    My thoughts.

    Even though Farrar did well yesterday under the high ball, he still looked anything but confident.

    On the other hand, the couple of bombs that went to Hoppa (and granted I dont think he was pressured) he seemed to take with ease, as a good fullback should.

    I think we should slot him in at fullback this week and shift Farrar to the centres. The Titans centres arent worldbeaters and I think Farrar and Whare would handle them.

    Last week I would have strongly disagreed, now I wouldn't mind, he physically looked up to it and didn't go backwards at all in his runs, very happy to see that

    I still don't know if he can do Farrar's ball playing though which is what our attack will need up there in the dry

    Rose and Burhrer to sunshine coast team and Perry and Cross on the bench.  

    Rose needs more conditioning work before he plays firsts again.  Des should cut off his macdonalds allowance after being tackled into touch on the first tackle yesterday.  You expect to see that in under 10's but not first grade.

    Yeah forgot about Cross actually, he definitely takes a bench spot.

    Left Perry out as he will probably still be in NSW side. Hopefully King and Perry dont get selected or at worst only one of them.

    I agree I thought it was a solid, without being flashy debut.

    Farrar doesnt seem to want to leave the ground to catch a bomb, and the first try where Falou jumped over him was a classic example.

    Hoppa can certainly jump, which was shown in that attempt at a try, he was up as high as Falou gets

    I dont think that rule applies for the situation where they are essentially heading to the UK for a retirement fund.

    I think it only applies to those switching to Union or fumble ball

    On our display on Sunday, no one should be picked.  Here's hoping.
