Cmon boys let go to Melbourne and give them a red hot game.

Spoiling Slaters 300th would nearly be as good as watching Tedesco trudge off a loser last week.

You'd be a mug to drop anyone from the side that beat the premiership favorites.

Nice to see Aloiai back in the mix and Gamble with half a chance (pun intended).
Totally agree , the boys earned the chance to prove they can back it up against the defending premiers

A repeat of Rd 1 performance and I imagine we will al be happy , win , lose or draw

That was inspirational stuff , bought a tear to the old bugger's eye , I never thought I'd see my WT's play like that

Aloiai in for MCK and we’re good to go.
I’m sure this will happen!

Surely to mix it up a bit Gamble gets 14 and Aloiai replaces MCK. The other option is ET moves to hooker to rest God and you play Aloiai at 14. The CLaw and MCK can cover the backs. I don’t think Kev and MWZ will be able to cope with the amount of traffic headed their way.

Why does last year matter?
Naiquimama wasn't as bad as some make out. Last week.
Wingers rushing in happens in most games... It's what clever attack creating an extra man does

No surprises with that squad although hopefully Aloiai gets a run. I thought starting with Packer and Eiso worked well, with Matulino and Twal off the bench. I would prefer to go that way for the balance of experience but nothing seems to bother Eiso and Twal so hopefully we don't lose out with that bench rotation.

Pretty sure Chee-Kam has trained exclusively in the backrow this offseason so I can't see Ivan dropping Kev to make way for him in the centres. Hopefully Taane Milne has a red hot crack in ISP this week.

Our biggest challenge this week will be the mental challenge of being "up" for the Storm.
I also prefer the front row combinations from last week but maybe he wants us to go out there and bruise them early this week, try to put them off their game with some intimidation.
Wasn't Matulino named to start against the Rorters and Eisenhuth on the bench in the Team listed Tuesday...?

This.
He's always been average. I'm not waiting for losses before criticizing the selection. Keeping Nof out and Kev in is just poor.

Ivan may have his reasons that we dont know about....we won our first game against very good opposition,Noffa wasnt in that side...I trust our coach and his desicions....

Yeah but I don't see why he'd bother playing shenanigans week in, week out with the team naming.

Your scraping the barrel now mate !
I don’t think so. Everyone would prefer Suli over Kev, but the guy refused to train. Where as a guy like Kev obviously puts in. Why shouldn’t he be rewarded?
why don't we just rename this forum to "Weekly Blog with GnR"? :master:

you post like you are Paul Kent answering questions to all the serfs who hold his opinion in such high regard, only with far more contemptuous responses....
Hey Paul Kent’s alright. I’m just glad you didn’t compare me to that flea James Hooper, then I would have really been offended :lol:
:D thanks for taking it in good spirits GnR.
Good on you.

I was really hoping with ivans standards
Naiqama would have been dropped, you can guarantee Melbourne will will get points though him.

Ivan has kept Kev in the side....that seems to be Ivans standard....why change a winning team because some supporters dislike Kev in the team...If Ivan who we all respect as a good coach,keeps Kev in the side,then he must have his reasons...

I'm surprised Ferguson ran over 200 metres last week and nobody is calling for his opposite to be dropped.
I know Thompson had a good game last week, and MWZ puts everything in, but neither of our wingers would be anywhere near being guaranteed starters in most teams.
Wish we had have picked up a bit of pace and size like the 2 guys they are lining up against this week.

He didn’t rush in when Fergo scored he picked the wrong man and doubled up with brooks and left Manu wide open to set up their try.
He had a few handling errors and wasnt threatening in attack.
Some people’s opinion is there might be someone else who can play left centre that is a bit tighter in D than Kev.
As I said above when he is on he is red hot but it’d be nice to have a bloke who’s red hot every week.

Thompson won the game for us!!!!!
He defused a few critical moments in the game broke the line twice.
Didn’t concede a point down his edge.
What more can you ask from a winger.

CK about a third of his yards were when he cut us up the guts when Twal got called offside early in the 2nd half and listened to the ref

Listening to refs , how absurd
