WESTS Tigers Team V Dragons

Post by fergiefurr » Mon 16 Mar, 2015 11:51 am

If taupau is out aswell as lodge I'd expect Buchanan and Lovett to come onto the bench and santi or halatau to start at lock.

I can't imagine JT bringing Lovett in for Lodge. It would give us a bench of 3 back rowers/utility players.

Although the only snipet I've seen on taupau being out is on here.

Spewing if Taupau is out. I'd rather see Buchanan come onto the bench in favor of Lovett to replace Lodge, I don't think we lose too much in that regard as Buchanan has looked really strong to start the season. With Taupau and Lodge on the bench we definitely held the advantage over the Dragons. Without them...not so much.

Wasn't there a rumour last week that Taupau wasn't going to play against the Titans?
Hopefully it's just that false rumour resurfacing.

Dean should come on for Taupau at lock then move to dumby half if Robbie takes a short spell.
Sue should be are impact of the bench. He can cover most positions in the forwards.

Only thing wrong with that is that Sue doesn't have much impact. He's probably the most disappointing bloke of all our forwards, and has been since the beginning of last season.
He hasn't come up to expectations for a long while.
Agree with you though about starting Santi.

Defensively Sue's been pretty good.
Sirro running the ball looks like a handful for the defence,as he can get the ball way. So he often attracts a couple defenders. Santi was very busy in both defensive and attack.
Santi can play long minutes as well. IMO Santi has jumped Sue for a starting 2nd spot.
in Ivan we distrust

Going by the video Tim Simona just posted on facebook of himself and Taupau getting massages captioned "Prep before game" I would say they are both playing.

What evidence or official report if any was there to suggest Taupau wasnt going to play.

Any answer that doesnt include Facebook or Twitter would be greatly appreciated.

Looks like I owe Sue an apology for my comment this afternoon. I thought his first half tonight was the best I've seen from him. He ran and tackled like he meant it , and seemed to be a lot better in attack. I hope there's a lot more of it.
