    <p>SPLIT Enz front man Neil Finn once penned a little ditty called History Never Repeats. That could almost be the victory song of the Sunshine Coast Sea Eagles after they accomplished a feat yesterday that might never be matched.</p>

    With Lyon out, put T-Rex at 5/8th.  Apparently he went great.

    Pass.  As good as he is in the QLD Cup, he is just not up to NRL standard.  He is nothing but a bad luck charm whenever he plays for Manly in the NRL in my opinion.

    STGI should win.  With Lyon out and existing combinations not clicking, time for some radical risk-taking?  e.g.:

    Forum favourite T-Rex = 5/8th
    Foran = centres
    Inglis' speedhump = Wolfman = LRO
    Bailey = LRO
    Hodkinson replacing the injured Orford at half

    We wouldn't die wondering, plus we would see what some others might be capable of. The biggest question isn't whether we can beat Broncos, but STGI and the Storm.

    if you where going to do some thing as silly as that @ this time of year I think

    TH to 1/2
    OX to 5/8 (needs to assume a finch style ball distributing role with the odd injection)
    Foran to Centres
    Matai Centres
    Farrar Wing
    MR wing
    BS - FB

    I don’t think @ this time of the year you can leave the captain out no matter how poor his form is, I'd love to see it happen but it wont.

    Wolfman can continue taking pretty pics for the tele and his movie career – those Brisbane wingers and centre would have a meal of David Williams in his current form.


    I don't like the physical size of that back line but we don't have many options

    The Captain is crap and a liability M-S.  Apparently he's injured so why carry him any further.  Teams that carry injured players into games usually get beat.  Coaches that select injured players usually end up on the scrapheap.

    I don't disagree but Dessie loves him and theres not a chance he wouldn't not play him....

    Given Dessies statement of love for the guy in todays papers I reakon where stuck with him for the long haul.... Which is very sad.
