Wish hopoate would play fullback but in pouring rain It’s probably best to not risk him !! Just being named is a great start maybe it’s a way of trying to convince him to stay at manly

I can't believe Sir Loin will play. Duck will take his place in the second row which may mean we'll see Guaca for the first time, on the bench.

Excited for Funa to finally play centre. Hoping Hoppa is a late inclusion on the wing over Jorge. Saw some Manly fans discussing on twitter that Des did a similar thing with Tevita Funa's debut and kept it under wraps to alleviate as much pressure as possible - hoping he's doing the same thing here

I’m praying to God Des shifts Elliot to centre and debuts young Hoppa at FB! Great to see Cust back in
Don’t think it will happen but I’m keen to see this kid play so any positional inclusion would be good.

Finally Des is making some positive selections (of course my point of view, perhaps not others), though I feel its been forced on him through injuries. Certainly good Cust is back and Funa in the side. Especially pleased to see Hopoate's name listed even if only as a reserve. Still no Schuster, but I guess FINALLY Des is getting a bit of bite in that backline. They just might have a chance now against the Warriors.

Des had Funa in the 21 man squad for the majority of last year but never ended up playing.

Hopefully that's not the case with Hopoate.

Des's intentions will be much clearer when the squad gets cut to 19 at 18:00 Thursday 6/8/20

I thought the same thing, but he could've named others instead who were more likely eg Harper, Sipley
