The first and only time Reynolds played first grade this year he ran out of puff very early. With him not haven't played in the weeks since then I can't see that he is any fitter at this point in time. That is something the team cannot afford. Liddle for example is being selected in first grade and playing only limited time due to his persistant fitness/injury problems.

I doubt Tui would be fit enough to play no1 after only 2 games in reserves. As for Benji, I think he is struggling but that is more about our forwards not setting a platform. We badly need a couple of mid week quality signings

Thompson has shown plenty of ticker but we need a fullback with the ability to worry the opposition in attack. Seriously hoping it is a Kev/Barba swap in the wind.

Benji struggling is because Benji thinks he is 24 again.

Crabbing across field and popping the ball up to the closest player every single time its so predictable. Kicking on the 4th and making stupid decisions is his own fault.

I don’t want to be a Benji hater but he makes it hard not to be.

He has got to go.

Unfortunately Liddle has already shown that he is not robust enough to play in the middle, call the experiment a failure and look somewhere else, Sue is not a good enough player for the rest of the team to play a man short frequently, Grant is as good , no HIA history to my knowledge

Liddle can handle it - don't you worry about that.

If he can't we are up .... Creek without a paddle.

Thank you. At last some common sense. Benji is not error free - granted. But when you’re getting smashed up the middle, it’s hard to be effective.

And yes - mid week signings desperately needed.

Somehow dropping a winger ain't going to fix much I think...

What are your suggestions then? It's not as if we have Taumalolo waiting in ISP to play

My two Bob's worth but if these guys are available.

1. Thompson
2.Nofo Has improved his defense
3.Fanoua Speed and power
4.Kev a little spark
5.MWZ
6.Tui Support player
7.Brooks
8.Packer
9.Mcillrick Can throw a good pass
10.Matulino
11.McQueen Needs a chance as an edge runner
12. Lawrence
13.Taylor


14.Marsters Getting worked out. Can come on in forwards or out wide
15.Grant Adds tougness
16.Eisenhuth still solid
17,Reynolds A spark

Benji has made a super contribution. I would rest him have in coaches box
MCK has also done well but needs some full games in ISP for 80mim.
Twal to ISP to work on offloads.
Liddke to ISP to gain stamina.
Rockow who has done well but looks burned out a rest.
These changes I think bring in support players with attacking spark and speed. And fit Cleary rotation policy and freshen a few guys up.
