I think we should win this purely because of home advantage. Not sure how I'm still optimistic after the season so far but here we go again up the Warriors!

Glass half full and supreme optimistic view. Our team is pretty decent this week. Bunty will go hard for 30 against a decent Dogs pack. He won’t return. Curran will bring the steel, Katoa and Ale the flair. The backs have plenty of game.
Yeah Im hopeful of things. Going well for the boys get a W.
Bunty at lock is just weird, even if that just means a positional swap with Harris - perhaps protecting Ale (who I’m looking forward to seeing) for a start ? But yeah, why not Curran??!
My guess is they dont want to burn curran out. Hes one of our best and less time he is on the paddock less chance for other chump teams to injure him.
