Seibold mentioned Ray Ray in the presser could be considered, though he is on report from the Workers game today.

Could be a chance for one of the development players to get a chance with injuries and suspension.


I think Ray Ray will be next cab off the rank & if he is in fact suspended, maybe we can get special approval to utilise faulolo (however you spell it apologies)


Ray Vaega will come in. For those hoping Reuben goes back to the wing for injury cover, forget it. Seibs is adamant and locked in with Garrick at centre. It's what he wanted to do last year, he's now got his chance now and he's locked him in. He said it in his interview before the game as well.

Give Garrick time, he will come through. Especially when he gets his true wing partner back, Saab. Just like how it took time for us to warm up to him being a solid winger to then him being a solid fullback backup, it will take it's time but I promise you most of us in the forum will be singing his praises as a centre by the end of the season. Give the man his time.

This will be a huge test, you can bet ya house that the NRL, Refs and bunker won’t want the Eels to start 1-2 so we will be up against it

from what i seen from Harper and the eels we should smash them 13+

No Ray Ray, Saab and Talau means Parker should be picked for centre for this game at least.


If Ray is out I would be picking Faulalo on the wing. IMO he should be ahead of Ray already but he isn’t in the top 30.
We should be able to play him this week due to all our injuries/suspensions.
Not the fastest but is very safe under the high ball, has a knack at popping up at the right time and knows how to find the try line.
