Cant wait to get ailoia and liddle back and full fitness. I know lawrence wont be dropped but a forward pack of this would be lethal.

Cant drop rochow after last weeks performance. Thought he was our best actually. Didnt realise how big he was too.
Agree, that is easily our strongest pack and would be competitive against just about anyone.

Bring Aloia on after the sting has gone out of the defence and run him at their smaller players once isolated.

We create a problem if we replace Naiqama with MCK , we lose lateral speed out wide

Playing Melbourne with Vunivalu and JAC out wide lacking lateral movement is a massive risk defensively , remember the Penrith game when Lawrence was moved to centres and we got annihilated out wide

So Cleary has to weigh up this , keep Naiqama and hope he can make the right calls defensively or bring in MCK and hope he doesn't get caught out laterally

Just remember who we are playing , one C Smith

He will be looking at this either way and thinking win / win for the Storm .

For me I take the risk that Kev gets it right , because if Naiqama makes bad calls or Vunivalu or JAC get on our outside we are defensively screwed
Agree with the sentiment of what saying but wasn’t it Lovett who got burnt by the Panthers?

Twinged at training today, not thought as serious waiting I results, if a miricale happens he might still play but 99.9% out. Marsters or Marshall to kick.

If Nofo plays then we will see if he can defend any better this year
He will want to make the most of his inclusion
I would rather Gamble in the starting side at centre
Kev to wing
Thompson to fullback

Disappointing if true. Was keen to see Lolo turn it on against the cheats.

Thanks for the straight forward info Pom. Much appreciated and a great change from the bullcrap hints from others.

I’d have Twal start over Aloiai.
With Packer Mataluino and Rochow there’s loads of size experience and skill to open a game.
There also the guys you want on at the backend of the game.
Have Aloiai and Eiso to rotate, two relatively young and big motors keep up the intensity.
I feel if Mahe Fonua is in form keep him on the bench to cover the back row and backline.
And keep a second dummy half/five eighth(Gamble/Reynolds)to cover liddle if he’s not up for eighty, Otherwise Id have Lawrence as last bench spot.

I hope a team similar this runs out at some stage this year.

Back luck for Lolohea being ruled out however Thompson will show plenty of enthusiasm and Nofo will certainly aid our go forward in getting out of our half, plus his offload ability will complement Marsters on the right edge. Our second phase play will be crucial if we're going to trouble the Storm.
