Stupid if true. Not only is it a waste of interchanges but it just involves too much shuffling around of positions.
I think halatau will move into aloiais spot when he is ready to come off and play the rest of the game. Not really wasting an interchange. Will end up the same amount as if Farah started and halatau or aoliai was on the bench.
Yes that probably will happen but when Cherrington comes on that will be 2 interchanges used for the Rake plus another as he has only been playing 20-30mins...some one has to come off...if Taylor is going this way Cherrington's spot is better used by another back rower or Prop...

Maybe MCK is in for Cherry? Would make more sense than 2 hookers on the bench.

I'd prefer Halatau starting at 9 (DH) with Lovett and Chee Kam in the 2nd Row.
Bench ; Ava , Alioia, Edwards, Farah.
Farah to come on at the 20 minute mark. I'm just not sure on Edwards/ Chee Kam's freshness after NSW Cup.
This sort of line up would be similar to the first couple of games but hopefully stronger with Farah controls the game when we seem to slump around half time.
Ivan "Billy Beane from Moneyball" Cleary!
It's the Ivan of the tiger, It's the thrill of the fight...

can't see any good reason (other than JT trying to prove a point) not to start Farah at hooker, we have Cherrington on the bench.

I would replace Buchannan off the bench with either Edwards or Chee Kam whoever is fittest from the other day. Ideally I would play both and drop Lovett as well.

SCTiger, I think the idea is to reduce interchanges. If you want to swap hookers only once, is it more important to have Farah playing the beginning or the end of the game?

Whats the point if we have 2 specialist hookers?

Would only make sense if Cherrington started or is replaced on the bench. Would not Make sense to start both Farah and Cherrington on the bench and Dene at hooker.

Cherrington provides better and quicker service than Dene and should be in the squad.

I would start Robbie for the first 25 minute than let Cherrington play to about 55-60 minute mark and Robbie the rest. No need to have Dene at hooker at all.

Parra can be a hit n miss side away from Pirtek.
Cubs have shot out to early leads every game this year, Farah will be key they don't lose their marbles this time around.

Brilliant move - with Halatau staring in the 9 we take 3 hookers into the game :roll:

One very unique decision. A third forward could have been used in this game.

This is one of the strangest calls he has made , if they lose the media will jump on this ! I have watched our state cup side play this week and there are better options available then what he is picking in first grade . He sure knows how to create pressure on himself . Has there ever been 2 specialist hookers start an nrl game on the bloody bench ? All you can do is laugh really
