    Lee is probably out.
    Moga to centre and Hunt to wing is my tip.

    I’d be happy with Hunt staying centre, Moga to wing but either way is ok.

    Yeah, although if Watson is out, I think they'll put Mann at 6 rather than Lino (obviously could be wrong). If they do, it could be:

    1. Ponga
    2. Moga
    3. Hunt
    4. Ramien
    5. SKD
    6. Mann
    7. Pearce
    8. Klemmer
    9. Levi
    10. DSaf
    11. Fitz
    12. Barnett
    13. Herman
    14. Buhrer
    15. Glasby
    16. Gavet
    17. Sione

    Moga just spent a week out injured again didn't he? Doubt they'll play him. Mann to the wing, King back on the bench is what they'll probably do.

    Moga is a fair chunk of our salary cap to not use if he is ready to go. He's probably on more than Hunt, Lee and Ramien combined.

    If Mann plays then need some versatility on bench so it’s Buhrer. If Watson out then Mann to 5/8 and Moga must play.

    This is a danger game. I’m more worried about this game than I am about the Roosters game to be honest.

    I agree plus we just cant seem to beat the dragons these days. I think we have more in attack than they do but the Dragons will be looking to get back to winning and staying in the top 8.
    Im not worried about the Roosters game they just smashing everyone at the moment even with the injuries they had this week which would destroy most clubs they still win and win good against a top raiders team.( I hear that if your on the moon you can see the Great Wall of China and the Roosters Sombrero)

    Although most centres can probably play wing easily, Moga and Hunt are two guys who I don't think would suit playing there, although with Ross retired we don't have any other options do we??

    I feel this is another really big game for us, the Dragons are a great side but are beatable at this point in time, a win here will give us confidence and keep building momentum from four straight wins leading into the Roosters game. I don't usually like looking too far ahead but the next games are really tough, we need to bank these two points.

    If Lee and Watson are both out I think Sione will play centre rather than Moga at this point, with Mann playing 5/8 and King moving onto the bench, if Watson is fit but Lee isn't, I'd say Mann will play wing.

    I'm hoping at least for a good showing against them. None of the beatings they have given us in the recent past. Saints is one club the losses are hard to stomach against as my brother in law follows them.

    If we win great, but a good outing essential. Roosters game will prob be a loss.

    Brown talking about Moga and Mann seemed to be saying he could use Mann at centre and look at someone new to bring into the side if Moga isn't ready. By new, he might just mean Buhrer or Lino, or even a Prop like Saulo, but he might mean a rookie (which is what it sounded like he was saying). As far as I can see, the only rookies he could use are Brodie Jones and Zac Woolford.
    Woolford is the obvious choice, because we are apparently still on our never ending quest to find a perfect hooker, but it's also interesting that Jones played 80 minutes at centre in his last game and 40 minutes at centre when Moga went off the week before.
    In my opinion, Jones went terrible at centre, with the warriors outside backs running rings around him. I think Jones should be measuring up an 8 or 13 jersey instead of a 3 or 4. He is way too slow for the backs.
