6 Moses
2 Nofoaluma
3 Simona
4 Naquima
5 Addo-Carr
12 Lawrence
7 Brooks
8 Grant
9 Halatua
15 Seumunifungai
11 Alioia
13 Taylor
10 Sue

14 Felise
16 Lovett
17 Chee-Kam
19 Littlejohn who can share d/h role
Its a bit of a jigsaw but it may work.
X2 excepting Liddle for Littlejohn if he is available. Lawrence to 5/8 to stiffen defence and with ET frequently playing first receiver then Moses moving to fullback should not affect the team's fluency but also add more punch/speed than what Rankin can provide from the back.

Why do some forum members go into fantasy land ?
Some of the suggestions here makes me giggle.

Next i will hear someone say Brooks for PM.

Let me suggest myself for Full Back on Saturday.

I think that JT said today that Rankin trained with the side today and they are confident that he'll play tomorrow.

I did get a giggle out of some of the suggestions in this thread. Thank goodness most of us are not the coach.

20.5 start might be more appropriate

I'd go Moses at 1 Lawrence at 6

I know this is from left field for a hooker if we are concerned about Liddle lack of experience , anyone think Sironen could handle hooker solely as ball distributor ??

Occasionally you have to channel your inner Sheenius. If there was ever a time, the time is now.
I'm currently levitating and asking the gods "what would they do" they are pointing To the Northern Hemsphere,
Is Sheens there?

Bring back Johnny Cronk and throw him into the custodian role for today!

My point was and always has been to pick Liddle or Cherrington first and foremost

But if they are concerned with the lack of experience from those options , none of the others have remotely worked bar 25 minutes of Halatau starting

You can see the difference it makes having a proper hooker out there. I like Halatau. I reckon he does a great job. I just don't think he does a great job for 60-80 minutes.

Rankin is so pedestrian it isnt funny. Our attack breaks down every time Brooks or Moses go to him. His bombed try was disgraceful and the 2 passes he threw in the last 5 minutes summed it all up.

Cost us the game dropping the kick from Ado Carr imo. Was really bad in attack tonight and for a former half his ball skills were really poor

Yes he didn't have the best of games, I somehow wonder how fit he was??
I don't think he cost us the game but he didn't make up for his error which was unfortunate. There was little or no second faze that he could work off late in the game.
Well its nearly time to have a 'CRACK'....Go you :sign:

Plus the 2 poor attempts at tackles that let in trys, I mean he tries hard, but he is not a first grader, if he was he wouldn't have been in the ESL, and and some other team would have bought him back before this year.
He made his debut in 2008 and has 31 NRL games, 14 with us this year, say's it all really.
