    So why name Fainu in the side when he clearly cannot play being unregistered and bingo the NRL confirm that? Is there nobody at home in either the coaching ranks or club management who may have figured this before naming him? Is the anti Hastings vibe that strong so that's why he was ignored? Come on, this club is currently run by imbeciles.

        My considered view was maybe , just maybe this was going to throw another log on the fire in regards to greenberg. Deep down they knew it wouldnt happen but if they do take this to the big courts everything little bit of perceived bias, especially if hastings is leaving this week may be helpful

        Its a pretty long bow i know but i presume it a bit of a game atm.

        The NRL call matt wright a hooker is an equally long bow and sets a precedent. Many teams have players run on in the wrong jersey playing ducks and drakes with selection. Could this potentially cause issues when the NRL says they ran on with number 4 , george rose is obviously a centre. Poor example but its early

          Hastings card is marked by TB, he won't pick him regardless!! Fainu is the future and he needs to be blooded, I applaud the selection, its long overdue!

            Unfortunately the selection has been knocked back by the NRL in their infinite wisdom.

            We have 3 choices. OK, 2 choices since the banished one is no chance.

            Lewis Brown or Matt Wright.

            Either way, we're screwed.

              This is true,but why didn't the imbeciles in management know the correct order of procedures that are set in place by Nrl.The consistency in repeatedly looking unprofessional really scares me.

                The only other choice I see, and it really only works with Walker back in the side, is moving Hodko to dummy half and Walks to 5/8.

                When exactly is Walks due back?

                  There are really only 2 possible explanations, that I can see.
                  1. Strategically we name the kid early in the week, with a view to using that to put some sort of pressure on the NRL, so by the end of the week the kid is in our top 30. How that may occur, I have no idea!
                  2. Baz is right and they are imbeciles.

                      Shouldnt we just say we have 7 head injuries, struggling with concussion. The club has a duty of care to protect and rest them. We can do without brown and then clear matt wright 1 hour before kick off

                        The “funny” is for using “NRL” and “precedent” in the same sentence. Comedy gold. If there were a PMSL rating I would have given you that!

                          I also would question the NRL
                          Hastings
                          Brown
                          Wright

                          Are all part time hookers

                              NRL response: We have considered the rule and under certain circumstance the NRL will consider making allowances to ensure player welfare. Player welfare is of utmost importance.

                                I rarely ever agree with the NRL but in this case they are 100 per cent correct.

                                We foolishly made a conscious decision to go into an NRL season with one hooker and part time back up. That was OUR choice.

                                Both the part time back up players are fit and available for selection. The NRL shouldn’t have to take into account Barrets problems with THE OUTCAST.

                                If we had another specialist hooker who was injured Fainu would be fine to play. This is solely down to our roster selection.No other team in the competition has one specialist hooker for this very reason.Lunacy.

                                The really amazing part about this is that Barrett declared Croker as an absolute certainty for 5/8 well before the March top 30 roster announcement. Given Croker had played one game of NRL I think it’s pretty safe to say Barrett and Hastings were not exactly on good terms, which was confirmed when Barrett said his misdemeanours had occurred over a long period of time and they had already had mediation occur prior to the top 30 being announced.

                                So with that knowledge that a blow up could occur at any time we proceeded to announce a single hooker in our squad.Im in no way backing Hastings behaviour but how could you go with a single hooker knowing this. It defies belief.

                                  So based on the NRL's "logic" if Brisbane's McCullough and some others get injured they have no hope of bringing a young guy in as both Thiaday and McGuire have played hooker.

                                  Yeah right ...........

                                    Considering that Lewis Brown is not injured and was in fact our hooker just 2 weeks ago.....in all reality naming someone outside of the top 30 was an absolutely stupid move.

                                    Just add it to the ever growing list of stupid decisions this club has made in recent times. Including, and I am 100% agreeing with @Sue here.....going into a season with only ONE recognised hooker in the squad of 30.

                                    Who the f*** does that?

                                      I can see why the NRL knocked it back and IMO it's probably fair enough. You can't have teams bringing in players from outside the squad to cover an injury. That's part of the whole juggling act and part of the salary cap - you need to MANAGE your roster.

                                      As for naming him in the squad before he gets a release to play then I presume that is to conform with NRL rules that you need to name a squad by Tuesday from which you MUST pick your final 17. If they wanted to seek clearance for Fainu then he had to be named pending an application to have him accepted. They lodged the application and it was rejected, so no big deal. It would have been more imbecilic to not name him and have the application granted and then he not be allowed to play because he wasn't named in the 21 man squad on Tuesday.

                                        Totally different

                                        Nikorima is their back up hooker, has played a lot there and is listed as a hooker on their website. Broncos halves were pegged as Milford and Bird . Birds injuries and form has meant they have chopped and changed.

                                        Maguire played hooker in the World Cup as well.The broncos wouldn’t need to bring anyone up because Nikorima and Maguire >>>>>Brown and Wright and almost certainly better than anyone they could bring up.

                                        The point is if you have two specialists and they get injured then you will almost certainly get dispensation if you want it. Broncos have a better constructed roster and adequate cover and don’t rely on plodders like our guys as back up.

                                        It’s called roster management.

                                          But the point is that the NRL were never going to allow Fainu's selection. Brown was basically our backup hooker for how long? Of course the NRL were going to say there are other hookers in the squad. So to even name Fainu was stupid since blind Freddie could see that it wasn't going to be allowed.

                                          I was actually reading 1EyedEel a few weeks back and a few of them were banging on about how Arthur in his squad management had been very short sighted when it came to the squad itself and the players in it. In essence only caring about the NRL 17 each week which had led to a severe lack of depth. They could well have been talking about Barrett and Manly.

                                          If Barrett wanted Fainu to be our backup hooker.....he should have been in the 30 from the start. As it is he wasn't and we're left with Lewis Brown as the only anywhere near recognised hooker outside of Api. Then when you've played others there such as Matt Wright and Hastings, none of who are on the injured list......again it boils down to stupidity in roster management.

                                          Think about this for a moment. We have a player such as Jono Wright in our top 30, yet no actual back up specialist hooker. The ball has been well and truly dropped.
