    Good team, only change I would make would be Degois onto the bench and Hilder to start. Hilder has outshone Degois in the Hooking department this season and deserves to start.

    De Gois really hasn't bounced back after his injury. His current form really questions whether we should continue with him starting.

    Agree with you kajee. His work has been very sub-standard and last Sunday threw three or four 'shockers'!

    De Gois is rreally struggling to come back from this injury. It's certainly not a lack of ability holding him back. Wouldn't be surprised to see Hilder starting however I'm happy to stick with De Gois somewhere in the side as we all know what he is capable of and the only way he is going to get back to where he was is through playing matches and gaining confidence.

    I don't think we'll see the best of him again until next season

    Wes Naquaima, Why. Edwards or Mika to come in for him, im sick of his 10 minute run where he does jack ****. There is really no point having him as a bench player he is a fullback or centre not a second rower.

    As stated last week, Wes is there incase Rogers has a shocker, he played well last week, and hence Wes wasn't needed

    Even though we really have no other options im still not sold on rogers hes just so inconsistent. i like the addition of Wes again maybe put him 2 fullback move Gids the hooker for De Gois, bit of spark needed there.

    Wes fills the spot for us that every other club in the league also has on their bench. The difference for us is Gidley plays the role of utility, moving up to the line if needed with Wes going to fullback.

    I actually think Wes has been pretty good the last two weeks, in defence as much as anything.

    I was a bit critical of Wes being on the bench at the start of the year, but I think he is doing an awesome job off the bench the past few weeks. He has helped us a lot when Dodge has his brain snaps.

    I agree, one tackle last week he made was "Gidlyesque" (thats my word:noway:) The last defender and it was a great try saver. His defence of late hasnt been bad... for once.

    Yeah, he is growing on me a bit, i'll admit. But i still think if we're going to use him off the bench, it has to be somewhere in the backline. He just cannot handle big forwards running at him and he doesn't have the frame for a backrower. Maybe late in the game, we could give him some game time at FB and slot Gids at hooker for a little while just to give us some spark out of dummy half which we've been lacking. But at the same time, i love Gids at fullback, so i'm not sure if that's the way to go.

    If we use Naiqama to come on and play in the backline, i wouldn't mind keeping him there. But if we're using Naiqama to come and play in the backrow, I'd much rather use someone more suited to that position like Mika
