Looks like Burns will be out, either injured on on an enforced holiday.

Many are dead against the idea of Monaghan at 5/8, so what option would people take

I would take Monaghan, i suppose the other option would be Lyon, with Bradley coming into the centres or Hicks moving in opening up a slot for Meaney, or Matai maybe being fit to play

I guess if Matai is fit then he can come in and Lyon will go to 5/8. If not like you say KE I would go with Monaghan. Could that then open up a bench spot for everyones favourite..... Dunley?? :wall:

If Matai isn't right, monas should for to 5/8. Otherwise lyon should play it.

Burns injury is the biggest concern. I think his tackle was bad enough to warrant a penalty. But not a suspension. It was unfortunate but he has deliberately tried to stop him landing on his head, and it payed off. I don't think he'll be suspended but the injury may be a problem.

Although im banking all that on deliberate head butts after full time only get 1 week.

I would leave Lyon right where he is. His defensive work in the 'Wall of Brookvale' is very good.

Monas could do worse than play 5/8 as Ballin will do the job at hooker.

If Burns is out next week, and neither Matai or Menzies have returned, I'd like to see Monaghan in the 6 with Ballin in the 9 and Halden back on the bench to cover. If Matai returns, it's likely we'll see Lyon in the 6 (as much as I hope he isn't). If Menzies returns, put him straight in and put Willow in the #14 instead of Halden.

I was under the impression that the judiciary penalises 'dangerous tackles' not tackles that get into a dangerous position at some point and end safetly.

The player that Burns tackled landed on his lower back and almost on his bum. I fail to see how that is dangerous at all.

Burns won't be judisherized for that tackle.
It wasn't even on report. If he's injured, Monas to 5/8, Ballin in and Haldon on the bench. Mataqi to PL. Menzies a desk job at headquarters, Dunley to Super League..
