So looking back at team lists, the only times we have had a spine of 9 Brailey, 7 Pearce, 1 Ponga was in rounds 1 and 2 in season 2020. We won both those games comfortably, although Brailey played most of the second one with a torn ACL.
This is the first time we have had a spine of 9 Brailey, 7 Pearce, 6 Clifford, 1 Ponga.

I’m happy to see Young there still. I wonder whether coming off the bench will see Klemmer bust out a few off loads since he will miss the initial softening up period…if you can call it that any more.

Much better looking side..well on paper at least. Lets start a winning streak on :)
Whats the issue with Croker? he not match fit yet or something

Probably the strongest side we can possibly name and the first time we’ll have a full strength spine since Round 2, 2020. I really hope Ponga is 100% because he and Clifford are an exciting combination. I just hope we see Clifford retain the kicking duties and leave Pearce to run the footy. Fingers crossed with Pearce back he can help tighten up our edge defence. I like the fact that both Saifiti’s are starting, Jacob has been immense for us the last month or two. Klemmer coming on fresh against a tiring Warriors pack is a good decision too IMO.

We need to win this, our season hinges on this result.

Saifitis started well together last week,, better then Klem and DSaf,,no wonder AOB kept them in the starting line up

I'm very excited by this team.
First choice spine together with the twin towers starting.

Hunt is a huge inclusion also.

Please 🙏 don't let me down.
How good a buy has Hunt been he does everything well and this is the first time he's been injured i think .

If j saf keeps his form up we may lose both of the them to origin in the near future.
I hope thats exactly what Daniel is saying to Jacob . If we go out there together brother and smash this warriors big pack we have every chance of playing for NSW together, with the added....Lets show them how to play footy .... Or something like that .
