    Real toss up whether we keep Mauro in there or give Lussick a run. IMO Lussick is the more devastating of the two, but we have gotten here off the back of hard work from Mauro

    Pleased to see T-rex start ahead of Rodney, he deserves it.

    Mauro probably deserves his spot more but I think Lussick would have more impact. I'm happy to see either get a run on Sunday but I think Lussick probably has the edge. In saying that, I suspect des will go with 1-17 leaving Lussick to rue what could have been had he not been suspended.

    It will be nothing to do with who deserves it.

    The only issue is, will Lussick, who is very inexperienced at NRL level and hasn't played for a long time, be a better bet than Mauro, who has been playing week in week out and going very solidly indeed?

    It's a tough call but I suspect Mauro might get the nod.

    Luckily we have someone pretty smart making this decision.

    Same...i would be going with Lussick but Mauro has more games up and Des puts more stock in experience.

    No guarantee it'll happen that way on Sunday

    I'd start with Rodney, with Rex on the bench. Has George shown enough over Lussick and Mauro? Choices, all good. Any player will do it for us. There's not a weakness. The Checchin factor weighs heavily on my thoughts.

    Theres only two possible changes:

    1) Rodney in Trex to bench
    2) Lussick bench Mauro to miss out

    1 is more likely than two, but i dont think either will happen.

    I would like to see Rodney start with Williams coming on at about the 30 min mark.
    I think Lussick is the better out of the rest. I do think that Des will give Mauro a go. They are both a bith like Choc with giving penalties away. Hope it doesn't happen this weekend.

    Does George do enough to warrant his bench spot? Lussick and Mauro are certainly mobile

    George will be in, not sure of this talk of who will Des give a go? You don't give someone a go in the gf you pick the best team!

    I think he'll start T-Rex.

    Need some size out there to start with. Those Warrior forwards will be running at a 100 miles an hour early in the game

    It will be sad for whichever 2 players miss out as they all deserve to be in the team.

    I just hope that the NRL give us 21 rings this year so that kingy.wolfie also get a ring
