Your Team V Cows

Given that we think Brooks will be missing.
1 Tedesco
2 Nofoaluma
3 Simona
4 Naiquma
5 Rankin
6 Taylor
7 Moses
8 Woods
9 Halatua
10 Seumunifungai
11 Alioia
12 Lawrence
13 Sue

14 Grant
15 Lovett
16 Farah
17 Edwards

Good side Maxxy.
I’d pick something similar.
Edwards played better this week…but I’d go JJF for Edwards though.

(Assuming Brooks out)

1. Teddy
2. Nofo
3. Simona
4. Naiqama
5. JAC
6. Moses
7. Littlejohn
8. Woods
9. Halatau
10. Sue
11. Aloiai
12. Lawrence
13. Taylor

14. Ava
15. Grant
16. Griffin
17. Farah

Assuming Brooks is out and given our 2nd tier cap maxing out then I would assume JJF and JAC are both ineligible for more FG as they weren’t top 25 this year

FB - James Tedesco
W- David Nofoaluma
C-Kevin Naquiama
C-Tim Simona
W- Justin Hunt
FE- Jordon Rankin
HB- Mitch Moses
L- Elijah Taylor
SR- Josh Aloia
SR- Chris Lawrence
P- Suaso Sue
H- Dene Halatau
P- Aaron Woods

R1- Ava Seumanufagai
R2-Tim Grant
R3- Joel Edwards
R4- Micheal Chee-Kam (I actually like Lovett and would have him back th week after just for this one week)

Not sure I would make two positional changes and bring in one new player to cover Brooks. I would leave Rankin on the wing, Moses at 5/8 and bring in Littlejohn for Brooks.

Dunno but we need Farah in there somewhere and we really need Brooks to back up

If brooks was out id consider Farah to halfback on the expection he provides service one off the ruck and for his kicking game otherwise he gets hooked

Also add Felise in there, we need size

Farah has never been good at halfback. If he’s in the team it should be at hooker. We have decent options for half or 5/8 in Littlejohn or Rankin. We could also just throw Lawrence to 5/8 with Moses at halfback given we have some reasonable depth in the second row - Sirro, Griffin or Felise at prop with Sue moving to second row.

1.Tedesco
2. Nofualuma
3. Simona
4. Naiqama
5. Ado-Carr
6.Rankin (form’s diabolical but being in the halves might help)
7. Moses
8. Woods
9. Halatau
10. Sue
11. Alouai
12. Lawrence
13. Taylor
14. Littlejohn
15. Edwards
16. Grant
17. Seumanufagai
I know, I’ve gone back on what I said on my other thread but now that I think about it, I think these are the best options. Some said that JAC played poorly yesterday but I’ll trust his talent….

I feel Farah has burnt himself and get the feeling this will not be Taylor’s decision it will come from higher up the ladder just my opinion.

14. Tim Grant
15. Ava Seumanafagnai
16. Edwards/MCK - leaning towards Edwards only because he did nothing wrong to get dropped
17. Robbie Farah - has to play will want to prove a point at LO

Thurston will tear us a new one if he plays, what he could do to our right hand side defence will have this forum fuming. Our defence tends to rush up on the halves to create pressure, you can’t do that to JT he’ll make you look silly and put someone through a hole. Hope he doesn’t play….

Rankin btw should never step on a field again with the no.5 on his back.

Lovett can have a break, the last couple of weeks he has looked a bit flat and Edwards defence against the Eels was impressive.
