after last night, no-one deserves to be dropped but with the almost certain inclusion of price i think we should give sammy rapira another run at the expense of micheal luck(probly wont happen), he wasnt bad but i just think he went missing on occasions or he just got outshone by his more skillfull team mates:
1.B. Webb
2.M. Taulapapa
3.T. Martin
4.S. Mannering
5.M. Vatuvei
6.J. Ropati
7.G. Rovelli
8.R. Wiki
9.N. Fien
10.S. Price
11.A. Guttenbeil
12.W. Koopu
13.S. Faumuina

14.G. Gatis
15.E. Tuimivave
16.S. Rapira
17.L. Anderson

I wouldn't mind having him in there either mate. I think he deserves another crack at it.

Apart from that, same team for me.

Interesting to see that:

Luck, 28 metres, 22 tackles
Rapira, 56 metres, 21 tackles.

hopefully we go good like we played against the west tigers if we do play like we played against the west tigers we probably have a chance to win against the cronulla sharks

louie will probably be gone for a week ? so luck will get his run .

hope they dont rush pricey back into the starting 13, bench him with rapira.

Whichever team they select is going to have be on fire judging by
the way the Sharkies came back at the Dogs yesterday.

Latu is coming to kick some home town ass - that's my boy :D

sammy rapira deserves another go but what has reliable michael luck done wrong that you suggest he is dropped?

I don't think it should be a matter of what someone has done wrong, but what have they done wrong the goal should be excellence not achieved.

18th man: Sam Rapira to cover for Steve Price dependent on how he pulls through post Origin.

Same team as against the tigers except steve price obviously slipping in somewhere. Duno who for though everyone played to well to be dropped on saturday!!!!

It`s often the team captain who uses his leadership skills in inspiring a team to play really well... or not. Can`t help but wonder if that was true against the Tigers the other night.

Depending how Price pulls up in the S.O.O, I'd say he will be a starter.
While I say that I also reckon that Evarn should not be chopped to the bench. He has earned a starting spot with what he offered the team on saturday and on past performances.
As this game is across the ditch, I would also add that Sam will be the travelling 18th man.

Origin is draining, especially for a forward, let price have a rest. Form suffers when players are not fresh.

AmeriKiwi. Pricey is a renowned club leader, he has led the Bulldogs successfully out of major adversity.

He's a proven leader through and through.

I do however like the comraderie they showed last week, and regardless of whether Steve is there or not, that is the spirit that needs to remain at the core of the Vodafone Warriors. Those actions speak louder than any words - whether they be coach Cleary's words, of captain Price's words.

What about Price on the bench? Evarn starting the Crusaders have done it with Richie McCaw who came onto have a blinder, we could see an even higher quality period of football from him.

Bar how SOO turns out in a couple of days, I'd leave the team as it is. Hard decision raelly coz everyone was awsome on the weekend.
But this time around it's good that everyone impressed, that way you know as a coach that you've manged to put together aside that truely works and clics. Selection delimas are a pain but in this case; for the Warriros it's a good thing

I agree, Skinny, if it ain`t broke then don`t fix it... the Warriors played their bet game in a long time with last Saturday`s line-up, and they should keep things exactly the same for next week`s game.

I disagree. While it was a great win you guys are forgetting the Price has been our most consistent player and inspirational leader throughout the whole season.

I would bring him back in to start and not on the bench as I don't see him as an impact player.

I would probably put Evarn on the bench but he could start with Ruben playing a more impact type role.

But no way leaving Price out. He and Webb are our best players period, the addittion of him will strengthen the team, not diminish it.

i wouldnt mind starting with pricey and evarn in the front row and moving ruben into the second row. might add that bit of firepower we need. give sammy the bench spot and give luck a rest for a week. luck had the least impact of all the forwards last week (even though i think he is one of our more consistent players) i think a bench of gatis, anderson, guttenbiel and rapira would have a lot of impact
