    I am a little worried that we won't have Lyon for this very important game next week. If we are to have any chance we at least need Matai to play.

    4. Whare

    1. B. Farrar
    2. M. Robertson
    3. K. Foran
    4. D. Whare
    5. T. Williams
    6. G. Stewart
    7. T. Hodkinson

    Or maybe plat Cherry-Evans off the bench.

    I'd be inclined to Keep Foran in the Centres, move Farrar to #6 and bring Hoppa in at Fullback.
    Ben's trying hard but he'd be better closer in and I'd like to see Hoppa play at the back for a whole game.
    Replacing Lyon with Whare is what Des will do.... but they've really struggled without Lyon and they need to get more out of the fullback spot than what Farrar's been offering. Hoppa could be the answer.

    I still think Hoppa is still one season playing NRL - maybe I am wrong I was one who didnt think Hodkinson ready...

    Physically, Hoppa is bigger than Farrar and is much better under the high ball. With the possibility of both Lyon and Matai being out again, we need a spark.
    As I said, Farrar tries really hard but #6 might be his best position and I believe Hoppa's is Fullback. Foran can cover #7, #6 and centre about equally and he did a good job on Champion who's been in good form.

    Drop Bailey, put Farrar into centre and young Hoppa fullback.

    Yep, but if Mattai is fit they'll play him.

    Should probably be;


    1. Rodney
    2. Robertson
    3. Rodney
    4. Rodney
    5. Robertson
    6. Rodney
    7. Rodney
    8. Rodney
    9. Rodney
    10. Rodney
    11. Rodney
    12. Rodney
    13. Gifty

    14. Rodney
    15. Rodney
    16. Rodney
    17. Rodney

    18. Rodney


    Don't think Des will go with that though. I'm tipping that Matai will be fine to play so Whare will come into the team to cover Lyon.

    Not confident at all going to the 'Riff with no Lyon...

    By all reports, our youth team did pretty poorly against The Bunnies with Whare and Hoppa both in that team.

    Farrar is going ok at fullback. I also noted Robbo went to fullback for patches of last nights game.

    Seriously though - with Lyon / Stewart / Wolfman all on the sidelines....that's a pretty massive chunk of cap sitting there...

    Our U20s were not very good last night.  The backs couldn't really do much as the forwards were just not very effective.  They were bigger and ran through us.  The only guy I'd consider went OK was a big Polynesian, maybe 3?  Don't know the name.  Farrah is going OK apart from the dropped bomb which conceded a line dropout.  He'd be OK at centre as well.  Hoppa to start at fullback?  He'd probably go OK.  Haven't seen enough of him to really make an informed decision.  We'll struggle at Penriff, but they are beatable.  They make errors.

    will likely be our team, and honestly...that's a team I think we can win well with....

    BUT, we do need to improve in a lot of areas.

    Foran looked like he was carrying his right arm on Saturday night.  Is he OK?

    Maybe in height, but Farrar as Clontaago reported a few weeks back is one of the most cut individuals in the team!

    For mine the most mportant thing is getting the captaincy right, we need soemone to lead out there and need an 80 minute player to do it.

    So therefore, name Ballin in captain, and it will certainly improve our result.

    It isnt the fact Lyon is Lyon it is that he is also a good captain, King and Stewart are not. If we lack a captain we lack leadership and no-one gels.

    i`d have hoppa on the bench instead of bailey though.. penrith are a spritely team, they have pace & can attack from anywhere.. we need to combat that with some youthful exubreance of our own .. so i`d have hoppa in there off the bench..  punt bailey..
