Lolohea playing at 5/8?

Post by Talking Tiger » Sat 27 May, 2017 3:42 pm

Great news that Lolohea is finally joining us.

Do you think he will slot straight into the 5/8 position?

How does everyone think he will go?

I am looking forward to the game!

I would say he will slot straight in.

I am not expecting anything special to start with but I do expect his fitness and confidence to improve every week.

Should slot straight in at 5/8, not expecting him to be the saviour. Should get better and more confident as the season goes on.

My dream wish would be that Teddy cant back up from origin. Lolo plays 1 and Rankin kills it at 6. Then Clearly puts Teddy on the wing for rest of the year. Whatadream

Can't say I know what KS was thinking, but maybe he meant Teddy gets rested? Not an uncommon thing after Origin.

Thats why i said cant back up, rather then injury. I did not wish harm on him. Appreciate the comment Vanilla Thunder.

Tedesco should be dropped from the next game for i'll discipline in getting sent to the sin bin..

If Cleary is consistent it was good enough for Seumanufagai ..it should apply to anyone in the team if that's the message he wants to set with team Culture...

I wouldn't be surprised if he's on the bench

If we're running a bench hooker we can't carry a bench 5/8th as well. That would leave us with two interchange forwards, and then we might as well invite Jason Taylor back.

Either Lolohea starts, or he gets a week in NSW cup to trial 80 minutes in the halves. I'm ok for Littlejohn or Rankin to get another week in firsts if that's what needs to happen. I'm expecting Littlejohn, Rankin and Lolohea to all be named somewhere in the 21, along with an extra prop to possibly cover Woods. Cleary will hold off making the call as long as possible.

Lolahea could just as easily start at fullback replacing Tedesco, anything could happen Wednesday night.

I seriously can't imagine that the club has gone to all the trouble of getting Lolohea released early, only to put him in reserves - even if it it's only for a week. I'd be shocked if he doesn't run out as 5/8 on Saturday unless SOO casualties force some positional changes.
