We need a good dummy half out there. Halatau can do the job for part of the game because Robbie is out. Still that is a decent team considering who we have out.

Geez we have some good forwards this year. Grant/Sue/Felise and Ava are our prop rotation with Woods out.

It's a tough game though.

As expected, was going to be tough even if our Origin guys were available. Hope the boys are fired up and play the full 80

Needs to get his workate up. When he starts making 12+ hitups per game, I'd reconsider him. Containing the Bulldogs in the middle will be the hard part. They destroyed our forwards a few weeks back so it's redemption time. Line speed in defence will be key this week.
I thought he wasn't back until Rd 19 ??

If we find a way to beat the Dogs , it could be arguably be one of our greatest victories ever as a club

The joke for so long was that we were a team with too many hookers and now we find ourselves here......

Best team we could have picked this week Imo.

Not being negative here, would love the win - depends which Tigers team turns up.

However the main thing is "damage control" - it is imperative that we control our for/against numbers. I think we can win enough games to get to the eight but if we don't reduce that deficit - it could be the thing that puts us out.

Rankin rolled his ankle today and is in doubt.

It's ridiculous that we don't have a realistic backup hooker option. Taylor is not a dummy half and as others have rightfully stated our attack is diminished with him there.....Either Liddle or Cherrington should have been picked. Is Edwards doing anything good in NSW Cup to deserve being made 18th man?

I've seen Edwards playing a couple of times in the past 6 weeks & he has been solid, again this is only in NSW cup though so whether he brings that to 1sts is a different matter.

Not good. So maybe Simona to FB & MCK left centre if needed? Or Heleta debuts at FB?

if Rankin is out, Hunt or Haleta to FB? As Haleta had issues with bombs, Hunt is probably a beter option, so:
Hunt
Nofoaluma
Simona
Naiqama
Addo-Carr
We shall play Liddle or Cherrington at 9, and certainly not ET or Halatau. :sign:

Can't believe we are going into a game without a hooker

JAC should go to 1 if Rankin is out.

Liddle is in the Blues 20s squad, can he still play?
