What edge does vunivalu play on?

We definetly can't have Kev & Nofo defending under the high ball against him...

Then on the other side is JAC who we can't afford to have slow defenders or leave massive gaps in our defence...
Don't think he'll be playing, fractured his eye socket I think, and Munster is also out with a broken jaw.

builds pressure. plays simple footy.
gets repeat sets of 6.
kicks deep and to the corners.
defends like there is no tomorrow.
does not push the pass, when not needed.
rises to the challenge of adversity, and overcomes it.

The love on this site for Mitchell Moses continues to amaze me. Nine tackles missed this game, more than anyone else ( Brooks missed two).Moses is a very poor defender and this aspect of his game has not improved.Not saying Brooks is anything special, but his defence has improved. Moses mostly puts up aimless bombs ,hardly a skill.His attack is good sometimes but not often enough. Bite the bullet and let him go . We could spend the money then on the players we really need.

We tend to play well against the Storm - although I feel the team is too far gone and rocked this week to get a win, I think they will be much more competitive.

Webster will get them doing no nonsense stuff, and lets be honest, he won't care about dropping or selection players - strictly has nothing to lose - never know we may see some accountability and changes.

I know there are those who will say we have no-one in reggies to swap in, as they are getting flogged - I think it's attitude - players in state cup who have thought for a while that players above them will never be dropped, now are probably chomping at the bit for a chance.

Two competitive losses to them last year, and a decent W/L record at home before that - we win 60% at home vs these guys.

I'll probably still tip the Storm come Thursday, however wouldn't be surprised at all if we get up.

You have to earn a promotion to FG it should be harder to get in then get out.

NSW cup have lost 3 in a row by 50 so none of them deserve a spot.

Keep the same side plus ET, Idris and Ballin coming back from injury and give them a chance under a new coach and see what happens

People can play well in a badly beaten team. I haven't seen any of the State Cup games so I wouldn't know, but the commentators in the last game were giving Jordan Grant plenty of compliments.

I'm looking forward to the team announcement this week. Hopefully Webster makes some changes and sends a rocket up a lot of these idiots

Jordan grant deserves a shot, he looks the goods. Some players just need that one chance and they will grab it. We cant keep saying we dont drop players becasue we have no one to replace them with.

It will be very interesting to see who Webster picks. Not sure there is much choice given the results of the reggies the past 3 weeks.
Still, some changes will be made, surely - the current team selections certainly ain't working.

Make Tedesco Captain.

It's not as if Woodsy goes and challenges the refs anyway - at least give the captaincy to someone smart, articulate, and who has a great read on the game. Woods can be the spiritual leader from the front by showing it.... at the front.

Get Woods back to focusing on rumbling forward with footwork at the line.

1. James Tedesco
2. David Nofaloma
3. Moses Suli
4. Watson Heleta
5. Kevin Naqama
6. Mitch Moses
7. Luke Brooks - lets see what these guys can do with Taylor now not there.
8. Aaron Woods
9. Liddle
10. Ava Seumanafagi
11. Suaso Sue
12. Chris Lawrence
13. Elijah Taylor

14. Tatola
15. Tim Grant
16. Jj Felise/Paseka
17. Josh Aloiai

18. MCK
19. Idris
20. Tatola

Play simple hard angry direct footy - we always seem to unsettle the Storm a bit.
