That is up early - obviously a couple of players hampered by injury with 2 extras being named. I thought Kite might have been pushed into the 2nd row

Nothing surprising though I will be very surprised if Tezza makes the field.

Boys will give 100% and the weather makes it a lucky dip!!

Well the game plan looks obvious from the bench.

4 props - one will be omitted obviously. Enough rain to stop flashy play will give us an advantage with pure size used.

Good to see bryant starting - he has taken hecks place and is doing a good job.

The backrow will be there primarily to defend i feel, both tutt and stewy2 are better defenders, hand bag will have to run hard out wide.

good point Fluffy, its just that Steppa has given someone the impression that hes pissed off about being dropped, dont think there was a rally planned for him!

The team doesn't look too bad. If the young guys can do what young guys are supposed to do when they get a chance we should win. (That is they go out fired up trying to force their way in)
