Not a chance in hell that Kev will stick to his sideline.....1st minute of the game South's will shift it left, Fro will have a panic attack and rush in off his wing yet again and Inglis will crawl over on his belly from 20 metres out. Yippee, can't wait for that. :brick: :brick: :brick: :brick: :brick: :brick: :brick: :deadhorse: :deadhorse: :deadhorse: :deadhorse: :deadhorse: :deadhorse: :deadhorse:

I don't know why I bother checking the team every Tuesday expecting to see anything different

I don't mind having JAC there, last week wasn't a day for wingers( or anyone for that matter, as far as I'm concerned he's shown more ability than any other winger so I'm prepared to give him another run. We may as well get some return for the peanuts we pay him.
Also pleased that Sanity made a call here again, and our best hooker is there, sadly I think it will all be in vain, as I wouldn't mind betting that Souths will have a point to prove

He would hold his position if Moses could tackle. I think Kevs as nervous as a sheep in NZ when it hears a zipper.
Yup.
One way or another he is going to get rammed.

JT needs to knock a big star picket into the ground on Kev's sideline, attach some fishing line with a massive sharp hook on the end and hook it through Fro's foreskin to keep him from screaming in off his wing at every opportunity. If that fails then I'm outta ideas.

I reckon that this is tough on Naiqama and Grant but I think that this is what should happen for a while at least.

Didn't expect anything different. JJ should be on the bench for halatau and MCK should be taking kevs spot.

Addo-Carr should be there. He is probably the best winger in the club and definitely the best winger on that side of the field.

I reckon Halatau is great. He hits in defence consistently and can belt it up. Deserves his spot. He can also play on the edge. Felise is a prop and not an edge player.

Looks like Robbie really was rested last week... JT showing concern after a tough origin outing.

Maybe Addo Carr isn't really gone.. JT might think that by continuing to play him, he'll backflip and decide to stay haha.

This might be true. I listened to the press conference which caused all the drama and Taylor didn't state anything derogatory towards Farah.

With hindsight it was probably the wrong decision but I can see why he did it.

On NRL 360 they just said that Dene trained as starting hooker today and that Robbie trained afterwards with the reserves...What the hell?

I think Jason Taylor is self destructing

I thought the rest was a no brainer TBH.
Tough origin, 80 mins, 50+tackles in average conditions.
Four days later in that quagmire on tired legs
Five day turnaround after the quagmire, do it again.

3 tough games in 9 days. An outside back or winger? Maybe. Not a forward.

This way he is completely fresh and motivated for Souths. Lets just see how he goes.
