1. Moses - Cam play a Tedesco role and just pop up in those 3 on 2 cases and use his pace
2. Nofaluma
3. Naquima
4. Simona
5. Ado-Carr

6. Lawrence- We need him on that right side giving us really an extra forward and giving the spotlight to Brooks which he usually does well once given that control
7. Brooks

I believe a line up like this can beat the dogs if they all play well

No..
Liddle is not in the Blues u20 squad. Same as Felise, only he was named in first grade.

Both are highly likely to play first grade this week. I don't have anything concrete on this but you wouldn't pull a kid from junior Origin for nothing.

As much as I dislike putting Lawrence at 6, moving Moses to 1 would be the best option. He plays similar to a fullback anyway, and he started some games in 2014 there and did well (ironically against the Bulldogs). That way, his shocking reads in defence won't be sighted (hopefully) and he can chime in whenever he wants.

Would also like to see how Brooks controls the side without Moses at 6.

Geo has already stated what will happen if Rankin is injured, Hunt will play fullback.

Not so sure now Willow with the withdrawal of Liddle may change the plans...We may see something like Simona at FB Chee-Kam in the centres and Liddle on the bench...

Rankin is still 50/50 to play...

Either way expect changes... ;)

It's pretty tough for a player who hasn't been training at fullback to go 80 minutes in the NRL in that spot. The amount of running during the game requires a lot more stamina than any other spot.

While I'm glad Liddle is making his debut, I'm disappointed to see that it was chee-kam that had to make way.

Hope Jacob has a ripper game

Hope we can give the Bulldogs a run for their money in the forwards. It won't be much fun for Liddle if we get belted around the ruck.

Good news.

It will be interesting how coach Taylor rotates the hookers. Surely Liddle can't be expected to do a 60 min stint so maybe Halatau will expect a longer first stint from him this game. Or Liddle might play the middle stint with Halatau back to hooker later in the game?

I guess it depends on how Liddle is handling things at the time.

There was really nothing to lose by blooding him tonight. He won't lose us the match. Now ET can play his natural game and we have a specialist dummy half. Let's see what the kid's got.

I think that this is good news. We need a hooker on the field. What has happened to Cherrington though ?
