There were some really poor player performances last night. Next game I want to see some young guys getting a chance, they can’t do any worse than our team from yesterday. We have nothing to play for other than pride for the rest of the year anyway.
So, changes for next game:
2nd tier cap
Just blow it, the fines aren’t that bad. Marsters and Felise would be top 25 I’d imagine and Cleary has already put Tatola and Eisenhuth in top 21 squads, so he must have been prepared to play them.
the more players you put up there the more negative impact it has on the 2nd tier cap. i dont think we want to be paying fines for going over it or asking the NRL for special dispensation later in the season
These young guys need to be given some time in the top grade as we will need them next year. Bring them in one at a time and give them 3 games, they can get and taste and continue to develop in state cup. If they kill it give them an extended run but be honest from the start and say this is the plan for your development.
Cleary will be forced to make changes for the next game with Aloiai missing through injury Sue through suspension and Tedesco through ill discipline. …
The forwards are the most pertinent issue. If we go into another game with Edwards and Lovett as our backrow combination or that front row rotation, we’re not going to win.
Woods and Tedesco will likely also pull up “fatigued/sore” from origin and want to sit the next game out. Also not sure the extent of Lawrence’s injury, Edwards also went off. Side:
