"It's an opportunity for a couple of young guys to show us what they've got"

I find that you can pick up a fair bit from Potter without him actually saying too much. The guy does not lie, nor talk BS. Though it surprises me, I now think the rumour mill way well ring true this week regarding the debut of Moses (at least) and Lodge, following his above sentence after this mornings run at Leichhardt.

Having said that Luani and Austin have trained at hooker, I expect Moses to go to the back when Blake moves to the middle giving Joel a rest. If all goes well, he may stay on the field, but moving to finish the match in the six when Luani comes back on.

How do you drop Akoula? Dumbest thing to do when you have an inexperienced side.

Akauola has like 6 NRL matches and his defense is horrendous. He runs the ball really hard and straight and has a good offload, but we're short a front rower and he isn't a front rower. He's a winger/centre turned into a backrower.

Unless you'd rather him play than Halatau, in which case your argument is moot because Halatau is more experienced.
