    Jamie Lyon possibly out
    Ben Farrar arriving this week


    do we keep Robbo in the 1 shirt ?
    Farrar at Fullback ?
    Retain Tony Williams on the wing or on the Bench to cover ?
    If Lyon plays does Farrar get a run ?
    Will we see Suniula or Neumann again ?
    Cuthbo will be back this week also does he get his spot back ?
    Baily at 5/8 or centre if Lyon is out ?

    Suniula warmed up with the team on Sat. If Lyon is out, i think Des will go with following:

    1.Robertson
    2.Suniula
    3.Matai
    21.Williams
    5.Williams
    6.Bailey
    7.Orford
    8.Kite
    9.Ballin
    10.Perry
    11.Watmough
    12.Hall
    13.Stewart

    14.Le Strange
    15.Rose
    16.King
    17.Rodney

    With King and Rodney to start for Kite and Hall.

    why in the last few weeks does he name kite in the starting team and not play him. Just name Rodney and King in the starting team.

    no, didn't say that...it'a a bad backline overall. I think Panthers fast centres would get around Tony Williams all day, which would bring Wolfman out of posistion all day...turnstile.

    matai hits hard, and can be caught out in doing so, but if you are comparing....

    So they don't have to change jerseys/jersey numbers, I'm guessing.

    If Lyon is out I'd just have him replaced at centre with Farrar.

    Tony Williams hasn't impressed me at all yet - wouldn't put him in the centres.

    T Rex is purely a 2nd rower. The way he runs doesnt even appear that he could excel in that position either

    He needs to be told to get the ball and run straight and as hard as he can!

      Thankfully Jennings looks like he'll miss the game, along with Lewis.

    Keep Robbo at fullback until Lyon is back. Give Farrar a run in the centres and then once Lyon is back move robbo back to the wing and give Farrar a go in the number 1

    Has anyone actually watched this Farrar guy with any keen interest in his ability. Is he the Messiah he is being painted as ? I notice he scored a meat pie against us earlier this year, but I didn't see that game.

    He looks like he has been exclusively on the wing this year and a few games at centre last year when the Cowgirls had some injuries.

    I just can't see Des putting a brand new recruit straight into one of the most important positions on the field. Like Dan said, but Des would probaly want him to run drills at #1 for 3 weeks first.

    Plus, Robbo has been going pretty damn well at fullback the last couple of weeks. Do we wanna take him out of the position just as he's getting used to it?

    Is Farrar as good as you all say?  If Jennings is out and Lewis certainly is, we are in this with a win.  Looking at the game against the Tigers they were woeful in the first half and only got home on the back of the Tigers playing like park footballers (which most of them are tbh)  We have to get up fast and in the face of their big men.  Turn them around with long kicks and run them off their feet.  If Farrar's not as good as you all say, I'd leave Big Tony out, put Choc at centre and Cuthbo in the second row.  There you go.
