General Webb to miss the Knights game?

Warriors fullback Brent Webb missed Warriors training last night with a shoulder injury.

However, a scan has failed to reveal any major problem and he should be fit to play the Knights on Sunday at Ericsson Stadium.

I would say they will put Ropati or at an outside chance Martin there if webb pulled out

tony martin is the only team member who can play fullback so no webb it must be tony martin, a rookie would cost us the game/

Allow me to translate... :p

Jerome Ropati to fullback;
Nathan Fien to standoff;
Lance Hohaia to hooker;
Clinton Toopi to the bench.

I dont think we will see wholesale changes for 1 player though sadly. I think that Cleary will shift someone already in the team into fullback seeing as how he shifted Martin to the Wing when Manu was out. So looks like Martin might be the fullback or Ropati and maybe Hohaia straight to 5-8th with Gatis being called back?

And Rovelli?

I would say that Martin would be the best option, but I have a suspicion that if Webb was not there that Ropati would play fullback, as he has previously played there for the Warriors and the Kiwis.

Tajhay put Rovelli to standoff. ;)

If Webb goes, I expect Ropati to shift there, for the same reason as that given by w4l.

if webb is ruled out they will make as little disruptions as possible also toopi is on standby so im assuming they will move martin to fullback and toopi straight into the centers.
