I have been one of the blokes bagging Farah, but if he was fit, I would have started with Halatau at hooker, ET lock. Lovett/MCK, Farah, Felise & Sau on the bench.

Funny, though, crap load of hookers and none get picked

We also have Teddy back, he often plays like a 3rd playmaker

Aw man we need this win so much. I'm more worried about our conversions. Due to the weather I think this game is going to be very close and will come down to penalties goals, conversions etc. I just hope Moses has been practicing his tail off.
Could be another field goal special!
Tigers tragic since 1980.

I'm beginning to think this would have been a perfect game for Farah to play.
Unfortunately we didn't know the conditions would be so bad.
It won't be a fast game that's for sure
Another kicking option other than Mitch & Luke would be nice... Could be crucial

Agree Ink. This is type of scrappy, defensive game Farah would excel at dag nammit

idk if it's JT"s fault or what it is, these many disruptions just cannot be good. so angry.
Relax, JT obviously has a plan.
He clearly wants to tighten up the middle for the first part of the game.
JT has a plan?
I feel better than ever now :D

Was that the plan. Play arguably our best player in a completely different position, not even have the SOO hooker at all , and when he finally come to his senses, and moved ET back to where he has made a difference for us, then play Halatau sadly no longer up to it, at hooker.
I said before the game that this could blow up on him and it has.
I hope that notice was taken of this incompetent game plan.
