    With all these injuries what team can we field next week v Dragons??? Maybe a few 'left field' selections??
    I'd include T Wright at 5/8 & move DCE to Hooker until Koroisau is back?? DCE defends well, is quick out of dummy half & has a good passing game????? I know I'm clutching at straws!! What else can we do.....bring in Lewis Brown, J Hastings?? Something has to change. Don't all laugh at once :rofl:

    Tom T
    J Taufua
    M Suli
    B Kelly
    A Uate
    T Wright
    T Hodkinson
    M Taupau
    DCE
    AFB
    S Lane
    J Thompson
    Jake T

    Res: M Wright, T Paseka, T Sipley, L Perrett

          The next two games against high quality opposition will lay the platform for the rest of the season. Fight and show pride and we’ll jag a few more wins. Show up with the effort from the past two matches and it’ll signal a very sad end to the year and battle for the spoon.

            What happened last time Api was out against the Raiders ?? Brown started and Too Wrong Wright rotated with him. Exact same thing will happen for the next few weeks I suspect, Tuberculosis not big on change, but in fairness he doesn't have many options available to him. Unless we get some changes to the squad before June 30 then it'll be Brown and M Wright

              Well you could pick worse , that’s really shaking things up a bit and a lot of pressure on Tom Wright but cometh the hour ....
              And DCE at Hooker? his defence is good he and he is quick off the mark and can kick (although poorly the last 3 weeks)
              And might be the freshen up/wake up he needs
              Give it some thought Trent!!

                Yes.Agree C and C and I would have sympathy if the coach had picked at least another SPECIALIST option at hooker in the top 30. How can a club go into a gruelling NRL season with one hooker who is tiny and plays tough.And that one hooker has no kicking game! Then again how could a coach have a top 30 at the start of the year with, outside Hastings, ONE bloke who can kick.

                No other club would have a team with 2 kickers and one hooker in the entire roster.It was a conscious ludicrous decision by the coach and he should bear the responsibility.

                        Are we talking the same dce who's defence you say is good. Am I missing something, or are you comparing it to his kicking game?

                        Where is Parker? He's a must. Good defender and reliable. Even if he comes off the bench.

                        Our record against the Dragqueens is appalling in recent times. If we play negative like yesterday we will be annihilated!! There needs to be a reshuffle and having DCE at hooker and bringing in Tom Wright into the halves is not the worst idea. The team will need to create and score points cause my fear is we will need to score at least 24 points to have any hope as our defence is soooo leaky!!

                        Good mobile forwards who find their front when tackled, quick play the balls, organised and scheming halves and strike out wide..... the blueprint for a modern day NRL side.

                        Good luck with this one on their patch .

                            We swapped Parcell for nobody! Hastings is not in contention. Whoever let Parcell go is a goose
