Edit: apologies to Berks for cutting your grass!
Hasson on bench too
Chooks not up yet.
I'm pleased to see George retained. He was clearly trying his heart out. hopefully with some decent game time over a few weeks he can get himself into peak form, in which case he can play an important role for us. Ball's squarely in his court now.
Interesting that there's only one specialist prop on the bench, does that mean Hasson is looked at in that role...and Tonga as cover for Snake.
Good to see that Tooves is rotating the bench ie not the same every week which we had in previous years regardless. Hiku got first shot in the backs, played well enough, Gower, JSL in the forwards too.
Now Hasson and Tonga getting a taste and George playing for his future with King, Joe G and Richie sidelined for a while.
Lets just hope it's on merit and he hasn't copied the Cricket Australia blue print of the rotation policy!
I imagine that if Snake gets ruled out over the course of the next week we will see Hiku get a run at FB.
Hopefully 2V isn't thinking of running Horhay at FB for a full game.
Is it just me or did Tonga look like a prop? He was very slow.
Looked like he was running in quick sand?
He's not going to put a rookie at fullback in the NRL. Tafua will go there.
I wonder what Jesse Sene did wrong on the bench to get dropped. Didn't sit in the right seat, wore the wrong track suit, warmed up on the wrong spin cycle.
He's also not going to put a player with massive deficiencies under the high ball there.
Tafua is deffinately not your makeshift fullback ! Although I don't think hiku is up for it yet ! Chisolm !!
It should be Hiku
But I have always though Wolfman would go ok at fullback. Think he may have played a few games there in reggies for us before he crack NRL
Is it just me or did Hasson look like a one size down version of Lawrence?
If snake is out hurt
Then Hiku may get a run
Hor-hey at full back
Tonga looked like a retired overweight prop.
Was the reason Buhrer didn't play against the Dragons because he had an injury, or did Tooves drop him in favour of Hasson for that game?
Dropped him for Jesse.
