    Makes the most sense to me out of all the options.

    No concerns there. As everyone knows, I'm a huge Liam Foran fan. In fact, I'd love to see him get the 14 next season, if Buhrer slots into 12 after T Williams dumps our jersey for The Bulldogs.

    As I have stated, I think he could have Hinchcliffe type of benefit to our team.

    Agree entirely with this approach. TRex or Buhrer in the centres would be a death sentence for us. Leave them where they play best.

    I only want Lyon to play if he is fit.

    We have 2 fairly important games after tomorrow night.

    If Liam did play I rekon Foz would really lift and have a massive game.

    So the scenario here is that Whare goes to RHS to cover for Killer, Keiran pushes out one wider on LHS and Liam slots inside him ? Can't see Foran swapping to RHS, would be too disruptive to existing patterns.

    Not a great scenario but probably the best option. The LHS is going to rely heavily on T-Rex in attack now, so hope his pre-match hype is delivered. RHS with Whare and Oldfield will be a worry. We need Gifty and DCE to really focus up and play smart down that side, I can see Snake getting more involved on that edge to provide some options as cover for losing Killer.

    We need defense to cover the Thurston,Bowen,Sewerneck combo. This is where they score their points. I'd be putting one of the Forans on Tate. Actually Liam was very good defensively when he subed for K Foz and if he happens to take Tate out of the game then all the better.

    Tate plays RHS for Cows so he will be on Forans' side anyway.

    I read it as being this:

    1. Snake
    2. Oldfield
    3. Whare
    4. K Foran
    5. Tafua
    6. L Foran
    7. DCE

    I'm going to go out on a limb here and suggest that is a better lineup than having Jamie play injured. We know both Forans have great defence and both have a pretty fair kicking game. The lift they and in turn the team would get from the Brothers playing their first NRL game together would be massive IMO.

    I hear what you are saying ralphie. You have me pumped for the bro's to play together now. Take this the right way, but it's almost like I'd be disappointed if Jamie plays now. I want to see how the bro's will go.

    This is the best option by far. As we have seen our defence falls apart when the backline is reshuffled and has either Williams or Buhrer in the centres, i.e. Parra and Knights games. This option will have not have the same negative impact imo.

    Lyon not playing is too scary for me to consider. All the other options seriously weaken us.

    1. Snake
    2. Taufua
    3. Lyon
    4. Whare
    5. Oldfield
    6. K Foz
    7. DCE
    8. King
    9. Ballin
    10. Kite
    11. Choc
    12. Buhrer
    13. Gift

    14 T Rex
    15. Lussick
    16 Rose
    17. Liam

    Luv Joe but he's carrying too many injuries to risk.

    This is a good team Mick, but Tooves will go for T-Rex to start.

    That explains why, when they showed on the news Killer at training yesterday, Liam was looking very involved training with them.

    Great to see that Tooves is keeping his cards close to chest on this, it will keep the Cowboys guessing. I hope Liam does play 5/8 and drives JT back to Townsville in one tackle.

    So did he pass the fitness test today or not? I'm guessing he didn't but they won't officially rule him out till before the game.
