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
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.
Where has this nonsense about Corey's support play supposedly not being a strong suit? Have you watched his games at fullback?

Totally agree with this point
Maybe his ball playing is non existent but think support play has been first class

Thank god Tui is gone!
Bring on the Killa ❤ not a game changer but at least hes a hooker!

Now we just need MWZ out and we would be golden.

I'd just like to see Packerlino show us what they can do, I won't hold my breath though.
Overall these pair have been pretty disappointing imo.

Once again not feeling confident this week, the confidence that was there earlier in the season is completely gone now.
The players won't admit it but as a fan I can feel it, I think the squad now knows their potential too and realise that they've probably already reached it, we don't have much more than we've shown already, we could control the ball better for sure but that's about it.

Awesome and hopefully he never puts on a Tigers jersey again!
Which one - MCK, Godawful or Tui? Hopefully all three!

Happy to see Mcilwrick back. Wouldv'e been good if he started at hooker and E.T back at lock. Better team this week. Happy to see Tui gone

Cleary is usually good for a reshuffle. Would not surprise me to see him start.

A little better ball handling would probably have seen us in the top 4.

Sorry, I was referring to his ball playing, it's the only thing Tui has him beat on. Poor use of England on my part.

Still he's probably not up there with Slater or Tedesco either.

Great to see Killa in, and great to see tui and MCK out - both players who underperformed, and a reward for someone who's been ripping in.

This is what we've be looking for for years!

Well played Mr Cleary.

Finally the penny has dropped with Ivan. No Tui, no MCK and ET at lock. McIlwrick should have been in 4 weeks ago. IMO this is our best squad to date.

Did lawernce get injuried at the back of that game and Cleary is foxing with selections as usual with either MCK or McQ to be his replacment or is he 100% and there was no injury at the end of the game?

He’s fine just cramped up towards the end according to his sister
