    Levi, didn't think about that hey, he probably gets a run next week. If Watson needs to spend time on the sideline, gives Lamb & Levi their chance to prove their worth to the side. All up to them now, if they don't take it with both hands, it will only be their own fault.

    Barnett didn't look right, Moga in due to no alternative unless Naden is good, Levi on bench to relieve Griffin to play 13 after 20 mins or so.

    Went for the obvious but with King on the bench for size against this Dragons pack - also, he smashed Korbin last year so hoping he smashes Tariq in this one.

    Would rather Heighington over Buhrer, Buhrer was rolled through tonight

    Buhrer was all at sea alas and not rolled over but trampled on.

    Ross to reggies to wake him up the season has actually started. Barnett did not look at all fit after his knock against the Raiders.

    Be careful what you wish for, if you punt the dawg you get Sio.

    Ross and Moga to reggies for a wake up call and to work on combinations. Dennise and Sio in.

    Messing with combinations four rounds into the season isn’t going to get us anywhere. Sio and Denniss aren’t going to be any better than what we already have. These blokes just need to be drilled at training to get the stuff they got wrong last night right, Moga/Ross in particular need to be a hell of a lot smarter against the Dragons otherwise it’ll be a field day for them on that flank.

    I think Moga needs to realise that Ross isn't a train track winger and Ross needs to realise he is never going to be as big as corey oates

    Agreed, Ross & Moga are still our best options. Just a matter of them getting some cohesion together with games played. Denniss, Sio, Naden etc. aren't going to be an improvement.

    Denniss had a fantastic pre season and if you were picking on form, he is well ahead of Moga, who had a very poor pre season, even after he started full contact. Naden is a myth. Nice looking style of a player, but Ponga literally ran circles around him for fun.

    Levi missed 9 tackles in reserve grade. Last time he missed that many was when he was playing with severe back pain, so i'd like to know what the story is before picking him. In his first 2 games of reserve grade he had the highest tackle efficiency in the side.

    Can't carry 2 light weights on the bench against St George, it is either Buhrer or Levi and as Buhrer did not seem to impress last outing maybe give Levi a chance off the Bench where he can relieve Griffin after the softening up period. Size is important as their pack is substantial and bullied the opposition last night, they are tough and mobile as they lay a perfect platform for the halves.

    Moga and Ross need to learn to combine in Game situations, but if they play like last night Dragons will annihilate them as a combination.

    Lamb gets his chance to partner with Pearce (will need to be better than on the weekend)

    Ponga best sit back a bit deeper, the way Widdop was short kicking to space, he will be busy cleaning up, if he does play up in the line our wingers better sort out who will drop back to cover the back of field.

    Our forwards appear balanced and are working well in defense but the Middles need to bash hard up the middle to combat the tactics that Dragons use.

    Brown seems to want a utility for injury cover.
    Sam Stone played most of a game at centre after Meaney went off injured and has even done time at 5/8 as a junior.
    He has had a decent start to the season.
    He is worth considering as a utility.
