Karl Lawton at halfback. I don't even know what to think. Why isn't Humphreys getting a shot?
Seibold must have something against the poor kid, who continuously performs each week in reserve grade and is constantly getting overlooked and pushed aside. They are going to lose him at this rate and he should leave for how he's being treated, he's been at manly since sg ball and gets nothing but high wraps from the media and his teammates but the coach isn't picking him

I would say that Sipley or Waddell (perhaps both) will drop out on game day, with Lawton going to the backrow and Humphries going to halfback. If both drop out, we will see Parker go onto the bench as well.
This is probably the likelihood. Given how they looked on Sunday surely they don't play. Also Seibold seems to have a new-found affection for a Des-style late change, with last week's Simpkin, Brown and Lawton switches.

Lawton certainly doesn't have the greatest record in the 7:


Have to wonder who our goalkicker will be, too. Don't think Brooks is one. I'd assume Humphreys would if he comes into the side.

From that team being named, i can only really see GCKT being dropped for Humphreys.

I doubt Seibs would name Navale or James in the 17 just to not have them play.

Condon would be a lock to play as we need big men.

I just cannot see Sipley and Waddell playing against Souths, it’s BS. Sips has done his knee again and is unlikely to play for the rest of the season. Waddell could barely walk at the end of the game and I don’t care how good a physio you are, you are not going to fix that in a week.

I reckon it’s smoke and mirrors and Humphreys and Parker will come into the side on game day.

Yep, I can't see how Sipley plays. Waddell maybe, but Seibs said on Sunday that Sipley had done his MCL again. Lawton at half just wouldn't make sense when we are going to be so short in the forwards. Anyway, I suspect (as others have) that this is just to get a team out there and that it will change a lot before run on.

This is still deadset worse than the pride jersey saga. But the ins for next game (Rnd 18) are insane. Probably the biggest ever team turn-around ever going from that to this across just one bye:

1. Hopoate
2. Saab
3. Koula
4. Turbo
5. Garrick
6. Brooks
7. DCE
8. Aloiai
9. Simpkin
10. Bullemor
11. Olakau'atu
12. Burbo
13. Jake
14. Lawton
15. Brown
16. Navale (I think he's very good, if he performs well)
17. Waddell

He hasn’t been treated in any way yet, the team named on Tuesday isn’t a guarantee to be the game day team
He's been kept in the waiting room for 2 years, coach said he's leaped gckt and Lawton but doesn't get a start. Wakeham gets arrested Humphreys moves to half and plays awesome week in and out, finally gets his chance to be named and isnt. Instead someone with no kicking game is. Humphreys must be tired of it at this point. Even if he goes start this weekend what does that say to him? I'd be walking out the front door if I was him

So which one of Brooks or DCE should have made way for him this year?

Neither, of course, humphreys shouldn't of been picked over our current halves but why not choose him over Lawton who has never played half? Two years in a row seibold has come out and said humphreys has been a top performer in preseason and would be pushing for a starting role but he hasn't. He was players player last year and still hasn't got any chance to prove his talent in the top level despite him performing each week in reserve cup at half
