@Tigerpete said:I suspect it's horses for courses in theory here. Fast, nippy, skillful side with a potent attack. As we know Daine's a little raw and perhaps the cowboys explosiveness around the ruck is concern for Sheens.
@willow said:Actually I've just heard that Daine is battling a nasty virus and hasn't trained. There is a chance he may be a late inclusion on Sunday, however at the moment he's very doubtful, hence why he hasn't been named for anyone.
@hadds75 said:Id rather Daine spend the season in NSW Cup and play 60+ minutes for the remaining 7 games. The guy is so raw and lets face it, hes been in the NRL a year and has not showed 1% of improvement, if anything many would say hes gone backwards.
Give the guy some game time. I dont blame Sheens, anytime lauries on the field im more nervous than excited, particulary in defence, we just open up like nothing else.
@weststigerman said:I'm a bit confused why the club doesn't just come out and say he's missing the game due to a virus. Didn't there was any reason to keep it a secret.
@Balmain Bug said:Looks to be a bit of a shuffle happening. I went to watch training and players not named ran with the side in a heap of positions for all of the session. I was watching from my car eating my Red Rooster and chips so I couldn't really make out who the other guys were.
I couldn't tell what position Moltzen was playing but it wasn't halfback. It was like a wide 5/8 or centre.
If Farah is out, I am of the firm belief that Mataka will come onto the bench and Morris will play hooker.
I didn't sight Laurie. Ellis was playing in the centres.
