If Godinet drops off McQueen should come in for him with Taylor taking on the hooking role. Gamble should only come in as a half, it's not going to do him any good coming into top grade to play out of position.

I don't always watch the show but I saw that episode of 360 is well. Kent was looking at ways to bag the Tigers. But it was a bit hard for him because we have only lost one game (by a dodgy call) and financially the WTs are in a good position. We don't have any off field dramas for him to mention. All Kent could say was "I still don't know about Go and if the lose a few I don't think they have much depth".
Does he do research or just goes of his gut instinct ?
I think you'll find we have had to change the team around each week, which requires depth and our ISP team is coming 1st.
Yeah he said "I don't think Go is up to it" when Ikin mentioned that the board needs to be given credit as well and then said that we will fall apart as soon as our depth is tested

Does he even pay attention
I just watched that and what he said doesn't make sense. I don't think we've had our strongest 17 on the park at the same time at all this season. Then consider that we have 2 former origin players in reserve grade in Grant and McQueen and international players in Sue (who has got his chance at the moment) and Fonua. If he's looking for a weakness to pick at depth was a poor choice.
I remember watching this a few days ago and laughed when it was suggested our depth would be our downfall.

It has been tested already... even our halves with Reynolds going down before round 1.
P.Kent also mentioned that he thinks the Tigers won't be able to keep the intensity up in defence for the year. I think some of these blokes are probably still shell shocked with the fact that the Tigers have started so well and just can't get a grasp of it.

Time will tell

Why wouldnt they keep up their intensity. You go out, you play. You play your best. You play to your ability.

All of our team are playing to their ability. They are fit based on the off season reports. Each has shown flashes in each game at different times but they have been consistent. Other than Noff in one game, no one has had a complete shocker but, even in that game he did some good things.

When one is injured or down on form we bring in someone keen to do the job, play their best, play to their ability and most importantly to the game plan set.

Don't think Godinet will miss out. He was frequently at dummy half during attacking drills at concord yesterday. Benji looked good too.

I thought "Huth" was an acceptable abbreviation for him. Not sure about "Eiso" - I am going to have to ask for a dispensation for having to type "Eisenhuth" every time. Either that, or just stop writing about him.

Knights better watch out , the Twuth hurts :evil:
Yea someone should do a banner with a pic of Jack Nicholson and caption " You Can't Handle The Twuth ".
Yeah. That'd be right up there with some of the greatest fan banners of all time.
It'd compete with "who needs a big willy when you've got a clever tongue", which I've always thought to be the best one yet.
But the picture of Jack Nicholson . . .hmmmm . . . tough choice .

I’d love to see Gamble in firsts but Cleary has shown he pretty much prefers to swap like for like. I reckon if Godinet was out, MM would come in before Gamble.

He can't, he's not in the named 19 man squad.

Or Half the Twuth is a lie My Mrs again

Or their is no God higher than Twuth Gandhi

Or In thy face I see honour ,Twuth and loyalty Shakespeare

Or the Twuth is heavy , so few men wish to carry it

Or the Twuth told with bad intent beats all the lies you can invent

Or The Twuth will set you free , but first it will make you miserable Jim Davis

Or when you shoot the Arrow of Twuth , dip its point in honey (Arab proverb )

Or A rumour can spread all around the world before the Twuth can put it's shoes on Twain again and Lindy Chamberlain

Or Fear not the path of the Twuth for the lack of people walking on it Robert F Kennedy

Or Tell the Twuth or someone will tell it for you

Or Rather than money , than love , than fame , give me the Twuth

Or Blind belief in authority is the biggest enemy of the Twuth Einstein

Someone needs to control happy...

Btw the players call him Huth..so that's good enough for me...

Besides Rowdy sounds nothing like Lawrence...should that be changed to Lawry ..gygt..

I expect 1-17 to play...

I sincerely hope someone from the forum has contacted the club to inform them that the playing group is in fact wrong in the pronounciation of his nickname.

Christ almighty how pathetic...

I think of this game and the Parra game as defining moments in the new team culture as so often in prior years we would back up great wins with unexpected losses where we were favourites so I too am hoping we can finally bury those anxious thoughts tonight
