A better side than i was expecting to see given injuries and Origin tbh. We'll still need a lot of luck though. Despite what some say about the Panthers, they are a really solid side. I predicted at the start of the yr they'd be a top 4 side. They've been building for 3 yrs, even since they signed Cleary, the most underrated coach in the comp. Anyone who expected anything less from them, clearly didn't see how Cleary went at the Warriors. Still the only coach to ever get something out of that club. Consistent finalists under him, which they weren't before he was there, and haven't been since.

But anyway, like i said we'll need a lot of luck. Definitely not beyond us though.

If we don't get dicked by 30 points then I'm not here. We will be relying heavily on a defensive effort and while the intent and attitude is there this year, it won't be enough to stop an onslaught.

Mansour will be hurting after being overlooked for Origin as well for McManus.

We can only hope that Potter is pulling a shifty and protecting Moses from the media.

Moses to fullback, Austin to the bench (to play 5/8 and hooker), Halatau to hooker, and Joel back to NSW Cup.

Potter doesn't strike me as the type to pull media stunts like this...but I hope you are right

I hope to see these late changes:

* Buchanan to start & Taupau bench
* Luani to NSW Cup
* Halatau start hooker, Auto bench
* Moses fullback
* If Potter is feeling generous, Fine to centre, drop Lulia.

Their will be no changes, this Potters idea of playing safe. Even if we dont win another game for another month Potter will still persist with his tried and trusted and keep picking plodders. I do feel for him with our injury toll but on the other hand you at least got to pick a team that can keep the score board ticking. The old South QLD Crushers would beat this team and that is saying somthing

Late mail suggests Moses will start at fullback, Austin will drop to the bench and I'm not sure who will drop off the bench. Possibly Halatau?

damn everywhere it says moses is all set to debut.

i hope not. there is no point in having halatau and austin on the bench. i hope we run out 1-17 unless tim simona miraculously recovers.

That's an extremely light bench that lacks impact. Hope to atleast see Ava start instead of taupau. Or aka replace Buchanan.

Is Buchanan available to play after being named for the NSW Cup rep team?

I'm concerned Potter is going to run with a bench of only one front rower (Semanufagai) and use Halatau in the backrow.

Thinking Moses comes into the 1 and we run with a bench of Halatau, Semanufagai, Akaoula and Austin. Going to mean plenty of minutes for Taupau.

Think we need another front rower on the bench, give Lodge a crack!
