No shocks here. Good to see Aloiai back, he'll probably make the 17

I love Twal's mad stare. Go hard boys!

Tim Grant and Josh Aloiai were not named in the ISP team (Nofo and Gamble were named) so does that mean that they will be playing in 1st Grade on Saturday?

Not necessarily..you can play ISP if you are not named in the side on a Tuesday ...not the same rules as NRL..

Or they simply can be the 2 traveling reserves..What you can't do is play NRL if not named in the initial 21 cut to 19 24hrs before kick off..

Have a feeling Aloiai will come into the final 17.
Isn’t named in reserves so surely
I hope so, McIllwrick on the bench is a waste of a spot.

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.
Honestly, Chee-Kam could play anywhere on the field, he's that good. I wouldn't be surprised if Ivan puts him at fullback for this one.

Id be surprised if Grant sits out again this week. He will start lacking match fitness.

He wont be traveling reserve.

More likely Aloia and one of either Nofo or Gamble.

Would be a great experience to take Gamble to Melbourne and involve him in an NRL build up but id say itll be Nofo
Its an opinion!

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.

I hope that Ivan has given Thompson the instruction to pin his ears back and run like the wind if he makes a break. I just wonder if he would have won the foot race on Saturday when he broke clear and passed to Tui.

Interchange: 11 Boyd Cordner (c), 14 Dylan Napa, 15 Zane Tetevano, 17 Victor Radley - Roosters Bench Round 1

Interchange: 14 Tim Glasby, 15 Kenny Bromwich, 16 Christian Welch, 17 Sam Kasiano - Storm Bench Round 2

In Round 1, we needed to combat the effect of the Rooster's bench otherwise they might've gained a momentum up the middle, hiving more time and space for Teddy, Cronk, Mitchell etc. This could've resulted in Roosters scoring a few quick tries giving the upper hand. However, with Matulino coming on for us - I thought he played great and with lots of aggressive runs and effective tackled. https://www.weststigers.com.au/news/201 ... -the-week/

The Storm bench isn't as strong as the Roosters but they do have 4 forwards compared to our 3 + McIllwrick. The Storm will keep coming at us through the forwards this week, more so than the Roosters. If we don't stop the forwards than we are no chance with the backs that they possess. I would like to see Aloiai in for McIllwrick. McIllwrick isn't going to offer anything from the bench. If we do decide to go with a utility; Gamble would definitely be the best option.

Yes, he's a great trainer.
Would you rather a poor trainer?
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?

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:

He might have if he dummied to Tui, but Tui mau have also have had a shot if Cory made even a half arsed attempt to draw Tedesco.

Totally 100% agree
Bigger bodies needed
Gamble has size ability and a hunger to prove his worth
A bench of Twal Eisenhuth Aloiai and MCK looks great
They wouldn't let us down
They could be or Awesome Foursome
