    Billy, correct me if I’m wrong but it seemed that Stone might have been switched to centre during that game.

    Stone came on to replace Moga, but I think they moved Jones wider and Stone to second row, which seems odd because it was clear in the Warriors game that Stone is much faster than Jones.

    Same 17 that played last week named.
    Hopefully Watson & Lee are fit.
    Moga is not in the squad at all.

    Dragons still have a strong side.

    Hopefully with plenty of pressure on Hunt we can get the points on the board to shut them out early.

    Moga not named in reserve grade either.
    Brodie Jones is named at 4 and Musgrove at 3.

    Ruptured plantar fascia and going to play this week. Surely they are kidding themselves.

    With the side they have named, if Lee and Watson drop out, the only option would be Sione to centre, Hunt to wing and either Lino or Buhrer to 5/8.

    Mann will fill one of the positions.

    Oh it is! Imagine the whole bottom of your foot on fire as well as throb and can't walk properly for weeks. Pain goes all along bottom of foot, up the heel and into the calf.

    Most painful and frustrating injury I have ever had!
    It took 4 cortizone injections directly into the heal and months on the sideline before it came good!
    That was 20 years ago so hopefully treatment and recovery time has improved.

    Yeah, I had plantar fasciitis recently which was bad enough, but a rupture I can only imagine.

    Great, horrible record in that one.

    It's fun but one advantage is it heals stretched so more then likely won't happen as often. When i had plantar fasciitis my podiatrist suggested to keep running till it ruptured. Wasn't fun.

    If Lee is out this weekend, would it be worth putting Ramien in to left centre? Sione used to playing on the right, Ponga at his most creative on the left, would he see more clean ball?

    Might get more ball but he's def a right side player with his carry and fend.

    I'm fairly confident this week because the Dragons have a few glaring weaknesses in defence, we all saw KP give Ravalawa nightmares last time we played them, our attack is operating much smoother now so I'd expect results down their right hand side again.

    Also Jai Field isn't the best defender nor is he the biggest fella on the field, hopefully Barnett and/or Sione get some good ball and can target him.

    Nope for mine Sione is the fill in so move him wherever the gaps are.

    If Watson is out I reckon we will go better with Mann at 6, Buhrer off the bench and no mid-game switching.

    Sounds like it’ll be Mann at 6, Sione at centre, Hymel wing and Buhrer bench if Watson and Lee aren’t passed fit.
