JT has changed the team as per what was reported on here. Honestly I don't have any problems with it but it's interesting that he has gone for a bigger bench rather than playing Chee Kam.

It makes sense to me because the idea is to give Cherrington a rest especially at the start. I have no idea how Lovett will perform though at dummy half. The poor guy was crucified when he was played in the centres.

Lovett would be about $1.20 to knock on from dummy half at some stage.
$1.01 to not get there in time for the play the ball.

Lovett is slow....

Maybe they're expecting him to be like Halatau.
Second rower who has good defense and can play hooker.
Doubt it though.

I think Littlejohn will spend time at DH in attack...Lovett will defend in the middle for the 1st 20-25...With the heat run the Warriors around then introduce a fresh Cherrington to take advantage...

Why not just let Cherrington start - you know, play our actual hooker AT hooker. I know it sounds like a crazy and far fetched idea but bare with me here. If Cherrington starts to get tired, THEN bring Lovett on to cover for him for 15 minutes or so.
Maybe I'm thinking too far outside the box...

He is only there to bolster the defence in the middle for the first 20 mins - Cherry comes on when their big guys are tiring. People on here were worried how Mania would hold up in defence early. -

Exactly. Littlejohn at DH and 6 running forwards. Trying to keep it tight early on. Cherry will b on after 20min. Hope it works

I never had doubts we would win this game.

The warriors have too many new players. You can't get quality players that don't fit the way a club plays...

I have been one of the people putting the boot into Lovett on this forum but I will put my hand up and give credit where credit is due and say I was impressed with how much better his game was today compared to last years efforts... Well done to him I hope he keeps it up
