Shame about the injury, thankfully we have solid depth at prop. Sue might return to the 17.
No more plodders!

Bad news but an exciting opportunity to see who steps up, I'm confident someone will.
Huth into front row
ET to lock


Bench of:
Twal
Aloiai
Reynolds
MCK
Agree with this although id also like to see

Twal to front row
Et to lock
Huth of the bench


Twal has been oir best meter per run guy
I agree also have to look at the matchup. Huth is long and not strong in the upper body will struggle with Tapau &Fonua—Blake Twal gets the start for me.

That news definitely could have been a lot worse. Ivan will need to consider whether to play Aloiai up front and promote either Sue or Grant to the bench. I would probably prefer to see Sue come off the bench as he has more of an offload in his game than Grant, and Aloiai deserves a start.

Aloiai to prop. ET to lock

Bench:
Reynolds/Benji
Twal
Huth
MCK

Gutted for Packer, he has been sensational. But wish him a speedy recovery, relieved that its not an ACL

What an absolutely great signing. Rewatched the game yesterday and in Melbourne's penultimate set he made three tackles in a row, including a desperate effort from marker followed up by being part of a group effort on Solomona. Embodies the spirit of the team and will be sorely missed.
One of my sources is Pascoe

Has been my favourite player of 2018. Has added grunt and go forward that we haven’t had in years. Looks like a true leader unlike our previous “it is what it is” leader. Will be sorely missed.

Speaking of him, Paul Kent has him as one of the worst buys of 2018.

That makes more sense. I’ve watched a few bulldogs games and he has been horrible. Still turns his back, then gives a slow play the ball. They swapped him for graham. Wow what a mistake.

Has the club officially commented on the extent of Packers injury or are we all guessing?

Guessing based off rumours. He got scans taken yesterday. Odd they haven't announced anything yet.
