Mahe is in tomorrow
good that Mahe is there, I wouldn't be surprised if the Raiders test him out, due to match fitness.

I'll laugh if we do wear it and end up smashing the Raiders, breaking two hoodoos in the process :sign:

Let's hope he doesn't have Austin running at him too often.

We said the same thing about Fonua last time we played the Raiders, thinking he’d have a field day against BJ.

I dunno I think Austin's a bit predictable in the centres. At 5/8th his show-and-go is great, as is his early step against low forwards. But out wide, he is only going to run, that element of surprise is taken away.

Still a good footballer but Tigers usually handle Austin well, it's the other big units we struggle with.

Our threats today are:
1. Hodgson our of dummy half
2. Papali and forward momentum
3. Rapana and Leilua getting on a roll

A few weeks ago we totally defused the south’s forward pack. We can do this today if we are mentally strong. It’s not physical - we’ve gotten on top of big packs before

Any of their forwards when they have a roll on

Hodgson is carrying a rib injury from last weekend , we need someone to test them out :twisted:

Agreed. I thought we held Canberra ok last time around until Hodgson started probing, totally shredding our ruck and putting those huge Canberra forwards on the advantage. He's a class footballer, IMO the best hooker in the comp when fit.

Taylor to edge. Huth to lock. Liddle onto bench. Garner to bench. Rochow and Fonua drop off bench.
No more plodders!
