    If Jacob has another game where he dominates he'll have to be picked.

    Moga is probably going to be suspended after going on a headhunting mission in reserve grade - on report twice and in the sin bin.

    Hope Browny is watching the Warriors v Storm atm.

    Im pretty confident if we defend as well as we are and play as quick as we are, we'll beat the storm.

    He has played about 45 minutes as has Saulo. Can't tell how he is going from the commentary, but it sounds like we did a lot of good defence and didn't have much ball.

    Saulo only had 2 runs yesterday, in 3 minutes on the field.
    Souths also played Billy Brittian, who had 13 minutes and had a decent amount of involvement in that time.

    That'd be my pick for the 17 as well. Lino was solid last night but I think Buhrer offers more as a 14 and it'll be minimal disruption to what has worked for us over last few weeks.

    I'd use Lino if he's in good form because that guy is our plan B if our match winner is out for any reason.
    If we can get Lino up to speed with the side, it might turn out to be really handy.

    I agree with this I like that starting side prediction, but I drop Buthrer for Lino. That's just me I think Lino offers more spark plus like Billy said bring him up to speed with game plan etc

    If he didn't play in reserves, we would essentially be resting him for a week & making him short of a run, that's how little time he got on the field.

    Only ran 80 metres and made 29 tackles 0 missed, but it was a largely defensive game for us.
    Saulo was our only forward to Break 100 metres with 112.
    Chris Randall topped the fantasy points with 53 for his 47 tackles, 2 missed in 80 minutes at hooker.
    Tex Hoy and Beau Fermor both got 50 fantasy points - Hoy ran 203 metres and scored our only try - Fermor ran 94 metres and made 43 tackles, 2 missed.

    no point changing our side up too much. If our forwards can continue their form i think this is a winnable game!

    Very winnable. Melbourne looked clunky that opening half vs the Warriors, then did usual Melbourne things in the second half. Almost full strength for both sides so should be a good contest. This will be our biggest test, more so than the Chooks or Bunnies.

    another solid performance from Saifiti vs Storm and surely he has to be considered for SOO?
