Even without Lui there should be way too many points in the Tigers to knock over the Sharks. I think they'll really struggle to handle the likes of Fifita, Woods, Dwyer.

Florimo is definitely a half, not a hooker. I seem to ask this every week but does anyone know what's happened to Sioeli Makaui? He was dominating out of hooker the first 2 or 3 months in NYC. I think he was injured for a few weeks but hasnt come back and has fallen off the radar.

Nicholls has to really take contol this week as he wont be able to rely on Lui as much as usual.

Where did Roqica go??

Hmm maybe he is focusing on Arrive Alive cup.

I wouldn't be surprised if they have quarantined him for this. The winger Jackson who replaced him last week was ok. Not as big or strong as Junior but he had more pace than Sauvao.

Corby is a good young player with plently of heart and offers more at hooker than Florimo.
Florimo is too hit and miss for me and has a terrible kicking game (i think he must practice with Morris :laughing: )
Dean Parata is a good back up hooker and is still only 17 i think.

That is a massive step down for a guy that was playing some very good footy early this year.
He is a good talent but that can only get you so far.
I hope Makaui can make a fist of is talent and make a play for the team this year and next.

Apparently there are a few NYC players playing for St Pats in the Under 21's. I wonder how that team is going? Are they on top of their competition.
