    Even without Saulo, Buhrer and King, it still looks like a solid forward pack.

    They are training still - still doing ballwork sessions and need a full team to run the drills.

    yes.
    For the last 3 games he has scored 73, 71, and 50 fantasy points, averaging around 150 metres and 40 tackles - but he has been playing lock forward and I don't think he's had a run at hooker at all in reserves this year.

    His stats say that whatever injury has been holding him back for the last year or so, he is over it, and is back to the sort of workload that he was putting in a few years ago.

    I still don’t get who he’ll replace, unless someone from the backline moved to fullback to accomodate him. However none of our back 5 deserve to be dropped.

    Lee is suposably playing fullback if Ponga is rested.

    All back 5 going well, Moga is likely cover for Lee who would move tp f/b should Ponga not play. That allows Mann to stay 6 and Watson at 9 with bench likely Buhrer, Gavet, Ese’ese, and Sione. Start King if Klemmer out. Saulo cover for Glasby if required, still a strong side.

    If Klemmer is out they should think about using Saulo instead of King.
    King is mostly a strong defender and Saulo makes big runs. Without Klem, we'll need Saulo's skills more than we need King's.

    Oh okay. Be a bit different to see Lee at fullback. Bit worrying but he’s been consistent thankfully. Just lose a bit of Ponga spark if he doesn’t back up.

    Starting team - Braydon Musgrove is replaced by Justin Worley, who will be playing his first game of seniors. Worley usually plays wing in under 20s.

    They’ll probably shuffle that back line around, wouldn’t surprise me if both those centres start on the wing.
