    One hooker didn't work too well for us last week.

    Stating the obvious but we really need to turn one of these gallant defeats into a win before morale plummets and if we don't get it done this week things will get ugly the next few weeks. We tend to defend better against teams that play a more structured style of footy rather than play off the back of offloads so hopefully we steal a win here and give us some confidence heading into games against the Titans, Raiders and Panthers because otherwise I can see us copping a few floggings and things going down hill very fast. I expect the cowboys to win and quite frankly after their last home performance and the way Green will have responded to that dreadful first half performance last week I think the Cowboys will win well 32-6.

    It's pretty sad how the cows can be missing 3/4s of their spine and number one prop yet still look like easy winners.

    Doubt it will be as easy as some are making out. Think it will be a very close game. But at least I got the old injuries excuse :lol:

    Can't they just give us Ray Thompson to play halfback if they aren't gonna play him?

    We'll win a close game with Ponga throwing an intercepted pass to gift the Knights the try to level the scores. Hodkinson kicks the conversion from the sideline after the bell to win the game but his leg flies off landing in row 17 and he retires immediately.

    Stone isn't really ready for firstgrade, but he is definitely a player who will be around for years to come.
    If Stone and Tupou end upon the field at the same time, there's 20 years of club history - throw in Sione too.

    We really need a win this week, set us up for the spoon-bowl game the week after.

    Geez I just realized we're leaving ourselves pretty short if Levi ever goes down during the week leading up to pre-game warm-up. Can't be running around with Feeney/Hokko as our one & only hooker option during a game.

    Brown is sending a very clear signal to Tyler Randell that he isn't wanted, but it's crazy to keep him out of the 21 when all the other options are going down injured.
