Even though we have a fork stuck in us ...

I can't help looking forward to Dessie's Tuesday team sheet ... and the inevitable head-shaking and hand wringing from the armchair brigade ...

With Saab and Jake out ... it increases the anticipation ...


Reserve Grader
If nothing else would at least like to see Weekes get a run (move Garrick to wing to replace Saab or give the poor bugger a rest) and maybe another young forward e.g. Fulton / Tuitavake (although I think he is injured).


First Grader
With Des it will be Koula to wing, Parker and Harper in Centres with Siply at 13 and Paseka joining the bench (or Boyle or De Luis).

Should be Koula to fullback.
Garrick back to wing, considering he is supposedly injured
Parker and Harper reunited.

Won't happen thou.


I don't get why he doesn't start Walker at 13, he plays 60 mins each week there when he comes on so it wouldn't be a stretch to start him.
None of the others can play big minutes in the middle.

Start Sipley and Marty

Paseka*, Schu, Keppie* ( or KDL ) and Weekes/Fulton on the bench

*if recovered from injury


Reserve Grader
With Des it will be Koula to wing, Parker and Harper in Centres with Siply at 13 and Paseka joining the bench (or Boyle or De Luis).
This is exactly what will happen

What I would like to see, knowing it's no chance of happening:

Weekes - give him a run in his preferred position, could be a possible FB/halves backup off the bench next year similar to Hynes at Storm last year
Garrick - also back in his preferred position, give him a break getting burnt at the back by slower players
Paseka - we were at our best last year with him starting with Aloiai, hasn't happened a single time this season
Schuster - let him start the game and get his hands on the ball early, bringing him on for 10-20 minute stints every week is doing him no good

Walker - can rotate with Schuster
Fulton - just needs 25 mins off the bench

Who gives a S%%t

Until the players start showing something there is nothing to support or go about watching.

That sharks squad will put 50 + on our lazy bunch of players.

Just received my "MOSH Health Report".

Paseka and Keppie still out, Harper coming along well but a decision made later in the week.

So does Burbo get another run in the centres?

Surely KDL and Fulton come in....


UFO Hunter
Des will pick the closest team to the regular that he can. Even with the year done and dusted he wont blood anyone new and he wont give the lesser names more time. Been like that since 04. He'll stick with what we know and still wont use the bench.

If he does this week then blow me down but it'll require one almighty change of behaviour.
