36-20 after 72 - Jake Saifiti is on for Pasami Saulo
Pasami Saulo replaces Starford toa with 4 minutes to go.
God knows who is playing what position at this stage.
fulltime 36-20 to Manly - we seem to have lost Guerra, McGhie, Best and Toa to injury and finished the game with our only 13 fit players, and we started the game with a forward short on the bench.
What’s going on with Best and Toa? Two of our most promising backs keep getting injured. How many times is that just this year alone?
Too much gym. They are pretty sizeable blokes. Get back to being fit. Their bodies can't take the strain of gym and field work.
Toa seems to have played 75 minutes, got the second highest number of fantasy points after Hoy, and picked up an ankle injury in the last 5 minutes.
I think Best just has a recurring hamstring strain that just won't come good.
Good thing under 20s has a bye this week.
7 under 20s players named for reserve grade - 4 or 5 of them playing their first senior game, including most of the under 20s forward pack that has been going so well.
1. Jacob Gagai
2. Kiah Cooper,
3. Tautau Moga,
4. Mitch Andrews,
5. Toby Marks, under 20s winger having his second game of seniors
6. Chris Randall,
7. Bayden Searle under 20s halfback having his 3rd game of seniors
8. Jirah Momoisea,
9. Zac Woolford,
10. Tevita Alifa
11. Ben Talty, under 20s second row on debut
12. Brodie Jones,
13. Zac Hosking.
14. Dylan Lucas, under 20s utility on debut
15. Lewis Hamilton, under 20s second row on debut
16. Jack Cameron, under 20s prop on debut
17. Daniel Ticehurst, under 20s prop on debut
18. Elijah Rasiga under 20s winger on debut.
Hoy, Croker, Huth, Russell and Crossland are all playing origin under 20s.
This game is on Fox.
Coverage starts at 5.15.
Will be a good chance to see how the 20's guys go. I miss the televised U20's.
Also interesting to see how Moga responds.
Lee's spot will be up for grabs for atleast 8 weeks. Hopfully Moga can turn it around and become a 1st grader again.
I'm looking forward to seeing Daniel Ticehurst play.
I can't recall seeing him play before and I read a report saying he came over from NZ for under 18s last year but was injured all season. This year he has finally got on the field and is going from strength to strength till he was arguably our best forward in under 20s a few games ago. Jack Cameron is a prop from the local comp who is putting in some strong performances.
Looks like the team is 1-17 as named.
This could get ugly.
4-0 to the knights , try to Toby Marks. All knights so far.
8-0 try to Gagai , I think the Warriors winger should get a try assist for that, he had a shocker.
10-0 up after 10 minutes.
Geez that call was rough
Searle finds touch like Pearce
12-0, warriors have been terrible and we have been a bit better
Ticehurst is a big boy
Searle is a very good defender, but is trying too hard
Jones is strong
I suspect they’ll still beat us if they can string together 20 decent minutes, but they aren’t looking like it just now.
Gagai having one of his days where he can’t catch
