    If Watson is out id love to see Buhrer at 6 with Mann off the bench for Levi or any backline players.

    Let's see Brown roll out something unprecedented with players named from 1 to 17 in order of age, height or weight.

    Failing that, if Watson isn't fit then I'd like to see Lino given another run with Mann staying at 14. Not knocking Buhrer, but we have better options in the halves these days.

    You gotta understand Wobbles 88 is an old Manly man and as you know, they stick together like baby crap to a bunny rug!

    Brown possibly considering giving Levi another 80 minute challenge this week? No secret Brown has been very interested in getting an 80 minute hooker going, he has mentioned it in press conferences several times.

    Wasn’t named in the team list on Tuesday so screw him. If he wins he should be available the following week.

    I hope the refs keep an eye on De Belin if he plays. He'll try and screw the scrum for certain.

    De Belin has lost his appeal, so can't play against us.

    He also has to pay the NRL's costs, that has to sting. Will go a long way to discourage an appeal or another player challenging the rule.

    It seems a bit funny that if either a wing or 5/8 drops out with injury, we'll bring in Josh King to replace them (and shuffle either Mann or Sione into the starting side).

    I'd say the Dragons will cover it, as they were a joint applicant also I believe.

    Not really that funny.

    Dragons are a team that wins games by dominating the middle, Mann can cover 1-9 if need be.
    Sione can cover 3-13 if need be.

    I'm fine with King getting the call up if Lee goes down, Mann to wing is not the best option but still ok.
    Sione can come on at 6 if Levi needs a rest and Watson can go to 9 for a bit.
    Our 6 isnt needed to do much other then catch the ball and be sound in D.
    Hence why I'd like Buhrer to get a run at it.
    Has both those attributes sorted and can deliver a pretty good kick also if asked of him.
