    I thought they might go the "one" hooker option - I heard that is Des's prefered option for a better balanced side. Therefore Chad or Dunley would miss out.

    Dunley has been good coming off the bench and making metres. But against the Dragons he had one of his biggest shockers. He is goooorne.

    I think he will resort to his round 1 side (obviously with Hicks for Hoppa). So it will be bye bye Chad.

    We will miss his metres - all 11 of them last week and an average of 16 each game. Sorry but you need to do more than that.

    Agreed with Fluffy. That's not 1st grade standard in Randall.

    Don't be too hard on Randall. We need his defense this week. To be honest I would put Hicks back in the centres and Creary on the wing until Hill returns

    The coin is in the air as who will stay, and who will be dropped.
    In my opinion, Matai looks a little stronger in defence rather than Stephenson.

    But danny we can have willo for even better defence and dunley for attack. Randall still hasnt managed to get hit fitness to any decent level and will not be able to play 80 mins.

    Dunley, with his flaws still is a matchwinner coming of the bench. Does anyone remember the Sharks game, man down, he was awesome!

    I know this is not popular but Chad isn't upto it IMO, slow to get to his feet (back into the line) in defence, tends to fall off tackles when tired and he attack is one dimenstional - run the blind and throw a cut out pass. Willo/Dunley are a lot more reliable and add more to the team overall than Chad.

    I hope your right Fluffy, also last season it took Des to about 10 games to move Hicks to centres - I sincerley hope it is this week or next at the latest. IMO it is easier to cover a deficeincy on the wing than the centres.
