Official side v Bulldogs

Unread post by tigertye » Tue 15 Jul, 2014 9:55 pm

Wow Lulia in the side again!!! On the wing!!! Won't that just strike fear into his opposition winger. With all that speed, agility and great defence and ability under a high ball, why wouldn't they be scared. Far out I hope that's a smokey from Potter.

With respect to 2nd tier cap, Koro's departure should allow another player to come through like Hytchcox or Taukafa.
Hard to imagine Leilua could keep up with Simona if breaks the line.

Fine was promoted to the top squad recently from memory. I don't see how our second tier could be that tight considering we've normally had a top tier player return from injury the games after another top tier player was injured. Who would be second tier that has played this year? Akoula, Lodge maybe? We released BMM and Koro so surely we replaced them in the top tier?

Criticism is well and truly justified IMO in regards to Lulia. I haven't seen him offer anything this year.

This is going to be a bloodbath.

That backline is almost comedic and with Des' big backline player choices of late, it will get ugly. Looking forward to next year fellas

I'd almost be prepared to say stuff it and roll with 17 forwards.

He's kidding right
It's an extended bench on the expectation that not everyone will get the OK to play. I wouldn't read too much into the numbers. What I'm afraid of is Halatau moving into the backline if Richards isn't passed fit. That's going to be ugly with both wingers out.

If we hang onto the ball, get a fair go with penalties, get a roll on with our forwards, and get good play the ball speed watch Farah and Moses cut the big bulldog forwards to shreds.

Potter has sent a letter to Archer outlining his concerns namely teams slowing our play the balls down and farah not being rewarded for finding markers offside (there must have been or 4 occasions against Manly where we could have git a penalty).

You got to remember in our last few games we have beaten ourselves through poor ball control, against teams completing at a high rate and being favoured by the penalty count.

Only change to NSW Cup team is Corey Brown in at halfback for Michael Stevens.
So it looks like no changes to the NRL team then unfortunately.

Madden and Farlow will be the halves. Fine to backrow. Brown to centres. Was only written as Brown at 7 so they didn't have to write names and numbers all over the place.

Akaoula drops off the bench. My thinking is Patty didn't pass the fitness test and he will play centre tomorrow with Lawrence pushing to the wing.

Yeah very unusual. Apparently Stevens has a groin strain.
Now they are saying Farlow to 6, Madden to 7, Fine to 2nd row and Brown in the centres.

I also just noticed that Aku has dropped off the bench.

Halatau drops off the bench and Sue has been added to it. No other changes.

Would be stupid to have Lulia on the wing instead of Simona.
