    Watson misses next week. Same side as yours except 14. Levi.

    I'll go with Billy with possibly any two of Heighinton, Buhrer and Jacob on bench.

    Browny will go with the same team and I have to agree. Can’t break that winning team just yet. Maybe Griffin to do a smaller stint with Watson at hooker earlier, meaning Lamb on earlier.

    2. Kenny-Dowall
    3. Mata’utia
    4. Moga
    5. Ross
    6. Lamb
    7. Pearce
    8. Ese’ese
    9. Griffin
    10. Lillyman
    11. Buhrer
    12. Guerra
    13. Barnett

    14. Watson
    15. Fitzgibbon
    16. D. Saifiti
    17. J. Saifiti

    18. Levi

    Hard to change a winning team, but:
    - Lamb should be five-eighth. Need another playmaker/kicker to take pressure off Pearce and help our attack.
    - Watson bench hooker for now with Levi chomping at the bit behind him.
    - Buhrer should never play lock. Offers no go forward. He should be a skilful edge backrower like he was at Manly where he easily played his best.
    - If anyone spells Barnett at lock, play Guerra there with Fitzgibbon replacing him.
    - Nothing against Heighington, but have the youthful/impactful J. Saifiti over him off the bench.

    Same team with Lamb on the bench. Sione to wing and SKD to centre to try and achieve sound defence.

    Same team as round one. I like Lamb off the bench fresh and adding another dimension to our attack plus I think Watson should be given more time at six.

    I disagree. Fairly easy to see attack one dimensional with Watson at 6. Lamb will be our 6, it's just a matter of when Brown wakes up from his dream.

    Kirtsux , I agree - they had their first win, don’t change much, but learn.
    Swifter delivery from Griffin , but did enough in defence alone to warrant opening hooker for another week.
    On defence I have always believed defense wins games Guerra was strong on Manly “bully boys” and Pongas try saver showed true grit.
    Conner was quiet at , utility value is obviously his forte, which opens the question does this team have a spot for Burher ?
    Middle forwards just need to knuckle down and cart the ball up with intensity too much fancy footwork before the line affected post contact metres
    Ponga Looks like the real deal
    Pearce looks to be enjoying his role
    The centres didn’t really get a chance to shine but there is work needed there.
    What a game, what a night - I love football

    I don’t necessarily disagree I think we look better with Lamb too but I would like to see Watson have a little more time their and give our combinations a chance to click.

    agreed was interesting that nathan brown in the press conference said that connor watson was like kurt gidley in that he was a great utility. We already know that but having brown come out and say that i think he has already made his mind up. It will be interesting to how long connor stays at 6.

    Get over it. People are allowed to have a different opinion to you.

    I’d be happy to go the same side as last night. Everyone should keep their spot.

    He was very selective with his wording I thought. It’s difficuilt because the circumstances have changed since signing Watson. It’s a good head ache to have but you also don’t want to have conflict in the team.

    Not much mention of Levi last night.

    Unchanged team for me... Watson will get a couple more chances to impress at 6.

    Erm what? Member has had his opinion all along. I've had mine. It's a forum of discussion. If you had your knickers any tighter youd look like borat.

    I think when we have our first loss you may well see that dan but not this week's selection.

    The big problem is where Browny is going to fit Danny Levi as Nugget was brought here to be starting dummy half because of his rock solid defence.
