    Only 2 of them will make it next week

    Rose has been great lately, and if he was dropped tonight, I would be very surprised. Possibly after a couple of big weeks they were looking to freshen him up, or Toovey wanted to see a straight shootout between Mauro and Lussick for that last bench spot

    Both of them were very good tonight

    Mauro 10 runs, 64m and 34 tackles. A big game and he never lets us down

    Lussick 11 runs, 86m and 11 tackles. He looked really strong with the ball tonight and always looked to have an arm free

    Both of them I thought had really good games and the decision for next week is extremely tough

    For me, it is Rose and Mauro

    Happy with that kiwi although I would prefer lussick over mauro given occasional line break and offload. He also seems to have eliminated the rubbish out of his game.

    It is a close call !! I don't leave Lussick out because he is leaving us, I think many would go down that line though

    I go for Mauro, because the bloke never lets us down, is consistent every week in what you get from him, and I feel more safe when he and Galuvao come off the bench

    Lussick is without a doubt more dangerous but is a bit more of a loose cannon as well

    Safe, consistent, defence orientation from the bench wins finals. Mauro for mine.

    Mauro and Lussick. I still think Rose is too unfit and a possible liability in defence.

    Being big doesn't mean you are unfit

    He played 60mins easily when needed to 2 weeks back

    Joe has been great since we signed him, not sure if Tooves gets any credit for it though

    Rose and Mauro for me too. Rose because he has twinkle toes AND can run over them, and Vic because he has stepped up to another level in defense the last few weeks.

    Rose and Mauro for me. Vic does his work and very rarely makes a mistake or gives away a penalty, the kind of guy you need come finals footy.

    Mauro for sure. Lussick and Rose can fight it out for other spot, happy to take either.

    Someone mentioned last week that Vic is staying, said that they spoke to him after last week's game. Good decision by 2V and Co. No frills player that does his work without costing the team anything. A bit similar to Willo.

    If you want proof of this, get on you tube and search Roy "Big Country" Nelson, the UFC fighter.

    He's built like George but has handed out some serious ass whippings to guys who think, "Who is this fat pr*^k ?". Awesome stuff.

    George and Vic for mine.

    Did we ever get a reason as to why George was on the outer at the start of the season and spent all that time in reggies. Was it a fitness thing or attitude/discipline reason ?
