Bring back Gamble
Or might as we get rid of him
What's the point of keeping a player if your not prepared to use him when we need a replacement
Time to stand tall or wait at the bus stop to catch a different bus
I don't get the hostility for Gamble. He had one opportunity in a game where we were significantly outplayed and our forwards were crap. He has played well from what I have seen in ISP and he deserves another shot.

I’ve watched him a fair bit in ISP. I have seen nothing to suggest he is a future first grader. He is not quick, does not seem to possess a slick passing game, plays way before the line and has an inconsistent kicking game.
Don’t get me wrong - if he’s picked I’ll cheer him on and I wish him well but I just don’t see it

I agree. I've watched quite a few ISP games this year and thought he looked really good early in the season when Drinkwater was his half. Drinkwater ran the team allowing Gamble free rein without responsibility for organisation. Since Drinkwater left he hasn't been the same player. I think he needs a Drinkwater type half to play his best and don't think he'd gel with Brooks who, to me, isn't an organising type of player.

Mbye to 5/8 and Heleta wo has had a lot of fullback experience to take that position in firsts.o fullback. Another important decision is will Fonua be ready for first grade this weekend.

The game is littered over 100 seasons of players that only crack 1 Game, or a few.

We aren't the Broncos. We will not get permission from the NRL to play someone outside the top 30.

Don't see Liddle weakening the spot myself - but then again you think he is too little don't you?
No, not little,
Just not as experienced and clever as Farah just yet
Whose little??
Nobody - are you on the sauce?
Always,, but you said , you thought someone said someone was Little,
And I thought that Liddle was little, but Geo told me previously, that Liddle wasn’t little ,so I must be a Liddle (sorry )little confused.
After giving it a little thought, I was just a little bit mixed up , as to whether we had a little Liddle in the team, or a Liddle who isn’t as little as some thought

Gamble should never be seen again.
Agreed and don't let the door hit him on the way out.
