Did Rochow play ISP last week?
Yep - and went ok.
Good. Hopefully returns to his early season form. Was one of our best during the first month.

A good side this week with no obvious problems. One change for me would be Mahe Fonua to wing & Kevin Naiqama to centre . I'd like to see Mahe with more space & one on one opportunities. One wider should do just that. Also I reckon they have more go forward with both Packer & Matulino on at the same time.
Good luck guys & no excuses.
Fonua has looked very average everytime he’s played wing. I like him at centre

Fonua on the wing is off limits.

154m 17 runs 31 tackles at lock
I know that's only ISP, but a good sign he's working hard and not having a sook.

Yeah, Mahe's deficiencies would probably be amplified on the wing. Kev was one of our best last week from the 60 mins I saw.

Good to see Corey get the #1 back. I'd rather a fullback who's support play isn't a strong point but competitive in every other facet of the role over a a fullback who's support play is probably better but poorer in every other area.

Killer to start, with ET starting at lock and Hazlewood on the bench for mine. A more well rounded bench there.

Agreed. No surprises and plenty of commonsense.

Definitely a better side. Good to see a hooker there to start the game. Taylor at 13 should help lock up the middle. Should be a really good game.

100%, Cleary has used his head carefully for this week's team. Mind you it's the Raiders and they'll probably put 50 past us!

Killa's defence in the middle will be welcomed. Reminds me of Lincoln Whithers. Hard as nails.

Never been a problem with his defence.

Really needs to work on quick, accurate passes to first receivers.

Couple of quick runs (which he is not noted for) would mix it up nicely.

Hope he comes through for us.

Like this team at the moment, Good to see a genuine in Killer back will take control of the middle and give good service and MWZ has done nothing wrong with limited chances. Just hope Brooks is staying back for hours after training improving his kicking

Much better side. More speed with MWZ in and Tui out. I don’t hate starting with ET against a big side like the Raiders but we have to give Mcilwrick at least 55 minutes at hooker. Right edge a big problem just not good enough Rochow at least plods without too many errors.

Why Rochow? All you had to do was start Aloiai and have Chee-Kam off the bench.

Oh so there is accountability.

This isnt a Tim Sheens type team, people might want to take that comparison back.
Its an opinion!

Exactly

Its good to see him get another chance but the first forward pass out of dummy half and im out!
