Fifita injured

Post by willow » Tue 13 May, 2014 7:00 am

Fifita rolled his ankle last night and will miss 6-8 weeks. Also puts a big dent in Cronulla's go forward and second phase play.

Not only is Andrew Fifita injured apparently Wade Graham has cracked ribs. Anways we will hopefully smash them this week and get back to our best.

Hopefully Woods leads the NSW forward pack to a series win and becomes a permanent fixture in the team for years to come.

Did Lewis play and if so how did he go - NSW May need him.

Damn I knew Tigers at 2.25 was a good deal on Sunday night.
After Farah is confirmed today I expect us to be pretty firm favourites.
Need that points differential back to the healthy zone.

Played in the 6 jersey ,didn't watch the whole game but solid would probably cover his performance from what I saw

About time the pendulum turned our way! We've been up against full strength teams with half of ours missing, for weeks know. Feel sorry for Fifita, but glad he and Graham? won't be there next week.

NSW, on the other hand, is becoming decimated - we could end up with a whole new team on the field in game one! Mightn't be a bad idea considering the past 8 years :lol:
Sooner or later, next year has to be this year - Ricksen

He was short of a run , he was not that impressive IMO and certainly not a 5/8, having not seen Ryan for a while he is a very light weight as in weight winger ....compared to the winger stocks running around.

I heard a rumor that Tupau is injured? I hope its BS but it will definitely hurt our own go forward.

As a NSW supporter I'm gutted that Fifita is injured. I mean yes, it's great that we have a big advantage now against the Sharks but gahhhh DAMN QUEENSLANDERS!

Tupou is on report for a back slam on Ma'u which left him heavily concussed.

Speaking of Cronulla I see Arona is off contract at the end of 2014

Thoughts ??

They are going like busteds at the moment, no fifita or Grahem will hurt them, backing up from a monday night thumping against a physical Parra.
It is all working in our favour, it is definitely a should win game!

In the old days a Brisbane team in origin was really weak, looking at this side who will be missing,

Parker, Gillett, Thaiday and Hodges (who never plays anyway) is a fair bit, but we will miss Farah and Woods, not too much difference given we lose a key position player.

I had to google Syndesmosis. It involves tearing tissue off the bone, and sounds excruciatingly painful.

Are we talking about OUR Taupau or THEIR Tupou (or both)?

How could you be confused? both guys names are spelt differently, and Ma'u plays for Parra who the Sharks played last round.
