Backing up after Origin starting Farah from the bench would make sense.

Plus it worked well enough against Souths so I'm comfortable with that being the plan for this week.

Farah might not be a great 80 minute player anymore like he was back in the day.

We can't really answer that question until after SOO 2 can we

IF NSW has a 50% completion rate and Farah makes 60 + tackles you'd have to see how he pulled up before making a call either way

I'd say he will be fine , having all those rests in the in goal area all night should help ;)

Depending on how the SOO goes if Farah is fit it might be a good idea to bring him up to the challenge of playing Smith again.
If NSW loose the Farah will have a point to prove if NSW win Farah may get Smith slightly off focus giving the team a little lift.

Didn't Farah get knocked to Disneyland once again last night?

yep I would say we won't see Robbie this week. Can't imagine any club allowing a player to play only 3 and a half days after a concussion.

Be interesting to see who comes in and how we change the team around.

Wouldn't mind seeing Liddle get a run off the bench but 2nd tier cap would be starting to bite I imagine so might have to go with Taylor and Halatau

Please, not Taylor at dummy half again. Such a negative selection. If playing Liddle is going to cause a 2nd tier cap problem why can't Cherrington play first grade.

he's already played this year so it should be fine with 2nd tier cap i think

hasnt been super effective, i think he's on the outter and we're putting our money on liddle for the future

I agree with you on Taylor, he is such a good 1st receiver and not a great dummy half, so its a double whammy, we loose at great 1st receiver and get a average dummy half!!

Opponents have worked out that you only need to touch our boys on the head to send them off the field for at least 20min.
All for players welfare but but seems our club the only one that cares.

For all the talk on here anti Farah and i wasn't happy with what happened with Potter he still si our best hooker.
Wasn't long ago people said Cherrington was a future international. And Halatau! What does he offer in attack?

Sad if Farah is out really dent our upset chances.

I would not be playing him if he registered a concussion.

Not anti-Farah sentiment, after what happened to Fults I wouldn't wish that on any other player. Wouldn't like to know we placed the result on one game over a players welfare.

"medical team and taylor" have ruled him out.

hope cherry comes on to the bench. JT may not think so, but we do need a specialist hooker.

Yeah we definitely do. Farah being out is going to hurt us big time.

The worst move in my view would be ET to hooker for a large chunk of the game, but I fear that's what we're going to see.

Doubts on Halatau as well...

I can see Elijah in there with Lovett spending time defnding in the middle with Chee-Kam onto the Bench...

Not my option would much prefer a specialist 9 in Cherrington..
