Now this is over and we can all take a deep breath, I'll put this out there. Not only do I think the NRL has got the suspensions about right, I also think they have inadvertently done us a favour. This weeks game is basically a non-event to the point that a week ago there was debate on this site as to whether we should rest players. Well, the NRL has done it for us. Snake (who's now injured anyway) could always have done with a week off due to injuries he's had. With Foz's Kamikaze style, I'd be amazed if he isn't playing with some sort of niggle, as most players are are the stage of the season. Gift is a big loss, but I believe we have the cattle to get to the GF without him, then to have him fresh for the GF could be what gets us over the line.
