    Wow theres a scoop.

    You cant put anything past Sterlo.

    I get the feeling they will play Hoppa at 1 and give Brett another week.

    There's not really a need to push him. It's not do or die.

    It may not be do or die, but I wouldn't like to face Illawarra, Tigpies or Warriors next week. It would be do or die then.

    It doesn't matter when our next game is. It will be do or die regardless. Why risk him in a game we should win. If we can't beat the Cowboys without him, how can we expect be beat the better teams with him?

    I reckon he won't play til week three... Win or lose this week. More than happy to be wrong and you be right though Mark. I hope he plays.

    Plenty of talk in the last 48 hours about Thurstons dodgy knee. This is our response.

    I can assure I had very much inside knowledge last weekend and I was told he was fine and would play.....but he may have niggled it at training (he was training this week someone was there and reported that to me).

    As I say above I reckon smokes and mirrors BUT we'll see

    Unless 100% - Do NOT Risk!!
    Every final is important but the priority is both Stewarts playing in the GF!!

    George was giving it away last night. Snake is out. Hoppa to FB Oldfield to wing. Here come the Thurston bombs Michael.I'd prefer Whare at the moment.

    I don't think he has been 100% all year mate. Don't think he ever will be again to be honest.

    Prob true mate & i dont wanna sound over spiritual here, but just his presence on the field is a mass lift to the team. I know all about dodgy knees & i am suprised at how much speed he still has after so many ligament, cartlidge issues. To be blunt Bones- without him GF day our chances nosedive 30% imo.

    Mark you seem to be losing your confidence.

    I got the impression from George last night that it was all smoke and mirrors too.

    I got the impression he was leading us to believe he was out (under instruction ), but knew he would be a certain starter.

    Just how I read it.
